During the Brooklyn Nets-Milwaukee Bucks preseason game, a wild graphic comparing Kevin Durant and Jordan Nwora as the ‘key matchup’ goes viral.
On Friday night, reigning champions Milwaukee Bucks were hosted by a Kevin Durant-led Brooklyn Nets team at the Barclays Center. Not only were the champs playing without the likes of Finals MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo, they even had Jrue Holiday, Khris Middleton, Brook Lopez, Rodney Hood and many other integral role players sidelined. Meanwhile, the Nets played without Kyrie Irving who was ineligible because of the state’s vaccination policies.
Much to everyone’s surprise, it was a pretty well-fought and action-packed game. A game that saw 8 ties and 24 lead changes, ended with the home team taking the 119-115 win.
It was an outstanding outing for Bucks’ Jordan Nwora who had a 30-point performance, with 8 rebounds on 60% shooting from downtown. However, was shadowed by KD’s performance. The Durantula put up a team-high 18 points on an efficient 35.7/40/85.7 shooting split, to go along with 6 rebounds, 3 assists and a game-high +/- of +15.
