Kyrie Irving had a perfect first half against the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.
In 16 minutes, Irving went 10-for-10 from the floor. The six-time All-Star knocked down all four of his three-point attempts, including a buzzer-beater from well beyond the after stealing the ball at half-court to end the first half.
The Nets led Chicago 73-57 at the half, with Irving leading all scorers. He also added three rebounds and one assist.
Friday's game is a big one for the Nets, as the Bulls are just three games behind Brooklyn for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Irving scored 20 points on Tuesday, his first game back following sitting out Sunday's game for personal reasons after learning of Kobe Bryant's tragic death.
