FRIDAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

Cavaliers 99, Jazz 79: Kyrie Irving recorded his first career triple-double with 21 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds to lead Cleveland over Utah. Irving grabbed his 10th rebound with 4:12 to go to become the first Cleveland player with a triple-double since LeBron James on March 16, 2010, at Detroit. "I was trying to not think about it too much, but my teammates were hollering at me to get one more rebound, Coach (Mike) Brown was telling to get one more rebound, a couple of fans were yelling at me that I need one more," Irving said. "I said, 'I got you guys, don't worry.' "

Suns 116, Pelicans 104: Goran Dragic scored a career-high 40 points, and Phoenix pulled away to beat New Orleans. Dragic, a game-time decision because of a sore right ankle, recorded the first 40-point game for a Sun since Amare Stoudemire's 44 on March 19, 2010.

  • The Pelicans said starting point guard Jrue Holiday has undergone surgery for a stress fracture in his right tibia and will miss the rest of the season.

  • New Orleans forward Tyreke Evans was a late arrival for the game because he was stuck in an elevator at the team hotel. Coach Monty Williams said he took a chance and put Evans in the starting lineup assuming he would free himself in time for the game. Evans arrived about an hour before tipoff.
