On NBA night, in addition to various trades that completely changed the landscape of the league, there was also the debut of Kyrie Irving with the Dallas Mavericks. The point guard had arrived in recent days from Brooklyn, showing up with explicit attacks on his former team.
Irving played on the night against the Clippers, a game won by Dallas. 104-110. The Mavs were without Luka Doncic, who was present on the bench in plain clothes due to an ankle problem that should be resolved within a few days. Kyrie finished with 24 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 5 turnovers, with 9/17 shooting and 4/8 three-pointers. The player also signed the two points that ended the game with a flying layup with 1′ to go.
