Kyrie Irving-Derrick Rose matchup remains on hold
The inaugural meeting between Rose and Cleveland’s second-year point guard Kyrie Irving remains on hold. Irving was an all-star this season but has yet to face Rose. Injuries to both players prevented a meeting last season.
Irving didn’t play against the Bulls on Tuesday because of a sore knee.
“My greatest hope is that No. 1 Derrick Rose comes back and he comes back the old Derrick Rose,” Cleveland coach Byron Scott said. “If that happens, and they get a chance to match up, it will be very interesting. We’re all looking forward to that.”
