The win for the Cleveland Cavaliers was very much in the bag, but to pour salt in the Boston Celtics' wounds, Kyrie Irving elected to get flashy late in the fourth quarter.

Irving teased a behind-the-back pass to Kevin Love in the corner, faking out Jae Crowder in the process.

This gave the All-Star guard a clear path to the basket for the cheeky left-handed layup.

Irving finished with a playoff career-high 42 points, breaking his old mark of 41 set in Game 5 of last year's NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors. He connected on 15-of-22 from the field, 4-of-7 from deep, and 8-of-9 from the charity stripe in 41 minutes of action.

Cleveland took Game 4 Tuesday night, 112-99, and can send the Celtics packing from this year's playoffs at the TD Garden Thursday.
