    Brooklyn’s “Big Three” has been more of a “Pick Two” throughout the 2020-21 season. Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving have only played in seven games together since Harden joined the Nets in January. Just when it seemed the stars would finally align for Brooklyn with Durant on his way back to the court, Harden went down with an injury, preventing coach Steve Nash from putting out his best lineup.

    The Brooklyn Nets take on the New York Knicks in an important game tonight. For the Nets, they have been one of the best teams in the NBA this season. Despite missing Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving have carried the team to one of the best records in the NBA.

    The Nets’ impressive backcourt was decimated, and that was before James Harden suffered a neck injury. Tyler Johnson — in the midst of his most efficient season in years — will surely be asked to step up when his number is called by Nets coach Steve Nash. But he knows that doesn’t mean trying to step into Harden’s MVP-sized shoes. “Steve and I haven’t really talked about minutes per se, but it’s a game-to-game basis,” Johnson said before the Nets tipped off a three-game road trip Tuesday in Portland. “I think right now during this little stretch while we’ve got some guys out, we don’t fully know what it is we’re going to do right away. “So, I’ll be ready to play when my number’s called, and sometimes it might be somebody else’s turn to get a lot of minutes.

    Two teams which are at two opposite ends of the spectrum are scheduled to face each other. On one side, we have the Brooklyn Nets, who are standing second in the Eastern Conference with an outstanding 27-13 record. On the other side are the Indiana Pacers, looking lost, trying to find their momentum at the tenth spot with a 17-21 record. The Nets will look to extend their winning streak to six games against the mediocre Pacers. And the Pacers, who have won just three of their last ten matchups, will hope for a miracle to come out victorious against one of the best teams in the league right now. Brooklyn Nets injury updates and lineup prediction The last time the Brooklyn Nets locked horns with the Pacers, they defeated them 104-94. Since then, the Nets have been unstoppable.

From injuries to quarantine to personal leave, Harden, Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving have averaged just over a start per week together. They haven’t played together since an impressive Feb. 2 win over the Clippers, but the trio hopes to be reunited Saturday, when Durant is expected to make his return to Golden State. The terrific trio have looked good on the court together (they’re 4-1 as starters), but the Nets are waiting for the day when...
    Getty Images James Harden high-fives Kevin Durant of the Brooklyn Nets. For the second time in January, a member of the Brooklyn Nets has been named Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

    The Brooklyn Nets are yet to employ their ‘Big 3’ on the court, and the moment will soon come to treat NBA fans. Kyrie Irving has been the missing piece in the puzzle, and his comeback will make the Nets a tougher force to reckon with!  James Harden and Kevin Durant have joined forces, and their impact is already taking the league by storm. However, fans are eagerly awaiting Kyrie to join his teammates and bolster the Nets’ offense.  Steve Nash comments on the return timetable of Kyrie Irving Kyrie Irving got off to an energetic start to the 2021 campaign, but things quickly turned wild.

    Brooklyn’s Big Three was still a man down Saturday, but Kevin Durant and debutant James Harden were already dominant. When Kyrie Irving gets back and the Nets get in sync, Harden warned that will be time for foes to really get scared. “Once we go through every scenario — and it’s only maybe four or five that teams can really do against us, and throughout the course of the year that’s going to happen — once we figure out, ‘OK they’re doing this tonight, this is how we attack it,’ or ‘they’re doing this tonight, this is how we attack it,’ once we get that it’s basically up to us,” Harden said after the first 30-point triple-double debut in NBA history. “I’m so excited for Ky to get back. He’s a key piece to what we’re trying to do. The chemistry, the sooner we can build that, the sooner we...
    An NBA super-team comes with its own pros and cons. It can improve the chances of winning a championship, but it can also lead to ego clashes. The Brooklyn Nets will soon face one such situation when both James Harden and Kyrie Irving join Kevin Durant in his bid to win a title with the Nets side.  James Harden played his first game with the Brooklyn Nets on Jan 16. He added a 32-point triple-double while Kevin Durant scored 42 points in their win against the Orlando Magic. Soon, Kyrie will join them and it will be on Steve Nash to figure out the combination he wants to use them in.  Will Kevin Durant still be able to score big? KD has been outstanding this season. He has scored 25 or more points in every but one outing until now. He is averaging close to 30 points, 7+ boards,...

The star Nets point guard has been fined $50,000 by the NBA for attending a private indoor party last weekend, the league announced Friday, and will forfeit additional salary for games missed because of the resulting five-day quarantine period.

    Nets general manager Sean Marks is confident Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden will jell as they work toward a “common goal.” Questions have been asked about whether the three stars can work together, but Marks sounded convinced that they will. “These guys have given us the right answers. They’ve said, hey, they want to play together, they can see this fitting,” Marks told a news conference Thursday after the Nets confirmed they had completed Harden from the Rockets in a blockbuster four-team trade.

    James Harden got what he wanted by getting traded to the Brooklyn Nets, but his new tax bill might not excite him. James Harden wanted to be traded by the Houston Rockets, with the Brooklyn Nets as a preferred destination from the beginning. He got his way on Wednesday, as what ultimately became a four-team trade was done. At the salary level Harden is at, $41.3 million this year and $44.3 million next year with a $47.4 million option for 2022-23, he’s not exactly hurting if he’s even remotely responsible with his money. But the move from Houston to Brooklyn stands to cost him plenty. Harden turned down a two-year, $103 million contract extension from the Rockets, which would have been been tacked on to the money he’s already got coming over the next three years. The pesky salary cap prevents the Nets from being able to do that kind...
    As the Nets were closing in on the deal for James Harden, general manager Sean Marks wanted to know if his two superstars really wanted to share the stage — not to mention the ball — with a third. Marks said Thursday that both Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving told him what he needed to hear, so he pulled the trigger on the blockbuster deal that landed the NBA's three-time scoring champion in Brooklyn. "They understand what’s at stake here," Marks said. "Everybody’s raised their hands and said, ‘Look, we’re in. We know what we’re shooting for’ and that includes James, the new player.

    Well, it’s a pretty simple equation for the Nets now. There is only one end result that can possibly justify what they did Wednesday afternoon. They must win an NBA championship.

    James Harden is reportedly okay with staying in Houston after months of rumors.

With the Rockets believed to be demanding a star in any deal, the Nets could (and most likely would) consider bringing in a third team.
