VIDEO: Nets star Kyrie Irving shows DeAndre Jordan connection with crazy alley-oop
The Brooklyn Nets duo of Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan wanted to put on a show for the fans during Tuesday’s matchup against the San Antonio Spurs. They did exactly that with this eyebrow-raising alley-oop play that should be a shoo-in as one of the best plays of the day.
Irving pulled out a sick fake before throwing a pinpoint lob bass to Jordan who did what he usually does best (h/t ClutchPoints on Twitter):

For a second there it felt like it was Chris Paul throwing the oop pass to DeAndre from their Lob City days with the Los Angeles Clippers. Irving isn’t a bad passer himself, so this is something we should expect to see more from this pair throughout the season.
Then again, Jordan is no longer the high-flyer he once was. It’s been many years since his high-flying antics in L.A., and at 33, the veteran big man has lost a bit of his athleticism. Nevertheless, he can still throw it down every once in a while, and this recent play serves as a testament to this fact.
The Nets come into this one following a 115-98 loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday. That was just their first loss after eight consecutive wins, and they will hope to get back to winning ways against San Antonio on Tuesday.
