Kevin Durant and Steve Nash addressed the Brooklyn Nets lack of continuity following their 124-118 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden have only played seven games together this season. The Nets are 7-8 when Durant and Irving play without Harden.
“That is a huge factor. Continuity is a big thing in this league,” said Durant after the game.
Nash agreed with Durant’s assessment, saying the team must make up that gap in experience.
“We’ve got a gap to make up here. We understand that’s a team that’s been running the same offense, been playing together, same schemes on defense for years now. Gone deep into the playoffs, and that’s something we don’t have, so how can we make up that gap?” said Nash.
The Nets are currently 1.5 out of first place in the Eastern Conference.
Durant added that the Nets will have to rely upon their veteran leadership down the stretch.
“We got veterans on this team that played in different situations that know pretty much every terminology that goes on in this league and every kind of set that we run on both sides. That’s in our advantage as well, having that veteran leadership but we still are a connected group.”
