#NBATopShotThis: Kyrie Irving's impossible lefty finish

Tough-shot making is Kyrie Irving's business, but the Brooklyn Nets guard continues to leave jaws on the floor with his spectacular repertoire of buckets.

In the Nets' 114-112 win over the New York Knicks, Irving pulled off a string of tough shots, none better than this effort in the first quarter.

Swooping into the paint, Irving drew contact from Reggie Bullock, who recovered to contest the shot and despite the help defence from Taj Gibson, Irving adjusted mid-air switching the ball to his left hand before falling back to get the bucket to go over the outstretched arms of the two Knicks defenders.

Irving recorded his seventh 40-point game of the season, on 14-of-28 shooting and 5-of-12 from the 3-point line, adding seven assists.

The seven-time All-Star is one to watch on the Top shot marketplace, with his highest sale at $79,999 (USD).
