Kyrie Irving: “When things become overwhelming in life, you've just got to take a step back and realize what's important. And I love to play -- it's never been a question. I've committed myself, when this wasn't even a thing for me." https://t.co/eq9djuayCG

A crucial quote from this deeply reported @JeffPassan and @minakimes story: “My number one motivation is I want to prevent this from happening to someone else... 

Women are the ones who get fingers pointed at them. I don't want to go through the victimization process again.” https://t.co/K7IqFxu9J2 https://t.co/9HcLd5lBbK

Kevin Durant and James Harden are the first teammates ever to each score 30+ points in each of their first two games together with a franchise, per @EliasSports. Durant had 42 points on Monday against the Magic, 30 today vs. Milwaukee. Harden had 32 points on Monday, 34 today.

The fake crowd noise in Barclays Center is blaring as the Nets pull off a 125-123 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. James Harden finishes with 34 points, 12 assists and six rebounds. Kevin Durant had 30 points, 6 assists and 9 rebounds. DeAndre Jordan adds 12 points, 12 rebounds.

James Harden now has 87 career 30-point, 10-assist games. According to the @EliasSports, that ties LeBron James for the 2nd-most all-time. Only Oscar Robertson (230) has more.

At halftime, the Nets lead the Bucks 57-56. After combining for 15 of the team's 19 turnovers last game against the Magic, Harden and Durant said that would be a point of emphasis moving forward. Harden has 6 TOs in the first half against the Bucks. Durant has just one.

Sources confirmed to @MarcJSpears that Kyrie Irving helped purchase a home for George Floyd's family. Floyd, a black man, was killed in May when a white police officer knelt on his neck for several minutes. https://t.co/omrQzlLPrX

So Irving's return to the Nets and debut alongside Kevin Durant and James Harden likely comes with Wednesday and Friday games in Cleveland. Irving has only returned to play once there since his trade to Boston in the summer of 2017 -- on opening night in October of that season.
