People in sports: Kyrie Irving

No comments have been posted to this article.


Kyrie Irving: The Cleveland point guard’s up-and-down season trended upward again Monday when he was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week on the same day Nike unveiled a shoe in his honor.

Irving averaged 29 points, 6.3 assists and 2.3 steals and the Cavaliers went 2-1 last week. Their only loss was to the Miami Heat after rallying from 19 points behind to take a brief lead.

Irving has battled a low shooting percentage this season, but shot .508 last week, including .409 on three-pointers. He had the highest field-goal percentage among all players in the East who averaged at least 21 points for the week.

“He deserves it. He put up some big numbers for us,” Cavs coach Mike Brown said. “He was aggressive, especially at the right times, for us.”
