Kyrie Irving, after breaking a bone in his jaw against the Milwaukee Bucks two nights ago, came into last night’s match-up against the New York Knicks dawning his new face-mask. Calling himself the Dark Knight, he put on quite the show. Shooting 60% from the field and nailing five three pointers, he scored a new career-high 41 points.

However, with just a second to go and Anderson Varejao at the line the Cavs fell short. Andy, a career 76% free throw shooter, would split his free throws allowing New York to prevail with a one-point lead. The Knicks, flaunting the NBA’s best record have yet to lose a game at their home court, the Madison Square Garden.

While there has been a fair share of good and bad in Irving’s return, the Cavaliers are just 1-3 since his return from a broken finger which cost him eleven games. It’s safe to say that the self-proclaimed Batman has yet to find his Robin.
