Russell Westbrook had another triple-double (20/12/10 while missing 19 of 26 shots) but it was the Kyrie Irving show on Sunday as the Cavs point guard scored a game-high 29, dished out 10 assists with just 2 turnovers and showed why he has the nastiest handles in the league.
One of the three best moves Kyrie had in the 107-91 victory was a crossover/and-1 shot against Westbrook. The other two came against Alex Abrines, who must have felt like he was in a Pepsi/Uncle Drew ad and had to go home with the stat line of 8 minutes, 0 points, 2 cameos in a Kyrie Irving highlight video.
I was hoping to see Steven Adams become victim #3 in the fourth quarter but Irving let him off the hook and decided to just bury a deep three over him instead.
