MANILA, Philippines — The Brooklyn Nets may have lost their season opener to the Minnesota Timberwolves, but Kyrie Irving’s performance is more than a consolation.

Setting a new record for most points scored in a debut with a new team, Irving exploded for 50 points in his first game in a Brooklyn Nets jersey.

While the narrow 126-127 overtime loss at home sullied Irving’s performance, the All-Star guard’s explosive game may just be a testament to how dangerous the Nets can be this season.

Apart from his 50 points, Irving even flirted with a triple-double, recording eight rebounds and seven assists in 38 minutes of action.

With prized recruit Kevin Durant still recovering from injury, Irving will be the go-to guy on offense for the New York-based squad.
