Brooklyn, down seven gamers as a result of COVID-19, relied closely on Durant’s 34 factors, 13 rebounds and 11 assists within the victory. But Bayless used his reward for Durant as a possibility to take a shot on the Lakers’ LeBron James. Los Angeles, amid a two-game win streak, didn’t play on Tuesday.
