Kyrie Irving will not be confused with LeBron James any time soon. (Greg Oden might) But in Cleveland, he has been a sign of hope for a franchise that was believed to be decimated by “The Decision”.
The kid can straight up ball, and tonight, on the road in Denver, he took the ball the length of the court dribbling through 3 guys and hit a lay up with 4 seconds left to defeat the Nuggets 100-99. It is the Cavs 14th win of the season after the team only won 19 last year.
Irving finished with 18 points, 5 Rebounds and 8 Assists. All right around his averages for an impressive rookie season.
