Here's a suggestion for all the NBA teams out there that are not the Cleveland Cavaliers: maybe do everything in your power to prevent Kyrie Irving from catching the ball to the right side of the basket along the three-point line, about even with the free-throw line.
It seems to be where he does his best work
Irving victimized the triple-double machine with some fancy footwork and a freeze ray of a crossover before scoring an and-1, much to the arousal of analyst Hubie Brown.

Irving scored 29 points on 12-of-22 shooting to go with 10 assists and just two turnovers in Cleveland's 107-91 victory.
"Show no mercy," Uncle Drew said of his mentality in the second half, when he scored 16.
Westbrook notched another triple-double but was wildly inefficient shooting the ball, going 7-of-26 to amass 20 points along with 12 boards and 10 dimes.
