NEW YORK — Kyrie Irving oozed swagger when he walked onto the court during the starting lineup announcement on Wednesday. After all, Irving viewed this — the Nets’ regular season opener — as a sort of homecoming. To mark the occasion, Irving dazzled offensively and broke four records.

The guard finished with 50 points. When he hit 32 points, he had set a new record for most points scored in a Nets’ debut. The previous record was 30. When he hit 48 points, he set a new record for points scored in an NBA debut for any team. The previous record of 47 points was set by Kiki Vandeweghe in 1984.

Then he hit 50. There had only been six 50-point games in Nets’ franchise history and the last one was recorded in 2012 by Deron Williams. The last player with a 50-point opener was Anthony Davis and before Davis, Michael Jordan.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Frank Vogel admitted that Kawhi Leonard and the LA Clippers disrupted “everything” in the Los Angeles Lakers’ 112-102 loss on opening night. But in straying from their intended pick-and-roll-heavy offense because of the Clippers’ switching schemes, Vogel believes the Lakers happened upon an effective alternative.
“The first positive is our post offense is a problem for other teams,” Vogel said Wednesday when asked to share a hopeful tidbit gleaned from the Lakers’ film session.

The Lakers’ post offense was far more effective than any pick-based possession. It wasn’t close, really. In 30 pick plays, L.A. averaged 0.56 points per possession, well below the 2018-19 NBA average of 0.97 points on those plays, according to Second Spectrum.

However, the Lakers’ 27 post-up plays worked out to the tune of 1.17 points per possession, which would have been the best rate in the league last season if L.A. had carried it all season, per Second Spectrum.

Chief among the post-up targets was Anthony Davis, who posted up 22 times in his Lakers debut, according to Second Spectrum, the second-most he has posted up in a game in the past seven seasons, which is as far back as the data go.
“They couldn’t stop him,” Vogel said of Davis on the block. “So whatever works, you go to it again, and we just kept going to him.”
When the pick-and-roll gets blown up like it did Tuesday, Vogel says there are other counters L.A. can use beyond simply riding Davis.

“We can pass and cut a lot more than we did,” he said. “We can run a lot more than we did.”
Vogel also said that when the Lakers do post up, they can space the floor around the man with the ball much better.
There are no plans to abandon the pick-and-roll. Instead, Rajon Rondo, who missed opening night with a sore calf, will be in the mix running screen-roll action in the future.

“I envision Rajon Rondo being a major player for us this year — 25-30 minutes a game guy, whether he starts or comes off the bench,” Vogel said, adding that Rondo remains day-to-day ahead of Friday’s game against the Utah Jazz.

Rondo, 33, averaged 9.2 points on 40.5% shooting (35.9% from 3) with 8.0 assists and 5.0 rebounds last season, his first with the Lakers. However, he had a real plus-minus of negative 3.56 points per 100 possessions, meaning that over the course of the season, L.A. seemed to lose ground when he was in the lineup.

Vogel gave Rondo’s minutes exclusively to Quinn Cook in the opener. Cook finished with four points on 2-for-7 shooting, two assists and one turnover in 17 minutes. He missed two key 3-pointers in the fourth quarter while L.A. was trying to keep pace with the Clippers. He too was dealing with a sore calf muscle, which limited his role.
Alex Caruso, who is expected to get a look in Vogel’s backcourt rotation, was available to play coming off a bruised pelvic bone in the preseason, but Vogel kept him on the bench.
All of those circumstances led to LeBron James playing 36 minutes at point guard, and he struggled down the stretch, shooting just 1-for-4 in the fourth quarter with three turnovers.

James’ workload is another area in which Rondo figures to be a factor.
“I think when Rajon comes back, we’ll have the mindset that he can quarterback the offense with anybody that’s out there,” Vogel said.
The Lakers will apply the lessons learned from the loss to the Clippers.

“I think getting Rajon Rondo back will put us in a lot more pick-and-rolls, but our post offense was something [the Clippers] had to deal with,” Vogel said. “We were heavier in the post than maybe we will be throughout the season because of it being effective for us, but we continue to make sure we have a diverse package out there.”

But it wasn’t a hiccup-less inaugural Nets game for Irving. Brooklyn fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 127-126 in overtime. Mid-game doldrums came in the form of turnovers and missed free throws.
Even as the Nets began to spiral towards a 0-1 record, Irving got a warm reception from fans. Irving was introduced last in the starting lineup — a basketball honor reserved for a team’s long tenured star. He has been given a corner locker in the Nets’ locker room — another league-wide symbol of stature.

The Barclays Center crowd erupted when Irving sank his first basket. Every time he charged towards the basket after that, fans would let out an audible “ooh” or gasp. Irving appeared determined to dazzle, throwing somewhat haphazard and unnecessary behind-the-back passes minutes into the first quarter.
