Video: Kyrie Irving’s defense leads to powerful LeBron James slam
He may not be known for his defense but when Kyrie Irving is locked in, he can make a difference on that end of the floor.
Irving showed off his defensive skills in the first quarter of Game 4 between the Raptors and Cavs by skillfully stripping the ball away from Cory Joseph. The Cavs’ All-Star guard then quickly moved the ball up the floor by passing to LeBron James, who sealed the play with an emphatic dunk.
Clearly, when Irving is locked in on defense, good things happen for the Cavs.
