Video: Nets’ Kyrie Irving counts and points on every Timberwolves defender after a tough finish
In a fastbreak opportunity Irving decided to take the ball to the rack for a tough finish despite being outnumbered by the Timberwolves. Three Wolves got up and tried to block the shot, but Irving was just too quick and crafty.
After the play, Kyrie amusingly counted and pointed at the three defenders, who stumbled under the basket.

Nets fans will be getting a lot of plays like this from their new star guard. Irving is known as one of the most potent scorers in the league, and he has proven he can score under any circumstance and on any defender.
Irving’s transfer to the Nets means that he’s still aggressively gunning for another title. His stint with the Boston Celtics didn’t pan out as expected. With a new team, he’s hoping to return to the NBA Finals with fellow superstar Kevin Durant and a Brooklyn squad filled with excellent role players.
Time will only tell if this will breed relative success. But in his first game donning the Nets jersey, Irving definitely made a strong impact. He made sure that the home fans got an awesome basketball treat.
