Kyrie Irving scores 41 at halftime in Orlando
© Provided by HoopsHype Alex Schiffer: Halftime: Nets lead the Magic 86-56. Kyrie Irving is putting on a clinic. He’s got 41 points on 14-for-19 shooting. Next-highest Net has 10. Franchise-record for points in a half. Speaking of those, I think it’s the swan song for Deron Williams’ 57-point franchise record.

Wilt had 41 at halftime of his 100-point game.

Kyrie at halftime tonight: 41.

I’m just saying.

Incidentally, the NBA record for first-half points: 53, by David Thompson and George Gervin, both on April 9, 1978 as they chased the scoring record on that season’s final day. – 8:13 PM David Hardisty @clutchfans

Kyrie Irving has 41 points on 14-19 shooting (6-7 3P) in the first half.

Again, his decision to not get vaccinated bumped the Rockets up 10 spots in the Draft. – 8:13 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

HALF: Nets 86, Magic 56

Kyrie Irving (39 PTS), Kevin Durant (10 PTS) & the Nets are dismantling the Magic. Irving is GOING OFF & as the Orlando defense adjusts to him to try and slow him down, the spacing for the rest of the team continues to open up. They only have 2 TO’s too. – 8:12 PM KJ Martin @kj__martin

Kyrie Irving has 39 points with 2:40 left in the second quarter. – 8:07 PM

Kyrie Irving’s having such a special game that @Grady is calling him ‘CashApp.’

Irving has 39 points on 14/17 FG, 6/7 3PT and 5/5 FT. There’s still 2 minutes to go in the 2nd quarter. #NetsWorld – 8:07 PM Chuck Cooperstein @coopmavs

Is Kyrie going after Wilt? He’s got 39 with 2:24 remaining in the half in Orlando. Looks like he’s blowing it all out tonight since he can’t play tomorrow vs Mavs – 8:07 PM Cody Taylor @CodyTaylorNBA

Kyrie Irving is up to 39 points now, the most by a Nets player in a first half since stats by half were first tracked (1996-97). – 8:06 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

Sigh. It sucks that Barclays Center has yet to witness Kyrie Irving this season. – 8:06 PM StatMuse @statmuse

Most points in a half this season:

36 — Karl-Anthony Towns yesterday

Kyrie with a massive “hold my beer” game on the heels of KAT dropping 60. – 8:02 PM Dane Moore @DaneMooreNBA

KAT’s NBA season-high of 60 might not last 24 hours. Kyrie has 27 in 15 minutes already. – 7:53 PM Evan Dunlap @BQRMagic

anyway, if you’re wondering: the record for points scored against the Magic in a first half is 36, set by James Harden and Allen Iverson. Kyrie Irving is at 27 (10/13 FGs) with 7:56 to play. – 7:53 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

Kyrie Irving, who has 16 points in the first quarter, just had his left thumb evaluated on the bench. He has it taped up now. – 7:36 PM

Kyrie Irving is on the bench looking at his left hand and getting his thumb taped. He was looking at it going down the court on a layup attempt earlier tonight. – 7:36 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Kyrie is on the bench getting his left hand looked at. He keeps trying to loosen it up. He’s in a little discomfort — but it looks like he’ll stay in the game for now — with some new tape around his thumb. – 7:35 PM Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo

Kyrie Irving is must-see television every night. – 7:30 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Kyrie rolling in Orlando early. He’s already got 11 points and is 4-for-4 from the field. He’s getting anything he wants — and so are the Nets.

If the NYC vax mandate stays in place — Kyrie only can play in three of the Nets’ final 13 games. – 7:22 PM Khobi Price @khobi_price

Kyrie’s cooking tonight: 11 points on 4-of-4 shooting.

Goran Dragic will start in place of Seth Curry (ankle) alongside Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, Bruce Brown and Andre Drummond tonight against the Orlando Magic. Interesting decision by Steve Nash to start Dragic over Patty Mills. – 6:31 PM Barbara Barker @meanbarb

Kyrie has company. Unvaccinated Mets and Yankees ineligible to play in home games

The same private sector mandate keeping the Nets’ Irving sidelined applies to Mets and Yankees.… – 5:57 PM Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill

The NYC mandate is inconsistent and makes no sense. But if there’s one person consistent with inconsistency, it’s Kyrie Irving.… – 4:43 PM Ethan Strauss @SherwoodStrauss

NEW POST: Kyrie the Bartleby (Upsides of not following the plan and making people crazy)… – 4:32 PM Sopan Deb @SopanDeb

The one thing about Kyrie Irving which continues to vex me. and I haven’t been able to get an answer from NYC City Hall on this. Why is he allowed to practice at the Nets facility? Why wouldn’t the private sector mandate apply there? – 3:05 PM Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN

Spoke to a City Hall spokesperson and the Yankees and Mets fall under the same private sector mandate as Kyrie Irving and the Nets. No difference because it’s an outdoor sport. Spokesperson cautioned that things could change by Opening Day.

Story posted shortly – 2:45 PM Brian Windhorst @WindhorstESPN

March 5 – LeBron James

March 6 – Jayson Tatum

March 8 – Kyrie Irving

March 11 – LeBron James

March 13 – Kevin Durant

March 14 – Karl-Anthony Towns

That’s already one shy of the most ever in March.

There are 17 days left in March. – 10:39 PM

More on this storyline

Tim Reynolds: Most points in a first half, last 25 years: 42 — Kobe Bryant, 3/28/03 41 — Kyrie Irving, tonight 40 — Klay Thompson, 12/5/16 39 — Zach LaVine, 4/9/21 -via Twitter @ByTimReynolds / March 15, 2022 It was not all doom and gloom for the Lakers, with James recording his 10,000th assist in the NBA, becoming the first player in league history with 30,000 points, 10,000 rebounds and 10,000 assists. But unfortunately for James there was little time to dwell on the achievement, instead forced to try and find a way to inspire the struggling Lakers back to life. -via / March 14, 2022 James set the mark by passing the ball to Carmelo Anthony for a 3-pointer early in the second quarter, notching his second assist of the game and 10,000th of his career. “I get lost for words anytime things like this are happening to me because of where I come from,” he said. “I automatically start thinking to my hometown of Akron [Ohio] and my upbringing and where I come from and the dreams that I had of being in this league and playing at the highest level.” -via ESPN / March 14, 2022
