The Brooklyn Nets took on the Dallas Mavericks tonight. This game was one of the best games this season and had one of the wildest endings. Brooklyn ended up losing the game by 2 points due to an extremely weak and passive performance from Kevin Durant. With just one Brooklyn star on the court, the Dallas Mavericks pulled out the win from the bag.
Brooklyn was in the driving seat for the entire game. They outscored the Mavericks in the 1st and the 3rd quarter. By the end of the 3rd quarter, the Nets were leading by 12 points which was the biggest lead in the game. Dallas never leads in the game until the 4th quarter. In the last one-tenth of a second of the game, Spencer Dinwiddie scored a buzzer-beater against his former team. This shot was so resounding it sent Kevin Durant and the Nets straight to the locker room.
Kevin Durant loses it with a fan
Kevin Durant was not on the court when the Mavericks went on that run. However, when he came back in, one thing was apparent. It was that Kevin Durant needed to take control of the game. But his scoring was passive and whatever little he did attempt, he missed. KD did score the biggest shot for the Nets that game. But a good Kevin Durant performance would have given the win to the Nets without breaking a sweat.
His passiveness was evident which is why it led one fan to yell this out to KD, “Kevin you gotta take this game over.”
Kevin Durant knew what he had to do but was not willing to hear it. He responded to the fan by saying this,“You gotta shut the f**k up and sit down.”
