So my understanding is the city will lift its public mandate barring a change this week, but it’s private sector one remains unchanged. The private one is the mandate that impacts Kyrie Irving. – 5:28 PM Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN

Global Tech News Daily

Reported here why lifting mandate doesn’t necessarily mean Kyrie Irving can play at home. There’s a different mandate for employees who come to their workplace in NYC nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-edi… – 5:28 PM Shams Charania @ShamsCharania

One question about the Nets beyond KD, Simmons and Kyrie is their supporting cast. It just hasn’t come together like it did last season, but with Curry, Drummond, and good vibes, it’s being answered. As Durant said after the Bucks W: “That’s a Brooklyn Nets win right there.” – 8:25 AM Eurohoops @Eurohoopsnet

Kyrie Irving admits it was emotional for him to prepare for the visit to Milwaukee where he hurt his ankle last season in the playoffs. Says there wasn’t anything personal vs Milwaukee. – 12:06 AM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Kyrie Irving on his first trip to Milwaukee since his Game 4 injury: “It was emotional because its the first time I was back in this building since then.” #Nets – 12:06 AM Barbara Barker @meanbarb

“It was emotional for me to prepare for this game.” Kyrie said referring to the fact this is where he hurt his ankle last year. “There definitely was a weight lifted.” – 12:06 AM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kyrie Irving said it was emotional for him coming back to Fiserv Forum given it was his first game since Game 4 when he got hurt against the Bucks. – 12:06 AM Dave Early @DavidEarly

“We just showed our depth and showed our resilience.”

– Kyrie Irving.

He also gave Bruce Brown some props for playing point. Said when the game got under 6 minutes it came down to conditioning. – 12:05 AM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Nash on Kyrie Irving after the latter had 12 of his 38 points in the 4th qtr: “Incredible shotmaking and carried a big portion of our offense. (He) just allows other guys more space to breathe as well. So, improves the whole team w/ his presence, shotmaking and creativity.” #Nets – 11:59 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

This is why the Nets — despite the ongoing circus in Brooklyn — still have a chance to win it all.

Kyrie finishes with a season high 38 points and gets the Nets a big win on the road. Bad loss for the Bucks. They had chance after chance to close out an undermanned team — and couldn’t do it. Can’t believe how quiet the Milwaukee crowd was down the stretch. – 11:25 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Final: Nets beat the Bucks 126-123. Kyrie Irving was brilliant with 38. Goran Dragić showed how he can help this team and BK has just it’s second win against a top-four seed this year. Coverage coming. Do we see Mr. Durant back on Monday? – 11:22 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kyrie missed a free throw. Bucks will have a chance to tie with 5.6 seconds left down three. – 11:20 PM Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

Kyrie Irving hits another pair of free throws – #Nets up 123-120. – 11:17 PM Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

Kyrie Irving has scored a season-high 35 points and the #Bucks have 8.9 seconds to tie the game. They trail 121-118. – 11:12 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kyrie Irving hits his free throws. Nets up 121-118 with 8.9 seconds left. Timeout Bucks. Curious to see what Bud draws up. This game has been a blast. – 11:12 PM Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

Bobby Portis gets his corner 3 blocked by James Johnson and Drummond hits one of two free throws. Bucks down, 119-116, with 21.7 left.

Irving fouls Allen on a 3 on the other end. Three free throws to tie it. – 11:07 PM Eric Nehm @eric_nehm

Bucks just don’t want to close this one out.

Matthews was not there for a switch on Irving out of the timeout. Holiday just missed two free throws.

And now the Nets lead 115-114 with 2:20 left. – 11:00 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kyrie Irving puts the Nets up 113-112 with a 3. – 10:58 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kyrie Irving now has five 30-point games of the 15 he’s played this season. – 10:54 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Nets down four with 4:03 left. Offense has struggled in the fourth quarter. Kyrie Irving has two of the Nets’ three baskets this quarter. He can’t do it all himself. – 10:52 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

End of the third quarter: Nets lead the Bucks 96-93. Kyrie has 26, Curry has 17 and Brown and Drummond each have 12. Three Bucks’ starters are over 20. Nets have the edge in the paint and on second0chance points. As @MBayler said, the team that plays less sloppy likely wins. – 10:24 PM Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

Kyrie Irving has 24 points and 5 assists as the #Nets have now gone up double digits on the #Bucks – 10:09 PM Jeff Wade @SkinWade

I enjoy watching Kyrie Irving on offense as much as anyone in the league – 10:09 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

The Nets have hung tough all night — now they’re hitting a few shots and have the lead. Kyrie and Seth have combined for 35 points. As bad as all the losing is, it remains scary to think how much more space they’re going to get when KD and Simmons are back on the floor. – 10:03 PM Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill

Kyrie is filth. Filth flarn larn filth. – 9:41 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Halftime: Bucks lead the Nets 59-53. Kyrie Irving has been brilliant. He’s got 17 points on 8-for-13 shooting. Raise your hand if you had Andre Drummond with a team-high three assists. BK continues to struggle from 3. Just 3-for-14. Tough to keep up w/the Bucks if they don’t fall – 9:39 PM Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

#Bucks lead the #Nets 59-53 at the break. Kyrie Irving has 17. Bobby Portis & Giannis Antetokounmpo have 14 apiece and Khris Middleton has 11. – 9:38 PM Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

Kyrie Irving is so much fun to watch – 9:38 PM Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

Kyrie Irving has 13 points to lead the #Nets – Bobby Portis has 14, Giannis Antetokounmpo 12, Khris Middleton 11 for the #Bucks – 9:31 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

End of the first quarter: Bucks lead the Nets 32-25. Bucks led by as many as eight, but Brooklyn came back to tie it late in the quarter. Kyrie leads with seven, while Aldridge has five. Nets start just 1-for-7 from 3. – 9:11 PM Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

#Bucks and #Nets tied up at 23. Giannis Antetokounmpo has taken one shot in the first 10 minutes of action.

Bobby Portis (8) and Serge Ibaka (6) lead Milwaukee in scoring. Kyrie Irving has 7 for Brooklyn. – 9:01 PM Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski

Five points for Kyrie Irving the last two trips down and the #Bucks lead is 16-15. – 8:56 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Show me Kyrie Goran Seth Kessler and LaMarcus on the floor at the same time – 8:54 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Bucks lead the Nets 16-8 with 6:59 left in the first. Nets having Bruce Brown and James Johnson initiate offense to play Kyrie off the ball. But in a non-shooter heavy lineup, that spacing only goes so far. – 8:51 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Kyrie Irving will start tonight alongside Seth Curry, Bruce Brown, James Johnson and Andre Drummond.

It’s the Nets’ 34th starting lineup of the season. Yes, that’s a league-high. – 8:03 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Nets starters in Milwaukee: Irving, Curry, Brown, Johnson and Drummond.

This is Brooklyn’s league-high 34th starting lineup of the season. – 8:01 PM Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
