Video: Kobe Bryant, Kyrie Irving put on a show

Dec 12, 2012, 9:18 AM EST

It really felt like the Kyrie Irving and Kobe Bryant show at points Tuesday night. And it was damn entertaining.

When the two went head-to-head Kobe got the best of the battle, but Irving and the Cavaliers fot the win.

Both guys put up big lines but both were efficient, too — Kobe had 42 points on 16-of-28 shooting, Irving had 28 points on 21 shots and had 11 assists, too. They both played well, Irving just got a little more help from his teammates. (Which might want to worry Lakers fans a little.)
