Kevin Durant is back for the Brooklyn Nets. He’ll suit up on Sunday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Great. Kyrie Irving, however, won’t be suiting up. Not great.

Brooklyn is coming off a pretty bad loss to the Grizzlies on Friday, one night after beating the 76ers in what seemed like an improbable win.

The Thunder remain in town after beating the Knicks at MSG on Friday night.

WHO: Brooklyn Nets (5-5) vs. Oklahoma City Thunder (4-4)


WHERE: YES Network (tv), WCBS (radio)

Game Preview.

Player to watch: Shai Gilgeous-Alexander

Now that SGA is the man running the show in Oklahoma City, he’s having to do more on offense. He’s getting to the rim a bit less and taking more three pointers and it hasn’t affected his numbers too much. As expected he’s got more ballhandling responsibilities and his assists have gone up (turnovers too but that’s to be expected for a player getting their first shot at running the show). He’s one of the more promising young players in the NBA and as OKC looks to rebuild and figure out what their team will look like in the future, SGA’s continued development will go a long way in determining which direction they go.
