The Brooklyn Nets don’t need a good defense


After defying the gigantic odds in a mind-blowing loss to the Wizards, the Nets bounced back with an impressive 124-120 victory against the Clippers on Tuesday. While the trio of Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving has been above all exciting to watch, they have also given up some absolutely incredible scoring numbers: 125 points for the Thunder, 149 points for the Wizards, 124 points for the Heat. Defense is the number one talking point when it comes to Brooklyn, and improvement in that regard is something that coach Steve Nash and the players have answered questions about after almost every game and practice. And yet, after watching the Nets shooting down the stretch against the Clippers, I think it’s a lot more fun to wonder if Brooklyn can win a championship without stopping anyone.
