Kyrie Irving performed like a smooth operator with his left and right hand. Irving could not have played any better offense against Warriors best defender, Klay Thompson. During one play of the game Thompson played perfect defense but Kyrie was locked and loaded.

He drilled a contested three pointer and the crowd went nuts!

At the blow of the referees whistle, a disappointing Thompson walked to the bench shaking his head in disbelief.

Throughout the game, he continued to break down his defenders.

With 2:16 left in the fourth quarter, Irving got to his hot spot, hit the bottom of the net, and yelled “I told you so” towards the crowd as they cheered with joy. The season isn’t over yet.

Steph Curry and the Warriors got behind in the early goings of the game. Dub Nation was rocked.

Kevin Durant finished with 35 points, Thompson scored 13, and Draymond Green had 16 points.

Irving scored a career high of 41 points and his All-Star teammate Lebron James dominated the floor. He was a triple threat.

James ended the game with 31 points, 11 assist, and 10 rebounds.

Reports say ABC would have lost $150 million if the Warriors would have won tonight and ended the series. Was it rigged to avoid a financial loss?
