Uncle Drew Takes the Boston Celtics to the Playground

Kyrie Irving ( a.k.a. “Uncle Drew” ) completely balled out against the Boston Celtics Tuesday night in Cleveland. He finished with a playoff career-high 42 points, including 21 in the third, in a game where LeBron James struggled offensively. Cleveland now has a commanding 3–1 lead in the series, and just needs one more win tonight in Boston to advance to the NBA Finals. They’ll face the Golden State Warriors for the third time in three years. To me, Kyrie Irving is crucial to the Cavs success moving forward. He provides playmaking, and more importantly, scoring, which takes a lot of pressure off of King James. If they have any chance of upsetting Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors, Kyrie will need to be dominant. One thing is for sure: this is one of the most highly-anticipated matchups in NBA Finals History. Hopefully, it will live up to the hype.
