Durant 44 points exploded, Brooklyn failed to win 13 games in a row. However, Brooklyn’s status has changed.
Kevin Durant exploded 44 points, but the Brooklyn Nets’ 13-game winning streak was thwarted.
Brooklyn lost 112 to 121 to the Chicago Bulls in the 2022-2023 season NBA regular league away game held at the Chicago United Center on the 4th.
Ace Kevin Durant (44 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists) struggled, and Kyrie Irving (25 points, 4 rebounds, 8 assists) also played his part.
Stephen Curry’s brother Seth Curry also fought hard: 22 points as he scored six 3-pointers. However, it was not enough in defense.
For the Chicago Bulls, Dermadrojan and Patrick Williams scored 22 points each. Nikola Vucevic scored 21 points and 13 rebounds. All the main players scored double digits. For Brooklyn, Jack Rabin (13 points) blocked well, but it was painful to allow Williams and Do Soon-moo (17 points).
Brooklyn, which was trailing by three points until the third quarter, allowed Do Soon-moo three runs and a dunk shot. Subsequent runs to Drojan. In the end, he knelt down in the fourth quarter.
However, Brooklyn gained a lot in its 12-game winning streak. For now, Durant and Irving’s strong one-two punch system has been established. With the two players at the center, Clexton under the goal and Ben Simmons played his part in internal and external defense, and Seth Curry, Joe Harris, and Watanabe Yuta also used Durant-Irving’s gravity well in the second unit. In addition, the defense, which was considered Brooklyn’s weakness, has developed dramatically. Team chemistry was established more accurately, and Winning mentality went up.
Brooklyn is 25-13 and ranked third in the East behind the Boston Celtics and Milwaukee Bucks. Brooklyn, once a “laugh candidate,” re-established his team’s status as the winning dark horse during his 12-game winning streak.
