Durant, Nets log 4th straight win

NEW YORK (AFP) — The Brooklyn Nets cruised to their fourth straight National Basketball Association victory on Monday as Kevin Durant’s 30 points fueled a 112-100 win over the Wizards in Washington.

The Nets, who battled through early season struggles that saw coach Steve Nash sacked then dealt with the suspension of Kyrie Irving in an anti-Semitism row, have now won eight of their last nine games.

“We’re building something,” Durant said.

“We’ve got to keep finetuning.”

Durant said the Nets’ recent strong run owed something to seven straight games at home, and also to the fact that a few opponents were shorthanded.

But he added: “For the most part, I like the brand of basketball we played on both ends of the court.”

“Regardless of who was on the floor, we still played our system.”

The Nets led by double digits for much of the second half, holding the Wizards to 45 points after the interval.

Durant added nine rebounds and six assists and Irving chipped in 24 points as the Nets dealt the Wizards a seventh straight defeat.
