Kyrie Irving’s Shot Chart From Career-High 57-Points Against Spurs

Kyrie Irving went off for 57 points on Thursday night in an overtime win against the Spurs.

The figure represents a new career-high for the 22-year-old guard.

Irving went 7-for-7 from long range, including a 3-pointer with less than a second left to send the game into overtime.

Irving’s 57 points are the most ever scored against the Spurs on their home court.

The stunning loss happened after Irving closed the gap with three three-pointers in the final minutes of regulation.

He and LeBron James drained several more each in overtime to put the game away.

The game pitted LeBron against the team that beat him in last season’s NBA Finals, which is thought by many to have played a big part in prompting him to return to Cleveland.

There’s a fair chance that the game presented a preview of this season’s finals, although Irving and a number of other Cavs players lack playoff experience.
