Kyrie Irving scored 30 points on 10-of-23 shooting (1-of-5 3PTs, 9-of-9 FTs) with two rebounds, six assists, one steal and one block in Monday's Game 1 loss to the Bulls.
Irving's offense was fine but defensively both he and his teammates struggled as they let the Bulls hit 50 percent of their field goals and 55.6 percent from deep. The Cavs will need to improve in that area to win any games in which the Bulls haven't pulled one of their patented disappearing acts. May 4 - 10:44 PM

Kyrie Irving put up a double-double as the Cavs swept the Celtics on Sunday, scoring 24 points (8-of-19 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs), with 11 rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block through 43 minutes of action.

Kyrie was fantastic through his first-career playoff series, averaging 23.3 points, 4.3 assists, 3.0 three-pointers, 1.0 steal and 1.0 block per game. He and LeBron James scored or assisted on 27 of the Cavs 29 fourth-quarter field goals through their first-round series against the Celtics, and he should continue to put up quality numbers throughout the playoffs. Chicago is likely going to be Cleveland's second-round opponent, so get ready for some electrifying basketball as Kyrie goes toe-to-toe against a surging Derrick Rose.

Kyrie Irving said after Thursday's Game 3 win over the Celtics that he's not going to react to Boston's physical play.

"My thought process and my killer mindset is that I'm just going to kill you even more now," Irving said regarding Jonas Jerebko's hard foul on him during Game 3. "If I lose my composure, it's not a good look. It's not something that's in my DNA. Don't get me wrong, I ain't no soft dude, but in the game of basketball, [expletive] happens. So you just continue to play." Boston played very physically during Game 3, and it seemed like they tried to get some of their lesser role players to get a reaction from the Cavs superstars, but Irving wasn't biting. Cleveland will look to close out their first-round series with the Celtics during Game 4 in Boston on Sunday.

Kyrie Irving slowed down in Game 3 against the Celtics, making 3-of-11 from the field for 13 points with one rebound, six assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

It's been a long time since we've seen Kyrie struggle when he's given big minutes. In his last five games with at least 20 minutes played, he scored at least 23 in all of them and was fairly efficient in each game, too. Expect him to get hot again and come close to scoring 28.0 points per game, which he averaged in Game 1 and 2.

Kyrie Irving was fabulous in his playoff debut on Sunday, scoring a game-high 30 points on 11-of-21 shooting (3-of-5 from the line), with five 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and one turnover through 41 minutes of action.

Irving looked confident during his first-career playoff game, and Boston really didn't have any answers for him. He also become just the second player in Cavs' franchise history to score 30 points in his playoff debut, with the other guy to accomplish the same feat going by the name of LeBron James. This should be a relatively short series.
Apr 19 - 5:45 PM

LeBron James showered praise on teammate Kyrie Irving and said that the sky was the limit for him.

"I think the sky is the limit for that kid and his talent, his work ethic, the fact that he loves to continue to learn about how to play the game, I think the sky is the limit for him and like you said, the kid is 23-years old, man," James said. "And to do the thing's that he's doing in our league right now, it's been awesome to be a part of it with him." Irving will be playing in his first playoff game vs. the Celtics on Sunday, and it will be encouraging for him to know that he will be going to battle with James by his side.
Apr 19 - 10:54 AM

Kyrie Irving played 18 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday during a 113-108 win, adding two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

Kyrie is in the playoffs and he'll be a favorite among most people to be a point guard in the NBA Finals. Irving's season was truly awesome and his ability to connect on catch-and-shoot shots explains a lot. He'll be a first-round target in drafts next season. The Cavs face the Celtics in Cleveland for Game 1 on Sunday.
Apr 16 - 12:24 AM

Kyrie Irving (hip) will play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday, though he will be on a minute-limit.

The rest of Cleveland's starters will also be limited, and LeBron James is resting as a precaution, so consider all your options before locking too many Cavs into active fantasy lineups.
Apr 15 - 6:21 PM

Kyrie Irving (hip) will not return to Monday's game against the Pistons.

He is resting as a precaution, so he should be ready to go for the playoffs. For now, we're not expecting him to play on Wednesday. Irving finished with 12 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two 3-pointers. Matthew Dellavedova started the second half.
Apr 13 - 8:27 PM

Kyrie Irving (hip) will be rested against the Celtics on Sunday, but he is expected to play against the Pistons on Monday.

Irving was held out of Friday's game vs. the Celtics because of soreness in his right hip, so his owners probably saw this coming. Matthew Dellavedova and Iman Shumpert (quad) will be very busy tonight, and are both worth a look in daily leagues.
Apr 12 - 1:33 PM

Kyrie Irving is dealing with a sore right hip injury and will not play on Friday night against the Celtics.

He felt the soreness at shootaround and that continued in warmups. Irving looked sharp on Wednesday and he probably would be suiting up had this been a playoff game. Still, he is probably much more likely to be rested in an upcoming game since he's at less than 100 percent Matthew Dellavedova will start, but is not a fantasy option. J.R. Smith and Kevin Love also benefit.
Apr 10 - 7:09 PM

Kyrie Irving hit 7-of-13 shots, four 3-pointers and 9-of-11 free throws for 27 points, four rebounds, nine assists and three steals in Wednesday's win over the Bucks.

Irving also had six turnovers in 41 minutes, and now that the Cavs have wrapped up a division title and the No. 2 seed in the East, all the big names are susceptible to a game or two off over the last four of the season. Watch for news if you own Irving, as he could get some rest starting with Friday's game against the Celtics.
Apr 8 - 11:31 PM

Kyrie Irving scored a game-high 27 points vs. Chicago on Sunday, making 8-of-19 field goals and 7-of-8 free throws with four 3-pointers.

Irving turned a busted set into the play of the game -- he thought there were 22.0 seconds on the shot-clock but there were only 2.0 seconds, forcing a shot from well beyond mid-court which he swished with apparent ease. He added five boards, four assists, three steals and one block to round out yet another elite performance.
Apr 5 - 7:24 PM

Kyrie Irving took care of business against the Heat on Thursday, scoring 23 points with one rebound, five assists, four steals and three 3-pointers.

His efficiency and consistency have really been the big difference. Interestingly, Irving shot between 46.1 percent and 47.7 percent in every full month this season. He's also scored at least 20 points per game in every month. Some of this is due to LeBron James, but Irving hitting open shots has been a huge reason for his success.
Apr 2 - 11:15 PM

Kyrie Irving (illness) will play Thursday vs. the Heat.

Go ahead and get him active for a favorable matchup against the Heat. Matthew Dellavedova isn't worth owning in any league with Irving active.
