Kyrie Irving hasn’t gotten much talk compared to his teammates LeBron James and Kevin Love when it comes to the Cavaliers. Well, this shot him right to the front page.
Irving went for 55 points (an NBA season high!) against the Portland Trail Blazers. On the way there, he made a clutch three to break a 94-tie. He helped extend the Cavs’ winning streak to 8 games. And LeBron James was enjoying it all on the sidelines as he didn’t play with a wrist injury.
Watch Kyrie score 55 in this highlight video:
Irving also made 11 three-pointers, one shy of tying Kobe Bryant and Donyell Marshall’s record for most three-pointers in a game. Kyrie was truly setting it all on fire on Wednesday night.
