Cleveland Cavaliers Without Kyrie

The Cavaliers (Cavs) didn’t start the season so hot. They started 5-7. The home opener of the seasons was at home against the Celtics, who now have Kyrie Irving. Kyrie left the Cavs after last year’s season when he requested a trade.

When Kyrie came to play in Quicken Loans Arena (The Q) he had a good game with 22 points, 10 assist and 4 rebounds. Kyrie played for the Cavs at The Q for 6 years, after they drafted him as the number one pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.

In 2014 when Kyrie had been playing with the Cavs for some time now. LeBron James announced that he was coming back to his home town to play for the Cavs again. In the last seasons Kyrie and LeBron played together, LeBron lead the team averaging 26.4 points per game and Kyrie was in second with 25.2 points per game.

This season LeBron is now averaging 28.2 points per game followed by Kevin Love with 18.7 points per game.  The Cavs have won the last 9 games they have played, LeBron and Kevin have been the leaders in scoring points in all these last 9 wins.

The Cavs are still good with out Kyrie with an over all record of 14-7, but they are in 3rd place in the Eastern Conference. The Cavs are behind the Celtics who Kyrie now plays for with a record of 18-4 and the Pistons who have a record of 14-6 in second place.
