The Cleveland Cavaliers came away with a huge 106-101 win in Tuesday's Game 5 against the Chicago Bulls thanks to big performances from LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, who combined for 63 points.

Following the contest, LeBron was celebrating with Cavaliers teammate Tristan Thompson, after which he saw Irving. LeBron told him, "Get your limping ass over here," poking fun at the 23-year-old's nagging injuries.

Despite his multiple ailments, Irving was still able to finish with 25 points on 9-of-16 shooting—so I'm sure he had no problem with LeBron messing around with him.
