Kyrie returns with 37; Nets fall in debut of Big 3

News

Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving was in the starting lineup for Wednesday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers alongside Kevin Durant and James Harden.

Irving practiced with the team on Tuesday. He had missed the Nets’ last seven games — five for personal reasons and two while conditioning.

During the time away for personal reasons, the league fined Irving for violating health and safety protocols and attending what appeared to be a family birthday party. He also lost over $800,000 in salary for the two games he missed while in quarantine.

Irving is averaging 27.1 points, 5.3 rebounds and 6.1 assists in seven games this season.

ESPN’s Malika Andrews contributed to this report.
