Watch: Kyrie Irving throws down his first dunk of the season

Kyrie Irving threw down his first dunk of the season against the Indiana Pacers.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Kyrie Irving isn't really a dunker. When he gets inside, his finishes high off the glass or gets fouled. Or both.

Coming into this year, Irving had dunked just 13 times in four seasons and coming into tonight's game against the Indiana Pacers, Irving had yet to attempt a single dunk.

That changed in the first quarter.

Aside from Irving's dunk, this is truly a product a great outlet pass from Kevin Love to find LeBron James at half court and then a quick bounce pass from LeBron to hit Irving in stride near the rim. That's simply beautiful fastbreak basketball.
