NBA Analysis Network

Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets (32-33) will take on LaMelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets (32-33) in part of the NBA Tuesday slate.

While the Nets still remain optimistic about their title contention outlook for this season, the losses have been piling up. This will be among the games Kyrie Irving will be available to play in the lineup given the Nets will be playing on the road.

Irving still has not received clarity regarding his status to play home games, so it’s especially important Brooklyn takes care of business when he is in the lineup.

The Hornets have struggled as of late but have won two consecutive games and are winners in three of their last five games.
