Kevin Durant scores 25 as Nets defeat Hornets to go 20 games over .500, 130-115

Photo by Sarah Stier/ It’s pretty tough to lose a basketball game while shooting 51.8 percent from three. Led by Kevin Durant, the Nets defeated the Hornets, 130-115. With the win, Brooklyn now sits 20 games above .500 for the second time this season and improves to 38-18 on the season. The last time the Nets went 20 games over .500 in a season was the 2001-02 season, the year the New Jersey Nets made its first of two straight Finals appearances. Durant had himself another impressive showing, finishing with 25 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field and 3-of-5 from...

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...

Steve Nash on Kevin Durant resting against the 76ers: ‘We’ve gotta protect him’

Already missing James Harden, Tyler Johnson, and now Chris Chiozza to a season-ending right hand fracture, and with Blake Griffin resting and LaMarcus Aldridge out because of illness, perhaps the biggest loss of all was Kevin Durant, fresh off an iconic 31-point night on 11-of-15 shooting against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday.

Tuesday night, without Kevin Durant and James Harden, among others, the Brooklyn Nets will look to retain first place in the East when they head to Philadelphia to take on the 76ers. Brooklyn will be shorthanded; the 76ers, most likely, will be at full strength. So would it even matter of the Nets lost? Yeah, of course. It would be nice to be playing from ahead, as opposed to be making up ground in the standings. So, hey, win. OK? Once again, we’ll be taking to Clubhouse after tonight’s game...
