Mask or no mask, Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving is nearly unstoppable when he's as good as he was throughout Monday's 110-102 overtime victory over the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center, Texas.

Irving scored a game-high 47 points, and he also contributed six assists in helping the Celtics win the club's 16th straight contest.

The 2016 NBA champion produced impressive dribbling displays in both halves, and he drained five of his seven three-point attempts.

Perhaps his biggest bucket of the evening came in the extra period, when he banked in a layup with 48 seconds remaining to increase Boston's lead to 106-102.

He added a pair of free throws in the final 20 seconds to cement the eight-point victory.

Irving is adding to his MVP candidacy with each game.
