Kyrie Irving led the Brooklyn Nets to a dominant victory in Orlando on Tuesday night. The Nets are fighting for playoff position in the Eastern Conference. Kyrie proved just how valuable he was as he lit up the Magic in an unprecedented performance.
The Nets cruised to a 150-108 win over Orlando. Kyrie Irving’s teammates and coaches couldn’t believe what they saw. Irving dropped a franchise-record 60 points in what was the finest performance of his career.
Nets coach Steve Nash gushed about Kyrie Irving’s performance after the game. Nash said it was special to watch him play every night. Kyrie was in total control throughout.
“He’s just incredible. I felt like he had my career highlight reel in the first 12 minutes of the game. It’s special to watch him every night — but it’s special to watch him on nights like this, where he’s in total control, total command. He gets wherever he wants and is able to finish amongst the trees. It’s just a pleasure to see it up close and to be a part of it.”
Kyrie Irving scored 41 of his 60 points in the first half alone. In the first 23 minutes of the game, he was lights out from the floor, shooting 14 for 19 from the field and 6 for 7 from three. Kyrie also went 7 for 7 from the charity stripe during the insane outburst.
Kevin Durant said he could see it coming from the opening tip. The Nets survived more than half the season without Kyrie Irving due to his refusal to get vaccinated against COVID-19. The Magic probably wish Orlando had vaccine mandates.
