Jeff Teague Out Duels Kyrie Irving

Last night was proof that this maybe the golden age for point guards in the NBA. When Kyrie Irving and the Cleveland Cavaliers took on the Atlanta Hawks they probably didn’t think Irving would have his work cut out for him but Hawks point guard Jeff Teague wanted to make a statement and he did.

Teague proved last night that he belongs, he went at arguably the best PG in the NBA and came out on top.

Jeff Teague and Kyrie Irving went at it! The two point guards made big plays throughout the game and carried their teams the whole way. Kyrie Irving finished the game with 40 points, 9 assists and 4 steals and he even had one of the best ankle breakers of the year on Jeff Teague:

However Jeff Teague had the last laugh, he finished with 34 points, 14 assists, 3 steals and hit the game winner jumper at the buzzer in double OT!
