Nets' Harden to sit out Sunday vs. Westbrook, Wizards

Nets' Harden to sit out Sunday vs. Westbrook, Wizards”

Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal combined for two three-pointers to steal a win from the Nets in the final seconds.

The Wizards are 1-4 since resuming play after a 13-day layoff that included six postponements due to COVID-19 related issues.

Kyrie Irving found Timothe Luwawu-Carbarrot under the basket with 2.9 seconds left, but his layup attempt spun around the rim and failed to drop. We just look at ourselves in the mirror and see what we can correct as individuals and as a group - especially on the effort. "Those guys were just going right around me and I was getting frustrated a little bit, but they kept attacking - and that's what good teams to and good scorers do".

The Wizards-Nets game, a show of determination, skill, and sheer force of will silenced Westbrook's haters as he hustled and bustled to help his team to a win against the Durant-led Nets.

Harris scored a career-high 30 points, and Irving had 26 for Brooklyn which led by as many as 18. The Nets gave up 72 points in the paint, tied for their third most allowed in a game over the past 25 seasons and the most allowed in a contest since 2017.

Beal started the quick comeback when he dribbled from coast-to-coast up the middle of the court and drained a deep 3-pointer to cut the Nets lead to 146-144 with about 8 seconds remaining.

Coach Brooks was pleased with Westbrook's performance. This is a good feeling.

"We've done it all year, and the basketball gods gave us a break tonight".

While the Nets weren't a great defensive team before the James Harden deal, Brooklyn has turned into the worst National Basketball Association team in that regard since the mega-deal, per StateMuse. "It's not looking great defensively for our team, giving up that many points", Durant said after Washington shot over 50 percent for the game.
