Brooklyn Nets (BKN) were expected to face a challenge when playing against the Boston Celtics. The challenge was real, despite moments of suspense. In fact, Brookly Nets had a rollercoaster game, but ended up losing. At the end, it was really a competition between Brooklyn Nets' Kevin Durant and The Boston Celtics' Jayson Tatum. The Celtics beat the Brooklyn Nets, 126-120. But Jayson Tatum stole the show, scoring 54 points whereas Kevin Durant scored 37 points.
Kevin Durant had been on the sideline dealing with a knee injury, but he was back in shape. He was supported by Kyrie Irving. During his absence, the Nets had a seesaw performance. In the month of February, the Nets lost to Kings, Nuggets, and Wizards. In their previous game, Tthe Celtics beat the Nets that lacked the presence of the 2 top players.
Hence, all the hopes were that with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving back, the Nets will turn the trend. It did not happen. Despite the 4 rebounds by Kyrie Irving and multiple attempts by Kevin Durant to outscore the opponents, the Celtics had the game in their hands. The Nets having dropped down to ninth in the Eastern Conference standings, the prospects are a resignation to a losing season.
