The Brooklyn Nets got crushed by the Golden State Warriors 117-99 in Brooklyn on Tuesday night at Barclays Center. 

Steph Curry and the Warriors improved to a 12-2 record, which is the best in the entire NBA, and the Nets fell to 10-5. 

On Wednesday, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith had strong words for Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving (hasn't played yet this season) and the Nets. 

A clip of Smith talking on ESPN's First Take can be seen embedded below from their Twitter account. 

"I actually hope Kyrie Irving gets cut," Smith said of Irving who hasn't played this season. "This is a disgrace, to sit up there and watch this team last night look like straight garbage." 

Smith also went on to talk about how Durant should want to leave the Nets. 

"I wouldn't blame KD if KD asked to be traded at the end of the season," Smith said. "I think he should asked to be traded."

The Nets advanced to 11-5 with their win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. 

  • KUZMA AND THE WIZARDS ARE ROLLING: The Washington Wizards traded Russell Westbrook before the start of the season and have a new-look roster. Yet, they look fantastic to start the season, and after they got their tenth win on Monday night over the New Orleans Pelicans, Kyle Kuzma tweeted about their winning streak. CLICK HERE.
  • STEPH AND THE WARRIORS ARE ON FIRE: The Golden State Warriors have not made the playoffs in two seasons, but that appears likely to change this season. They are on fire to start the season led by superstar guard Steph Curry and have the best record in the entire NBA. . CLICK HERE.
