Brooklyn Nets schedule: It’s Kevin Durant’s turn to lead

The schedule heats up this week for the Brooklyn Nets with four games, two of which are road games against Eastern Conference contenders — the Philadelphia 76ers and Miami Heat.

Brooklyn is going to be shorthanded (surprise, surprise) as James Harden continues to nurse a hamstring strain and Kyrie Irving steps away from the team for personal reasons. That means Kevin Durant is the leading man for the time being.
