Kyrie Irving 2017 NBA Finals Postgame

The Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals, 129-120, on Friday night, however the duo of LeBron James and Kyrie Irving did not go down without a fight.

Irving finished the game with 26 points, two rebounds, six assists, and two steals, while his running mate in James finished the night with a whopping 41 points, 13 rebounds, eight assists, and two steals.

James became the first player in NBA history to average a triple-double in the NBA Finals, as he ended the Finals averaging 33.6 points, 12.0 rebounds, and 10.0 assists per game, and Irving paid tribute to the Cavs leader after Game 5.

Irving and the Cavs will look forward to a much-needed couple weeks off before getting right back to it in preparation for next season.
