Irving-less Cavaliers down Raptors 103-92

Posted: Updated:

CLEVELAND (AP) - Rookie Dion Waiters scored 23 points, Shaun Livingston added 15 and the Cleveland Cavaliers overcame a horrendous start and playing without injured All-Star Kyrie Irving for the second straight game, beating the Toronto Raptors 103-92 on Wednesday night.

The Cavs made only 1 of their first 15 shots, but recovered and finished February at 7-5, their first winning month since March 2010, when LeBron James was still around.

Wayne Ellington added 13 points and Luke Walton had seven rebounds and seven assists for the Cavs, who closed with a 10-2 run.

DeMar DeRozan scored 34 and Rudy Gay had 24 for the Raptors. Toronto was within 93-90 when Waiters hit a 15-foot jumper with 1:43 left.

Irving sat out with a hyperextended right knee, an injury he sustained in practice.
