Kyrie Irving vs. Derrick Rose didn't turn out to be quite the marquee matchup it was billed to be as both struggled shooting for most of the Chicago Bulls 96-81 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

By the time Irving (16 points on 5-of-19 shooting) got things going late, Rose had left the game with what appeared to be a minor injury.

 

DEVELOPING: Derrick Rose left game late in 4th quarter with noticeable limp. Knee was looked at & worked on by training staff on bench.

Before he left, Rose had tallied 16 points on 8-of-21 shooting. Still not where he'd like to be, but there was certainly improvement in other areas as he finished the game with seven assists and no turnovers.

Chicago was carried by balanced scoring throughout, Luol Deng, Joakim Noah, Carlos Boozer, Jimmy Butler and Mike Dunleavy all scored in double-figures as well.

For the Cavaliers, the story that may have been bigger than Irving's struggles was the return of Andrew Bynum.

The big man looked extremely sharp in his first start of the season, scoring 11 points on 3-of-5 shooting and collecting six rebounds and two blocks in less than 21 minutes.
