Brooklyn Nets star guard Kyrie Irving was seen arguing with teammate Kevin Durant after missing three points and free throws that could have put the team ahead in Game 4 of the first round on Monday night.
The Nets with Kevin Durant played more aggressively than in previous games and even tried some physicality in the first quarter, which didn’t help them much but got them into bad trouble. As the first quarter finished the nets, Seth Curry and Goran Dragic had three fouls, Durant had two and Nic Claxton had one. The Nets’ total fouls were 10 to Boston’s six fouls.
After that, the game between the two east teams was full of back and forth in the second and third quarters. Now the whole game depended on the fourth quarter where Steve Nash decided to bring Durant, Irving, Blake Griffin, Curry and Dragic to the final quarter to start. The game between both teams was tight so it was difficult to predict the outcome of the game until the last few minutes came.

Now Irving and Durant took control as they scored in back-to-back possessions to reduce the lead to 109-108. Meanwhile, Jaylen Brown pulled off some great layup moves that pushed the score to 111-108. After that, we saw a drop in Durant’s efficiency when he missed three points, and later when he was fouled, he missed one of two free throws. Well, shortly after that miss, they failed to defend their side of the pitch which is the story of the whole series and the game ended in the Celtics’ favor 116-112.
When Durant missed several chances to put the Nets ahead, the coach took time out to calmly understand the situation, but it seems Kyrie was trying to tease his teammate while they argued on the bench.

Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving failed to please Nets fans as they were swept to the Celtics in round one of the playoffs.
The two-time NBA champion posted a game-high 39 points and Irving added just 20 points, while Seth Curry scored 23 points and didn’t win the fourth game, and their hopes of winning the championship end there. The Celtics took revenge on last season’s Nets when they were knocked out 4-1 by Brooklyn in round one. Now the Celtics will have to wait to hear about their round two opponents as the Bucks vs. Bulls series is still a tie.
