During last night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, Kyrie Irving landed hard on his face and suffered a broken bone in his jaw. But thanks to a black mask that resulted in Irving being called "The Dark Knight" by his teammates, the injury didn't hold him back from playing in tonight's contest versus the Knicks. Even though the Cavaliers barely lost 103-102, the 20-year-old point guard still dropped a career-best 41 points with 5 assists and 5 rebounds at the Garden.
Check out some reactions from Irving's mask on Twitter below.
