Irving had missed the Nets’ previous seven games as he took a “pause” from basketball to deal with some family issues.

The Cavs and Nets were just a part of the four-team blockbuster deal that sent James Harden to Brooklyn.
Cleveland received center Jarrett Allen in the deal.
Irving is averaging 27.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, 6.1 assists per game this season.
He will get his first taste of playing with both Harden and Kevin Durant against the Cavs.
Cleveland is 6-7 this season and will take on Brooklyn tonight and on Friday.
The Cavs and Nets tip off at 7 p.m. EST.
