Kevin Durant will have to handle the load on offense if the Brooklyn Nets wish to beat the Charlotte Hornets
Kevin Durant will have to take matters into his hand and run the offense for the Nets since he is going to be the only star on the floor against the Hornets. If the Hornets can do some magic and do the impossible task of slowing Kevin Durant down then they might make something exciting happen, but even if everything goes well, winning without their top-three starters will be a tall task for the Hornets.
