After the Nets lost to the Warriors 117-99 at home on Tuesday, Kevin Durant was asked about his missed shot attempts. The eleven-time All-Star said, “There’s some shots I wish I could have back. I rushed it. Once we get down 18 or 20, I was trying to get it back so fast and was taking bad shots. It’s all part of the journey and understanding what level you need to be at.” However, Durant’s performance is not the problem right now. The team needs Kyrie Irving, or other starters need to play better offensively.
