Kyrie Irving is universally lauded for his ballhandling wizardry and shot-making prowess. What a testament it is to the All-Star’s overall talent level that arguably his most impressive attribute, finishing, is an afterthought to most of his fans.
This is as pretty a lay-in as we’ll see all season. And it’s not like Irving maneuvered around a traffic cone to finish it, either – that’s John Wall he takes contact from and finishes through.
LeBron James sure seems to think so, but The King has other reasons to smile, too. His Cleveland Cavaliers lead the Washington Wizards 65-51 at intermission.
