CLEVELAND, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Kyrie Irving returned from an injury to score 28 points and distribute 11 assists Tuesday in Cleveland's 100-94 win over the reeling Los Angeles Lakers.

Irving, out since Nov. 18 with a fractured left index finger, showed few signs of rust as the Cavaliers broke a five-game losing streak.

C.J. Miles also netted 28 points thanks in part to five 3-pointers while Anderson Varejao helped out with 20 points, nine boards and five assists for the victors.

The free-falling Lakers meanwhile fell for the eighth time in 11 games despite a 42-point performance from Kobe Bryant, who connected on 16-of-28 shots from the field.

Dwight Howard contributed 19 points and 20 rebounds in the loss.
