Kyrie Irving Shakes Up Lance Stephenson with Ankle-Breaking Crossover

Rivea RuffContributorApril 18, 2017

Gotta be quicker than that, Lance! 

Kyrie Irving bruised ankles and egos (as the announcer said) on Monday night against the Indiana Pacers when he shook Lance Stephenson nearly out of his shoes during Game 2. 

With just 28 seconds left in the third quarter of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference quarterfinal matchup, Irving hit Stephenson with one of his infamous crossovers, sending the Pacers swingman stumbling. 

With Stephenson out of the way, Irving knocked down a jumper just inside the arc, giving the Cavs a 93-75 lead.
