Watch: Kyrie Irving swats Jeff Teague, LeBron yams on the other end

As they say, defense leads to offense.

NBA: Utah Jazz at Cleveland Cavaliers David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavaliers trail the Pacers 27-26 after one quarter, but Kyrie Irving and LeBron James combined for an electric series of plays.

The Pacers have had excellent shotmaking early on and Kyrie has stumbled to a 1-7 start from the field, but he’s found three teammates for assists and the team’s energy has been strong and the team closed the quarter on a 6-0 run.

Paul George has led the Pacers with seven points, three rebounds and three assists early on.
