NBA Twitter reacts to Nets allowing 136 points in loss to Timberwolves

·2 min read

The Brooklyn Nets’ offense continues to click with Kyrie Irving in the rotation, but the team’s continual defensive issues overshadowed their work on the other end of the floor in a 136-125 loss on the road in Minnesota.

The Nets allowed the Timberwolves to score at least 30 points in every quarter, and allowed 72 points in the first half alone. The trio of D’Angelo Russell, Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns each scored 20+ points and combined for 70, and six Timberwolves scored in double figures.

Irving led the Nets with 30 points, but James Harden had an off night as a scorer, shooting just 4-for-13 from the field to finish with 13 points and 13 assists.

Here are highlights and reaction from Sunday’s loss:
