Last night the Nets (45-24, 2nd in the East, 25-8 at home) did their job in Chicago (115-107); but there is some bad news for them: Kyrie Irving left the court injured due to an – unlucky – elbow hit by Vucevic. Durant stood out with 21 points, and Brown complimented the team’s stars nicely by adding 15 points and ten rebounds.
We will know in the last minute if James Harden (G, 25.2 points, 8.0 rebounds, 10.9 assists) will make the game against the Spurs. However, Irving (G, 27.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 6.2 assists) is very unlikely for tonight’s clash.
The Spurs (33-35, 10th in the West, 19-15 on the road) played with their backs against the wall versus the Bucks in San Antonio two nights ago. The impressive win (146-125) proves that Greg Popovic still knows what he is up to. DeRozan stopped at 23 points, Murray had 21 points, and Johnson added 20 points. Poeltl was only one breath away from the triple-double, with 9 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists!
Derrick White, S.A.’s valuable playmaker, is out until the end of the season.
