Home cookin’ for Kyrie
The Mayor has spoken, and Kyrie is back — for home games! New York City has lifted its COVID restrictions and the Nets can now include Kyrie Irving in their lineups for home games.
That good news came before the Nets lost in Memphis on Wednesday night. But Kyrie was on fire yet again.

Tyreek hot takes
The Chiefs orchestrated a blockbuster trade on Wednesday, sending superstar receiver Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins for five (5!) draft picks. The Jets were reportedly one of the two finalists for the deal, but the Dolphins paid a king’s ransom for Hill.

Knicks record books
During the Knicks’ outstanding win against the Hornets on Wednesday night, Evan Fournier broke John Starks’ record for most 3-pointers in a season in franchise history. Coach Thibs talked about the accomplishment postgame.
Tom Thibodeau called tonight's win vs. the Hornets "one of our best games of the year", and congratulated Evan Fournier for setting the new Knicks record for three-pointers in a season:
"As crazy as [John Starks] is, he's held that record for a long time" pic.twitter.com/i0kbNTiXdU
