Video: Cavaliers' Kyrie Irving hits last-second lay-up to beat Sixers in double OT

http://youtu.be/8QPMSXEiQWw

Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving hit a last-second, game-winning lay-up to beat the Sixers 127-125 in double overtime on Saturday night.

With less than 10 seconds remaining in the game, Irving brought the ball up the court against Michael Carter-Williams. Philadelphia ran a double team at him near halfcourt, and Irving crossed over to his left to avoid it. Using a hesitation move to turn the corner on Carter-Williams, Irving entered the paint from the left angle, surrounded by four Philadelphia defenders.

Irving elevated with less than three seconds on the clock, hanging momentarily before kissing in a double-clutch left-handed lay-up off the backboard with 0.6 seconds remaining. Philadelphia was unable to score on its ensuing possession.

The game-winner capped a monster evening for Irving, who finished with a game-high 39 points (on 15-for-33 shooting), 12 assists and five rebounds in 48 minutes. Dion Waiters added 24 points (on 9-for-19 shooting) for the Cavaliers.

Evan Turner scored a team-high 31 points (on 9-for-23 shooting) and added 10 rebounds. Carter-Williams finished with 21 points (on 9-for-23 shooting), 13 assists, seven rebounds, two steals and two blocks for Philadelphia in the loss.

Cleveland improved to 3-4 with the win; Philadelphia dropped to 4-3 with the loss.
