The BBVA Rising Stars Challenge in Houston on Friday was the usual low-effort, high-scoring affair we have come to expect from an all-star game. However, things got extremely interesting late in the game when Kyrie Irving and Brandon Knight decided to turn things into a personal game of one-on-one.
The two went after each other a few possessions in a row with about six minutes left in the game. Though Knight did his best to hang in there, he got absolutely embarrassed by Irving, who broke out some filthy moves that left Knight tripping over himself. To his credit, Knight came back down the floor and got Irving back with a crossover, but Kyrie won that battle overall.
Crazy handles and the ability to finish with both hands like that helped make Irving Rookie of the Year last season.Google+
