After a long layoff due to his refusal to take the COVID-19 vaccine, Kyrie Irving made his return to the Brooklyn Nets lineup on Wednesday and scored 22 points, handed out four assists, made three steals, and brought down three rebounds to help lead the Nets to a 129-121 win.

In his 32 minutes of game time, Irving reminded everyone of how dangerous the Nets can be when he plays alongside James Harden and Kevin Durant.

The former Cleveland Cavaliers and Boston Celtics guard admitted that he was nervous about his comeback, but at the same time, he was excited to be back on the court.

“Just a lot of gratitude just to be present tonight with everyone,” Irving said.

The sentiment was also shared by several players and coaches, who were more than happy to have Irving back with the team.

“It was amazing to have him out there,” said Kevin Durant. “I mean, I just missed his presence in the locker room, his energy, his vibe around the team. And on top of that, his game is so beautiful. You know, it makes the game so much easier for everybody out there.”

Irving’s next game will be against the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday, a game that was initially scheduled for December 23 but was postponed due to a COVID-19 outbreak that struck the Nets.
