Cavaliers coach Byron Scott said he suggested Irving try to win the game with a three-pointer as opposed to trying to force overtime with a drive. The Cavaliers played Friday night, while the Raptors were rested.
“I told him, ‘I’m glad you took my advice, went for the win, went for the kill,’” Scott said. “During the game, he’s still a kid. He’s just having fun, just enjoying himself and he’s just playing at an unbelievably high level right now.””
