Kevin Love returned from knee surgery, but Kyrie Irving made an early exit with knee problems of his own as the Cleveland Cavaliers toppled the Utah Jazz 91-83 on Thursday.

The Cavaliers can thank their lucky stars they still have a healthy four-time NBA MVP LeBron James, who was more than happy to pick up the slack.

As soon as Irving realized his wonky left knee was acting up again he went to James and asked “have you got this?” James, of course said ‘Yes’, and responded by pumping in 17 of his game-high 33 points in the fourth quarter.
