The second game of the Brooklyn Nets James Harden experience came Monday night in a anticipated matchup with the Milwaukee Bucks and two-time league MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo. All of the stars showed up as expected, Giannis had a near triple-double with 34 points , 12 rebounds and 7 assists on 50% FG. James Harden matched Antetokounmpo’s output with 34 points of his own, to go along with 12 assists and 6 rebounds on 13/25 from the floor. Kevin Durant chipped in with 30 but it was his last three of the evening that proved to be the biggest, a go ahead three-pointer with under a minute to go that put the Nets up for good, 125-123.
Now I wonder will Shannon Sharpe, who revels in the shortcomings of anyone not named Lebron James will discuss this with the same level of vigor that he did when both KD and Kyrie missed potential game winning jumpers a week ago?
