CHICAGO, Feb. 26 (UPI) — Dion Waiters pumped in 25 points Tuesday and the Cleveland Cavaliers shook off the absence of Kyrie Irving to hang a 101-98 loss on Chicago.

Shaun Livingston (15 points), Wayne Ellington (13) and Alonzo Gee (11) all reached double figures in the win.
Carlos Boozer scored 27 points and Luol Deng added 26 for the Bulls, who fell for the second straight game.
