The Cleveland Cavaliers have Kyrie Irving back, and just in time as the Miami Heat come to town.

Kyrie Irving is back for the Cleveland Cavaliers and the fans are very, very grateful for that fact as a top tier team come to town tonight, the Miami Heat. LeBron James might have been the talk of the town in Cleveland for all those years, but Irving has shown to be all that he may just be the man to replace him. After coming back from a concussion he dished 22 points against the Pacers, and has played like a serious rookie of the year candidate. Unfortunately for Cleveland, they have almost nothing behind Irving and will probably get plenty of trouble from Miami.

Cleveland have lost both games so far this season to the Heat, both of which were in Miami. Cleveland are only 6-7 this season at home, so a definite advantage isn't really going to the Cavs in this one, especially with Miami healthy and on a roll -- they are 4-1 so far in their current road trip.

Even more interestingly, this game comes right after a strange bout of rumors that LeBron is willing to come back to Cleveland, but that's a story for another day.

The game will be at Quicken Loans Arena at 7:30 PM ET.
