The Brooklyn Nets were totally embarrassed during their first game of the regular season on Tuesday evening in Milwaukee against the Bucks.
The game was the first of the NBA season for all 30 teams, and the Nets came out with everyone watching on nation television and lost by 23-points.
This was also the same Bucks team that had eliminated them in the playoffs last season.
Overall, the game was a very poor showing from the Nets.
However, on Friday evening the Nets had another road game against the Philadelphia 76ers, and this time played a much better game.
They ended up winning 114-109, and the performance was impressive considering just how bad they looked in their first game.
Kevin Durant was nothing short of sensational against the 76ers.
He led the team in points, rebounds and assists.
The 29 points, 15 rebounds and 12 assists also gave him a triple-double on the evening.
The Nets will play their third game of the season against the Charlotte Hornets on Sunday, which is their first game in Brooklyn this season.
