Description: Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving shot 66 percent from the field, including going 4-for-7 from the 3-point line on Saturday.
Insight: Cleveland hit its first 11 shots from beyond the arc. Irving scored 20 points and finished with five assists, three rebounds and three steals with no turnovers.
 
11/10/2014 9:28:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving played extremely well in Monday's win over the Pelicans.
Insight: He was 11-of-21 from the floor and 6-of-7 from the line for 32 points. Irving also chipped in nine assists, five rebounds, and one turnover. This was all done in 41 minutes of action.
 
10/30/2014 10:44:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving led the team in scoring during opening night.
Insight: He had 22 points, six assists, five rebounds, two steals, but did have four turnovers. Owners will deal with the turnovers, if Irving continues to produce stat lines like this one.
 
10/22/2014 6:13:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving takes a slight hit in fantasy value with superstars LeBron James and Kevin Love joining him in Cleveland.
Insight: Irving will not average over 17 field goal attempts per game, so his scoring might go down. However, his field goal percentage and assist numbers should increase. He should also remain fresher down the stretch since he no longer has to carry the load every night. Time will tell if less is more for Irving, but for now, his value takes a small hit.
 
8/21/2014 12:05:00 PM
Description: Kyrie Irving made all five of his field goal attempts as he looked fantastic against the Dominican Republic on Wednesday. Irving finished with 12 points, five assists and two 3-pointers.
Insight: Could this be a preview of what is to come in Cleveland this season? Irving did not take a single bad shot on Wednesday. He has not been the most efficient player in the past, but that could change with the help he will receive this season. Irving's usage rate is definitely going to take a hit, but sometimes in fantasy, less is more.
 
7/11/2014 8:03:00 PM
Description: Kyrie Irving's five-year, $90 million contract extension with the Cavaliers will include an early termination option for the 2019-20 season, according to Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Cleveland announced the extension Thursday before signing LeBron James Friday. James should help Irving become a more efficient player and draw some of the defensive pressure away from the point guard.
 
4/5/2014 10:20:00 PM
Description: Cleveland point guard Kyrie Irving made 16-of-31 from the field and scored a career-high 44 points Saturday against Charlotte.
Insight: Irving had four 40-point efforts in his career going into Saturday's game but never scored more than 41 points. Saturday's performance is a sign Irving is close to 100 percent after missing eight games with a biceps strain in March.

Insight: Irving missed the last eight games with a strained biceps.

Insight: He missed all five of his shot attempts and had two points in 10 minutes of action. The Cavs' next game is Tuesday against the Heat, and if Irving can't play we would probably see Dion Waiters and Matthew Dellavedova absorb his minutes.

Description: Cavs point guard Kyrie Irving followed up his triple-double Friday with another strong outing Saturday at Memphis.
Insight: This one didn't have all the bells and whistles (only one rebound and three assists) but 28 points is still 28 points. Love him or hate him, you have to admit Irving (21.5 ppg) is one of the most explosive scorers in professional hoops. We'll see what he can put together Tuesday against the Spurs.
