The Nets are cruising through the NBA like Black Adam, annihilating everyone in their path. They have won 15 of their last 16 games, including a 123-106 victory over Charlotte on Saturday night. The KD-Kyrie experiment appears to be reaching its full potential.
Joe Harris (knee) is expected to play against the Spurs on Monday.
Harris said on Saturday that he was feeling better and hoped to return to the lineup on Monday. His official probable designation brings him one step closer to that result. Harris is expected to return to the Nets’ bench, but he could see some action if players in the regular starting lineup sit.
Kevin Durant has scored at least 20 points in 11 games in a row, and the star forward continues to deliver night after night for a sizzling Brooklyn team. Durant was excellent in the month that just closed out and is thriving as an elite scoring threat for a Nets team that has been scorching hot in recent weeks. He averaged 28.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 1.0 blocks per game in December.
