Kyrie Irving 57 points against Spurs (Career-High)


Do you remember when the Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving scored a career-high 57 points on 20 of 32 shooting from the field, including 7 of 7 shooting from three-point range, and 10 of 10 shooting from the free-throw line in his team's 128-125 overtime win over the Spurs in San Antonio, one year ago?

"The kid is special, we all know it, we all see it," James said. "For him to go out and put on a performance like he did tonight was incredible."

"A few of those shots, it just left my hands and I kind of threw them up at the rim and I was lucky enough and blessed enough that they went in," Irving said.

"It was such a fun game," Irving said. "The crowd was into it. They sold out, they came to see a great game and it was. Once Bron gets into those step-back 3s, we were just looking at each other, 'Man, this is just so much fun.' "

It was a great performance by Kyrie Irving and that was the game since he came in the NBA.

But, he is just 24 years old, could we expect more than 57 points?

In the NBA Finals, he defeated Stephen Curry, with 27.1 points per game, and he proved that he could play at the highest level.

What can we expect from him in the NBA 2016/17?
