Social media goes crazy with Kyrie Irving's OT heroics in Celtics-76ers


Kyrie Irving is one of the most clutch players in the NBA, and he saved the Boston Celtics in their 121-114 overtime win against the Philadelphia 76ers on Christmas Day.

Irving hit a shot in the last 30 seconds to tie the score and force overtime, and he continued his hot shooting in the extra period when the C's needed it most. The Sixers led by as many as four in the OT frame, but Irving came to the rescue and hit two huge 3-point shots. The first came with 2:01 left in overtime and put the C's up 115-114. His second 3-pointer increased the Celtics' lead to 118-114, effectively sealing the win for Boston.

Irving finished with 40 points on 17-for-33 shooting in 40 minutes.

Social media went crazy after his heroics. Here's some of the best Twitter reaction to Irving's incredible clutch performance.
