The Brooklyn Nets point guard Kyrie Irving scored 21 of his 32 points in the final 9 1/2 minutes, carrying Brooklyn to its ninth straight victory over the New York Knicks, 122-115 on Saturday.

“For me, I love beating the Knicks and playing against them, but all in all, it’s just about the objective and that’s to win the ballgame,” Irving said, via ESPN. “Nothing personal.”
