CLEVELAND (AP) Kyrie Irving put on a spectacular show and LeBron James watched it from a front-row seat.

Irving scored a career-high 55 points, breaking the arena record as James sat out with an injury to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to their eighth straight win, 99-94 over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

With James sidelined because of a sprained right wrist, Irving delivered a dazzling, tour-de-force performance. One day before the NBA names its All-Star reserves, Irving put an exclamation point on his resume.
