James Harden had 20 points.
“We weren’t very good,” Steve Nash shared. “If you’re not playing at a high level against the champs, you’re not going to win.”
Kyrie Irving did not play for the Nets today because of his refusal to get a vaccine against the lethal virus, the COVID-19.
The Nets have decided that he would not play or practice with the team until he is going to be fully vaccinated instead of using him only in the road games.
