Brooklyn Nets: Kevin Durant and James Harden Dazzle Again
Kevin Durant and James Harden were once teammates with the Oklahoma City Thunder. They have been teammates once again with the Brooklyn Nets once again the last two games. Kevin Durant hit the game-winning three with 36.8 seconds remaining in regulation as the Brooklyn Nets took down the Milwaukee Bucks by a final score of 125-123.
James Harden assisted on Durant’s game-winning three-pointer and those two players have co-existed from the very start. This dynamic duo may be the best in the NBA other than Anthony Davis and Lebron James of the Los Angeles Lakers.
Kevin Durant is the second best player in the NBA. James Harden is a Top 5-10 player in the NBA also. They honestly don’t need Kyrie Irving because he is going to find a way to mess up the team chemistry and they should honestly pay him to stay home for the rest of the season.
Durant scored 30 points and he shot 47.6 percent from the field. Kevin Durant also grabbed nine rebounds, recorded six assists, and blocked two shots.
Harden scored 34 points and he shot 52 percent from the field. James Harden also grabbed six rebounds, recorded 12 assists, and blocked one shot.
The Brooklyn Nets are in
James Harden has never won an NBA Title. The closet he has come was with the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2012 in a five-game loss against the Miami Heat.
Harden never reached the NBA Finals with the Houston Rockets. They almost defeated the Golden State Warriors in 2018 but lost to them in seven games with Chris Paul.
The Kevin Durant and the James Harden duo is the heartbeat and the heart and soul of the Brooklyn Nets. This duo could potentially bring home an NBA Championship this season.
Harden was recently traded from the Houston Rockets and they gave up a lot to get him.
Durant was signed as a free agent in the offseason of 2019 and so was Irving. We will see how first-year Head Coach Steve Nash decides how to use his rotation and minutes when they all come back.
Assistant coach Mike D’Antoni coached James Harden with the Houston Rockets.
The last time Kyrie Irving won an NBA Championship was in 2015-2016 with the Cleveland Cavaliers. They came back from a 3-1 series deficit against the 73-9 Golden State Warriors. Lebron James, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and J.R. Smith were all on that team as well here.
Kevin Durant is looking to win his third NBA Title this season, James Harden is looking to win his first NBA Title this season, and Kyrie Irving is looking to win his second NBA Title this season.
The Milwaukee Bucks (9-5) next game will be against the Los Angeles Lakers (11-4) on Thursday night at home.
The Brooklyn Nets (9-6) next game will be against the Cleveland Cavaliers (6-7) on Wednesday night on the road.
