If you need a hit of Nets basketball — of course you do! — YES Network is there for you. Starting Thursday night, the network will air classic Nets games...
Thursday’s game will be a replay of the Nets first win of the season, a 113-109 win over the Knicks. Kyrie Irving scored 26 points and made a go-ahead 3-pointer with 22 seconds left after the Knicks had taken a late lead, and the Nets held in the first meeting this season between New York’s teams.
Friday’s game will be a replay of Kyrie Irving’s 54-point explosion against the Bulls. It was Irving’s first game after the death of his friend Kobe Bryant. Irving made all 10 shots in the first half and 19-of-23 for the game, to lead the Nets to a 133-118 victory over Chicago. Irving had help as Spencer Dinwiddie had 15 and Taurean Prince added 11 in the opening 24 minutes.
No word yet on whether YES will air other games.
