Kevin Durant

Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets lost their first home game of the season on Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn at Barclays Center. 

The Nets fell to 1-2 after the Charlotte Hornets spoiled their home-opener 111-95. 

Even with former part-owner Jay-Z in attendance and the excitement from the crowd to see their star-studded team for the first time all season, they lost by double-digits.

LaMelo Ball had 18 points, five rebounds and five assists, but it was the play of Miles Bridges that was the surprise. 

The former Michigan State star went off for 32 points and nine rebounds.

The rest of the Nets starting lineup had only 30 points. 

"It's three games in, of course we've got enough," Durant said after the game.

The Nets are still obviously missing their seven-time All-Star Kyrie Irving, but even with Durant and James Harden they have not looked good to start the new season. 

  • WOJ SAYS THE NETS HAVE TAKEN CALLS FOR IRVING: Kyrie Irving has yet to play for the Brooklyn Nets this season due to the vaccine mandate and the Nets not allowing him to be a part-time player.

    ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Friday that the Nets have taken calls for Irving. However, he said they have not made any calls themselves. CLICK HERE.

  • WHY IS STEPH NOT IN THE BEST PLAYER IN THE WORLD CONVERSATION? The Golden State Warriors look fantastic to start the new season and are now 3-0. The biggest reason they look so good is that Steph Curry is sensational. The two-time MVP looks like he could be making a run at another MVP this season. When they get Klay Thomson back, this team has a chance to make some noise. CLICK HERE.
