Waiters, Irving lead Cavaliers over Wizards

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Dion Waiters scored 24 points and Kyrie Irving had 23 points and tied a career high with 12 assists as the Cleveland Cavaliers broke their six-game skid with a 115-113 win over the Washington Wizards on Friday night.

The Cavaliers played without their second leading scorer, Luol Deng, who was out with flu-like symptoms. Irving missed Friday's shootaround because of illness, but managed to hit all 13 free throws he attempted.

John Wall led Washington with 32 points and 10 assists. The Wizards trailed by 14 early in the fourth quarter. Wall led a late charge with nine points in the game's last two minutes. Martell Webster the second of two late 3-pointers with 2.9 seconds to go to cut the lead to 115-113.
