Kyrie Irving's 40-point performance during Sunday's Game 4 wasn't enough to lift the Dallas Mavericks over the Los Angeles Clippers, though the star guard certainly had an outing to remember.

Late into the fourth quarter, Irving showcased his impressive finishing skills at the rim, as he navigated through three Clippers defenders in order to score a stunning lay-in.

Irving fearlessly drove to the basket against the Los Angeles trio of James Harden, Paul George and Terance Mann, all of whom collapsed around him and attempted to disrupt his shot. Despite the swarming presence of the three defenders, Irving was able to knock down the basket with a crafty move.

Irving's finesse at the rim left the basketball world stunned, and NBA fans had plenty of praise for the 32-year-old on social media.
