Durant shines in unofficial Nets debut

Durant shines in unofficial Nets debut”

After weeks of using Instagram stories and written reports as his primary means of communication, Kyrie Irving Brooklyn spoke to reporters Monday morning after training in the Nets, reflecting on playing for the first time since February, and was on the court Kevin Torrent Why he chose to violate the league's media rules.

"When I first became close with Kev, it was just built on that". "We saw good stints, where I thought we were really impressive at both ends of the floor, but overall, it wasn't really as sustainable as we'd like". "So, I felt like I was just chomping at the bit". "And I wanted to make sure that was clear, no distractions, nothing about dispelling anything, nothing about going back and forth".

Also registering double figures in scoring Sunday night was Spencer Dinwiddie, who contributed 10 points, seven assists and six rebounds for the Nets, who got 68 of their total points from the reserves.

One of them was when he drew a charge on Washington's Rui Hachimura early in the game.

He finished with 18 points, four assists, and zero turnovers, posting incredible shooting figures of 7-of-9 from the field and 2-of-3 from beyond the arc.

"I want to play at the highest level of basketball - the highest intensity of basketball and that's not in the preseason", Durant said. "We want to perform in a secure and protected space".

After the surgery, Irving said he "needs to rebuild himself".

"Steve's been wonderful", said Irving. "He commands to be respectful".

"It felt great, you know, to be back in a routine and get back on the floor and feel like a player again", Durant said. But it's just like, man, we have such a great synergy.

It was the first time star duo Durant and Kyrie Irving shared the court together for the Nets, after the latter arrived from the Boston Celtics ahead of the 2019-20 season. That was his first basket in an National Basketball Association game in 552 days. "You can't make up time, you can't make up trying to get this whole thing as a championship collective train right away". I'm working towards that point.

"Obviously the circumstances are different, no fans in the stands and I know the Nets fans were looking forward to this day, but hopefully enjoyed it on TV".
