VIDEO: Kyrie Irving sends Thabo Sefolosha into a powerslide

You have to be careful when you're going against Kyrie Irving on a basketball court. The Cleveland Cavaliers' point guard has such an incredible handle on the ball that he'll send you into a powerslide at the turn of a hip. Just ask Oklahoma City Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha. The Thunder defender was defending Irving before he was hit with a pull-back crossover that sent Sefolosha into a powerslide toward the baseline.
