This was Kyridiculous.

Kyrie Irving was huge for the Cleveland Cavaliers in their Game 3 win over the Detroit Pistons. He scored a game-high 26 points, made three of his six threes and was at times Cleveland's leading offensive presence.

Irving also hit a dagger of a three-pointer to essential seal the Cavs' win. With the shot clock winding down, Irving quickly rose in the right corner off a pass from Matthew Dellavedova and hit a three over the outstretched arm of Tobias Harris. The three put the Cavs up eight with under a minute to play and helped them take a 3-0 series lead.

After he hit the three, Irving celebrated with Lebron James near center court. And LeBron loved Irving's shot, maybe even more than Irving himself.
