Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving note the “reckless” fouls from the Bucks… – 12:40 AM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Global Tech News Daily

“He’s impacted so many lives…. He’s more than just a coach to me and to countless others. He recruited me when I was 16, 17 years old, I thought the guy was brilliant but I thought he was a little crazy.”

-Kyrie Irving talks about Coach K’s Duke legacy – 11:23 PM

Global Tech News Daily

Dave Early @DavidEarly

Kyrie Irving on the Bucks being “reckless.”

“That’s who they are but I just think it was just reckless sometimes.”

He had a similar comment back in Jan. about how he got hurt in last years playoffs.

Kyrie Irving praises Coach K for impacting so many lives throughout his career. – 11:01 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kyrie Irving is looking forward to Duke-UNC this weekend. Thinks the Blue Devils are going into the game with a “redemptive” attitude, but doesn’t think Coach K’s legacy lies on the game. – 11:01 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Kyrie Irving describes the Bucks reckless plays as being in the way at times when it’s an easy play to avoid. Didn’t want to get into individual plays but says we can all observe. – 11:00 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

“It’s an easy play to avoid.”

Kyrie Irving believes that it is an ongoing process to prepare for the playoffs. – 10:59 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Kyrie Irving says he thinks some of the Bucks fouls were reckless. Adds not all but some. He understands that’s part of who their team is but some were reckless. – 10:58 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

“I think one of the stats that really stands out are the free throws — That’s one thing we can control better.” – 10:57 PM Matt Williams @StatsWilliams

lost in the Giannis vs. Durant infinity war: Jrue had Kyrie mandated that entire 4th & overtime. – 10:23 PM Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix

Be interesting to see how the top teams maneuver in the final week. That third seed feels like the most desirable place to be. Who wants to potentially battle KD and Kyrie in the first round? – 10:19 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Final: Bucks beat the Nets 120-119. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving combine for 51 with each playing 45 minutes. Nets are now in three-way tie for eight seed and head to ATL on Saturday in a game that could determine where they end up. Hawks tied with them. Coverage coming. – 10:17 PM Tommy Beer @TommyBeer

Did Kyrie take a shot in the final 10 mins off that game? – 10:17 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

FINAL OT: Nets 119, Bucks 120

Kevin Durant (26 PTS, 11 ASTS), Kyrie Irving (25 PTS), Bruce Brown (23 PTS) & the Nets tap into lose a game that went all the way down to the wire. The Nets took 8 more shots than the Bucks, but they couldn’t capitalize. – 10:16 PM Tommy Beer @TommyBeer

There are like two human beings on earth who can sorta bother KD and Kyrie when they have the ball on offense – and they are both on the Bucks (Giannis and Jrue) – 10:09 PM Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA

This playcalling by the Nets has been truly atrocious. How about trying to get Kyrie a matchup for instance? – 10:04 PM Chris Kirschner @ChrisKirschner

KD and Kyrie will both play 40+ minutes tonight.

Nets in Atlanta Saturday night. – 10:01 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

FINAL: Nets 110, Bucks 110

Kyrie Irving (25 PTS), Bruce Brown (21 PTS), Kevin Durant (20 PTS, 11 ASTS) & the Nets are putting on 1 of their BEST performances of the year. Giannis Antetokounmpo (42 PTS, 11 REBS) is GOING OFF, but he’s the ONLY Milwaukee player shooting over 50%. – 10:00 PM Michael Pina @MichaelVPina

the nets surrounded kd with kyrie, curry, mills and dragic, and that’s the shot they got? – 9:59 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Giannis hits an unbelievable three to tie the game — KD misses a jumper after Giannis come over to double. We are headed to overtime tied at 110. Giannis has 42 and 14. KD and Kyrie have combined for 45 — they are both at the 40 minute mark. – 9:59 PM Adam Mares @Adam_Mares

KD and Kyrie are fun as hell. That KD pull up 3 was ridiculous. So smooth. – 9:38 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kyrie Irving lob to Kevin Durant. Nets lead the Bucks 106-99. BK on a 9-2 run since Middleton got tossed. – 9:37 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Kevin Durant just hit the same shot he hit against the Bucks to send Game 7 into OT. Only this time it’s a 3. Then the Nets force a turnover, and Kyrie finds KD for an alley-oop.

Nets lead 108-99 with 3:52 to go in the 4th quarter. – 9:37 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

End of the third quarter: Bucks lead the Nets 87-86. KD with 13, Brown with 17 and Kyrie with 20. Khris Middleton and Jrue Holiday are a combined 7-for-20, but the Nets have yet to find a way to slow down this Giannis fella. – 9:11 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

End of 3rd QTR: Nets 86, Bucks 87

Kyrie Irving (20 PTS), Bruce Brown (17 PTS) & the Nets are losing the battle on the boards 29-38. Fortunately, they’re putting on a show from behind the arc, shooting it at 54%. Defensively, they’re holding Milwaukee to 28% shooting from there. – 9:11 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

After a 3-for-10 start, Kyrie Irving has hit his last three shots. Nets lead 78-74. – 9:00 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Giannis just slid in Kyrie Irving’s way attempting to take a charge. There’s a take foul, and then there’s that. – 8:59 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Nets lead the Bucks 73-68. Kyrie Irving with a 3 off a Patty Mills steal. Brooklyn has been scrappy tonight. Bruce Brown with three corner 3s. – 8:52 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

HALF: Nets 60, Bucks 56

Bruce Brown (10 PTS), Kyrie Irving (9 PTS) & the Nets are allowing Giannis Antetokounmpo to gain momentum. He’s already up to 20 PTS on 8-of-11 shooting. Overall, Brooklyn is getting outscored in the interior 26-16. – 8:28 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Halftime: Nets lead the Bucks 60-56. Good game so far. Kevin Durant with seven points, seven assists and five rebounds. Bruce Brown with 10 and some great defense. Kyrie Irving has been well-guarded by Jrue Holiday. Just 3-for-10. Bucks +10 in the paint. – 8:27 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Weird looking switch there w/Kyrie & JJ leaves Kessler Edwards on an island with Giannis. And-one dunk. – 8:02 PM Barbara Barker @meanbarb

Kyrie Irving hits first bucket of game to give Nets 32-23 lead. – 8:00 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Solid first quarter for Nets — they got balanced scoring up and down roster and are playing strong defense to start. Already up to nine assists as well. Even more impressive given that Kyrie is 0-for-4 in 10 minutes. – 7:57 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Nets lead, 30-23, after one quarter. Lots of basketball to go, but impressive start for the Nets considering 0 points from Kyrie. – 7:56 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Bucks have capitalized on some Nets turnovers. Bruce Brown bobbled a steal right into Pat Connaughton’s hands for a layup. KD lob to Drum ended up with a Wes Matthews corner 3. Kyrie didn’t see a pass coming, ends with a Khris Middleton 3. Milwaukee leads 21-19. – 7:49 PM Anthony Puccio @APOOCH

Greetings from Barclays. Nets-Bucks about to tip. Last time they played, Kyrie led the Nets to a win over them in Milwaukee. Last contender on the regular season schedule for the Nets. A measuring stick game of sorts. Updates to come. – 7:28 PM Barbara Barker @meanbarb

Stefan Bondy: Kyrie Irving on the Bucks: “They were playing pretty physical. I think they were a little reckless at times. Just on a lot of their fouls. Or a few of their fouls. That’s who they are. But I think it was just reckless at times.” -via Twitter @SBondyNYDN / April 1, 2022 Will Guillory: The NBA’s L2M Report determined that there wasn’t a foul on Jose Alvarado’s final shot in last night’s loss to the Spurs. It did come back with 2 incorrect non-calls, though — one on the Pels, one on the Spurs. -via Twitter @WillGuillory / March 27, 2022 James Edwards III: Casey on Cade Cunningham’s lack of free throws: “He’ll earn it. He’s getting hit. Maybe he has to get an act. … I see guys falling like they got hit with a baseball bat.” -via Twitter @JLEdwardsIII / March 27, 2022
