Following Kevin Durant’s incredible 42-point performance over the Pacers, Steve Nash gushed over how KD makes his job easier as a coach.
Behind the leadership of superstars Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving, the Brooklyn Nets are definitely one of the deadliest teams in the league. With the addition of Blake Griffin, the Nets only strengthened and deepened their bench.
Over the course of the season, Brooklyn has taken over the title of being the “favourites” to win the championship from reigning champions Los Angeles Lakers.
On Thursday night, the Nets were hosted by a Caris LeVert-led Indiana Pacers team at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Nets, who recently got KD back in their lineup, were definitely the expected team to win the match. Behind an impressive 42-point and 10-assists double-double performance, Brooklyn routed Indiana 130-113.
“I can put Kevin Durant in the game and good things just happen”: Steve Nash following the win
There is nothing better than what the coach Steve Nash could have asked for in his rookie season. He has the “luxury” of having generation type of players like KD, Irving and Durant on his team.
Following the win over the Pacers, Steve spoke about KD’s impressive efficiency in distributing the ball. He lauded the Slim Reaper:
Steve Nash on Kevin Durant’s passing (10 assists to just 2 turnovers): “What can I say? I’ve got the luxury of coaching Kevin Durant. I can just stick him in the game and good things happen.”

Despite Kevin Durant being sidelined with injuries for 36 games this season, the Nets have been absolutely terrific. With a whopping 43-20 record, Brooklyn has found themselves to be on top of the Eastern Conference. With the current red hot form the Nets have been playing at, they are definitely one of the frontrunners to win the championship.
