The Brooklyn Nets battled the Charlotte Hornets in a warm home game Sunday night. The Nets invited Kyrie Irving to his first home game of the period. This comes after Mayor Eric Adams exempted competitors from the vaccination order that kept Irving from attending home games.
Charlotte beat Brooklyn 119-110 as the groups traded places in the Eastern Conference. The Hornets (39-36) climbed to eighth place while the Nets (39-36) fell to 10th place.
Irving’s revisit of his home court was positively received by partners and fans alike.
After the game, Irving spoke about his home induction, which isn’t just about others experiencing the same thing. He labeled the second “bigger than a basketball match” and recommended ending command for everyone.
His comments disagreed with sports analyst Skip Bayless as he influenced Irving’s proclamation and the group’s exhibition of Skip and Shannon: Undisputed.
“Kyrie is so delusional that he’s actually trumpeting the fact that he’s stood his ground and stood his ground… for the wrong reasons,” Bayless said. “You just lost at home to Charlotte in your first home game to drop to 39 and 36. They’re barely over .500. you stunk KD (Kevin Durant) stank. Your whole team stunk yesterday. And yet you talk about freedom, ‘I made it.’”

Kyrie Irving fails to win first home game this season against Hornets
The Brooklyn Nets hosted the Charlotte Hornets at the Barclays Center for Kyrie Irving’s first home game of the period on Sunday. The Nets lost the game 119-110 as well as their eighth place finish to the Michael Jordan-claimed establishment.
Irving had a terrible night, shooting 6 out of 22 (27.3%). From the 3-point range, he only made 1 of 9 attempts (11.1%). He recorded 16 points, 11 assists, two rebounds and two takes.
LaMelo Ball, on the other hand, had a great day, shooting 58.3% from behind the curve and 47.6% from the field. He was the game’s top scorer with 33 points, nine assists and seven rebounds.
As the Atlanta Hawks (37-37) close in, the Eastern Conference play-in openings will be challenged in the final stretch.
The 7th-ranked Cleveland Cavaliers (41-33) are going up against the 6th-ranked Toronto Raptors (42-33) to become the No. 6 seed (and stay out of the play-in). Meanwhile, the Hornets and Nets have indistinguishable 39-36 records, 2.5 games behind Cleveland. The Atlanta Hawks are 1.5 games behind Brooklyn.
The team that finishes seventh and eighth plays in a seven-eight game. The winner of that game receives the #7 seed. The teams that place 10th and 10th place play in the nine-ten game. The champion of this game will play the seven eight game for the number 8.
