Irving had 27 points (10-30 FG, 2-12 3PT, 5-5 FT), five assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 37 minutes during Tuesday's 119-114 loss at the Jazz.
Irving has attempted 20 or more field goals in four of his last five outings, but he is making only 43.4 percent of them while shooting 23.6 percent from three-point range. Irving will score no matter what due to his high usage rate, but the efficiency has been lacking in recent games and that puts a ceiling on his already-high upside. Brooklyn will continue their road trip Thursday at Denver.
Irving contributed 33 points (12-27 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six assists, three rebounds, a steal and a block across 38 minutes Friday against Portland.
Irving provided yet another stunning offensive display, topping 30 points for the fourth time this year. The veteran guard is exceeding the high expectations fantasy owners had of him entering the year and is averaging a stunning 31.9 points, 7.5 assists, 5.8 rebounds, 3.4 threes and 1.3 steals in 34.4 minutes through eight games.
Irving delivered 39 points (13-21 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 11-11 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, and three steals in 35 minutes during Monday's 135-125 win over the Pelicans.
Irving was phenomenal on both ends, falling one dime shy of a double-double while amassing three swipes. Moreover, Irving lived at the free throw line in this one and continues to thrive as the clear top option in an offensive system that revolves entirely around his ability to make plays for himself and others.
Irving recorded 20 points (8-21 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, and 10 assists in 33 minutes during Saturday's 113-109 loss to the Pistons.
Irving posted his third career triple-double while matching his career high in rebounding. He couldn't find the touch from beyond the arc and finished with more field goal attempts than points. Nevertheless, he managed no shortage of counting stats and continues to fill the stat sheet on a nightly basis through six tilts.
Irving registered 28 points (11-20 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, six assists, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 118-108 loss to the Pacers.
Irving had another strong scoring performance and contributed across every statistical category. Despite the team's early struggles, Irving is off to an incredible start individually, managing career highs in most departments. Given the team's lack of star power with Kevin Durant (Achilles) out for the season, Irving can likely be expected to remain extremely aggressive throughout 2019-20.
Irving delivered 37 points (11-27 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 10-11 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, two steals and one block in 34 minutes Sunday in the Nets' 134-133 overtime loss to the Grizzlies.
Irving's efficiency from the field left much to be desired, but on the back of two good shooting games to begin the season, he still maintains a 45.6 percent mark from the field to complement an elite 93.1 percent mark from the charity stripe. So long as health prevails, Irving looks like he could be poised for a career-best fantasy season thanks in large part to his sky-high usage rate. His current mark of 37.5 percent is nearly eight points better than the previous career high he established in 2017-18 with the Celtics.
Irivng had 26 points (8-19 FG, 2-8 3PT, 8-8 FT) and five assists in Friday's win over the Knicks.
While Irving wasn't able to match Wednesday's heroic effort, he still paced the Nets in scoring and added three steals on the defensive end.
Irving scored 50 points (17-33 FG, 7-14 3Pt, 9-10 FT) while adding eight rebounds, seven assists and a block in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 127-126 overtime loss to the Timberwolves.
The 27-year-old was absolutely dominant in his Nets debut, although he did miss a potential game-winning shot at the buzzer in OT. Irving's 50-point eruption set a new NBA record for scoring by a player making his debut for a new team, breaking Kiki Vandeweghe's record from 1984, and he could find himself as basically a one-man show in Brooklyn this year with Kevin Durant (Achilles) potentially out for the entire season.

Coach Kenny Atkinson also noted that Irving may be on a minutes limit, so it sounds like the Nets may just deploy Irving for the first half, as is often the case with high-profile players during the preseason. Irving and his teammates will look to build some chemistry ahead of Wednesday's season opener against the Timberwolves.

Irving is dealing with a facial contusion after getting elbowed during Thursday's preseason game against the Lakers.

Irving was already wearing a mask after suffering a facial fracture earlier in camp, so it's likely the hit to the face -- which came in the form of a Rajon Rondo elbow -- aggravated that injury. For now, it's unclear if the Nets expect Irving to miss any additional time, but the team now has more reason than ever to consider limiting his exposure during the exhibition season. Brooklyn is scheduled to take on the Lakers again on Saturday in China.

While Irving ended up in the hospital, the incident doesn't appear to be anything overly concerning, as it was downplayed by GM Sean Marks. Irving could be sidelined for a few days, but if that's the case, it would likely be on a precautionary basis.
Irving officially signed a four-year, $136.49 million contract with the Nets on Saturday.

The star point guard's contract includes an estimated $36.5 million player option for 2022-23, when he could decline in order to enter free agency again ahead of his age-30 season.
