CLEVELAND (AP) Kyrie Irving recorded his first career triple-double with 21 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds to lead the Cleveland Cavaliers to a 99-79 win over the Utah Jazz on Friday night.

The All-Star Game MVP was two rebounds shy of the mark going into the fourth quarter, but grabbed his ninth rebound early in the period and pulled down his 10th with 4:12 to go.

A young fan wearing a stocking cap raced on the floor and patted Irving on the shoulder midway through the fourth quarter, but was quickly subdued by several policemen and security guards. The fan was wrestled to the floor and led away in handcuffs.

Luol Deng scored 16 points as the Cavaliers placed five players in double figures.

Gordon Hayward scored 18 points for Utah, which began a six-game road trip.
