The Sports Science crew is back and this time they are breaking down Kyrie Irving’s step-back 3-point shot. You know, the one that he hit over Steph Curry in Game 7 of last year’s NBA Finals.

According to the crew, Irving has been hitting a ridiculous 73.7% of his step-back threes during the 2017 postseason. If that’s true, then I suggest every shot he takes for the rest of the NBA Finals should be a step-back three.

And here’s Kyrie showing off his step back in practice before Game 2.
