Kyrie Irving on Why Cavs Are ‘Team To Beat’ In The East


It seems like Kyrie Irving has his swagger back.

Stepping away from the issues plaguing his love life — the Cavs star point guard made it clear who the true Beast of the East really is.

“I feel like we’re the team to beat (in the Eastern Conference),” point guard Kyrie Irving said following Thursday’s blowout win over the Brooklyn Nets, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.

“I mean, honestly, it’s open season until we get into the playoffs, so I have a lot more confidence than I think anyone realizes in our team and what’s going on in our locker room.”

The Cavaliers hold a 2 1/2-game lead over the Toronto Raptors in the Eastern Conference — and a victory over Brooklyn brought the Cavs’ record to 53-22, matching their season record from a year ago with seven games left to play.
