Oddly enough, Kevin Durant’s two performances against the Golden State Warriors have been among his lowest-scoring games of the 2020-21 season. He scored 22 in Brooklyn’s opening night win, and finished with 20 in the Nets’ trip to California on Saturday. But, in both instances, the Nets have won — most recently by a score of 134-117. Kyrie Irving led the Nets this time around with 23 points and James Harden had 19.

So, how did the Nets manage to put up 134 points when their big three only accounted for 62 of them? With the exception of Noah Vonleh in his three minutes of action, every Net who took the floor scored at least eight points, with Jeff Green leading Saturday’s reserves with 14.

As for Brooklyn’s other two starters, Joe Harris had 15 points and Bruce Brown went off for 18 — making Saturday’ win over the Warriors the first time all five Nets starters scored 15-plus points in a regulation game since April 16, 1999, per ESPN.

The Starting lineup from that game: Stephon Marbury, Kendall Gill, Scott Burrell, Keith Van Horn and Jamie Feick.
