WATCH: Kyrie Irving sets LeBron James up for insane off-the-backboard alley-oop

New, comment

Holy LeBron, Batman

Well, the Cavaliers have certainly made an impression to start Game 1 of Cavaliers-Raptors. A Kyle Lowry turnover got Kyrie Irving and LeBron James running and they capped the fast break in ridiculous style.

This is nuts in a thousand different ways, but it’s worth noting that LeBron James is immediately pointing to Kyrie, telling him to put it up off the backboard, and Irving obliges.

The Cavaliers have had a tough time with maintaining consistent energy so far in these playoffs. It remains to be seen if they can keep it up, but that 10-0 run from the Cavaliers was as impressive as they’ve looked all season.

The Raptors answered out of the timeout with a 6-0 run of their own. We’ll keep you updated on all the action here at Fear the Sword.
