Trans. Apr 4 4:43 ET (Apr 4 4:43 ET ) New Orleans starting point guard Jarrett Jack has been ruled out of the Hornets' game Wednesday night against Denver because of a sore right ankle. The Hornets say reserve center Chris Johnson, who was diagnosed with a concussion after taking a hit to the head in a loss at Phoenix on Sunday, also has been scratched from the lineup Jack has averaged 15.6 points and 6.3 assists this season.
His arms folded across his chest, New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson watched helplessly as three Cleveland players streaked past him on the way to an uncontested layup. Right now, he can't do much about his sinking Knicks either. Kyrie Irving had 37 points and 11 assists and Jarrett Jack added 17 points, leading the Cavs to a 109-94 victory over the hard-to-figure Knicks on Tuesday night. Fresh off an embarrassing 41-point loss at home to Boston on Sunday, New York dropped to 5-15 and made Woodson's future even more uncertain.
ATLANTA -- Kyle Korver set the NBA record for consecutive games with a 3-pointer, Al Horford scored 22 points, and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 108-89 Friday night. Korver's 3 with 5:29 remaining in the first quarter gave him at least one in a record-90th straight game, breaking a tie with Dana Barros (1994-96). Paul Millsap had 16 points and 14 rebounds for the Hawks. Andrew Bynum tied his season high with 20 points and grabbed a season-best 13 rebounds, and Jarrett Jack added 13 points.
CLEVELAND — For people who think the Bulls have it bad in the wake of Derrick Rose’s season ending prematurely, please consider the case of the Cavaliers. Cleveland is 4-12 to start a season in which there were playoff expectations following the re-hiring of head coach Mike Brown, drafting No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett and acquiring the likes of veterans Andrew Bynum, Jarrett Jack and Earl Clark in free agency to pair with the young nucleus of All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, second-year shooting guard Dion Waiters, power forward Tristan Thompson and center Tyler Zeller, as well as holdover big man Anderson Varejao.
WASHINGTON -- Point guard Kyrie Irving matched his career high with 41 points, including nine in overtime, as the Cleveland Cavaliers rallied for their first road win of the season, a 103-96 victory over the Washington Wizards on Saturday night. In a battle against fellow former No. 1 overall pick John Wall, Irving made 14 of 28 field-goal attempts, including four 3-pointers, as the Cavaliers (4-7) snapped a three-game losing streak. Forward Tristan Thompson had 15 points and 12 rebounds, guard Jarrett Jack scored 13 and forward Earl Clark 11 for Cleveland, winner of four straight over the Wizards (2-7). The Wizards, losers of four straight overall, led by 15 points in the first half, but Irving's 3-point shooting rallied the Cavaliers before halftime.
COMMENTARY | The Cleveland Cavs seemed to be one of the most intriguing teams in the NBA before the season started. The team hired former coach Mike Brown and returned a promising young core of players led by the jaw-dropping Kyrie Irving. On top of that, they added Jarrett Jack, Earl Clark, Andrew Bynum, and No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett. Cleveland suffered its worst loss of the season on Wednesday when Minnesota beat it 124-94, and that was just two days after a disappointing 81-point offensive output at Chicago.
COMMENTARY | After three seasons of mediocre play and stockpiling first-round draft picks in the wake of LeBron James' infamous "Decision" to join the Miami Heat, the Cleveland Cavaliers were poised to make the 2013-14 their renaissance season. With the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 draft thanks to the ping-pong balls falling their way for the second time in three seasons, along with a spending spree that improved the roster via free agency -- with the return of the team's all-time winningest coach Mike Brown to boot -- the word "playoffs" was being bandied about locally. While swingman Jarrett Jack's signing was big, the free agent everyone was talking about was oft-injured big man Andrew Bynum. Some around Cleveland felt it was the biggest name free-agent signing in not only team history but also in the city's sports history.
CLEVELAND -- The third time was a charm for Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving. Irving failed to make winning shots at the end of regulation and the first overtime. Irving's driving layup handed the Cavs a heart-stopping 127-125 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena. Coach Mike Brown went with a three-guard offense with Dion Waiters, Jarrett Jack and Irving on the court with big men Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson.
CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers guard Jarrett Jack will miss at least 10 days with inflammation in his left knee and rookie Carrick Felix has a sports hernia.
