Lebron James and the Cavaliers are looking to hopefully follow in the same footsteps as the Miami Heat winning a championship in the second season with James. The Cavs in their time together as a collective have yet to be fully healthy.
Anderson Varejao, Iman Shumpert, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, and Mo Williams have all had their share sitting out multiple games as they watch their teammates compete. Even without a few players they still have a legitimate shot of running through the Eastern Conference and allowing James to play in his sixth straight NBA Finals.
Although Love has showed major improvement in the offense with the Cavs since last season, Irving made his debut a few Sunday’s ago when they matched up against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Irving’s first few games were a little rough as he tried to work his way back into full game time action. David Blatt limited his minutes, which is very necessary for him to be able to slowly work his way back into the starting role.
Irving struggled on Christmas day in the rematch of last year’s NBA Finals against Golden State. He shot poorly shooting a measly 4 of 15 from the field. He made 0 of the 6 three pointers he attempted.
Since Christmas day Irving has showed major improvement! It is safe to say he is back and enjoying the game that he loves. In their contest against the Suns on December 28, 2015, he looked like the old Kyrie that every fan is used to. He was electrifying. He took it upon himself to tell Blatt to let him play, and when he hit the 3-pointer with 21 seconds left.
“I told you I got this,” he mouthed in excitement after hitting the shot.
On January 4, the Cavs destroyed the Toronto Raptors 122-100. Mr. Irving was the engine behind this victory. He went for 25 points, 8 assists, and 6 rebounds against Kyle Lowry, arguably a top five PG in this league today.
As a fan you want to see this team stay healthy and possibly see a healthy rematch of the NBA Finals last season.
The Cavs are on a four game winning streak, and Kyrie is coming into full effect!
