CHICAGO (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets will have all three superstars available for just the second time this season when they meet the Eastern Conference-leading Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night.
James Harden was ready after missing a game because of a hyperextended left knee. So was Kyrie Irving after a sprained left ankle threw his status into question.
With those two joining Kevin Durant, the Nets were set to get a rare look this season at their Big Three in a showdown against the East’s top two teams.
“It’s really early,” coach Steve Nash said. “But anytime those three get on the court together — we haven’t seen it a lot over the course of the last year or so — it’s exciting for us. If we can get dozens of games under our belt with those three playing, I think we can really develop something.”
