Kyrie Irving has looked bouncier than ever. So far this season, in clutch situations (games within five in the final five minutes), his numbers are unfathomable. In 24 minutes of action, he’s tallied 41 points on 57 percent shooting while handing out seven assists with no turnovers. Yes, that’s 41 points in what amounts to one half of basketball. “Been on more of a plant-based diet, getting away from the animals and all that,” Irving told the broadcast team. “I had to get away from that. So my energy is up; my body feels amazing.”

I thought people just said it just because it was a healthier food but I can feel it. I can definitely feel it.”

I feel better overall, in everything that I do. I can take in more information easier. My mind is just open.”
