Kyrie Irving scores 35 points, hits huge shots down the stretch to beat Thunder (VIDEO)

Feb 3, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT

The Cavaliers aren’t supposed to be able to take down a team like the Thunder. But when you have Kyrie Irving making shots like these down the stretch, anything is possible.

Irving scored 35 points on the night, but 13 of those came in the final 2:52, with the game on the line and the defense focused solely on stopping him.

It was an extremely impressive performance by Irving, and you could tell he earned the respect of Russell Westbrook, as the two shared an embrace that lasted a few seconds after the final buzzer had sounded.
