Cavaliers rookie guard Kyrie Irving put on a shooting show for the ages Friday night in earning MVP honors in the NBA Rising Stars Challenge at the All-Star festivities in Orlando, Florida.

The former Duke star gunned home 34 points as Team Chuck beat Team Shaq. Irving hit all eight of his three-point shots to amass that point.

His Cavs teammate, Tristan Thompson, played a solid game as the two young members of the Wine and Gold put on a show.

Irving is the third Cav to earn MVP honors in such a game. Zydrunas Ilgauskas won the honor in 1998, and Daniel Gibson was MVP in 2008.

Irving’s weekend is not over. He takes part in the skills competition on All-Star Saturday Night.
