Kyrie Irving becomes the first player to score over 50 against Gregg Popovich


Gregg Popovich has been known as a basketball mastermind and one of the rare coaches that can shut down all star players with his team defense strategy. Kawhi Leonard earned the NBA Finals MVP trophy last year for guarding LeBron James, but it seems like coach Pop will need to work on his Kyrie Irving defensive plan until the playoffs.

Kyrie Irving not only forced the game against the San Antonio Spurs to go in overtime, but he also hit two crucial three pointers in the last two minutes of the game. If this is not enough to respect the 57 points game that Kyrie had, you should also know that he’s the first player in the history of the NBA to score more than 50 points against a Gregg Popovich led team.
