No matter what Klay Thompson did to stop Kyrie Irving last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers' All-Star point guard damn near scored at will during Game 5 of the NBA Finals in Oakland.
But there was one moment in which Klay got the best of Kyrie and nearly knocked him out — with his hot breath.
In a sequence during Game 5 last night, you can clearly see what appears to be Irving reacting to Klay's breath. And his reaction is priceless...
Aw, man! If there's a Warriors' player whose breath stank, we'd think it would be Stephen Curry. No shots, either. We just say that off the way he's constantly chomping on that mouthguard of his.
But seeing Kyrie's reaction, it's as if Klay's breath shook his soul. It's so hot that it might have killed Uncle Drew. Either that or Kyrie seen a ghost because his reaction was too real.
Thompson's alleged foul breath only momentarily staggered Irving, though, as he lit Dub Nation up for 41 points on a ridiculous 17-of-24 shooting from the field. That and a 41-point effort from LeBron James easily powered the Cavs to a 112-97 road win with Game 6 back in Cleveland on Thursday night.
Let's see if Irving can continue making the Finals a lituation — not to mention, if he'll offer up another priceless reaction to Thompson's breath. Maybe Kryie should implore Klay to live up to his Splash Brother nickname and try a splash of mouthwash.
You already know that Kyrie will be dreading 1-on-1, man-to-man isolations come Thursday night.
