Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks
Last Sunday was another classic in the books, the battle of New York. This was an interesting one, on many occasions. First of, Kyrie Irving was not allowed to play due to the mandate rules, so he was sitting courtside and watching the game, which well, makes no sense. However fast forward to the game, overall it was pretty exciting and a close one. It ended up being 110-107 in favor of the Brooklyn Nets, where Kevin Durant ended up on 53 points, 9 assists and 6 rebounds in 43 minutes played. He pretty much won them the game, because he also hit a late 3 dagger to seal it.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Brooklyn Nets
This game was the game everybody was excited for because of all the drama between James Harden – Ben Simmons trade and so on. The crowd did not disappoint, it was super loud and Ben Simmons did get his boo’s despite being on the bench. However, the game was pretty one-sided. Brooklyn Nets ended up winning 129-100 where they completely dominated The Philadelphia 76ers on both ends. This was the first loss for the Sixers where they played with a fully healthy lineup (5-1). We hope that if these teams meet in the playoffs, we will get a more competitive game so it lives up to the drama and hype.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Minnesota Timberwolves
This might have not been an exciting game in terms of the match-up, however, what was exciting was Karl Anthony Towns proving that he might be the best shooting Center in the league (also all-time). He had 60 points (!!), 17 rebounds, 3 assists in 36 minutes played. He set a franchise record of 60 points, and also a season-high record, now being above Trae Young and Lebron James who both had 56. He could’ve easily gotten more points, however, the coach thought it was best to let him rest for the final minutes after that outstanding performance.
