Durant and Harden hail 'seamless transition' after National Basketball Association record

The veterans became the first duo in National Basketball Association history Monday to score 30-plus points in each of their first two games with a franchise, according to ESPN's Malika Andrews.

Kyrie Irving did not play in Monday night's 125-123 win against the Milwaukee Bucks, marking the seventh consecutive game he missed as he continues to ramp up his on-court activity.

The league's COVID-19 safety protocols say that players are not allowed to go to bars, clubs and lounges or attend gatherings of 15 or more people.

"It was an easy transition, especially with James handling the ball a lot coming in".

"We're still trying to find our way and we've still got room to improve, but it's a solid start", Durant said.

Harden is yet to practice with the Nets since his blockbuster trade from the Houston Rockets. Harden and Durant - who played together with the Oklahoma City Thunder from 2009-2012 - attributed their success to a wealth of experience in the league. We know what we want.

"We were young in Oklahoma City". Harden and Kevin Durant are 2-0 as teammates in Brooklyn and have been in synch during their two games together and now Irving will have to try and coexist with them as he gets back into shape.

Irving said he was away from the team due to family and personal reasons and left it at that.

The Bucks played against Luka Doncic in their last game before moving on to Durant and Harden in this one and LeBron James and Anthony Davis - practically an All-NBA team minus Antetokounmpo - in the next one. "They wake up, come to the game and they score 30", Giannis Antetokounmpo said.
