But it had no bearing on his performance, as he led Brooklyn Nets to register a 128-124 victory against the Phoenix Suns.
Phoenix Suns started well with Chris Paul scoring 11 points straight to leave the score 124-116. But, in the final minutes of the game, Green scored 3 points to lead the recovery for the Nets.
Harden scored another 3 points to lead Brooklyn Nets to the victory with a score of 128 – 124.
The Brooklyn Nets have generated the most buzz after the Irving-Durant duo was called to dominate the league and put on a great show for the team.
However, Irving has played only seven games, in the wake of receiving threats due to different controversies he has been involved in, this season.
Kyrie Irving is one of the most skilled players in the league, yet the scandals he’s already been involved in have overshadowed his glorious achievements.
He is known to have conflicts with media outlets and tabloids, on account of extensive coverage about his personal life.
Irving is considered as one of the best players in the NBA league. He won the Rookie of the Year award, however, for most of his career, scandals have tarnished his image and achievements.
