Kyrie Irving Drops 50 Points in Brooklyn Nets Debut, Still Lost to Timberwolves

There were plenty of NBA season debuts across the league last night and one of the best in history happened at the Barclays Center with Kyrie Irving.

Uncle Drew dropped 50 points on the Minnesota Timberwolves, the most for an NBA debut in history, as well as the most by a Nets player. The last time a player did that for the franchise, it was Deron Williams in 2012.

Unfortunately, the Nets still lost to the Wolves in overtime 127-126.

Irving had a shot to win with seconds winding down in OT, but he lost a step on a spin, scrambled to get the ball back from being on the floor and missed.

Though Kyrie had a monster performance at home in front of the BK crowd, he was disappointed he didn’t get the W, but he’s not worried. He told the media after the game that there 81 more games left and he’s not nervous.

How do you think the Nets do this season?
