The Playoffs belong to Kyrie Irving

Kyrie Irving can’t do any wrong out on the floor. He has been nothing less than stellar in these playoffs which is why the Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t seen a loss yet. Everything is going well for him: the pull up jumper, finishing at the rim with contact, hitting the three, and even getting others involved. Looking at his numbers, he’s averaging 24.8 points per game and 5.2 assists per game. And those points are coming so efficiently. He’s shooting 50% from the field and 50% from three; you can’t ask for much better than that.

Kyrie Irving is playing at a high level and is low-key owning the NBA Playoffs.  After only averaging 19.6 points and 4.7 assists during the regular season, Irving has definitely peaked at the right time. Some may make the argument that, “well the Cavaliers haven’t really seen any competition” and while there might be a little truth to that, Irving’s play has still been dynamic and if Cleveland wants any shot at winning the Finals, they are going to need this same production from their point guard. He’s earned the right to have his name besides Curry, Durant, and James when discussing the best performances of the 2016 NBA Playoffs.
