Kyrie Irving scored 24 points with two rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday.
The Cavs exploded in the first half with 75 points to set a playoff franchise record. Irving just continues to cook up Boston, especially in the second half. He scored 11 points in the first five minutes of the second half today after he dropped 21 points in the third quarter during Game 4. Irving didn't have the best series against the Raptors, but he'll head into the Golden State series with a ton of momentum. The Warriors probably don't want Kyrie taking on shots from the right wing.

Kyrie Irving is a go for Game 5 vs. the Celtics on Thursday.

Irving was able to play through a tweaked ankle on his way to a 42-point performance in Game 4, and it looks like he recovered well because he had no noticeable limp at the morning shootaround. Fantasy owners can deploy him with confidence.
May 25 - 11:13 AM

Kyrie Irving went off for a playoff career-high 42 points in Tuesday's 112-99 Game 4 win, giving his team a 3-1 series lead.

With LeBron James in foul trouble for most of the night, Irving helped the Cavaliers erase a 16-point deficit and dropped 21 of his 42 points in the third quarter. The entire arena went silent when Irving rolled his left ankle near the end of the third quarter, but he was able to stay in and said after the game that he felt "great." Maybe he sits out of Wednesday's practice to be safe, but expect him to be ready for Game 5 on Thursday in Boston as the Cavs look to close out this series. You can check out the incident in the link below.
May 23 - 11:08 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 23 points in 30 minutes against the Celtics on Friday, adding one rebound, three assists, one block, one steal and three 3-pointers.

While LeBron James is stealing the show, Kyrie is starting to come around after an underwhelming start to this postseason. He beat up on the Celtics all season with 25.5 points per game on 62.8 true shooting percentage, so a big game today is no surprise. After the game on TNT, Irving also said the Cavs are playing "pissed off" ad they're being more aggressive. With Isaiah Thomas (hip) now banged up, it's possible Irving gets more Marcus Smart in Game 3. It probably won't matter.
May 19 - 10:56 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting during the Cavs' Game 1 victory in Boston on Wednesday.

Irving handed out six assists with two rebounds, two steals and one block in 34 minutes. He boasts a gaudy usage rate during the postseason but the Cavs had great success with LeBron James as their de facto point guard tonight, so Irving was relegated to second-string duties. We anticipate a bigger game, usage-wise, on Friday.
May 17 - 11:42 PM

Kyrie Irving did a little bit of everything during Cleveland's Game 4 win over Toronto, registering 27 points, five boards, nine assists, four steals, two 3-pointers and one block in 40 minutes.

Irving was in attack mode from start to finish, and he really took things over during the fourth quarter when he scored 11 of his 27 points while posting an insane usage rate of 50.0. The Cavs have been cruising through the postseason thus far, and with them completing yet another series sweep, they'll have plenty of time to rest up for their Eastern Conference Finals matchup against the winners of the Washington-Boston series.
May 7 - 6:52 PM

Kyrie Irving made 7-of-21 from the field for 16 points against the Raptors in the Game 3 win on Friday, adding five rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

With LeBron James going off seemingly every night these days, Irving has taken a backseat offensively. In his last five games, Irving averaged just 20.6 points, 2.2 boards, 5.8 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 treys on 34.7 percent from the field. He's still getting a decent amount of shots, so Irving could get hot in a hurry.
May 5 - 9:59 PM

Kyrie Irving handed out a playoff career-high 11 assists during the Cavs' 125-103 home win on Wednesday, adding 22 points (6-of-19 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs), three 3-pointers and two steals in 30 minutes.

Irving dished out 10 assists in Game 1 and is looking to get his teammates involved early and often -- he even had a Rondo-esque play in the second half, sacrificing an open layup to set up LeBron James in transition. The Cavs dominated tonight despite Kyrie's poor shooting, which is an ominous sight for the Raptors.
May 3 - 10:00 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 24 points on 7-of-16 shooting in Game 1 vs. the Raptors on Monday.

He was a ridiculous +32 in his 35 minutes, adding 10 assists, two rebounds, two steals and three 3-pointers. Irving passed Craig Ehlo for the 3rd most assists (164) in Cleveland's postseason history, and he had one of the best dimes of the playoffs with a lob off the glass to LeBron James in the first quarter which lifted the roof off the arena (link below). Kevin Love added 18 points, nine rebounds and three triples for the Cavaliers, while Tristan Thompson finished with 11 points, 14 rebounds and two steals.
May 1 - 10:09 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 28 points on 10-of-25 shooting during Sunday's Game 4 win over the Pacers, to go with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, one steal, three blocks and one turnover in 37 minutes.

Irving was able to find his own shot, but he didn't do a great job of getting his teammates involved, as evidenced by his zero assists. Still, he carried the Cavs offensively through the third quarter of action when he scored 16 of his 28 points while posting a usage rate of 37.1, so he still had a major impact in the game despite bringing doughnuts to the assist column.
Apr 23 - 4:20 PM

Kyrie Irving scored 13 points in 28 minutes against the Pacers during a Game 3 win on Thursday, adding two rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer.

After a monster 37-point gem in Game 2, Irving did not play in the final 16 minutes of this comeback win. Maybe it was because Irving was just 4-of-17 from the field, but coach Ty Lue just stuck with the hot hand and it's not like the Cavs needed Kyrie's offense when LeBron James is going off. This almost certainly won't be a trend, so expect Kyrie to make a big impact in Game 4 on Sunday.
Apr 20 - 10:35 PM

Kyrie Irving had himself a day vs. the Pacers in Game 2 on Monday, dropping 37 points on 14-of-24 shooting to give his team a 2-0 series lead.

For the first time ever, Irving, Kevin Love and LeBron James all scored 25+ points in a playoff game. Irving hit 5-of-5 from the line with four 3-pointers, two rebounds, two assists and one steal, and he was dribbling circles around Jeff Teague for most of the night. Irving passed Mark Price for the 2nd-most playoff points in Cavaliers history, and he will try to keep this momentum going as the series shifts to Indiana for Game 3 on Thursday.
Apr 17 - 10:49 PM

Kyrie Irving made 11-of-27 from the field for 23 points with three rebounds, six assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

When you think of Kyrie, you usually aren't thinking about his defense. Well, that's what may have saved the day with Irving picking up two key defensive plays in the final 2:14 with a block on a Jeff Teague floater and a steal on Myles Turner. The minutes and usage are great signs for Irving to have a huge postseason, but this isn't really a surprise.
Apr 15 - 6:27 PM

Kyrie Irving (rest), LeBron James (rest) and Kevin Love (rest) will not suit up for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Raptors.

It looks like the Cavs will concede the No. 1 seed to Boston with this move, and it'll likely be Deron Williams, Richard Jefferson and Channing Frye moving into the starting lineup with Cleveland's Big 3 on the sidelines. Williams is coming off a big game in which he put up 35 points, five triples, seven boards, nine dimes, one steal, one block (and an unfortunate 10 turnovers), so he could be someone to throw out there in daily leagues.

Kyrie Irving is questionable to play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

This is pretty much a non-update after the report of him being a possibility to play today. Regardless, DFS players cannot go after Kyrie because his minutes will likely be capped big time. If he doesn't play Deron Williams should get big minutes in the starting lineup following his 46-minute effort in OT on Monday.
