NBA Twitter roasts Reggie Miller for suggesting Nets sit Kevin Durant, James Harden in Game 6 vs. Bucks

by MD Samsuzzaman Siyam

After the Nets defeated the Bucks on Tuesday night to pull ahead 3-2 in their best-of-seven series, Reggie Miller posed a question on Twitter about Brooklyn’s strategy ahead of Game 6.

What if the team elected to sit Kevin Durant and James Harden to make sure they’re well-rested ahead of Game 7? Miller cited Durant’s “heavy minutes” as a reason that the team should consider doing that.

Durant did play all 48 minutes against Milwaukee and became the first player to accomplish that feat since LeBron James did so during the 2018 playoffs with the Cavaliers. Meanwhile, Harden is still nursing a hamstring injury that made him questionable for Tuesday’s game.

However, fans, former players and even Velveeta let Miller know that they thought his idea was absurd.

It’s safe to assume that even despite heavy minutes, the Nets will not sit Durant and Harden in a potential series-clinching game against the Bucks. They may be veterans, and Harden may be dealing with an injury, but you simply don’t sit in the playoffs if you can get on the court.

It would make little sense to save them for a Game 7 that they could avoid playing with a Game 6 win.

As such, the two stars will look to carry their team to the Eastern Conference Finals with Kyrie Irving (ankle) sidelined.
