Kyrie Irving gets hot, leads Cavaliers past Wizards (VIDEO)

Nov 17, 2013, 2:14 AM EST

Cleveland beat Washington Saturday night because Kyrie Irving was the best player on the court — 41 points on 28 shots, plus nine points in the overtime (the Warriors combined only had six).

The Cavaliers have struggled this season — a 4-7 start, a three game losing streak coming into Saturday that led to a contentious team meeting — and most of that is due to an inept offense. That changes when Irving plays like this — they have averaged 93.5 points per 100 possessions this season but it was a much improved 99.3 in this game.

We’ll see if the Cavaliers can build on this, same with Irving (who was shooting 38 percent this season before Saturday).

    Kyrie had not been playing well at all this season so far. It kind of makes you question – with all the depth in the league in terms of point guards, does that actually negate talented players at that position now?
