Kyrie Irving and the Brooklyn Nets took a 1-0 lead over the Milwaukee Bucks with a 115-107 win at home in Barclays Center.

Irving finished with 25 points, eight assists and five rebounds. It was a particularly impressive win considering James Harden left in the first minute with a hamstring injury.

Kevin Durant finished with 29 while the Greek Freak, aka Giannis Antetokounmpo, had 34.

On Sunday, the Hawks take on Seth Curry and the 76ers in the first game of that series while the LA Clippers and Luke Kennard will host the Dallas Mavericks in Game 7.
