Irving erupted for a season-high 49 points (15-28 FG, 8-14 3Pt, 11-11 FT) while adding four assists, two rebounds, two steals and a blocked shots across 42 minutes in Monday's 124-122 loss against the Pelicans.
Irving has posted 10 or more buckets in each of his past three games, and six of his past nine outings. He is averaging 34.7 points, 5.7 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 2.0 steals over his past three starts, putting plenty of smiles on the faces of fantasy owners lately.
Irving tied LeBron James with a team-high 29 points in the loss. His nine assists were a team high and the most he's handed out since he totaled 12 assists on Dec. 29 against the Celtics. After Irving had shot below 50 percent in four straight contests, he has rebounded by shooting at least 50 percent in two straight games. He will look to maintain the hot shooting against the Pelicans on Monday.
Irving put up 26 points (10-22 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal across 35 minutes in a 120-108 win over the Kings on Friday.
After a pair of back-to-back poor shooting outings that limited his scoring outputs, Irving busted out of the slump to some degree as the Cavs snapped a two-game losing streak. With LeBron James handling more of the facilitating duties, Irving was able to lead the team in scoring, and while he wasn't all that accurate from three-point range, the point guard was quite effective closer to the rim. This outing should provide a needed confidence boost for Irving heading into a rematch Monday with the Warriors, who he memorably carved up for 25 points, 10 assists, seven steals and six rebounds in the Cavs' Christmas Day win.
Irving scored 27 points (10-20 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with seven assists, two rebounds and one steal across 40 minutes in Sunday's 120-116 win over the Suns.
Irving aggressively looked for his shot in this contest and was especially effective from three-point range, as his four makes from downtown were his most in over a month. He missed three games with a hamstring issue but has averaged 29.5 points, 5.5 assists, 3.5 treys and 1.5 steals in two games since returning, quelling any concerns about his health moving forward.
Irving scored 32 points (10-26 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 9-9 FT), to go along with four assists, three rebounds and two steals in 36 minutes during Friday's 116-108 win over the Nets.
After sitting out three games with a hamstring injury, it wasn't unreasonable to expect Irving to come out with just a smidge less of his signature attacking mentality. Then, as he began slashing into the lane and flinging up pull-up jumpers, it became apparent that Irving would skip any and all "feeling-out processes." Irving put up 26 field goal attempts, the second most he's attempted all season, and came up huge in the fourth quarter when the Nets staged a bug run.
