Oklahoma City Thunder forward Jerami Grant was left out on an island against Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving early in Sunday’s game in Boston.
It did not go too swimmingly for Grant. Check out Irving absolutely embarrass Grant in transition — going around the world before ultimately laying the ball in.

That’s just all sorts of filthy right there. You can’t even practice this elite-level ball-handling and finishing skills.
Despite being slowed down to injury some in recent days, Irving continues to play stellar basketball. He dropped nine points and three assists in the first quarter alone on Sunday.
Irving is also averaging 29.7 points and 10.0 assists over the past 10 games. He’ll more than likely meet those numbers when all is said and done against OKC.
Let’s just hope for Grant’s sake, that he’s not put in this position again. That was just brutal.
