Video: Top 5 Plays from Kyrie Irving’s Career Night
- Updated: March 14, 2015
In what was likely the best NBA game so far this season, Kyrie Irving stole the show with a performance of epic proportions. The first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft out of Duke University was a man on a mission, scoring a NBA season-high 57 points on the night in the Cleveland Cavaliers‘ thrilling 128-125 overtime victory over the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center.
His eye-popping display in San Antonio had it all: amazingly efficient shooting from the field (a ridiculous 20 of 32 from the floor), masterful three-point shooting (seven of seven from behind the arc), great defense (four steals), perfection from the free throw line (10 of 10 from the charity stripe) and top-tier ball-handling skills. Here’s a countdown of Irving’s top five plays from his legendary night.
