Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers are hosting the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. The Cavs are coming off of a win over the Charlotte Bobcats in which Irving had 25 points and seven assists.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have a chance to start their second winning streak of the season when they host the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night. The game will be televised on Fox Sports Ohio when it tips off at 7 p.m. for all of those interested in seeing what Kyrie Irving can do against fellow rookie Charles Jenkins.

Irving, the first-year pro and top draft pick last June, scored 25 points and dished seven assists in Monday's victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. It wasn't quite his best game of the season, but the point guard certainly impressed his fans over at Fear The Sword.

What more do I need to say? Kyrie Irving was once again marvelous. I talked about it earlier, and honestly, there isn't a whole lot more to be said. He rarely makes a bad decision, but when he does, he comes back with the exact same controlled aggressiveness on the next possession. His body control is phenomenal and he makes impossibly difficult layups look routine. He took a pull-up three in transition, a shot that I normally hate....and nailed it. He's so confident in his ability, and rightfully so, he's a stud. I expected him to be good, and eventually great. So far, he's been great and eventually....who knows?

The Warriors are expected to be without the services of Stephen Curry as he recovers from an ankle injury, though it wouldn't be surprising to see Irving match-up with Monta Ellis throughout Tuesday night's game as the two are both their team's primary scoring options.
