Cavs' Kyrie Irving out for Game 3 with injured knee

CLEVELAND (AP) Cavaliers All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving will miss his second straight Eastern Conference finals game with an injured left knee.

Irving, who has been dealing with tendinitis, was ruled out of Sunday's Game 3 about 45 minutes before tip-off. Wearing a new knee brace, Irving put himself through a rigorous workout on the Quicken Loans Arena floor about three hours before the game started. Although he moved well, the Cavs decided to rest him for at least one more game.

Cleveland leads the best-of-seven series 2-0.
