Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Kyrie Irving scored 20 of his 35 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 105-100 win over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.

Irving was coming off an impressive showing at All-Star weekend in Houston and scored 11 consecutive points for the Cavaliers as they broke away from an 83-all tie in the final 4:23. His performance brought the crowd at Quicken Loans Arena to its feet during the final minutes and had Irving pumping his fist on several occasions.

The game featured a matchup between the past two No. 1 overall draft picks - Irving and Hornets center Anthony Davis. Irving made 13 of 22 shots and all 7 of his free throws while having seven assists. Davis had 12 points and four rebounds.
