The Brooklyn Nets are one of the NBA’s biggest stories right now, with the newly assembled “Big Three” still figuring out how to best play together.
With questions about how they will share the ball, and about their potential on defense, nobody quite knows what the future holds in store.
But on Tuesday night, Brooklyn made a powerful statement with their most impressive feat yet: a 124-120 win over the L.A.Clippers, with KD, Kyrie, and Harden combining to score 90 points.
After the game, tons of reactions were posting, including by Magic Johnson and Kendrick Perkins (notorious Lakers supporters).
Brooklyn Nets’ Big 3 came to play tonight; Kyrie with 39 points, KD with 28, and James Harden with 23. The Nets defeated the Clippers in an exciting game 124-120!

Stop overthinking it.

Kevin Durant, Best Player on the Planet, scored 28 on just 13 shots. 11 of 13! He obviously didn’t at all mind a hot-handed Kyrie took 10 more shots. AND HARDEN HAD ANOTHER TRIPLE DOUBLE. 14 MORE ASSISTS. RUNAWAY NBA ASSIST LEADER. THIS IS WHY THE NETS WILL WORK. #NothingButNets

Damn near every Net game feels like a game of the year candidate.

Have seen enough now to officially confess I couldn’t have been more wrong about Harden. Went from that maddening iso game in Houston to Mr. Triple-Double as a Net. Love watching the way he runs the show.

Nets avoided a Washington-type collapse.
Late game execution has been far from perfect & that includes the coaching staff. Had 2 timeouts and neither was called amidst the run.
Still, Brooklyn has defeated: Bucks, 76ers, Celtics, Jazz, Nuggets and now the Clippers.

Following a disappointing loss to the Wizards, tonight was a huge win for the Nets, who are now undefeated against the league’s top teams.
While there are still some significant flaws, this team is flashing its potential, and the entire NBA has officially been put on notice.
