Kyrie Irving hits game-winning layup to give Cavs a 2OT win over Sixers (VIDEO)

Nov 10, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

Kyrie Irving had it all working against the Sixers on Saturday — the floater, the midrange jumper, and shots from three-point distance.

But the speed and agility he displayed is what really is tough to account for, as evidenced by the way he was able to get to the rim and convert the game-winning shot with 0.6 seconds remaining in double overtime to send his Cavaliers past the Sixers.

Irving finished with 39 points on 15-of-33 shooting, to go along with five rebounds and 12 assists in just over 48 minutes of action.

    Shouldve never gone to 2nd OT. Turner was fouled as he hit the layup to tie the game in 1st OT and refs never called. Shouldve been And 1,game over

    watching this game live was great. So competitive

    He didn’t even shoot fifty percent, great bucket at the end though.

    Turner should’ve got the And 1 on his layup to tie the game at the end of the first OT; ref didn’t call it. Sixers should’ve had that one in their W column.

    Kyrie is the real deal. But it looks like he might be the only one of the four top five picks they made in the last few years who is worth anything.

      You obviously have not watched Tristan Thompson. http://www.basketball-reference.com/players/t/thomptr01.html

        The link you provided shows that the only thing Tristan Thompson has improved on in the past 3 years is his free throw shooting. I thought he looked good the other night, but giving a link to his stats was probably not the best idea. His per 36 minutes numbers are down from a year ago across the board.

      • hbdbrowns33 - Nov 11, 2013 at 4:31 PM

        He is a double double machine and his per 36 minute numbers may be down his overall numbers in most categories are up.

    Evan Turner had an And 1 after his game-tying layup at the end of the first OT. Ref never blew the whistle; awful call. Never should’ve went to 2nd OT.

    Kyrie did have a sick layup to end the 1st OT which he almost made.

    Agreed. Thompson is a piece
