Watch: Kyrie Irving booed during Nets home game
New York Knicks fans were out to let Kyrie Irving know on Friday night which team runs New York.
Irving was booed while at the free throw line in the first few minutes of the Brooklyn Nets’ game against the Knicks. He was booed even though his Nets were home at Barclays Center.

That may have happened early in the game, but Irving got the last laugh with a victory. He scored 26 points including five straight in the final minute to give the Nets the lead for good. He also apparently taunted Knicks fan Fat Joe after winning.
Looked like Kyrie Irving flipped the ball to Knicks fan Fat Joe after the buzzer sounded on the Nets’ 113-109 win over New York. Fat Joe, seated courtside, knocked it away in disgust. “This is our home!” Irving says in an on-court interview.

Irving now has a 50-point game (in an overtime loss) and 26-point game in a victory through his first two contests for his new team.
