Nnot even COVID-19 can stop Kevin Durant decide to take Brooklyn nets for a great season, especially against teams like Philadelphia 76ers… The former MVP knows his team needs to assert their dominance in Eastern Conference and for this he will do anything. On Thursday night, the Nets hosted Sixers v Barclay Center with a huge list of players who could not play due to COVID-19… This is a disaster for all American sports as the virus ravages teams across the country. While neither case has been fatally serious, fortunately, the players on the roster must be quarantined to keep from spreading the virus. But Durant has been steady in his performances over the past two games.
Despite playing against an excellent duo formed by Joel Embiid and Seth CurryBrooklyn Nets have found their place in the fourth quarter with the imperial Durant who got incredible grip in the last quarter. The last five minutes of the last quarter were absolute madness for Durant, who scored the winning goal and kept the 76ers at bay despite 32 points from Joel Embiid and 29 points from Seth Curry. ‘Durantulla’ finished the game with 34, stating that he could come forward when the other two stars are not available. Truly a game level MVP as Durant earned his fourth straight game with 30+ points for the Brooklyn Nets.
What’s next for the Nets and 76ers?
After today’s victory Brooklyn nets climb to 21-8 records and take a break for the day before bumping into Orlando Magic at Barclays Center next Saturday. Philadelphia 76ers do not feel so well after this defeat, they even have 15-15 records, and they will rest for two days before encountering New Orleans Pelicans upon their return to Philly… Playing like this for the rest of the season Durant could just give the Nets a chance to make the playoffs without even breaking a sweat.
