Will Kevin Durant win another NBA Championship Ring this season?
Three games deep onto his first-round series, if is painfully clear that the Boston Celtics are running an advanced Auerbach-ian clinic at the Brooklyn Nets expense. They have better coaching, better defense, better offense, better chemistry, better balance, better everything.
Maybe Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets will avoid the sweep, put off the inevitable in Game 4, and send this series back to Boston. Maybe Ben Simmons will even put on a uniform and score a basket or two.
The Nets just got hit with a Tyson Fury uppercut in their 109-103 defeat Saturday night at Barclays Center, and are staggering straight toward elimination. No NBA team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit, and history will not be made over the next week. This has been a complete embarrassment for the Nets, who didn’t put up any more of a fight in Game 3 in Brooklyn than they did in the second half of Game 2 in Boston.
Brooklyn Nets coach Steve Nash cited Boston Celtics’s size and his own team’s fatigue in breaking down the mismatch, saying that Durant was tired from playing too many minutes, and that Kyrie Irving was tired from his Ramadan fasting. Blake Griffin became the second Brooklyn Nets player to confirm publicly that the Boston Celtics are the more cohesive team. Kevin Durant criticized himself for “thinking too much, to be honest, this whole series.”
So lets see how this play-off goes and hopefully Kevin Durant can pull some miracle and come back from the deficit to beat the history.
