Nets star Kyrie Irving hits a clutch shot ensure win vs. Rockets

Nets, Kyrie Irving, Rockets

During the Brooklyn Nets’ 123-116 victory over the Houston Rockets, Kyrie Irving converted on a tough pull-up jumper from the corner to ensure his team a victory.

The Nets were facing a 114-108 lead over the Rockets before Irving’s big play. With single-coverage being used by the Rockets, Irving was able to side-step his way into enough space to get off his shot. He put the Nets up by nine points with just 55.8 seconds left to play in the fourth quarter.

There has been no shortage of clutch plays from Irving throughout his NBA career. This is just the latest example of what has been a long list of heartbreaking moments for opposing teams at the hands of “Uncle Drew”. It was much needed for the Nets given that they had posted a 1-3 record prior to this game.
