The Brooklyn Nets fell to the Los Angeles Lakers 116-103 on Sunday. Lakers forward Anthony Davis had a wonderful game as he scored 37 points and collected 18 rebounds while Nets forward Kevin Durant had a near triple-double of 31 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists.
The Nets are now 6-8 and visit the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday to try to start another winning streak. The Lakers came into Sunday’s game with a five-game losing streak, but was able to overpower the Nets in the fourth quarter behind Davis’ monster effort and guard Lonnie Walker IV’s 25 points.
NBA twitter gave their reactions to Sunday’s game between the Brooklyn Nets and the Los Angeles Lakers:
The Nets need to start finding new ways to get KD the ball. The post-ups are far too predictable.

More offensive rebounds than the Nets as a team. pic.twitter.com/CDzJtv2vR2

Should be no excuses for Nets tonight. Back to back should not enter the conversation against a 2-10 team without LeBron.
Brooklyn did not bring the effort needed tonight.

Jacque Vaughn is hopeful Claxton's eye contusion can heal by Tuesday. Ben Simmons' status more up in the air to see how his knee feels. #Nets

Jacque Vaughn said the delay of game, the second one, came from the team being up off the bench when Kevin Durant brought up the ball up. The Theo Pinson rule struck the team.
