Kevin Durant carries the Nets to yet another win, Patty Mills makes 9 threes a franchise record

Thanks to KD’s 33 points and Patty Mills franchise-record 9 three off the bench, they were able to blow out the OKC by 120-96.

Patty Mills set a new career-high with 29 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 120-96 triumph over Oklahoma City on Monday morning. Kevin Durant of the Nets led the way with 33 points, but Mills made nine of twelve from beyond the arc for his greatest three-point total in the NBA. It’s also a Brooklyn record for three-pointers made by a bench player since Mills’ performance was crucial in the team’s 24-point victory. The 33-year-old made history earlier this month when he became the first NBA player to make his first ten three-pointers of the season.

While the Australian Olympic basketball captain is in fine form, Josh Giddey, another big Aussie, failed to deliver for the Thunder. After being selected with the sixth overall choice in the 2021 NBA Draft, the 19-year-old has had a wonderful start to his NBA career, but he couldn’t match it against the Nets, finishing with six points on ten shots and four turnovers. On Tuesday, Giddey and OKC will face the Miami Heat, while Mills and the Nets will face the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday.

Regardless of KD’s greatness translating to wins, Harden needs to step it up, this year he has been only an above-average player, till Kyrie is out, it is the former leading scorer’s job to carry the team with KD and take some burden off of him.
