Analysis: Irving is averaging 29.7 points on 62.0 percent shooting in his last three games. He's also shooting a career-best 42.5 percent from 3-point range on the season.
Nov. 15 9:03 PM PT10:03 PM MT11:03 PM CT12:03 AM ET5:03 GMT13:03 10:03 PM MST12:03 AM EST9:03 UAE06:030:03 ET11:03 PM CT3:03 - Irving had 27 points and five assists Friday.
Analysis: Irving is not passing muster with his lack of passing - his assist totals are harming fantasy owners. He faces Jeff Teague and the Hawks on Saturday in a key Eastern Conference matchup.
Nov. 8 9:12 PM PT10:12 PM MT11:12 PM CT12:12 AM ET5:12 GMT13:12 10:12 PM MST12:12 AM EST9:12 UAE06:120:12 ET11:12 PM CT3:12 - Irving had 12 points and six assists Friday.
Analysis: Maybe some stern words from two-time NBA champion LeBron James caused Irving to be less selfish after his 34-point, zero-assist performance in his previous outing. In truth, fantasy owners would prefer that version of Irving rather than the one that bows to the 'King' of the NBA.

Analysis: Irving committed four turnovers to compound his inefficient performance. He also had just three assists, but more should come as he learns to mesh with LeBron James and Kevin Love.

Irving had his ankle stepped on by teammate Anderson Varejao in practice early last week and didn't play in Brazil when Cleveland faced the Miami Heat.
Analysis: Cavs coach David Blatt says Irving will play in Friday's exhibition against Dallas. Blatt says Irving "is raring to go, and that's good." Blatt isn't worried about Irving's conditioning because he played this summer with USA basketball.

Irving is now under contract with Cleveland through the 2019-20 season. Irving averaged 20.8 points, 6.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 71 games last season, his third with Cleveland. The former No. 1 overall pick was also voted MVP of the NBA's All-Star game.
