Brooklyn Nets Match Preview
Although the Nets were counted as one of the favorites to win the NBA this year, they have been left stunned by the performance of their opponent and it looks like an early exit for Steve Nash’s side. KD and Kyrie Irving have been kept shut for almost all the 3 games in the playoff tie and the only plan for the Nets’ other players would be to take attention off them and also must cope with the defense which has been the problem for them all season long.

Jason has been in a breathtaking form all season long and last game was no different as he notched up 39 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists which ensured a great win for his team. He will be looking to carry this run of form and take his team to the next round.
Although Kevin “Darantula” Durant was kept quiet for almost the entire match as he managed to shoot the ball only 11 times, he will be ready for redemption and will no doubt be hungry to prove himself. With an average of 29.9 points per game this season, it’s a no brainer to expect a great match from KD today.
Bruce Brown is rather the only one in the Nets team who has managed to keep his team in this playoff tie after getting 23 points and 26 points in Game 2 and 3 respectively. It will be interesting to see how he shapes up for his most important game of the season.
