Following Mo Williams’ first game back from injury since December 22nd, the former Cleveland point guard had nothing but positive things to say about Cavalier Kyrie Irving. “Kyrie is Kyrie. He’s a hell of a basketball player. He’s one the better point guards in the league. He’s up there with the elite. I’m a fan of Kyrie. It’s fun to see his growth in this league. He is going to be special…His potential is astronomical.” It was a tough night for Mo Williams, who missed a point blank lay-up that would have given the Jazz the lead with less than five seconds left, and then missed his chance at redemption when his three pointer missed the mark as well with just a second left. Williams was surprised to see his lay-up roll off the rim like it did. “I’ve never seen a lay-up come out like that. I haven’t seen the reply but that was amazing. I don’t think I’ve ever missed a lay-up even (while) practicing. I’ve shot a trillion lay-ups in my life but I’ve never missed one like that how it went in and came out.” [Related: WFNY Podcast]
