Kyrie scored 17 points in the 4th Q to lead the Cavs from 17 points back against the Pistons, 102-101. Quite a stat-sheet stuffer night: 25 points, five RBs, 8 assists, two steals and two blocks. Also, six turnovers.
nolan getting some burn in the blowout against the spurs (three spurs stars out)
man, i just don't see why he's not getting more minutes......silky smooth
"Either we're going down, or they are....... Kirk out!"
Almost said that myself!
Kyrie Irving got 34 points and 8 assists. They are about to announce MVP and if it is anybody but KI I will be shocked. This game like all the others has ZERO defense but it is still fun to see him tear it up that much.
Yup Kyrie Irving! 34 points and 9 assists (My bad earlier when I said 8) he also went 8-8 from 3!!!! Hopefully he will add Rookie of the Year to his awards list.

The 34 points is a rookie record in this game (previously 33 by Lebron James)!
Also at the halftime interview. Craig Sager told Kyrie that Kenny Smith refused to say what school Kyrie was from.
Kyrie responded "Never heard of him. Who's he?" and then when he left he made sure he cheesed to the camera to make sure everyone knew he was joking.
So glad this guy chose Duke...great representative for our school.
I guess Team Chuck lives by the three
Not leaving until the game is over.
That's awesome; he has a great personality and it's not surprising he's become popular with the fans, even if it is only by default. As this grueling season wears on I hope he does get some more floor time.
Kyrie and the Cavs with a big game coming up tonight against Jeremy Lin and the Knicks. I'll be heading to a sports bar in Palo Alto to root for Kyrie. Should be fun to stir the pot a little bit. (Although I have enjoyed the Linsanity around here so far!)
A buddy of mine has a site that is doing a NBA players by college tournament and this round has Duke vs UNC. Its obvious we are better but the fan vote throws it off.
This doesn't even include Henderson - who might start over Redick? Certainly either one would dominate Vince "bc" Carter
I haven't been able to follow and update as I would like, but....
Tonight Boozer, Deng and the Bulls take on Kyrie and the Cavs. Bulls up big in the 3rd quarter. Kyrie did not dress due to illness. Deng is having a huge game with 21pts in 24 minutes and Boozer has 13pts in 20 minutes.
A lot of Dukies see action tonight: Shelden and the Nets, Dunleavy and the Bucks, Brand and Philly, Lance and the Hornets, Maggette and Gerald and the Cats, Battier and Miami, Hill and the Suns, McRoberts and the Lakers. It will be cool to see the stats for everyone tomorrow!
Also, this is veering Off Topic a little: but LeBron had an incredible performance last night against Portland:
38 points on just 22 shots, 11rebs, 6ast, 5stl, 1blk, and not a single turnover.
Dude started at Center defensively and played PF offensively. And guarded every single position during the course of the game. Unreal. The game before he had 36points on 23 shots, including 6-8 from 3. On the season he is .549 from the field and .431 from three.
