Kyrie Irving’s 4-word reaction to his 4th quarter takeover for Nets vs. Heat
The Brooklyn Nets haven’t been very successful over the last couple of games, losing back to back contests to the Cleveland Cavaliers. However, Kyrie Irving had something to say about their struggles on court during their Saturday matchup against the Miami Heat.
Kyrie put up 28 points, six rebounds and seven assists on 10-of-17 shooting, including a fourth quarter takeover where he scored 18. When he was asked about his dominant showing after the game, he responded with one of the best four-word answers one can possibly give: “It was winning time”.

The Big 3 of Kyrie Irving, James Harden and Kevin Durant got their first win playing together, and it seems like things are temporarily restored in the basketball world.
While the team is far from the dominant squad that fans expect them to be, getting the W is certainly a step in the right direction as the team figures out the players’ role in the team. Durant top-scored the Nets with 31 points, along with four rebounds, four assists and two blocks.
For his part, Harden delivered a solid performance with 12 points, seven rebounds and 12 assists.
Brooklyn improved to 10-8 with the victory, though it remains to be seen if they can maintain their winning ways moving forward. They play the Heat again on Monday, followed by matches with the Atlanta Hawks and Oklahoma City Thunder.
