Kyrie Irving on clutch Jayson Tatum: "Some people have it and some people don't. It's just as simple as that. I think he's pretty much shown that he can play, as people say, with the big boys at the end of the game. Without wavering in terms of his decision-making or anything like that, he trusts what we have going on and he knows where his opportunities will be, especially down the stretch."
