Kyrie Irving is hurt, and he won’t be able to contain Stephen Curry and his bombardment of three-pointers. He’s also too slow now because of his knee and ankle injuries and won’t be able to score.
Tell that to premier defensive-player Draymond Green, who got burned on a one-on-one fastbreak against Irving.
Irving looked pretty confident, absorbing the contact on Green and finishing the pretty layup. He struggled to start the game, but LeBron James was happy to carry the load for the Cavaliers — yet again.
