The Brooklyn Nets saw Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving sharing the floor for the first time since they joined the franchise last offseason.
The two superstars were a destructive offensive force for the time they were playing together, combining for 33 points. Irving put up 18 points in 17 minutes to lead the Nets to the 119-114 win over the Washington Wizards.
(via Bleacher Report):
“Kyrie looked incredible,” Durant said after Sunday’s preseason game, per Joe Vardon of The Athletic. “He’s unstoppable, he’s a master of his craft. He can pretty much do whatever he wants out on the floor.”
Durant finished the contest with 15 points starting the game with a thunderous dunk. That was his first basket in an NBA game in 552 days.
If both Durant and Irving remain healthy this season, the Nets are going to be one of the top teams in the Eastern Conference.
