It appears the Brooklyn Nets team many know from last season doesn’t exist any longer. The team that is playing currently has a chip on their shoulder. The Brooklyn Nets just ran up the score in the first half of Wednesday’s night game against the Golden State Warriors. Although the Warriors didn’t have their best player, Steph Curry, nobody expected this outcome. In the first half, the Nets managed to score 91 points, which is the most in franchise history, according to AP News.
The Nets led the Warriors, 91-51, without Curry, Klay Thompson, and Andrew Wiggins playing. Even if these three players, the stretch the Nets went on was unfathomable. Brooklyn shot 35 for 49 (71.4%) in the opening 24 minutes. The biggest takeaway here for the Brooklyn Nets is All-NBA SF Kevin Durant. He simply is remarkable and took over this game and put it to rest before the game was even started. The team that set the NBA record for most points in a half was the Phoenix Suns scoring 107 points in the first half against the Denver Nuggets in 1990.
