News: Irving averaged 20.8 points and 6.1 assists in 35.2 minutes in his third year with the Cavaliers. He played in a career-high 71 games but saw his field goal percentage (43 percent) and 3-point percentage (35.8 percent) fell off. Impact: While Irving's season may have seemed like a disappointment, his overall numbers were not wholly different from his second season. It remains to be seen whether he'll sign a contract extension with Cleveland this summer, before he becomes a restricted free agent after his fourth season. He remains one of the game's best fourth-quarter scorers who can get hot and lead his team to victory, but that doesn't happen often enough.(RotoWire, )

News: Irving scored 15 points (3-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT) in 31 minutes in the loss to the Celtics on Saturday. Impact: Since exploding for 44 points in the overtime loss against the Bobcats last Saturday, Irving has averaged just 11.7 points on 10-of-33 (30.3 percent) from the field. He may be looking toward the offseason, when he can put this rough year behind him.(RotoWire, )

News: Irving provided just eight points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with five rebounds, five assists, and three steals in 23 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Pistons. Impact: The Cavaliers forged a 32-point lead by halftime, so Irving was able to get plenty of rest in the second half. He was coming off a 44-point performance, but the third-year guard was able to contribute in other areas despite limited playing time. He should bounce back Friday at Milwaukee.(RotoWire, )

News: Irving and Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon spent the past few days in a media spat, exchanging barbs across TV, Twitter and newspaper. Gordon, who led the NFL with yards receiving last season, fired the first verbal volley last week when he went on ESPN and discussed Irving's problems this season with teammate Dion Waiters. Irving then didn't waste any time in shooting back. Impact: Irving said he has spoken to Gordon about the comments. "I just let him know that the whole situation kind of got blown out of proportion," Irving said. "There was no disrespect on my end to him or anything he does. I have the utmost respect for him."(STATS, 5:14pm)

News: Irving feels he's being unfairly portrayed in the media and is adamant that he's only focused on winning. Impact: One day after he went on Twitter to defend himself against a report that said he wants out of Cleveland, Irving met with reporters before Saturday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats. Irving said he's been frustrated by a "barrage" of negative reports "all season," saying it's "all nonsense to me."(STATS, 6:27pm)
