James Harden got a double-double, scoring 25 points and dishing 16 assists. Kyrie Irving couldn’t find his shots tonight, going 4/10 from the field, scoring only 9 points.

After the game, James Harden was asked if the team believes Kyrie can play at home. He had a huge grin and joked that he’d give Kyrie the shot.

The Nets look like a complete team wherever their big 3 play together. It remains to be seen whether the Nets’ Front Office would be okay to pay a fine in order to get their star back.
