Kyrie Irving reacted to Nets coach Steve Nash claiming his first win as a head coach in the NBA.

Irving gave the game ball to Nash after the match, telling the NBA Hall of Famer that ‘this is the start of something new right here’.

Nash saw Irving and the Nets decimate the Golden State Warriors in the season opener (99-125).

Irving had 26 points, on 10/16 shooting and 4/7 from beyond the arc, in 25 minutes of action.
