Irving returns to inflict defeat on Brooklyn Nets 119-107

NEW YORK: On the first anniversary of his trade to Dallas, Kyrie Irving returned to Brooklyn on Tuesday and showed his old team what they had lost with 36 points as the Mavericks beat the Nets 119-107.

With Luka Doncic putting up 35 points, 18 rebounds and nine assists, the Mavs dominated as they improved to 28-23 on the season while Brooklyn slipped to 20-30.

Irving, who returned from a six-game injury absence in Monday’s win at Philadelphia and Doncic, who shed a protective mask for his nose injury, said it was great to have the eight-time All Star back.
