Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has upped his game in recent weeks after the team fell flat earlier in the season.

That was no more apparent than what we saw against the Miami Heat Monday evening. With his team up six early in the third quarter, Irving put up one heck of a highlight-reel pass.

It included the NBA champ going between the legs on a dish off to Marcus Smart.



It’s good that Smart nailed the three. If he hadn’t, Irving would never let his teammate live it down.

This is just a continuation of Irving’s stellar recent play. He entered Monday’s action averaging 28.8 points, 9.0 assists and shooting at a 56 percent mark from distance over the past three games.
