Kyrie Irving once again showed he is one of the best finishers in the league with this wild shot against the Detroit Pistons.
On this play, Pistons defender Bruce Brown hounded Kyrie in hopes he couldn’t get the ball. Eventually, Irving retreated to the side logos of Little Caesar Arena just to get the rock. A slight nudge from Brooklyn Nets big Jarrett Allen on a screen gave Kyrie just enough room to go to work. Irving drove the baseline and got bumped by Allen’s man, Andre Drummond. The refs swallowed their whistles as Kyrie was sliding out of bounds. Before he could turn the ball over, Irving heaved a floater behind the backboard that went straight through the net. Remind me never to play Uncle Drew at HORSE.
The footwear of choice for this game was the Nike Kyrie Low 2. The low-cut sneaker was designed with fast guard-play in mind. The shoe is low-to-the-ground for added court-feel. The Kyrie Low 2 does boast rectangular Zoom Air units in the heel and forefoot for extra bounce. The upper consists of a durable textile material, with plastic pieces used as heel reinforcement.
