VIDEO: Nets’ Kyrie Irving flashes his ball skills with nifty layup vs Mavs
Brooklyn Nets superstar Kyrie Irving dazzles again. Irving is known for his great ball handling and wizardry on the offensive end but don’t forget about his layups. He is one of the best players at finishing at the rim. Irving may not be dunking on people but he somehow gets his shot off spectacularly every time he gets in the paint.

The Nets are playing well heading towards the playoffs. With James Harden set to return soon they should be close to full strength come postseason. Kevin Durant and Irving have been holding it down for the Nets with Harden out. It will be interesting to see how quickly the big three gets chemistry as they get ready for a playoff run.
Brooklyn has been battling for the number one seed with the Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks for quite some time. Defensive struggles have been evident over the past few weeks and it is something they need to figure out. While they have all this offensive fire power, it might not be enough in the playoffs if they can’t play defense. Just last week, Giannis Antetokounmpo dropped 49 and 36 point games against them in wins for the Bucks. James Harden doesn’t necessarily help in stopping monster nights such as that, but he at least gives them more firepower to fight back.
Does the big three have enough time to get chemistry? It will be tough, but the talent is undeniable. We know the offense is there for all three individuals but they need to get in sink on the defensive side. Injuries and other time away from the court may be the only thing keeping the Nets from a surefire title.
