With the knee injury he suffered Kevin Durant, which will sideline him for a couple of weeks, Brooklyn Nets must depend in that period of the 2021-22 season on the NBA from james harden and the one recently started in the year, Kyrie Irving, which can even play at home at the Barclays Center, if the franchise pays a small fine per game.
In this way, it is a great opportunity to see the companions of the great figure that is KD. Time for them to develop a good chemistry. In the victory against San Antonio Spurs this friday for 117 to 102, both stood out and shined.
The Beard ended with 37 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists to be the highlight of the match, while his partner had 24 units, 3 rebounds and 4 assists, and he didn’t need to do more than that. While Irving wasn’t comfortable with his attacking game, Harden had a different take.
When he was on the bench, the point guard said that his teammates supported him and told him to be patient, but according to Uncle Drew at a press conference after the match, Kyrie imitated the guard who did not want him to be patient, but quite the opposite:
James Harden and an encouragement for Kyrie Irving
“I was trying to get out of their way, and then I went to the bench and I felt like I took shots that weren’t necessary or I couldn’t put myself in my places the way I would have liked and the bench supported me like they always do. the time would come. And then James just yelled at me, not in a negative way, but he was like, ‘Ky, get the damn ball!’“, Irving said, imitating his partner and friend.
