Brooklyn’s first five vs. Warriors did something no Nets starting group has since 1999
Unusually enough, Kevin Durant’s 2 efficiencies versus the Golden State Warriors have actually been amongst his lowest-scoring video games of the 2020-21 season. He scored 22 in Brooklyn’s opening night win, and completed with 20 in the Webs’ journey to California on Saturday. However, in both circumstances, the Webs have actually won — most just recently by a rating of 134-117. Kyrie Irving led the Webs this time around with 23 points and James Harden had 19.
So, how did the Webs manage to put up 134 points when their big three only accounted for 62 of them? With the exception of Noah Vonleh in his three minutes of action, every Net who took the floor scored at least eight points, with Jeff Green leading Saturday’s reserves with 14.
As for Brooklyn’s other two starters, Joe Harris had 15 points and Bruce Brown went off for 18 — making Saturday’ win over the Warriors the first time all five Webs beginners scored 15-plus points in a guideline video game because April 16, 1999, per ESPN.
The Beginning lineup from that video game: Stephon Marbury, Kendall Gill, Scott Burrell, Keith Van Horn and Jamie Feick.
