NBA Twitter reacts to Nets’ bounce-back win over Raptors

The Brooklyn Nets‘ regular season got off to a rough start with a lopsided home loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, but the Nets rebounded with their first win of the season on Friday night against Toronto.

Kevin Durant (27) and Kyrie Irving (30) combined for 57 in a close game throughout, while Ben Simmons added six points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in 32 minutes of play. Steve Nash said after the game that Simmons was “starting to show the player he can be” for Brooklyn.

Pascal Siakam led all scorers with 37 points and every Raptors starter scored in double figures, but it wasn’t enough to overcome the Nets, who held on for a 109-105 win.

Here’s what players and fans had to say after the game.
