Kevin Durant and James Harden Brooklyn Nets

How much can Durant and Harden do for Brooklyn Nets?

How the 82-game season will affect the Brooklyn Nets tandem Kevin Durant-James Harden explained to ESPN in the article.

We are preparing for the start of the new NBA season, and therefore we have a number of questions, such as the one about Ben Simmons or the Brooklyn Nets, which ESPN dealt with.

How will the 82 games season affect the James Harden-Kevin Durant tandem, how productive will the two of them be and what can we expect from them?

It is doubtful that Harden and Durant will be able to have statistically better numbers, but it will be interesting to see how the two of them will play together because they had a lot of problems with injuries last season.

Durant is a fantastic scorer, a man who can hit from anywhere and it doesn’t matter who keeps him, while James Harden is slowly accepting the role of playmaker and one should certainly expect a lack of productivity in the form of points scored.

It should be kept in mind that Kajri Irving is added to this tandem, who is also very good with a ball in his hands.

When Durant was on the floor last season without Harden and Irving, he averaged a point per minute at 66% for 2 and 51% for 3 points, and this figure sounds almost superhuman.

When Harden and Irving were with him, Durant had the ball in his hands 5% less, so his so-called “usage” dropped from 34% to 29% and at PER 36 minutes he has 29.3 points which is the second-best performance in his career.

KD was at best in the 2013/14 NBA season when he was the MVP.

The regular part of the season is less important for the Nets, they focused on the playoffs. They will also make sure that their players are healthy for the playoffs and that they avoid any unpleasant situation and weakening of the roster.

We have seen that their attacking power is extremely great, just to be served by their health.
