Defenders who aren't ready for Kyrie Irving's smooth crossovers are going to give up easy buckets. Slovenia's Goran Dragic learned that the hard way in an exhibition against the United States on Tuesday.

Irving put the moves on the Slovenian defender in the first quarter of the exhibition, and from there, nobody was going to be able to stop the point guard from getting two points.

In the second quarter, Irving showed off some more of his moves.

This is just a reminder to all defenders that they better to be able to stop on a dime when Irving has the ball.
