This is what Kevin Durant was referencing when raving about Kyrie Irving, and that's what makes Cleveland's 115-110 win over the Thunder on Saturday night so much tougher to swallow. Oklahoma City knew exactly what was coming but when it was crunch time had no answer for the 20-year-old avalanche that stormed Quicken Loans Arena and powered the Cavs to a signature win. Irving once again was incredible against OKC, scoring 13 of his game-high 35 points in the fourth quarter. The second-year point guard and first-time All-Star took over the game in the final six minutes, slicing through the Thunder's increasingly ineffective road defense to score and set up teammates with what seemed to be effortlessness and ease.
