The Brooklyn Nets overcome their fierce rivals The New York Knicks as they defeated them by the score of 110-107, in a game that went to the wire.

Kevin Durant once again dropped a masterclass as he scored 53 points to help the Nets win the game as they were missing the services of Kyrie Irving due to the vaccine mandate.

He shot 19/37 from the field as his usage was higher than usual due to the fact that the Brooklyn Nets were missing both Seth Curry and Kyrie Irving who are responsible for much of the scoring of the team.

The Knicks put up a brilliant fight as Julius Randle, RJ Barrett, and Evan Fournier all had 20+ points in the match. This was a big effort for a team that has been struggling throughout the season.

Brooklyn Nets still missing some of their key players.

The Brooklyn Nets have several players unavailable or injured. It is a big concern for them and their recent results have been reflecting that.

Kyrie Irving due to the vaccine mandate along with the likes of Ben Simmons, Seth Curry, and Lamarcus Aldridge were missing this game as they hope to come back soon and help Kevin Durant.

It is reported that Ben Simmons will be ready to make his Nets debut later this month. It will be a huge boost for them as they are missing a player of his caliber on the defensive end. He can also attack the paint when required.

This Brooklyn Nets team is a legitimate contender for the Championship. They are looking forward to getting the players back in the lineup for the playoffs.
