The Nets had hoped that their absent star would return to the game on Sunday. They were halfway there. Kevin Durant (Kevin Durant) faced Oklahoma City, but Kyrie Irving (Kyrie Irving) faced the Thunder.
Durant missed the first three games due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols after contacting someone with COVID-19. But he repeatedly tested negative results for the coronavirus, cleared the quarantine, and could deal with his previous club.
Brooklyn was not so lucky with Irving.
Irving has now been out of three consecutive games because the team called it “personal reasons.” He missed an average of 27.1 points, which is a huge loss for the Nets. When asked if the team was satisfied with Irving’s explanation of his absence, Nash had a chance to say yes, but only replied that they kept the matter secret.
Sources told The Post that the absence of the All-Star Guard was related to the commotion among President Trump supporters in the Capitol on Wednesday.
After Durant missed three games, the Nets got into the Jazz with 36 points. The next night, they flew over the Eastern Conference̵
“We are 2-1. I would say this is what we achieved in three games, and we played pretty good basketball in consecutive games.”
“When these two people come back, it is important for all of us to maintain this momentum because obviously they are an important part of our team and we need them to perform well to do what we want. So I think For us, we must have confidence and have similar looks and things, because we will definitely need this kind of development.”
In Durant’s three games absent, LeWitt averaged 29.7 points and 7 assists per game, shooting 50% and 47.4% from the field, respectively. With Irving’s appearance on Sunday, Nash has another chance to keep Levitt in the starting lineup.
Joe Harris said: “Everyone is struggling with their own problems this season, and two-thirds of this league’s performance is quite stable.” “To become the elite team we want to go to, we Need to get better and have a better winning percentage. But for now, in terms of small wins, this is an important step in the right direction.
“We have been playing games-at least in the last few games-I think it’s more competitive, it just brings good energy. … I think we will continue to maintain this momentum, obviously when we get Ky and Kevin back, This will help a lot.”
