Brooklyn Nets' did not hold enough firepower without Kevin Durant to see off Cleveland Cavaliers. The 114-107 misfortune to Cleveland Cavaliers yet did see Kyle Kuzma at his best. Without Durant, Nets did not have anyone to make the hotshot, grab the critical bounce back or assume control over as he's done on many occasions for Brooklyn.
Cavs took advantage of the absence of the star and Darius Garland reinforced his All-Star case with 22 points and 12 assists as the Cavs fixed a fifth-consecutive success. Playing his fourth match for the Nets, Kyrie Irving scored 27 points while James Harden added 22 for Brooklyn, who were playing their first game since Durant, the NBA's driving scorer, who hyper-extended his left knee and is sidelined for a while.
