Kevin Durant scores 31 points in 27 minutes as Brooklyn blow out Minnesota, 127-97

Photo by David Sherman/NBAE via The short-handed Nets took care of business in a long-handed way. Writ large. Without James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge and Kyrie Irving, the Nets blew out the Timberwolves, 127-97, in a tense Minneapolis. The game, originally scheduled for Monday night, was postponed and played mid-afternoon without fans while protestors and police faced off in a nearby suburb following the killing of a young black man by police ... and jurors heard testimony in the trial of another police officer accused of killing George Floyd. With the win, Brooklyn...

Kyrie Irving scores 37 as shorthanded Nets fail in gutsy comeback vs. Sixers, 123-117

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Sure, it’ll count as a loss in the record books. But consider this a moral victory. The shorthanded Nets, who were without four of their biggest weapons - Kevin Durant, James Harden, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge - fell to the Sixers, 123-117. With the loss, the tiebreaker for the No. 1 seed belongs to Philadelphia. Brooklyn falls to 37-18 on the season and are now a game behind the Sixers for the first seed. The Sixers led 112-90 with 8:21 remaining but the Nets second unit provided life and hope when they needed it, holding...

INJURY REPORT: Chris Chiozza breaks hand; Kevin Durant, LaMarcus Aldridge out; Kyrie Irving in

Photo by David Sherman/NBAE via It would probably be easier to list who IS playing tonight in Philadelphia rather than who isn’t. Seven Nets —count ‘em— fill the team’s injury status report for the game that could determine the Eastern Conference seeding. Read it and weep... The absence of Kyrie Irving, who missed Tuesday’s game, means he’s available. He’ll be one of ten Nets dressed and active. The big surprise of course is that Chris Chiozza fractured the third metacarpal of his shooting hand in the Timberwolves game Tuesday...
