Video: Kyrie Irving pulls off tough floater behind the backboard vs. Pistons

If Kyrie Irving is known for two things on the court, it’s his incredible handles and ability to make tough shots. The Brooklyn Nets point guard got to show off both aspects of his game on Saturday against the Detroit Pistons.

After a second-quarter Jarrett Allen screen set him free, Irving froze Detroit big man Andre Drummond with a subtle hesitation move to get to the basket. The 6-foot-2 point guard was unable to get past Drummond and was forced to put up a floater behind the backboard while falling out of bounds.

The Nets prevailed in overtime with the star guard dropping 45 points, six rebounds, and seven assists in 40 minutes for the eighth seed Nets.

Injuries have kept Kyrie Irving sidelined for much of this season but in the games that he has played, the 27-year-old has been impressive. In his ninth NBA season, Irving is averaging a career-high 26.1 points to go along with 6.7 assists and 5.2 rebounds per game.
