Kevin Durant was not at his best offensively in the first two games of the Brooklyn Nets-Boston Celtics series. He explained why.
Kevin Durant hasn’t been himself lately and credits the Boston Celtics’ defense for that. The Brooklyn Nets are now 0-2 after losing Game 2 last night 114-107.
Despite a solid night from Bruce Brown and Seth Curry, the Nets’ main stars couldn’t get it started. In Game 1, Kyrie Irving was great, scoring 30 points. But Durant only managed to score 23 points on 9-of-24 shooting. In Game 2, Durant’s shootout continued. He shot 4 of 17 from the field and his 27 points came mostly from free throws. Irving, on the other hand, was limited to just 10 points.
During Durant’s post-game interview, he spoke offensively about his struggles.
Could Kevin Durant and the Nets find out in Brooklyn?
The series is now shifting to Brooklyn and even though the Nets are in a 0-2 hole, fans shouldn’t count them out just yet. Durant will eventually have a 30-point game. It’s very unlikely that Durant will allow his team to be swept. Teams tend to do better on their home pitch and feed on the energy of the crowd. Coming home could be just what the Nets need to pull off a win.
