The Cleveland Cavaliers got back on track to the NBA Finals on Tuesday night, defeating the Boston Celtics, 112-99, behind 42 points from Kyrie Irving and 34 points from LeBron James.

The Cavaliers trailed by as many as 16 points in the second quarter and James even picked up four fouls. However, the Cavaliers’ two top stars got right back on track with the big game they desperately needed after struggling early.

Irving scored 19 points in a five-minute stretch and 33 points in a 19-minute stretch. It was a game that he definitely needed.

“The kid is special,” James told reporters after the game. “I was happy to sit back and watch him. He was born for these moments.”

Four of the five Celtics starters were in double figures. Avery Bradley led the way with 19 points
