The Brooklyn Nets hosted the Toronto Raptors on Friday and won 114-105. Kyrie Irving led the team with 27 points in an impressive display of ball-handling and shot-making.
Kevin Durant (17 points) took a backseat in this game as he allowed Irving and Joe Harris (17 points) were hot shooting the ball in the early going. TJ Warren played his first NBA game in 703 days and he looked confident scoring his 10 points.
The story of this game was that the Nets stormed out to a 41-17 lead in the first quarter and never looked back. The Raptors gave the Nets a scare in the fourth quarter as they mounted a furious comeback, but the Nets made just enough shots to finish out the game.
