Kevin Durant addressed the absence of Kyrie Irving and James Harden from Game 5 vs the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday.

Durant said the Nets will stick to their game plan, but wished he could play alongside his good friends and fellow superstars.

“I feel more for them than for me. It’s got nothing to do with me. I wish my brothers were out there playing, I wish they were healthy.

The rest of the guys who are out there healthy enough to play, we gotta come out there and play as hard as we can with possession.

That’s always been the mindset for us every day is to play focused and disciplined basketball. Nothing changes, but we wish our brothers were out there,” Durant said about Irving and Harden, via Bleacher Report.

Durant and the Nets will try to take the lead again, as the series is currently tied after four games (2-2).
