Kyrie Irving has been the story of the NBA since he went off for 57 points and was responsible for the Cavaliers beating the Spurs Thursday night in a nationally televised game.
Irving was just on — the Spurs contested 30 of Irving’s 32 shots, but he was hitting them anyway. That includes two threes that sent the game into overtime when it seemed the Spurs had it locked up (and they would have if Kawhi Leonard had hit a free throw).
Interesting to see Irving credit Kobe Bryant for keeping the focus on form under pressure. He has learned that lesson well.
