Brooklyn Wins Eastern Conference Shootout Against Bucks 125-123

Harden, KD attribute historic start with Nets to experience

Without Kyrie Irving, this team escaped a tough Giannis Antetokounmpo who 34 points and 12 rebounds wasn't enough to lift them over the Nets. That is the second-most combined points for teammates in their first two games together with a franchise in National Basketball Association history, after Wilt Chamberlain and York Larese had 151 with the Philadelphia Warriors in 1961.

"We were young in Oklahoma City", said Harden, 31, who played with Durant, 32, on the Thunder from 2009 to 2012.

"We were young in Oklahoma City", Harden said of the chemistry now versus back in Oklahoma City. "We are grown men now".

James Harden scored 34 points, and Kevin Durant's 30 included the go-ahead three-pointer in the final minute as the NBA's new-look Brooklyn Nets beat the Milwaukee Bucks 125-123 on Monday.

"And then for me, I sit back and I know what player Kevin Durant is. He's one of the best players to ever touch a basketball", per ESPN.

"I think we can still learn a lot from it".

Tiley said quarantine costs may exceed A$40 million, part of which would be covered by the state government of Victoria. Kyrgios also criticized Vanessa Sierra , the reality TV star and girlfriend of player Bernard Tomic who's in isolation.

In addition to posting that record, the Nets also pulled off a blockbuster trade, acquiring superstar guard James Harden from the Houston Rockets via a three-team trade last week.

"It's a huge win for us", Harden said.

Kyrie Irving missed his seventh straight game after leaving the team for personal reasons, with coach Steve Nash saying he could return Wednesday in Cleveland. So while a game against Giannis Antetokounmpo's Milwaukee Bucks - a team challenging for an National Basketball Association title just like Brooklyn - is certainly a measuring-stick game, it's a game you take with a grain of salt being so early into the season.

Milwaukee had its four-game winning streak snapped to fall to 9-5.

The reigning league MVP shot just 2-of-6 from downtown, and his co-star Khris Middleton scored 25 points, but missed all five of his attempts from deep.

The Nets didn't practice Sunday and Nash said they would likely do little more than watch film and walk through some plays on Tuesday, but would try to have Irving work out on the court against some teammates.
