Jesus Christ what was the NBA thinking letting KD play tonight.

What a good game to win, shame about Durant. Can’t catch a break against us.
[–]Lakers duneboggler 於 6小時前 發表
With 8 points tonight, Kevin Durant's 166 consecutive game double-digit scoring streak, and third-longest active streak in the NBA ends.
Durant also had a 562 consecutive double-digit scoring streak that ended in 2017 when Zaza Pachulia ran into his knee.

Does anyone actually care about these records though
[–]Supersonics kenjirouen 95 指標 6小時前*
KD probably does.
He loves his stats/records. And I know Lebron does too, his is at 1000+ so he always makes sure to hit 10 points.

Lowry is gonna tell his grandkids he beat a team so good they had Kevin Durant coming off the bench

He was on a mission late in the 4th. Was not losing that game

Lowry does god damn everything. So well rounded for an undersize pg.
[–]So_SHIESTY 於 7小時前 發表
He's now averaging over 18, 6, and 7. Even though the Guard position is stacked this year in the East, should he make an all star spot?
[–]Lakers GlizzanderHolyfield 7 指標 7小時前*
Harden, Kyrie, Jaylen, Trae, Brogdon, Beal, Lavine it’s gonna be tough for him.
[–][TOR] Pascal Siakam ahil_ 14 指標 7小時前
Hopefully the coaches bless him one more allstar game
[–]Tampa Bay Raptors MolicOnePGR 10 指標 6小時前
Indiana don’t deserve 2 All Stars, so Brogdon won’t get in. LaVine? No.
[–]Lakers GlizzanderHolyfield 5 指標 6小時前
Well these are all just contenders at the guard spot, which is why I said it’s gonna be tough. A lot will change until voting ends obviously, but as of this moment I would say no.

The Raptors have quietly won three straight, are currently the 8 seed in the East and Spicy P has scored 30+ in three of his last four games. Look out, they comin'

The Raps are tied for the 6th spot after tonight.
I think they're like a half game back of 5th now

this team has way too much talent to not make the playoffs
[–]Buckstheo7777 42 指標 6小時前
In general the Raptors seem to be putting it together the past 10 games or so. I'm pretty confident they'll get the 6th seed in the end (maybe even 5th).
[–]Raptors imsahoamtiskaw 106 指標 6小時前
We been slowly coming along. It's been nice to see. Championship dna still there. Need a center
[–][DAL] Wang Zhizhi suzukigun4life 99 指標 6小時前
Been telling folks for a while that you guys were going to turn things around and it's finally happening. When you guys were 2-8 or whatever, you guys were actually up in 7 of those 8 losses, and the lone exception was at Golden State, where you guys made a big comeback before losing in the final seconds.
[–]reddthrowawayaccount 63 指標 6小時前
I mean anyone who seriously thought the Raps wouldn't make the playoffs are some braindead haters.
We'll be a low seed+a first round exit. But we're definitely making the playoffs.

I hope this means my guy Siakam is back, has he looked better lately Raptors fans?
[–]Raptors arrow00 16 指標 6小時前
really liking this new siakam that barely shoots 3s
[–]Raptors FlimsyLaugh 48 指標 6小時前
Better decision-making for sure and looks more confident in his game.
[–]Raptors Schteb11 21 指標 5小時前
He’s staying composed which is huge. When Pascal starts to flail around the game becomes hell for him but he’s making the right reads and not rushing things now and it shows.
[–][BRK] Brook Lopez dgarrad 25 指標 6小時前
We all knew the Raps are better then their record. But, Turnovers that we made with lazy passing, and Orebs at the end just cost us this game bad. Harden shooting 8 times is mindblowing though lmao.
[–][DAL] Wang Zhizhi suzukigun4life 283 指標 6小時前
Harden and Kyrie with a combined 7 points on 2/7 shooting after KD exited the game with 9 minutes to go in the 3rd.
[–][UTA] Gordan Giricek trakavica 84 指標 6小時前
Harden took 8 shots in 40 minutes of playing time. What the fuck.
[–]Raptors sna28 121 指標 6小時前
i dont know what kyrie was doing but for harden raptors defense if you remember last year throws bodies at the star and makes role players beat them so that shouldnt be too surprising. he was making the right reads
[–]Raptors slamdunk23 11 指標 6小時前
Raps play hard help defense vs stars. Give up open 3 to role players sbut shutdown the stars.
[–]Raptors madtolive 17 指標 6小時前
He saw a lot of double teams and a decent amount of box-and-one. The Raptors always throw a bunch of different looks at him to try and make him a passer. He was serving up dimes tonight too, Nets missed a lot of great looks off of his penetration.
[–]Nets SelfDeprecating 20 指標 6小時前
Fair, but Harden's been like this pretty much since the big three got together. He's only taken 15+ shots twice in the last eight games.
[–]NBA Niceguydan8 13 指標 5小時前
That's because Kyrie frankly won't do it even if he probably should.
Harden is by far the best facilitator on the team. He's looking to get a good shot, regardless of who it is and he will find that guy or shoot it if it's a good shot for him.
Kyrie can bend the defenses the same way, but you IMO Kyrie would rather take a mediocre shot himself than give Jeff Green or Joe Harris a great shot generally.
[–]Raptors Bail____ 46 指標 6小時前
Someone has to give up shots lmao. Harden is the best playmaker of the 3 & a good post defender.
He brings that for you guys . I remember a couple years ago he said he hated playing the way he did in Houston
[–]Raptors nobleGAAS 109 指標 6小時前
Harden was absolutely making the right reads, made absolute sense why he took less shots when literally every Raptor was swarming him.
Kyrie was weird, I barely even noticed his presence in the second half lmao not sure if it's a by product of Harden taking over ball handling or something else
[–]NBAEarthWarping 76 指標 6小時前
[–]Raptors nobleGAAS 37 指標 6小時前
Makes sense, guess that's a true sign of a great defender: if you barely even notice his man on the court
[–]Lakers SloatThritter 2 指標 3小時前
THe Nets desperately need to sustain KD at all costs this year. KD is the only one of the three with any sort of heart. Harden and Kyrie will accept defeat when "their game" isn't working for them.
[–]Rockets Tyler123839 48 指標 6小時前
We just got out hustled. Losing durant didn’t help but they were just putting in the effort at the end of the game and it showed.

It's because Siakam will murder you in the paint and the Nets aren't set up to defend those kinds of players at all
[–]nineqqqqqqqqq 9 指標 5小時前
truth, siakam will struggle against philly/mil, but not so much the Nets, although, if KD is in, he really helps guard siakam.

[–]ZenMon88 5 指標 6小時前
If the nets played DJ at the end, they would have won. I think KD out kinda messed up their flow. Packing the paint to stop siakam should have been priority. Harden needs a rim runner on the other end instead of bruce brown and another shooter.
