The Brooklyn Nets continue to roll past the competition with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving leading the way in a 123-106 victory over the Hornets in Charlotte.

After a lackluster start to the season that saw Irving get suspended eight games over a controversial tweet, and Steve Nash get fired in November, has  now turned into a season of promise after Brooklyn captured its 11th consecutive victory to close out the calendar year of 2022.

On Saturday night, Irving led the way with 28 points, 18 of those points came in the first half alone. Irving was 11-of-19 on the night, and 4-of-9 from downtown.

Durant was just as solid, contributing 23 points on 9-fo-15 shooting.

The Nets as a team shot 60 percent from the floor against Charlotte, and never trailed in the contest.

The Nets 11-game winning streak is now the second longest in franchise history. They need three more consecutive victories to tie the franchise record of 14, set twice in 2004 and 2006.
