The Brooklyn Nets concluded this year’s series against the Warriors with another blowout win over the ‘Dubs’. Draymond Green believes Brooklyn is the team to beat in the East.

In Kevin Durant’s return to the ‘Bay Area’, since he decided to join the Nets, Brooklyn decimated the Golden State team effortlessly.

(via CBS Sports):

“I think there are some other good teams in the East that poses a threat to them, but, they’re the team to beat in the East if you ask me,” Green said after the game.

“It’s my opinion. That doesn’t mean anything, but that’s my opinion, they’re definitely the team to beat in the East,” he continued.

That was just the seventh game where the Nets had all three of Durant, Harden and Irving in their starting lineup, with Steve Nash’s team being on 5-2 record in those contests.

Brooklyn moved to 16-12, good for third place in the Eastern Conference, after the win over the Warriors.
