With the injuries of Kyrie Irving and James Harden diminishing the power of the Brooklyn Nets, Kevin Durant and others need to move up in the playoffs.
James Harden didn’t go a minute before the hamstring injury on the second lap. Kyrie Irving sprained his right ankle in the second quarter of Game 4.
Now, the series is tied at 2-2, and Brooklyn needs to stop turning things around. Here are three networks that should expel Kyrie Irving and James Harden.
3. Blake Griffin
One of the best stories in Game 1 was Blake Griffin when Harden came out injured. The veteran striker was 18 points away, 14 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals away.
Unfortunately, it now looks like a flash in the pan. He has not scored double figures in three games. It has also been 40 percent or worse with 7 rebounds in both Nets losses. He’s taking 3s and not hitting.
Brooklyn could use the 1. Griffin game a lot more.
Kevin Durant can’t do it alone. Although he only played 17 minutes in Game 4, the problem is that Irving Netsen is the second leading scorer.
