James Harden has finally found his way at the Brooklyn Nets. Switching from his aggressive offence to a more of ball handler took time. But finally he resolved his way out. The newest super team has been inconsistent with the wins but settling down takes time for obvious reasons. Now with Kevin Durant frustrated at health issues, it has all been on James Harden and Kyrie Irving for the team’s stake. The 3 superstars have now molded to each other’s playing style. This has got the team rolling out with a huge pace.
Following today’s match against the Sacramento Kings, Brooklyn Nets out played the host by 11 points. Once again it was Harden-Irving duo doing the magic in absence of KD. Kyrie Irving had 40 points to his name. While James Harden registered a huge triple –double with 29 points, 13 rebounds and 14 assists. It is itself a marvellous achievement. The team has been gelling together gradually and it was pretty evident today. The two stars looked phenomenal as the Kings had no answer to their offensive masterclass.
James Harden reacts to Kyrie Irving’s sensational performance against Kings
After a crazy night for Kyrie Irving, the team closed out with 11-point lead. James Harden was left mesmerized with Uncle Drew’s game. In the post-game interview, he said, “It’s a movie. It’s like a show. Sometimes, I forget I’m on the court. He makes them so effortless. One of the reasons why I’m here. He makes the game so easy for the rest of the team.” Truly Irving is a perfectionist. His ability to finish at the rim is unmatched.
The chemistry issue for the Brooklyn Nets is finally settling. James Harden and Kyrie Irving have done most works. KD is likely to miss a game or two with hamstring injury. The team is back on track. The ball distribution skill of James harden has left the whole league applauding.
