WATCH: Irving drops career-high vs defending champs Spurs
Kyrie Irving nets a career-high, 2015 NBA season high, and franchise-high 57 points as the Cavs take down the Spurs

MANILA, Philippines – Uncle drew came to play against the defending champs.

Kyrie Irving netted a new career-high and an 2015 NBA season-high on Friday, March 13, scoring 57 points in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ win over the San Antonio Spurs in what was a high-octane overtime affair.

Irving was torching the Spurs all over the field all-game long, and hit two critical 3-pointers down the stretch of the fourth period to force OT after San Antonio had led by six with a little under two minutes to go. He also had 5 assists and 3 rebounds.

LeBron James wasn’t too shabby too in his first game back at San Antonio’s home turf since losing to the Spurs in the 2014 NBA Finals as a member of the Miami Heat. James finished with 31 points to go along with 7 assists and 5 rebounds.

The Cavs, now 42-25, is in second place in the Eastern Conference and have won 7 of their last 10 games. –
