#NBATogetherLive: Kyrie Irving drops career-high 57 points in overtime win vs. San Antonio Spurs

March 2015 dished up an absolute classic.

The Cleveland Cavaliers topped the San Antonio Spurs 128-125 in overtime, with Kyrie Irving compiling a career-high 57 points in the process.

Irving's classic performance was highlighted by two clutch triples in the final 35 seconds of regulation to help send the game to an extra period.

Watch the game:

As if those moments weren't enough, he would then add another 11 points in OT to carry Cleveland over the line.

"Shots were going in. I was getting open, and during the end of the game we never gave up. ... A few of those shots, I just threw them up at the rim, and I was lucky enough and blessed enough that they went in," Irving said postgame.

This tweet from ESPN Stats & Info sums up the performance perfectly.

LeBron James added 31 points for Cleveland.

Tony Parker led San Antonio with 31 points, while Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green each added 24.

Cleveland moved to 42-25 with the win, and would eventually move through to the NBA Finals where they would lose to the Golden State Warriors in six games.
