Is there any doubt who the best player on this team is?  The unselfish-to-a-fault mindset of the starting five needs to end.  This is Kyrie's team and everything needs to flow through him until somebody else proves that they deserve a share of that responsibility.

Ironic that Kyrie spent much of his post game interview with Abby praising his teammates and talking about the trust he has in them. Using Marcus Morris game tying 3 as an example. Sometimes Kyrie tries to be too unselfish, but I think he recognized tonight that he needed to grab the game by the scruff of the neck.

So after Stevens got so much blame for the first half does he get some love for the comeback win?

Nope. This was all on Kyrie (and to a lesser amount Brown and Mook), as he put the team on his back and willed us to victory. Brad didn't really have much to do with it, other than not messing it up, which is a pretty low bar.

I will give him credit for sticking with our guys so long on the first night of a back to back. Probably figured this was a better chance of a win than tomorrow night without Kyrie, but props regardless.

Phoenix's coach takes the cake for dumb coach moves tonight after that last 5:07. Not fouling in the last regulation play was an enormously idiotic move, but it is rivaled by him not even calling a single timeout in OT to slow our major run down and set something up for his guys when they came up empty a few trips in a row.

Kyrie giving away his jersey and sneakers to Celtics fans in Phoenix.

How awesome is that.

He tends to do that. Did for a few vets last season and a young fan dressed as Uncle Drew for Halloween this season. I'm a Kyrie fan and i'm not apologizing for it anymore.

Brown with and amazing second half. Morris too. But Kyrie was unconscious. Dude is back!!!!

Brown needs to play like aggressively like that all game every game.  These guys are still figuring out their roles.  When they said screw it and went all out, they were great.  Hopefully they will learn from this.

THIs win is all on Kyrie. He put the team on his back offensively and got a key contest on Bookers layup that was huge

Kyrie: Defensive stopper!

Also got two key steaks, one in the 4th and another one in OT

Medium rare?

Lol [dang] iPhone spell check  :P I meant steals

Nope. This was all on Kyrie (and to a lesser amount Brown and Mook), as he put the team on his back and willed us to victory. Brad didn't really have much to do with it, other than not messing it up, which is a pretty low bar.

So when the players are missing 6-8 open layups and about 10 wide, wide open three point shots, it's Stevens fault. But when the players start making those shots, it's all on the players. Got it!  ::) ::) ::)

Brown was almost exclusively on Booker in the first half and he was held to 3-9 for 10 points. His effort was great almost all game defensively. But his offensive aggression in the second half is definitely something he needs to do all game. Few can stop him when he can get a lane to the basket. I could easily see him building off this and becoming this team's second leading scorer. The last 4-5 games or so he is starting to find that rhythm
