Saturday night the Brooklyn Nets went into Ball Arena against the Denver Nuggets. They left with a win against the current fourth seed in the West. The Nets went into the ball game trying to find their chemistry heading into the postseason. They came to this matchup after being on a four game losing streak. Things have been a little rocky for the Nets so far. With the other piece of their big three, James Harden still out due to hamstring injury. And Kevin Durant still trying to find his rhythm on the court after just coming back from injury. Brooklyn looked really lackadaisical and had no energy in the first half of the game. They allowed 71 first half points and being down a 21 point deficit . Once the second half began that’s when the Nets woke up and started to get their offense clicking on all cylinders. In that half the team shot 51% from the three point line,
With help from Blake Griffin‘s efficiency on the court, with 20 points and shooting 80% from the field while making 4/6 from the three, this sparked the Nets roaring comeback. With the game getting tight it took the efforts of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant to be the superstars that they are and help seal the deal on the epic comeback. Both Irving and Durant combined for 17 points in the fourth quarter to help end the Nets losing streak. Irving and Durant finished the game having 31 and 33 points respectively. This was a must win to help put the Nets on track to get the right momentum heading into the playoffs. The Nets will look to keep this up when they head into the United Center to face off against the Chicago Bulls this Tuesday.
Vs. Chicago Bulls, Tuesday May 11th at 5:00PM Pacific
