Kevin Durant had 29 포인트들, nine rebounds and seven assists for the Nets, who have lost five straight home games. James Harden finished with 16 포인트들, nine rebounds and seven assists.

Brooklyn won Wednesday night in Indiana with Kyrie Irving making his season debut. He wasn’t in the building Friday, ineligible to play home games because he hasn’t been vaccinated against COVID-19 as mandated for New York City’s professional athletes.

Harden said having Irving on Wednesday felt like having new life.

But we got to live with what we’re dealt with, and that’s home games we’ve got to figure ways and even road games,” 그는 말했다. “Just because Ky’s on the road with us doesn’t mean it’s going to be easy for us as well. So we’ve got to mesh and we’ve got to find ways to win games each individual time we play.

The Bucks won Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals here in overtime.

Coach Steve Nash said the Nets need to keep Mills in the lineup at home while starting swingman Joe Harris is recovering from left ankle surgery.

It feels weird and feels intense and I like it, but I also like not being in it at this point in time. Bud makes it look effortless man, but I’ve seen what he goes through being with him since Day 1.
