CLEVELAND — Kyrie Irving scored a career-high 55 points, breaking the arena record while LeBron James watched from the bench and leading the Cleveland Cavaliers to their eighth straight win, 99-94 over the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday night.

Irving took over with James sidelined with a sprained right wrist. He buried a 3-pointer with 6.4 seconds left to break a 94-94 tie, grabbed a rebound off a missed 3-pointer by Portland’s Damian Lillard, and as many in the crowd chanted “M-V-P” and James danced near the bench, Irving dropped two free throws with 2.1 seconds remaining to seal the win.

Irving broke the previous scoring record at Quicken Loans Arena held by Allen Iverson. His point total was also the highest in the league this season, bettering the 52 scored by Golden State’s Klay Thompson and Minnesota’s Mo Williams.

Irving, who scored 38 on Tuesday in Detroit, made a team record 11 3-pointers and finished 10 of 10 from the free-throw line in a tour-de-force performance. He scored 24 of Cleveland’s final 28 points and 16 of the Cavs’ 20 in the fourth quarter. But it was his long jumper in the final seconds that shook the Q.

With the score tied at 94-all, Irving froze 6-foot-8 forward Nicolas Batum with a move toward the basket before stopping and sinking his 3-last 3-pointer. After the Trail Blazers called timeout, and as the 20,562 fans screamed, James ran onto the floor and greeted his teammate with a chest bump.

James sprained his right wrist on Tuesday, when he fell hard after trying to block a shot against Detroit. James reached out with both arms to brace his fall and said afterward he was scared after breaking his left wrist on a similar play while he was in high school. The team said an MRI revealed the sprain and that James is doubtful for Friday’s game against Sacramento.

Until he’s ready, Irving is ready to carry the load.

LaMarcus Aldridge, playing his second game since deciding to delay thumb surgery until after the season, scored 38 to lead the Trail Blazers, who have dropped six of seven. Lillard added 14 on just 4 of 19 shooting.

Irving was nearly unstoppable in the first half.

He scored 11 points in the final 1:39 of the first quarter, a mere appetizer for his scoring spree. He drove past Lillard for several layups and when Portland’s speedy guard gave him some space Irving made him pay by dropping six 3-pointers, including one that had James ranting on the sideline.

Irving beat Lillard with a cross-over dribble and then stepped back behind the line to drain a 3, giving Cleveland a 54-38 lead. James was out of his seat speaking to coach David Blatt when Irving launched his shot and James returned to the bench screaming about his teammate’s on-court eruption.

LOS ANGELES — Matthew Brendan Warner, 30, of Newhall, Calif., is accused of sexually abusing and

killing his 19-day-old daughter, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced on Tuesday.

Warner faces one count each of murder, assault on a child causing death, torture, oral copulation or

sexual penetration with a child 10 years old or younger and aggravated sexual assault of a child, Deputy

District Attorney Julie Kramer said in a news release.

Arraignment was scheduled for Tuesday but was continued to Feb. 18. Bail was set at $2.25 million.

If convicted of all charges, Warner faces a maximum penalty of life in prison.

According to the criminal complaint, the murder and sexual assault happened on Friday.

Deputies with the Santa Clarita Valley Station said Warner and his wife came to the station Friday

night and reported their baby girl missing from their home.

The child’s body was discovered the next morning in the front cab of a Nissan pickup truck in a parking

lot in the 23630 block of Newhall Avenue, about a half-mile from where the child lived. Warner was

arrested on suspicion of murder.

The baby’s grandmother said neighbors saw Warner leave their apartment complex with a bundle.

She says he later told his wife that their baby was missing.

The baby girl’s mother has not been arrested and will likely not face any charges. Detectives say she is

distraught, but cooperating in the investigation. Her name has not been released.

A family’s pet ferrets chewed off part of a one-month-old child’s face in a “horrific” mauling, police in

Delaware County, Pennsylvania tell NBC10.

“This is the most horrific thing I’ve seen happen to a child 45 years in this town,” Darby Police Chief

Robert Smythe said Friday.

As many as three ferrets chewed on the baby girl’s face as she was buckled into a car seat sitting on

the floor at about 3:30 p.m. Thursday, inside a home in Darby, Pennsylvania, the police chief said.

“The ferrets did chew the infant’s nose, top lip and cheek area. They had eaten that area away,” Smythe

said.

The girl’s mother had gone upstairs when the mauling took place. She heard the baby screaming and

when she came back downstairs found a ferret on the child, according to Smythe. The mother threw the

animal aside and called for help.

It’s unclear how long it took the mother to respond to the child’s cries.

“There’s a one-month-old laying there and anywhere from one to three animals are eating it while the

child is still alive and screaming. Now, how long does it take you to get downstairs to get to your kid,”

the police chief angrily asked. “You think that much flesh would be gone by the time you get down there?”

The parents, who Smythe said have developmental disabilities, told detectives the ferrets were in a fabric

cage, but somehow got out. They were later destroyed and are being testing for rabies.

The girl was taken to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and underwent emergency surgery. Doctors

placed two stents in her nose so she could breathe and she is currently listed in stable condition, Smythe

said.

NBC10 did speak with the girl’s father and he corroborated police’s account of the event. He said his

daughter will need multiple surgeries to recover from the attack.

Officers that responded to the call were so disturbed by the scene they were unable to sleep last night,

the chief said.

The family was living in deplorable conditions and the home, in the 300 block of Poplar Road, is infested

with fleas or mites, according to police. There were several other animals in the house including six cats,

two dogs and two turtles.

The only food in the home was a jar of peanut butter, can of cranberry and some juice, Smythe said.

There was food for the pets, however.

Neighbors said the parents were loving, caring and did not cause trouble.

“I hugged my baby,” a neighbor named Danielle said of what she did after hearing about the attack.

“It could have been anybody’s baby. Everybody played over there.”

The family’s four other children, all aged 5-years-old or below, have been taken to a relative. They all

have some type of special needs, according to Smythe. He would like them be placed in foster care.

Three social service agencies — Delaware County Children & Youth Services, Northwestern Human Services

and Elwyn — have been monitoring the family, Smythe said. They are investigating the incident.

Smythe raised questions about how an incident like this could take place in a family that was being investigated.

“It’s not that they’re bad parents, it’s just that the children are not being taken care of,” he said.

Smythe has asked the Delaware County District Attorney to approve charges against the parents.

Last year the Dunk Contest was alright, even though they had a dumbazz format. I would

have like to see what else D-Lill, Paul George and John Wall had.

These new contestants are like WHO, WHO and WHO ???  I don’t get it….

Now I’m kinda glad I didn’t get tickets….

Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo, Minnesota’s Zach LaVine, Orlando’s Victor Oladipo

and Brooklyn’s Mason Plumlee will be the contestants in the 2015 Sprite Slam Dunk contest,

the NBA announced Tuesday night.

The dunk contest will be Feb. 14 at Barclays Center, part of NBA All-Star Weekend in New

York. The All-Star Game will be Feb. 15 at Madison Square Garden.

This year’s dunk contest will feature two rounds and no time limits. Each player will get two

dunks in the first round, with the two players with the highest combined scores advancing

to the final round. The two finalists also will get two dunks apiece in the head-to-head round.

There is a three-attempt maximum for each dunk. The event will feature five judges, who

will score each dunk on a scale of 6 to 10, for a low score of 30 and a high score of 50.

The 2014 dunk contest champion was the Washington Wizards’ John Wall.
