The Nets pound Boston, the Big Three slams an all-time record!

On the occasion of Game 4 between Nets and Celtics, New Yorkers had the opportunity to strike a blow by winning their third game of the series. This is what they did, well helped by a trio Kevin Durant – Kyrie Irving – James Harden doubly historic.

They were warned of the damage that the main enemy threat could cause. Deprived of Kemba Walker for Game 4 against the Nets, Jayson Tatum knew he would have to repeat a performance similar to that of his match 3 to bring his team back to score. His 40 points were not enough, however, the fault of too tough adversity this time around.

In front of the Boston superstar, Kevin Durant (42 points, 14/20 shooting), Kyrie Irving (39 points, 11 rebounds) and James harden (23 points, 18 assists) made sure to make his efforts in vain. They even did it in a smashing way, once again putting their names on the league’s tablets with this joint blast.

Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden together scored 104 points in their Sunday game against the Celtics. They equal the largest total of points accumulated by a trio in a playoff game in NBA history according to Elias Sports.

So far, only two triplets had managed to sign such a feat, namely Dominique Wilkins, Spud Webb and Randy Wittman with the 1986 Hawks, as well as John Havlicek, Jo Jo White and Dave Cowens with the 1973 Celtics. But the Big Three from Brooklyn didn’t settle for that, as he also emulated another iconic alloy from the past this Sunday.

The Nets became the second team in NBA history to field multiple scorers at 35 or more points in two straight games. They join the Los Angeles Lakers in 1962, when Elgin Baylor and Jerry West had achieved similar performances in two matches in a row.

After Harden in Game 3, it was Kyrie who came to support KD in the most beautiful way to give BKN a big 3-1 lead. No doubt, if the three accomplices continue to reign in this way on the floors of the postseason, neither the C’s, nor the other Eastern teams will be able to seek a place in the Finals.

Faced with a still impressive Jayson Tatum, the Nets made speak the hallucinatory strike force… and history of their Big 3. Difficult therefore for Boston to feed any regrets on this match.
