VIDEO: Kyrie Irving's Coast-To-Coast Game-Winning Layup Vs. Nuggets

Rookie Kyrie Irving provided his third game-winning shot of the season for the 14-win Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night against the Denver Nuggets.

With the Cavs down one, Irving took the ball after the inbounds with about 12 seconds remaining in the game. Irving then took it coast-to-coast and finished with a cool and collected up-and-under reminiscent of a wily veteran guard, not a 19-year-old kid.

Here's video via CBS Sports:

Irving's game-winning layup helped the Cavs snap a six-game losing streak. He scored 14 of his 18 points in the game in the second half -- 10 of those points coming in the final three minutes of the game.
