How Kendall Marshall Stirred Kyrie Irving’s Competitive Juices In His Debut Return

12.21.15 3 years ago

Kyrie Irving returned to action Sunday, but he didn’t really look like himself during eight (he was limited to just four minutes per quarter) listless minutes in the first half of Cleveland’s game against the Sixers.

He was only 1-of-6 from the field in that time, and that lone field goal came when he found himself cherrypicking following a LeBron steal.

The layup alone wasn’t the type of bucket to ignite a player of Kyrie’s caliber, and a six-month layoff isn’t something you just come back from in one half of basketball.

Fortunately, Kendall Marshall decided to try and take Kyrie in the post early in the third quarter.
