Kyrie Irving's circus shot forces overtime

Published Add your comment

Kyrie Irving throws up a circus shot in crunch time for the Cleveland Cavaliers and somehow gets the ball to drop despite tripping on the fast break to force overtime.

Cavaliers trailing by two with 25 seconds left in the contest, Anderson Verajao makes a great defensive play and the outlet pass finds Kyrie Irving thundering down the court.

Irving in a one-on-one fast break gets the Cleveland fans on their feet, Irving attacks the basket and is tripped, forcing the point guard to just chuck up a prayer and somehow the circus shot falls to send the game to overtime.

The Cavaliers rallied in overtime and outscored the Memphis Grizzlies 13-5 to register a 91-83 win after the extra period in Cleveland.

Next up for Irving and the Cavaliers is a Tuesday night match up with the Sacramento Kings in Cleveland...
