Kyrie Irving scores 27 of his 32 points in 2nd half vs Pelicans
“This is special,” said Irving, who scored 27 of his 32 points in the 2nd half against the Pelicans and also dished out nine assists. “We played well as a group.”
The 9 assists were 3 more than his total in the past 2 games which included a donut in 45 minutes vs Utah.
Along with James, the duo scored 49 of the team’s 67 2nd half points – including 30 in the 3rd quarter which helped the Cavs overcome a 9 point deficit.
After the game, he received some praise from James, who called Irving “his quarterback” and got videobombed by Dion Waiters.
