Kyrie Irving scored 35 points equalling his season-high to beat Atlanta. Giving the Cleveland Cavaliers homecourt advantage in the east during the playoffs. As per King James, Uncle Drew has kicked things up a notch heading into the postseason.
“I told him we all need to be better,” James said when asked for his response to Irving. “And it’s not about what you did tonight, it’s about what you come back from a little adversity from a personal performance. He didn’t play well and he put a lot on his shoulders in that game and we all needed to be better in that game. It wasn’t just him and the good thing about it is we have another opportunity to accept the challenge and that’s what you do, to be able to accept it and move on and be better.”
