Kevin Durant’s return against the Miami Heat was the biggest talking point a few days ago as the Brooklyn Nets finally expected to get back to winning ways. However, the result did not end in favor of Steve Nash’s team. But with Kyrie Irving able to rejoin one of his favorite partners after a long absence, many expected Nets to defeat Celtics. Until Jayson Tatum showed up.

The Boston Celtics marquee went berserk as he led his team across the line against the rigid team of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Seth Curry. However, it was Jayson Tatum who single-handedly led the proceedings for the home team. What’s even more shocking? In the 126-120 win, Tatum more than doubled all of his teammates, which certainly angered Kevin Durant.

Kevin Durant shakes head in disbelief after Jayson Tatum’s 54-point blast

As time came to an end in the fourth quarter and Jayson Tatum was on the free-throw line, Durant could be seen shaking his head in frustration as the Nets failed to squeeze out a win over their rivals Celtics. Kevin Durant put in an admirable performance in the loss, dropping 37 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists, but it ultimately wasn’t enough to counter Tatum’s big night.

The loss drops Durant and Brooklyn to 32-33 on the season. Should the regular season conclude on Sunday, the Nets would only qualify for the play-in tournament, currently ranked as the ninth seed in the Eastern Conference. The Brooklyn Nets have now lost both games Durant has played since returning from his MCL sprain. He played well in both games but the team failed to squeak out a win.
