Brooklyn Nets will have Kyrie Irving available for Thursday’s showdown against the Los Angeles Lakers. Irving missed the latest Nets’ game against the Suns with back tightness.

The Nets will still be missing Kevin Durant, who is out due to a mild hamstring issue. On the other hand, Anthony Davis is out for the Lakers for tonight’s matchup.

Irving has a great year so far leading the Nets, alongside Kevin Durant and James Harden, to the second best record in the Eastern Conference.

The Nets’ superstar averages 28.3 points, 5.7 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game this season being the second scorer of his team behind Kevin Durant.

The Lakers have also the second best record in their conference only behind the ‘red-hot’ Utah Jazz.
