Kyrie Irving was en fuego Tuesday night in Orlando.

Irving scored 60 points, a new Nets record, before being subbed out amid Brooklyn’s 150-108 drubbing of the Magic that reached a differential of over 40 points in the fourth quarter.

Irving shot 20 of 31, including 8 of 12 from three-point range and 12 of 13 from the free throw line, in his 60-point output.

This night marked a new career high for Irving, and tied the highest-scoring individual game in the NBA this season with Karl-Anthony Towns, who scored 60 points against the San Antonio Spurs Monday night.

Irving and Kevin Durant — who scored 53 points in Sunday’s win — are the first teammates in NBA history to score 50-plus points in consecutive games, per ESPN.

Irving, who is still only playing Nets away games as New York City’s private company vaccine mandate prevents him from playing at the Barclays Center, had another magnificent performance last week in Charlotte. In that game versus the Hornets, he scored 50 points on 15-19 shooting — a 78.9 percent field goal rate.
