Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving is known for his sick handles and quick hands, and he’s smart enough to just make business decisions when he’s near the rim on the defensive end.
He got caught in a precarious position during Thursday’s game against the Heat, however, and he paid for it.
Irving ended up getting the task of being the rim-protector on a switch, and James Johnson took advantage of it — driving the lane and going right at the Celtics guard. Johnson then elevated and dunked all over Irving — finishing off the play with some serious flair.
Yeesh, there was no mercy shown by JJ there.
