In the second quarter, Kyrie Irving took control of the court as he led his team to a 39-27 victory over the Warriors by halftime. At this point in time, it seemed like there was no stopping Irving from scoring points as he continued to dominate throughout much of the third quarter.
In the fourth quarter, the Warriors also started to make a comeback with a few minutes left in the game.
In his last few minutes on the court, Irving was able to score another 14 points and he had 48 total for the night.
With just under three minutes left to go in regulation, Steph Curry started getting into foul trouble which allowed Irving and company to start taking advantage.
With a little over 40 seconds left in the game, Curry fouled out and this gave the Cavs an opportunity to take control of the ball. The Warriors, however, were able to keep them from scoring any points in the last few seconds of the game.
Overtime and final score
In overtime, it was Kyrie’s teammate Tristan Thompson that was able to take control of the court for a bit. He led his team with 10 points while shooting 5/9 for the night.
