The Cleveland Cavaliers played the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night. It was an incredible basketball game:
Greatest regular season game I've ever seen. Greatest Cavs game I've ever seen. 2nd greatest NBA game I've ever seen (Game 6, 2013)

When it was all said and done, the Cavaliers escaped with a 128-125 overtime victory despite trailing by six points with 33 seconds left. It happened, because of Kyrie Irving (also because of some missed free throw by Kawhi Leonard):

This game reached #THISGAME levels and then rocketed right past it.
Irving scored a career-high 57 points, and he scored the last nine points of regulation, including the game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer. He then followed that up with 11 points in the overtime period. The 57 points broke LeBron James’s previous franchise record of 56 points in a game, and I’m pretty sure there were a bunch of other records broken. March Madness.
