James of the Nets out with a stiff left knee hypertext


PORTLAND, Ore. – When the Nets go out on the road – and as a result Kyrie returns to Irving – they lose James Harden.

Harden was ruled out of Monday’s game in Portland with a left knee hyper extension. LaMarcus Aldridge also had a right ankle injury against the Trail Blazers.

The Nets have only played once with the Big 3 all season in Irving’s debut season in Indiana last week. Harden and Kevin Durant were expected to play for the second time Monday after coach Steve Nash said they were expected to play despite Sunday’s key minutes in Sunday’s home win over San Antonio.

The Nets were in first place two weeks ago, but have forgotten what came out. It was not the benefit of having a three-star and was a fantastic offense last season. It was a blue collar protection.

“We are trying to re-identify ourselves after the COVID interruption. We’ve taken a step back defensively after getting them all back, ”Nash said.

“It’s different because we were one of the best offensive teams historically last year. We’re coming into this season and it’s not. To try to identify with the other side of the ball that brought us success, even if it was a success, do we clearly identify with it?”

“So we have to build the identity we have and accept that we are a defensive team. We are winning with our defense. That is the process we are going through. We are just relaunching now. Let’s not forget how we won all these games in the first part of the season.

Playing Monday in Portland after Sunday’s home win is one of the toughest back-to-backs Nash has ever seen.

I don’t remember all the back-to-backs I’ve ever played, but I don’t remember any six-hour flights and all that stuff between back-to-back and three-hour time zones. So it’s different, ”Nash said. We have to take it as an opportunity, a chance to succeed in a hostile situation.

Monday was the second leg of a brutal four-game series in five days, with matches scheduled for Wednesday in Chicago and home games against the Thunder on Thursday. It’s a log of 4,892 miles, but Nash didn’t want to use it as an alibi.

“I’m very hesitant to forgive. We need to attack it,” he said. So I am very skeptical, especially when we are facing a bit of adversity here, any kind of excuses or any kind of ‘oops is me.’

“We need to get down to business and play hard and play well and play together and build from day to day.”
