Irving's 55-point performance in late January figured to stand as his best game of the season, but he was able to trump it Thursday, putting up the highest point total by a visitor in San Antonio ever, per the game telecast. He had the chance to gun for his previous career high thanks to nailing a big three-pointer at the buzzer to tie the game at the end of regulation and send it into overtime. He scored 15 straight points for the Cavaliers during the end of the fourth quarter and the beginning of overtime.
Irving also kicked in five assists, four steals and three rebounds in 47 minutes in the win, the Cavaliers' third straight. They'll look to keep rolling Sunday against the Magic in Orlando.
