Kevin Durant needs Kyrie Irving, but he already lost 2 losses
Durant is missing Irving.
The Brooklyn Nets lost 95-111 against the Charlotte Hornets in the 2021-2022 NBA regular season at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on the 25th (Korea Standard Time).
Only Kevin Durant shined alone in Brooklyn. Durant supported Brooklyn with as many as 38 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists. However, James Harden, who has to lead Durant and the attack, tried 16 field goals and succeeded in only six.
Kyrie Irving’s absence also held Brooklyn back. Irving is currently unable to play in the home game due to not being vaccinated against COVID-19.
In a post-match interview, Durant said Brooklyn needed Irving.
When asked if he could win without Brooklyn’s starting point guard when the game became difficult, Durant said, “It’s not enough. Kyrie Irving should be sent to the court. He is a big part of what we are doing. However, Irving is unable to play on the court. So we have to figure out a way to win,” he said.
“But I won’t think about this during the game. We won’t lose confidence in anyone during the game, he added.
Brooklyn was originally expected to win the game. However, when I opened the lid, I got a completely different result. Brooklyn took an eight-point lead until the second quarter, but was completely defeated by Charlotte in the second half of the concentration.
Durant said, “In the first half, the game went well in our way. However, Charlotte played a better game in the second half, he said.
Meanwhile, Brooklyn manager Steve Nash claimed that Harden is not receiving a proper foul call at the moment. This is related to the revision of the foul induction rules announced by the NBA Secretariat this off-season.
However, Harden said, “Sometimes when I enter the stadium, I feel like I’m a player branded as a good foul caller. I’m not the type to complain about not receiving foul calls. You just have to keep playing. “It’s not a big deal,” he said, showing his determination.
