Kyrie Irving with step-back three game winner over Stephen Curry (VIDEO)
OAKLAND — The Cleveland Cavaliers don’t win the NBA championship without MVP LeBron James playing some of the best basketball in NBA Finals history.
But it was Kyrie Irving who had the step-back game winner — the NBA title winner.
The Cavaliers played a lot of isolation basketball in this series, arguably too much at times, but this is a team with players comfortable in that style. Irving is one of those, and he made it count when it mattered.
“We missed shots down the stretch, they missed shots down the stretch, but they hit the big one, Kyrie’s three,” Draymond Green said.
