Brooklyn, we have a problem.
After Kevin Durant and James Harden were the only two Nets players to score in double figures Sunday in another tough outing, Durant said Brooklyn is not losing confidence amid a 1-2 start and has enough to win without Kyrie Irving. Durant was asked twice if he thinks the Nets have enough to win without their starting point guard, especially when things get tough in games.
“While we are playing in a game, I am not going to sit there and say … when we get down or it is a tight game, like ‘Damn, we don’t have enough,'” Durant said. “We are not going to be thinking about [that] during the game. We definitely want Kyrie Irving out here on the floor. And he is a huge part of what we do. But it is not happening right now. So we got to figure it out.
“But no one is going to lose confidence while we playing and hope Kyrie comes to save us during the game. No, we got to play. Everybody here is confident in what they do. We just got to play.”

“Yeah,” Durant repeatedly answered when asked if the Nets have enough to win. “I am not about to say there’s not going to [be] enough out here. I am not going to say that. I feel like we had a nice control of the game in the first half. They played a better second half.
“It’s three games in. Of course we have enough.”

Whether they’d like to admit it or not, the Nets need Kyrie. He’s one of the best players in the league…
They won’t win this season without their big three intact.
