Joe Harris on fire as LBJ reached another career checkpoint
With such a super team like that of Brooklyn one always expects Kyrie Irving or James Harden to shine. And even LeBron James being the opponent, Bron is bound to make his mark. Joe Harris took everyone by surprise. Being the second highest scorer after James Harden for the Nets, he had 21 points in the list. But what was special was he had 6 3-pointers to go with it. He was unstoppable beyond the arc. It was just a crazy night for him. This impressed former NBA champion and analyst Kendrick Perkins. He said, “Couldn’t have told me that LeBron James, James Harden and Kyrie Irving all on one court and I would be saying that JOE HARRIS was the Player of the Game!!! Just saying tho…” Despite having so many stars on the court, it was his night.
LeBron James continued to impress throwing down his infamous Toma-Hawk dunk. In the due process LBJ reached a career milestone. LeBron James had 35000 career points against his name. He is the youngest ever to reach this mark. In fact, he is the youngest to reach every thousand-point mark in the league. Regardless of the appraises, it is a rocky time for Los Angeles to get back to momentum. Ending the night with 11-point loss was disheartening. LeBron even left the court without shaking hands with Kyrie or any other Nets’ player.
