Kyrie Irving dropped 50 points in his Brooklyn Nets debut, however it wasn't sufficient for the Nets to get a premiere night triumph, tumbling to Minnesota 127-126 at Barclays Center, Wednesday.

Irving turned into the primary Nets player since Deron Williams in 2012 to score at least 50 points in a game — and the seventh in Nets' establishment history. He likewise included eight bounce back and seven helps to his noteworthy detail line. Furthermore, he didn't turn the ball over. Not once.

Indeed, he turned into the main player in NBA history to pile on a 50/7/7 line without a turnover since turnovers turned into an authority NBA detail in 1977. It was additionally the most focuses scored by a player in his introduction with another group, besting the old record set in 1984 by Kiki Vandeweghe playing for Portland.

What's more, the point absolute was seven short of his individual profession high, set in March 2015 when he was still with Cleveland.

Yet, the main thing that made a difference was the final product.

"He was exceptional. Clearly, an incredible presentation for him. Simply baffling we made such a major gap for us," Kenny Atkinson said. "The main half we were totally out of match up."

What's more, the end was more than baffling.

Following a couple of free tosses from Irving, the Nets trailed by one with 37 seconds left. They constrained a miss from Karl-Anthony Towns with 20 seconds left and the entryway was left all the way open.

The structure was prepared to eject, ball in Kyrie's grasp.

Nets fans needed the minute to occur, yet Kyrie slipped as time winded down, got up and missed an open look as time terminated.

"None of that issues except if you get the success. The race is to get the same number of wins as you can," said Irving, "I fell. I was making another move and simply lost my balance, lost my equalization. By one way or another I got it back and just got the chance to get my elbow pointed at the edge," said Irving,

The Nets, in the interim presently have not won a season opener since 2012. Towns, who commonly goes off against the Nets, completed with 36 points and 14 bounce back, while Andrew Wiggins, who did what needs to be done for Minnesota, completed with 21.

REWIND

With the group on its feet and Irving putting on a show, the Nets appeared to be in great hands. Tied at 112 each, Irving ventured back and nailed a three with 1:12 outstanding which gave the Nets a noteworthy lead.

Yet, at that point, Towns tied it up at 115 each with his very own three.

Down jogged Kyrie and the Nets. He drove, got the opening on the pattern and dished it off to Jarrett Allen who was fouled with 5.7 seconds left. Rather, he missed both free tosses. Taurean Prince came swarming in for the hostile board, however missed on the subsequent endeavor.

Irving did everything he could — scoring the last nine in the fourth, yet the Nets just didn't execute when they expected to.

The Nets trailed by upwards of 18 in the main half with Irving and Caris LeVert (20) taking care of a large portion of the work, maybe a lot of it. Sovereign was held scoreless in first half, as was Joe Harris who hadn't endeavored a three by then.

At that point, they hopped out on a 15-2 rushed to begin the subsequent half, taking an important lead at that point expanding it to eight as the final quarter went along. It was a no-look go from Kyrie Irving to Joe Harris for his initial three of the night.

They were up 98-90, yet dedicated more turnovers in the primary couple of minutes of the fourth (seven) than they did through the initial seventy five percent (six), along these lines prompting a 11-2 keep running for Minnesota.

The rest was history. The Nets are 0-1 to begin the season and just couldn't completely beat Minnesota's 68-point first half.

Ruler scored each of the 15 of his focuses in the second from last quarter, while Spencer Dinwiddie and Harris contributed 14 each. Dinwiddie battled, however, with five turnovers on the night.

Eventually, Brooklyn's poor protection and messy play permitted Minnesota once more into the game in the final quarter. They submitted only six turnovers the initial three quarter and afterward dedicated 10 aggregate in the fourth and additional time.

It was enjoyable. It was a great idea to be back, yet a misfortune is a misfortune and this was one the Nets should've had.

HOMECOMING

Kyrie Irving tended to Nets fans before the game and halted abruptly, saying: "Man, it's simply hitting me now."

In spite of 50-Point Debut, Brooklyn Nets Still Adjusting To Kyrie Irving Era. A sellout horde of towel-waving fans at Barclays Center thundered, many reciting "MVP" as free specialist marking Kyrie Irving went off for 50, the most scored for any player in a presentation for his group in NBA history. However, in the last belonging in extra time, Irving slipped as he was attempting to make a move towards the crate, got up and missed what might have been the game-winning shot as the Brooklyn Nets fell ti the Minnesota Timberwolves 127-126 in Wednesday's season opener.

A passionate Irving talked directly before tip-off and needed to take a breather to pull it together, taking in a minute he's been sitting tight for his whole vocation, to play for the group and generally the players he needs.

"It was eight years simply being in better places, encountering various things in the NBA," Irving said after the game. "A great deal of high points and low points, just to result in these present circumstances minute today to be with my family and to be here with, above all, my colleagues. It simply hit me already, before the game. I wasn't attempting to get excessively enthusiastic or anything like that. Be that as it may, I'm only a Jersey child playing for his home group. There's not at all like it."

There's likewise in no way like reps in live customary season games, something these new-look Nets needed. Also, it appeared in the primary half. Minnesota scored 68 and Brooklyn played with no beat, stream, union upsettingly. A great deal of assets looked untidy, messy and disconnected.

"Extremely, this game was lost in the main half, to me," Nets lead trainer Kenny Atkinson said. "I'm frustrated we made such a major gap for us. In the principal half, we were totally out of adjust."

Starters Joe Harris and Taurean Prince were both scoreless at halftime, with the 3-point shooting dynamo Harris not in any event, endeavoring a triple.

"Man, this isn't our group," Atkinson thought of the Nets' first half presentation.

Down 12 at the break, Atkinson beseeched his group to move the ball and get in musicality, and it worked. Players not named Irving and Caris LeVert, who completed with 20, got included and the Nets outscored the Wolves 37-20 in the second from last quarter. Up eight in the fourth, Brooklyn couldn't finish off and had no response for Karl-Anthony Towns, who completed with 36 points and 14 bounce back.

"We missed a few assignments this evening," Irving said. "We simply need to make sense of an approach to make changes as a group. That 50 just goes into a couple of various numbers. It holds esteem, however not so much when you don't get the success."

The buzz encompassing the group had developed to today around evening time. The energy around the field was substantial, the main game where Joe Tsai was the essential partner in both the group and Barclays Center. He was in participation, as were famous people like Chris Bosh and Lil' Kim. The group got into it as the game advanced, a vitality and an air that appeared to be incredible a year back.

"They simply appreciate when you play hard and you commit yourself on the two parts of the bargains and you're making the correct plays," Irving said. "They appreciate fervor, as well. So we need to give them a show and engage, yet toward the day's end it's tied in with winning ballgames and executing down the stretch."

Brooklyn didn't execute down the stretch. Jarrett Allen, who couldn't deal with Towns protectively (however, who in the NBA can?), missed two vital free tosses that would've won in guideline. What's more, Irving faltered in OT on the most pivotal belonging.

"Some way or another I got it back, I simply needed to get my elbow pointed at the edge and I had a superior possibility of making it. Just gotta take care of the elbow a tad," Irving stated, talking about the mechanics of his reeling shot that would have broken the web had it fallen. "At the point when you lose your parity like that, you simply need to get your orientation incredibly rapidly."

Obviously, it's every one of the one game and Brooklyn indicated flashes of the fiery, ball-moving, three-depleting, protectively solid group that was so enjoyable to watch last season.

"Our activity here is to give him support," Atkinson said before the game.

The test going ahead will be to deal with the desires—the fans in the seats, the cameras, the new backers, the upgraded media consideration—that accompany marking whiz players like Irving and Kevin Durant.

The test going ahead will be to deal with the desires—the fans in the seats, the cameras, the new supporters, the improved media consideration—that accompany marking genius players like Irving and Kevin Durant.

That upgraded consideration will develop on Friday when Brooklyn has the opponent Knicks, a game the Nets are required to win.

"We need game reps. We gotta get game reps," Atkinson said. "This makes a difference. We'll take a gander at it, we'll push ahead."

In one of the more out of control games in Brooklyn in ongoing memory, a noteworthy game in both the littler and bigger picture, the Kyrie Irving Era has authoritatively started.

Kyrie Irving Drops 50 Points In Nets Home Opener On Anniversary Of His Grandfather's Death. When Kyrie Irving's granddad spent a year back on this date, it set into movement a descending winding that inevitably prompted Irving's separation with the Boston Celtics.

"Ball and the delight I had from it was sucked away from me," Irving said at media day. "There was an outward appearance that I bore with me consistently. Didn't enable anybody to draw near to me in that occasion, and it truly disturbed me. I didn't find a way to get advising or get treatment to manage someone that near me kicking the bucket. I've never managed anything like that."

After one year, Irving is in another group in another city and he accomplished some proportion of reclamation – regardless of whether it finished with a misfortune.

On the one-year commemoration of his granddad's passing, Irving went for a 50 points, 8 bounce back, 7 helps and zero turns in the Nets' 127-126 home misfortune to the Minnesota Timberwolves. It was the most noteworthy scoring yield ever by a Net in a home opener and the fifth-most elevated scoring aggregate in Nets history. Deron Williams holds the establishment record with 57.

"The activity wasn't done so 50 just goes into another couple of numbers," said Irving, who marked a four-year, $141-million arrangement with the Nets in free office. "It holds esteem however not so much when you don't get a success."

Irving, the previous St. Patrick's High School star who grew up longing for playing for the home-state New Jersey Nets, missed a potential game-victor in the last seconds when he lost his balance and missed a 15-foot bounce that that would've made him a superhuman on this night.

"Just gotta take care of the elbow a smidgen," he said. "At the point when you lose equalization like that you attempt to get your parity outrageously rapidly. Simply losing my parity had a major effect in that."

Concerning pouring in 50 on the commemoration of his granddad's demise, Irving said he felt his granddad's essence with him.

"I simply needed to settle on a decision," he said. "Simply coming into the storage space, my colleagues were very much aware of it, the vast majority were. I simply needed to settle on a decision just to be glad out there. My granddad would just like it as such for me. He was my greatest fan when he was in Washington. He was unquestionably in there today around evening time. I felt him and I realize he will be with me on this entire whole adventure this season."

Interim, Irving's new partners set aside effort to kick back and watch his enchantment.

"It's stunning to watch," Jarrett Allen told correspondents. "He can do nearly anything with the ball. He can hit practically any shot, so it's simply stunning to watch. I'm prepared to set screens for him on the off chance that he goes off that way."

The Nets will be Irving's group this season as they are relied upon to be without Kevin Durant while he recoups from Achilles medical procedure.

They figure to be in the season finisher blend in an Eastern Conference that just has two or three end of the season games lock – the Milwaukee Bucks, Philadelphia 76ers and ruling NBA champion Toronto Raptors.

Until further notice, he's glad to lead the group he was an aficionado of as a youngster, before he went to Montclair Kimberley Academy and afterward St. Pat's and after that Duke.

"Only a Jersey child playing for his home group," he said. "It's not at all like it. This has been fermenting since I was in fourth grade. I didn't know realize it would occur now or at this age however it's here and I simply need to exploit it and simply be cheerful and simply have a feeling of appreciation each time I step on the floor and wear that Nets uniform."

Next the Nets will get an opportunity to even their record at 1-1 when they have the opponent Knicks on Friday. New York lost its season-opener at the San Antonio Spurs regardless of 25 from Marcus Morris and 21 from new kid on the block R.J. Barrett.

In the East, Irving and the Nets seem to have a superior shot at the postseason than the opponent Knicks. In any case, Friday will allow Irving another opportunity to wow the group at Barclays Center. Also, it will maybe be a fairly less passionate night for him by and by.

"We'll thump them down, we'll simply continue being forceful yet none of that stuff matters except if you get a success," he said. "The race is to get the same number of wins as you can in a 82-game range and set yourself in a place down the stretch. We have 81 more to go and we'll simply take it step by step."
