    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Scores 29 points in Saturday's win

    Irving supplied 29 points (11-21 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists, and two steals across 37 minutes in Saturday's 99-84 dusting of the Pelicans. Irving didn't light it up from long range, but Saturday's 3-for-9 effort from downtown still amounted to a positive outing after he had gone a collective 3-for-24 from distance in the preceding eight games. That shortcoming aside, Irving has mostly looked like his usual self since returning from a long-term knee injury in late December, and he's scored no fewer than 19 points in any of the Cavs' last six games.

    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Scores team-high 26 points in loss to Hornets

    Irving scored 26 points (10-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT) to go with five assists, one rebound, and a steal over 37 minutes in a 106-97 loss to the Hornets on Wednesday. Irving's offensive output helped the Cavs remain competitive, but unspectacular defense led to their demise in the Time Warner Cable Arena. While Irving continues to have no answers beyond the arc -- shooting 13.6 percent from downtown over his last seven games -- he's scored at least 20 points in his last four contests. Look for that trend to continue on Friday against the Celtics.

    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Scores game-high 25 points in Monday's win

    Irving scored a game-high 25 points (10-20 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while dishing out seven assists with three rebounds during 41 minutes in Monday's 111-106 overtime win against the Pacers. It was the third straight contest that Irving scored at least 20 points in, as the All-Star point guard has pretty much shaken off all the injury rust. The one concerning stat though is Irving's struggles from distance. He's hit just 2-of-18 from beyond the arc in the past six games.

    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Manages 21 points in Saturday victory

    Irving managed 21 points (9-17 FG, 3-4 FT), six assists, a rebound and two steals over 36 minutes in Saturday's 117-103 victory over the Spurs. The All-Star point guard has apparently taken coach Tyronn Lue's directive to attack the basket to heart, posting back-to-back 20-point-plus outings for only the second time since his Dec. 20 return. After only posting 50 percent or better shooting from the field in four of his previous 14 games, Irving has now accomplished the feat in his last two contests as well. If he can maintain his current level of aggressiveness over an extended stretch, a return to last season's averages of 21.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 5.7 assists is certainly within reach for the talented 23-year-old.

    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Scores 28 points Friday

    Irving recorded 28 points (11-19 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 32 minutes during the Cavaliers' 114-106 victory versus the Pistons on Friday. Coming off Wednesday's 4-of-11 performance against the Suns, Irving looked much better offensively on Friday. He failed to sink a three-pointer, but nevertheless had an efficient night scoring the ball thanks to the fact that he earned seven trips to the charity stripe. Irving has been up-and-down since returning to action over five weeks ago, making less than 40 percent of his field goals in seven of his 15 games. However, he will have some time to rest and re-charge soon with the All-Star break coming up, and his best days are surely yet to come.

    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Scores 17 points with nine boards in Monday's win

    Irving scored 17 points (7-18 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while pulling down nine rebounds with four assists over 28 minutes in Monday's 114-107 win against the T-Wolves. The nine rebounds was a season high for Irving, who played much better following a poor performance Saturday against the Bulls. Kyrie has been hot and cold from downtown since returning to the court in December, having gone seven straight games without hitting more than two 3-pointers. The Cavaliers have a busy week which ends with a big matchup against the Spurs, so expect new coach Tyronn Lue to try and keep Irving fresh.

    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Drops 21 on Clippers in victory Thursday

    Irving scored 21 points (8-18 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with four assists, two rebounds, and a steal over 29 minutes in a 115-102 victory over the Clippers on Thursday. While injuries may have curbed Irving's chances at an All-Star bid (reserves have yet to be voted on by coaches), the former Blue Devil played like an All-Star in Thursday's victory. After a pair of low-scoring performances against the Warriors and Nets, Irving rebounded to score at least 20 points for the fifth time in January. Having played just 15 games this season, Irving still has time to match his previous statistical thresholds.

    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Posts game-high 23 points in Friday victory

    Irving managed a game-high 23 points (9-17 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds, an assist and a block over 30 minutes in Friday's 91-77 victory over the Rockets. While his scoring has been a bit up-and-down since his return from a fractured kneecap suffered in last year's Finals, Friday was a tangible reminder of Irving's ability to impact a game in different ways. He enjoyed an above-average night from the field, and displayed superior ball handling on a number of drives towards the basket. He encouragingly remained aggressive from long range, and is now averaging 19.0 points, 4.3 assists and 3.5 rebounds over eight January contests.

    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Collects 16 points in Thursday loss

    Irving collected 16 points (6-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two rebounds and a steal over 32 minutes in Thursday's 99-95 loss to the Spurs. The 23-year-old had a rough night from the field, and has now shot 32.7 percent (17-for-52) over his last three games. Encouragingly, Irving has not been shy about putting the ball up despite the struggles, and has made 19 attempts from beyond the arc over that span, of which he's drained six. Considering his pedigree and the fact that the Cavs were up against a locked-in Spurs defense in the second half Thursday, Irving's rather modest night is not cause for concern. The five-year pro is a good bet to even out his performances in the near future and begin contributing at a level much closer to his career averages.

    Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving: Dishes season-high nine assists in season-high 39 minutes

    Irving posted 22 points (8-20 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 39 minutes during the Cavaliers' 110-107 overtime win against the Mavericks on Tuesday. Irving made only three of his 15 attempts from the field on Sunday versus the 76ers, but played well on Tuesday. Not only did he hand out nine helpers, Irving hit the dagger three-pointer to put the Cavaliers up by five with less than 20 seconds remaining in overtime. The Cavs are back in action on Thursday versus the Spurs' top-rated defense.
