Kyrie Irving was in bag of his tricks for two consecutive games but this time giving the Brooklyn Nets a 113-109 win over the New York Knicks behind his familiar sideways three-pointer that rocked the Barclays Center.

Irving finished with 26 points including five straight points in the endgame along with his two rebounds, five assists and three steals.

The Nets was in control in the first three quarters leading by as much as 19 points before Wayne Ellington, former Nets, caught fire from downtown to bring the Knicks back in contention and even took the lead, 107-106.

The two competitor exchanged buckets but it was Irving who came out better after hitting a clutch step-back trey, similar to his Game 7 buckets with the Cavaliers, to put the game away. He was able to bounce back from his first game heartbreak with the Nets, missing the game-winner against Timberwolves despite putting a 50-point performance.

Spencer Dinwiddie backed Irving with 20 points off the bench as Joe Harris and Caris LeVert added 13 and 12 points respectively.

Meanwhile, Alonzo Trier led the visiting Knicks with 20 points while rookie RJ Barret and Kevin Knoxx chipped 16 markers each in a losing effort.

The Nets now have a 1-1 card.

LeBron James drops triple-double in MSG, passes Steve Nash in all-time assists leaders

LeBron James made history once again, and this time he got all the reasons to celebrate as his Los Angeles Lakers got an overtime road win against the New York Knicks, 129-123.

The 38-year old superstar moved up fourth all-time in the assists department, surpassing the great Steve Nash, while dropping a triple-double as well.

James finished with 28 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists with a +22 efficiency.

Along with it, he also inched closer to become the all-time scoring leader as he is now less than a hundred points away from breaking the 39-year record of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.

Supporting LeBron in the dub was Anthony Davis with 27 points, nine rebounds, and two steals.

Rui Hachimura made his presence felt in his second game in Lakers uniform with 19 markers, and nine boards.

Russell Westbrook continued to shine off the bench with 17-6-8 and three steals.

For the Knicks, Jalen Brunson had a night scoring a game-high 37 points, Julius Randle added 23 but it wasn’t enough to take down the purple and gold in overtime.

Next stop for the Lakers is at Indiana while the Knicks remain at home to welcome Miami.
