Kyrie Irving is back and he still has his mid-range game.

Take a moment to appreciate Kyrie Irving. He’s a future Hall of Famer who becomes a flamethrower with the basketball in his hands.

After a scoreless first quarter, Irving is back on the scoreboard for the first time since June. It took Irving a little while to find his rhythm, but he’s starting to put the pieces together.

It might take a few games for the Brooklyn Nets to work out the kinks with Irving, but it didn’t take long to see increased spacing. Irving has tremendous gravity as a floor spacer because he can knock down open threes or better yet, attack closeouts off the bounce.

It’s good to see him back on the court.
