Kyrie Irving also reacted on Temple's dunk. He put his hands near the floor, pointing out that Temple just barely jumped to convert the slam. Temple had taken the ball off Pelicans' inbounds pass and made his way to the basket for the dunk. According to his teammates and fans, Temple could have opted for a more exciting option than a soft dunk. Nets defeated Pelicans 132-125.
