NBA Twitter criticized Reggie Miller for suggesting that the Nets sit down Kevin Durant and James Harden in Game 6 against the Bucks

After the Nets defeated the Bucks on Tuesday night to lead 3-2 in their seven-game series, Reggie Miller tweeted a question about Brooklyn’s strategy before Game 6 .

What if the team chooses to let Kevin Durant and James Harden sit down to ensure they rest before Game 7? Miller cited Durant’s “playing time” as one reason the team should consider doing so.

Durant played 48 minutes against Milwaukee and became the first player to complete this feat since LeBron James completed this feat in the 2018 playoffs with the Cavaliers. At the same time, Harden was still taking care of a hamstring injury, which made him questionable in Tuesday’s game.

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

What is certain is that even if the playing time is long, the Nets will not let Durant and Harden sit together in a potential series against the Bucks. They may be veterans, and Harden may be dealing with injuries, but if you can play, you won’t be in the playoffs.

It makes little sense to save them in the 7th game because they can avoid winning in the 6th game.

Therefore, these two stars will hope to lead their team to the Eastern Conference Finals without Kyrie Irving (ankle).
