Vaccineset Irving with 60-point gala
Basketball Star Kyrie Irving has restored for headlines again. But with a record-jump 60-point gala, it was Brooklyn Netsy this time.
Kyrie Irving hit his chest three times after his 60-point show, the teammates fell the controversial basketball star of the Brooklyn Nets around his neck – and Franz Wagner could only be amazed. “After the first half we wanted to take the ball for the rest of the game out of his hands,” said the German professional of the Orlando Magic, “but not even that really worked.”
Careerhighter, new club record and the second time 60 points in the NBA within a day: Irving reminded the Nets at the 150: 108 victory at the Magic about Franz and Moritz Wagner on the fact that enormous quality was lacking in this season too often. Because he was not vaccinated against the coronavirus, the 29-year-old had missed the start of the season and is still not allowed to run in home games.
But his existence as a part-time professional effects his efficiency apparently influences no piece. Already in the week before he had scored 50 points at the Charlotte Hornets. Now he improved his own bottom of 2015 by three counters. Already after the first half was Irving, the proud eight of his twelve threesome turned at 41 points. More counter had collected at the break last NBA legend Kobe Bryant in 2003.
Irving threatens non-consideration
In addition, Irving also equalized the season’s story, which Karl-Anthony Towns had just set up from the Minnesota Timberwolfes only the day before. Nets-coach Steve Nash praised, Irving is “just incredible”. Even the Canadian will certainly ponder what the Nets would be able to do with an Irving in continuous use.
So Brooklyn fights as a eighth in the East still around the playoff entry. Stay the Corona rules as they are up to date will be Irving only in three of the remaining 13 main rounds. Only on Monday was the team with a fine of more than $ 50,000, because Irving had stopped on Sunday against the New York Knicks in the cabin. As unclear he is allowed to visit games in New York, but do not work in the hall.
At night to Thursday, the Dallas Mavericks now travel to Brookyln. Irving joked, he will then carry “a press sentence” and “start asking questions” because he will not be able to stand on the parquet. He did not give up hope. Yes, the location is “a bit unpleasant”, but: “My belief in that things turn, did not change,” says Irving, “he did not catch up.”
