Kyrie Irving had 28 points, six rebounds, five assists, four steals and one block to lead the Cavaliers, who were without starting center Anderson Varejao for the fifth straight game due to a bruised right knee. Tyler Zeller filled in for Varejao and contributed 12 points, seven rebounds, one steal, one block and one assist in 37 minutes.

Next up for the Hawks is a home game against the Indiana Pacers Saturday, Dec. 29 at 7 p.m. ET.
