The 2011 No. 1 overall pick became the ninth player in NBA history to join the famed 50-40-90 club. Irving shot 50.6% from the field, 40.2% from deep, and 90.2% from the charity stripe over 54 appearances in 2020-21.
"Phenomenal season from Ky," his Nets co-star Kevin Durant said postgame, according to ESPN's Malika Andrews. "He's a guy who can get it from anywhere on the floor at any time at that size is remarkable. Point guards that get 50-40-90 is just so much more impressive to me. I'm very happy for Kyrie, and I'm sure this won't be his last time."
