Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving set records Wednesday night (Jan. 28) in their 99-94 win at home against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Irving scored a career-high 55 points and set a Cavs franchise record with 11 3-pointers.

The point guard seemed to have no trouble carrying the team on his back as star player and teammate LeBron James sat the game due to a sprained right wrist. Irving was 10-for-10 from the free throw line and scored 24 of the Cavs final 28 points.

And just when you thought Irving had done enough, he hit the go-ahead shot which was a 3-pointer to break the tie with seconds left in the game.

Irving was coming off a game where he just scored 38 against the Detroit Pistons Tuesday (Jan. 27) and the Cavs have now won 8 straight.

Has Irving been motivated to play harder since not being selected as a starter in this year’s NBA All-Star game?

Check out this video of the celebration the Cavs gave Irving after the game.

lol better quality moment with my brothers. #thankful
