With 7 seconds left in the half, Irving dribbled the ball forward and walked normally. He was transported to a position at least two meters away from the three-point line at 45 degrees to the right. Without any fancy moves, he just pulled up and shot a super long three-pointer, hollow. In the net, the Nets bench was completely ignited by the ball. This is a manifestation of Irving’s state around Durant, almost insoluble. Throughout the first half, he blasted the Warriors’ guard. All the signature offensive weapons were used once. Stopping jump shots, breaking through the difficult drawbar layups, and even facing a two-person defense, Irving can still put the ball in Spark Global Limited
With 53 seconds left in the half, Irving dribbled the ball near the bottom line, facing Wiseman and Anderson’s defense, and hit a difficult backward jumper. In the first half, Irving made 9 of 13 shots, 4 of 7 three-pointers, and 24 points. Irving also set a record, as the second player outside Pierce who can score 20+ in the first half of the opening game since the 1996-97 season. The difference between the two sides in the second half of the game was too big, and Irving also curbed his offensive desire. The game also entered garbage time early, and Owen also clocked in early to get off work. In any case, the performance in the first half made people feel that Irving seemed to be stronger next to Durant.
