Kyrie Irving wins MVP of Rising Stars Challenge

Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving scored 34 points including 8 three pointers and took home MVP honors in the Rising Stars Challenge. Kyrie was 12 for 13 from the field and 8 for 8 behind the arc. He also had 9 dimes in a little bit over 27 minutes of game time.

“In the first half, when I hit four threes in a row, I just kept telling ‘em, I’m feeling it,” Irving said. “I’m proud of them for actually having confidence in me. It’s fun getting hot, especially in an All-Star game where millions of people are watching. It was an enjoyable game.”

Kyrie has been a bright spot in Cleveland after the Cavaliers drafted him number one overall in the 2011 NBA Draft. He's averaging 18.1 points and 5.1 assists in 28 games so far this season.
