HALFTIME: Nets 62, Knicks 60

Kyrie Irving is in the building and is now walking on the court, baseline with his teammates into the locker room. There are #FreeKyrie chants at Barclays Center.

At this point the mandates are foolish. He is here & on the court. Why can’t he play? – 2:14 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Halftime: Nets lead the Knicks 62-60. Kevin Durant already has 27. Brooklyn is low on shooters with no Curry, Irving, Aldridge and Harris. Drummond has 13 down low. Goran Dragic is the only Net not named KD to hit a 3 so far. – 2:13 PM Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney

Kyrie’s trip to his seats maybe the second-biggest mid-game entrance in Nets’ Barclays history, behind Prince William and Kate showing up in the third quarter to see LeBron and the Cavs in 2014. – 2:10 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Also strange — they just showed Kyrie on the video board — and there didn’t seem to be much of a response. There were some cheers, and Kyrie touched his heart and seemed appreciative — but you would figure the crowd would have gone wild. That did not happen. – 2:10 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

The WiFi at Barclays Center is poor, so my video won’t load. Kyrie walked from opposite-side tunnel, through the left side of the crowd. He dapped up several people standing on the court, then took his courtside seats.

Vax mandate allows Irving to sit 2 ft away, but not play. – 2:09 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Scattered applause when the Barclays Center screen shows Kyrie Irving in the building for the first time this season. #nets – 2:07 PM

Such a strange scene — Cameras following Kyrie everywhere as he talks to some people sitting courtside — while his team is playing a game a few feet in front of him. – 2:07 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Kyrie has entered Barclays. A few “Free Kyrie!” chants have started as he makes his way to his courtside seat. He is sitting right across from the Nets bench. – 2:00 PM Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN

Kyrie Irving has arrived at Barclays Center fashionably late. – 2:00 PM Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney

Do a ‘Who’s In The House’ for Kyrie @barclayscenter – 1:47 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

End of the first quarter: Nets lead the Knicks 35-30. Kevin Durant has 16 points. Brooklyn has eight assists on 13 field goals. Good ball movement so far. No sign of Kyrie Irving yet. – 1:39 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Wonder if Kyrie is checking out the Crown Club before he makes his way to his seats. – 1:30 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Someone tell Kyrie to wear his jersey and shorts to the game today. – 1:30 PM John Hollinger @johnhollinger

“MVP” chants in the building, so maybe Kyrie brought Jokic with him. – 1:14 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Hypothetical: If Kyrie Irving were to walk across the court from is courtside seats and join in the huddle, what happens? Can he do that and just walk back to his seats? Does security have to stop him when the Nets wouldn’t have a problem with it? – 1:11 PM Malika Andrews @malika_andrews

As reported on ABC: Kyrie Irving is expected to be in Barclays Center today but he will not be on the bench with the team. He will be sitting in his purchased, courtside seats. – 1:07 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Greetings from Barclays. Nets-Knicks tip shortly. Currently trying to find Kyrie as if he’s Waldo. This will mark his first Nets game of the season…as a fan. On the court, BK is going for its third straight win. With Magic & Blazers this week, the runway is there for some wins. – 12:59 PM Bobby Marks @BobbyMarks42

The Kyrie Irving situation is certainly the center of attention.

Here’s one ? I don’t understand

Why is Irving allowed to attend work (and practice) at the Nets practice facility that is located in Brooklyn but not play home games that are also located in Brooklyn? – 12:58 PM Anthony Puccio @APOOCH

Nets neeeeeed to show Kyrie on the Jumbotron today – 12:58 PM Barbara Barker @meanbarb

Kyrie is going to be somewhere in Barclay’s today, even though he can’t play. Taking bets on where he will sit. Courtside? Behind the basket? Luxury suite? Press box? OK, it won’t be the press box. – 12:56 PM Kurt Helin @basketballtalk

Kyrie Irving will sit courtside, maskless, to watch Nets game Sunday he can’t play in… – 12:47 PM The Vertical @YahooSportsNBA

Kyrie Irving is expected to attend today’s Nets game at the Barclay Center as a spectator, per @Shams Charania. – 12:40 PM

I’m neither a virus expert nor familiar w/ the mayor’s/city’s thinking, but I imagine the logic behind the Kyrie can’t play/can watch thing starts w/ this: You’re more likely to get compliance by threatening a person’s job than threatening their ability to go out. – 12:28 PM Micah Adams @MicahAdams13

Don’t let a senseless NYC rule distract you from the fact that Kyrie Irving willingly chose and continues to choose this path.

It’s a dumb rule.

But Kyrie isn’t a victim or martyr here either. – 12:21 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

“His conditioning has improved.”

⁃Steve Nash on Kyrie Irving. – 11:25 AM Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney

Steve Nash says he hasn’t seen Kyrie Irving yet but expects him at Barclays Center today. Can watch game against Knicks but can’t play in it. – 11:24 AM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

Steve Nash admits Kyrie Irving is irreplaceable. – 11:23 AM Ian Begley @IanBegley

Steve Nash says he expects Kyrie Irving to be at Barclays Center in the stands today for Knicks-Nets. Due to his vaccination status and NYC’s vaccine mandates, Irving can’t play on the court today but he can watch the game as a spectator. – 11:22 AM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Nash says he believes Kyrie will be here today at Barclays to watch the game. – 11:21 AM Shams Charania @ShamsCharania

Brooklyn’s Kyrie Irving is expected to sit courtside to support teammates at Nets-Knicks on Sunday afternoon at Barclays Center.

Irving is able to attend the game as a spectator, move freely, maskless … but cannot play due to private sector mandate. – 11:21 AM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Steve Nash believes Kyrie Irving is coming to Barclays (for what would be his first appearance as a spectator) isn’t sure if he’s here yet. Doesn’t want to wade into the situation with an opinion. – 11:21 AM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Steve Nash said he hasn’t seen Kyrie Irving today, but expects him to be in the building as the new rules allow him into Barclays Center, but not on the court. – 11:21 AM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

“I’m just going to stay out of it.”

⁃Steve Nash on Kyrie Irving not being allowed to play at Barclays Center. – 11:20 AM Krishna Narsu @knarsu3

Toronto passing Cleveland would be big for the Nets since they wouldn’t have to travel to Toronto for the play-in and not have Kyrie in that game. Instead would face Cleveland with Kyrie. – 11:39 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

Just like us all, Andre Drummond still doesn’t understand why Kyrie Irving can’t play home games.

Andre Drummond: “MAKE IT MAKE SENSE…”

© Provided by HoopsHype Michael Lee @MrMichaelLee It wouldn’t be too complicated if Kyrie Irving had just gotten the vaccine but you really can’t make sense of a policy that allows him to sit in the stands to watch a college basketball game but prohibits him from playing a NBA game in the same building. – 9:02 PM

Kyrie is sitting inside Barclays for the Duke game but can’t play there tomorrow against the Knicks. Makes perfect sense. – 8:46 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Under the current vaccine mandate, Kyrie Irving is only eligible for 4 of the Nets’ last 15 games. They won 2 out of 3 with him. It’s time to find out what they are without him. For ⁦@NYDNSports⁩… – 8:03 PM Sirius XM NBA @SiriusXMNBA

Why are the @Brooklyn Nets so dangerous in the post-season?

@adaniels33 tells @Rick Kamla it’s because of performances like Kyrie Irving this past Tuesday night

#NetsWorld – 5:45 PM Anthony Puccio @APOOCH

No surprise, but Kyrie Irving is out against the Knicks tomorrow. He’ll be allowed to sit on the bench and watch, though. – 3:04 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

No LaMarcus Aldridge (hip), Ben Simmons (back) or Kyrie Irving (ineligible) tomorrow against the Knicks. – 3:02 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Per Nets PR:

Status Report for Knicks game:

Aldridge (right hip impingement) – OUT

Duke Jr. (left ankle sprain) – OUT

Harris (left ankle surgery) – OUT

Simmons (return to competition reconditioning/back soreness) – OUT

Irving – OUT – 3:01 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Nets status report against the Knicks tomorrow: Aldridge (right hip impingement) – OUT

Duke Jr. (left ankle sprain) – OUT

Harris (left ankle surgery) – OUT

Simmons (return to competition reconditioning/back soreness) – OUT

Irving – OUT – 3:01 PM Justin Kubatko @jkubatko

📅 On this day in 2015, the @Cleveland Cavaliers Kyrie Irving scored a career-high and franchise-record 57 points in a win over the Spurs.

Irving shot 7-7 on 3P and 10-10 on FT. He and Steve Smith are the only players in NBA history to make at least five 3P and 10 FT in a game without a miss. – 2:31 PM
