Kyrie Irving spoke to reporters after Tuesday’s 118-107 loss to the Utah Jazz. Irving finished with 32 points and 11 assists in 32 minutes.

“I feel good,” Irving said. “Being out gave time to slow down, get healthy and put an emphasis on my body. Early in the season, I had three broken bones in my face & I got hit again in China. I think that’s what attributed to my shoulder impingement, trying to make up for lost time.”

We highlighted some of the key quotes from his postgame interview in which he discusses the loss, his shoulder, leadership and adjusting to a 3-guard rotation.

Watch here:

One of the better quotes was when he was asked about the tough upcoming schedule, which includes the Sixers twice, the Bucks and Lakers over the next four games. “I love it...” Irving said, “For me, as one of the leaders on the team, I look forward to that.”

How are Nets fans feeling about the return of Kyrie? Well, the Fan Pulse results have shown an abrupt turn for the better since last week.

Welcome back, Kyrie.
