Kyrie Irving    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Kyrie Irving scored 26 points in Monday's Game 5 loss to the Warriors as the Cavaliers were eliminated from the playoffs, Irving got off to a great start tonight, but he cooled off down the stretch and looked like he was battling a couple injuries -- the trainers were working on his back and right quad and he looked a step slow in the second half. He shot 9-of-22 from the field with six assists, two rebounds, two steals and one triple in 42 minutes. Still just 25 years old, Irving has two more years left on his deal with a player option for the third.

Kyrie Irving scored 38 points during Wednesday's tough Game 3 loss in Cleveland, making 16-of-29 field goals and 6-of-6 free throws with six rebounds and three assists. Irving went 0-of-7 from downtown but he was incredible attacking the rim tonight, scoring on a variety of artistic layups in traffic. The lack of outside shooting was endemic for the Cavs, who went just 12-of-44 from deep (27.3 percent), compared to the Warriors' mark of 16-of-33 (48.5 percent). Cleveland will look to build on the positive aspects of tonight's performance during Friday's must-win Game 4.

Kyrie Irving said the rest of the NBA Finals is "definitely gonna be a track meet." In his Saturday press conference, Irving talked about getting stops and doing better on rebounding to help set them up for better defense. One big misconception around the league is Game 1 was played at a high pace, but it was just at a 102.5. That is almost exactly the same as the Warriors had during the regular season and just four possessions per game faster than the Cavs. The Cavs were also dead last in points per possession allowed in transition during the regular season while the Warriors led the NBA for frequency of that play type, so the Cavs really need to cut down on the 27 fast-break points they gave up in Game 1.

Kyrie Irving scored 24 points with three rebounds, two assists, one block, three 3-pointers and four turnovers in 35 minutes against the Warriors in a Game 1 loss. While Irving did have his fair share of highlights, Stephen Curry easily got the best of him in this game. Irving's big advantage against Boston was his domination at the rim, but the Warriors defense did a phenomenal job of limiting Kyrie from racking up the layups -- credit Klay Thompson for a lot of this. Plus, the Warriors were able to force 20 turnovers, including 10 in the second quarter.
