After a rocky start by the Brooklyn Nets, they have finally found their rhythm offensively and have now won their 3 straight games, Kevin Durant who was 1st in NBA’s official MVP ladder yet again led his team in scoring by far by scoring 29 points on 12 of 27 shooting to go along with 10 rebounds and 5 assists, a franchise record with 9+ straight games with 20+ points. Shooting woes for James Harden continues as for someone who averaged 36 points, 32 points per game in their career has been having a really down year in terms of scoring but that’s the thing about being a great player, one can contribute in many areas as Harden recorded a triple-double of 13 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists and passes Larry Bird for 7th all-time in most triple-double ever. Even though his shooting slump is very concerning especially Kyrie out of the lineup due to vaccination troubles, he has to step up in scoring in order for them to exceed the expectation and ultimately win the dreamland.

For the Detroit Pistons, 2nd placed Most Improved player Jerami Grant had an awful game going 0 of 9 from the floor and scoring just 9 points, Their number 1 pick rookie Cade Cunningham has also been in a shooting slump from the three-point line and before this game he was just 1 of 15 from the three-point line, he today finally scored 17 points and showed his potential as a number 1 pick of the 2021 draft.

Nets will now go on to face the Raptors and KD expects a ‘ridiculous’ crowd as it’ll be their first game in Canada after the pandemic Raptors superfan and world-famous rapper Drake is one of them. While this isn’t the type of game Drake needed to make an appearance in the arena.
