He hasn't shot the ball well for a while.

Just a cold stretch it seems, he'll be fine.

It's nice to see others stepping up for the time being though.

Why does he have to be injured? Why can't he just be in a mini-slump? Happens every year to every great player.

Pretty much it.
The guy is a sick shooter.

Kyrie is seing a lot of double and triple teams, especially in the paint, and there's no Lbj or Gordon Hayward to draw the attention away from him.
Anyone who plays basketball knows that it is very frustrating not being able to score, especially if your main role is scoring so you start forcing shots.

Could be.
But his open 3s are hitting the front rim.

Everyone has pretty much answered your question and hwangjjni has also added stats to back up your 'claim.'

To answer your statement, "Maybe, maybe not." Did you know hes also averaging 7.8 RPG during his mini-slump? Every great players go through a slump, but even better players make up on other ends of the box score to do so.

May just be a little tired... He is definitely pouring a lot more into the Defensive side than he ever has before.. Gotta think that that will take it's toll, especially in his first year with us..

With that said IF Kyrie's slumping has anything to do with this winning streak then keep slumping...

It's interesting watching him in this "mini-slump" because he never seems to be "trying" to shoot his way out of it... He continues getting other guys into good rhythms...   This is helping us win because other guys carry us through Quarters (not games, just Quarters) 

He is still producing at an elite level for us...  definitely the catalyst to our success.

Nothing. The season is long and there are hot streaks and cold streaks. 4 games where he hasn't shot all that well (but the team has won anyways) concerns me zero.
