Brooklyn put on an even better show yesterday.
In the Nets’ 123-109 win over the Cavaliers, Brooklyn had a highlight play befitting the Harlem Globetrotters.
Mike James made a leaping pass breakup. Blake Griffin caught the deflection and, in one swoop, made a behind-the-back outlet pass. Irving caught that and quickly passed ahead to a streaking James. James threw the ball off the backboard. Durant flew in for a thunderous dunk.
The play was so fun, those involved were still buzzing when describing it after the game:
"My instinct was to throw it off the glass, but I was a little bit nervous because if it would've been bad, I think my Nets career as a player might've been over."@KDTrey5, @blakegriffin23 and @TheNatural_05 break down 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 play 🎙 pic.twitter.com/eYxoCCKjm8
