Kyrie Irvingbase of the Brooklyn Netsassured that as he can only “play away from home, better give everything”after scoring 60 points in the win 150-108 of his team on the field of the Orlando Magic.
“When you’re a kid, scoring a lot is something important to you, but when you play in the best league in the world, doing it against the best players in the game means something else,” Irving said at the post-match press conference in Orlando.
“My competitiveness emerges, and I am grateful to my teammates. Since I can only play away, it is better to give everything”added the point guard, who improved his previous point record (57, in 2015).
Irving acknowledged that this wonderful performance was not among his goals, but rather happened during the match.
“Maybe I didn’t have to take some shots, tough shots, with a lot of defenders on me, but I did it with a smile and my teammates weren’t too upset.. The night flowed like this. I am happy because my (60) points did not come in a lost game, but won”, he said.
