For his 60 points in 35 minutes, Irving needed only 31 litters (20 hits), and the 29-year-old turned eight of his twelve threes and twelve of his 13 free throws. It is the second 60-point game of this season, the other had only launched the day before Karl-Anthony Towns (Minnesota Timberwolfes) against the San Antonio Spurs.

Already at the break Stand Irving at 41 meters, the last with more after 24 minutes Kobe Bryant was in March 2003 against Washington Wizards. Irving was simply hot, hardly anything was forced. “It was a game in pure form,” was also Kyrie himself. “We were efficient on both sides of the field and won the game.”

In the end, it could have been even more points for Irving, ultimately the game was too one-sided. 8:33 minutes before the end Kyrie sank his eighth threesome of the game, after which time was work for the man of the day. The Shotchart looked like a video game, 13 of the 20 Field Goals scored Irving outside the zone and made only six failing attempts there.

“If one runs so hot, then just nothing wrong,” also knew Center Andre Drummond and so it was a loose success for the Nets. Even at the break, the lead was 30 meters, in the meantime it was even 44. Irving broke in addition to the franchise record of Deron Williams (57) from the year 2012, also for Irving personally it was a new best value. In March 2015, Kyrie was still in the jersey of Cleveland Cavaliers at an OT game in San Antonio 57 points.

Magic coach Jahmal Mosley was also impressed. “Sometimes he just thrown over two people. We tried to put him under pressure, but is clever enough to understand when he can throw and when not.” So it did not need Kevin Durant this evening, which spent a cozy 19 points (6/9 FG, 7/8 Ft, 7 Assists) in 30 minutes. Patty Mills (15) met from the bench coming five of his seven threesome, backup centers Nicolas Claxton put on a double double.

The Nets met 60 percent from the field – and also from the triple line (16/27), which hosts had to settle with 38 percent. Cole Anthony was with 19 points and 7 assists of the best scorer, Franz Wagner (16, 5/13, 2 assists) sank his two distant powers. Moritz Wagner (17, 7/15, 11 rebounds) posted from the bench coming a double double.

The residue for the Nets in six place is still 3.5 games, it threatens the play-in-tournament. Irving did not want to know about it and succeeded accordingly: “This evening has shown all that we are on the way to enter the history books.”
