Brooklyn Nets lost the third game vs Boston Celtics. Kevin Durant admitted he is overthinking, when he's on the court. "I was just thinking too much to be honest, this whole series," Durant said, via ESPN "Like how I approach the game.
We got another game to play, another opportunity, and I'm looking forward to that." "I feel like the first two games I was trying to be too aggressive," Durant added. "A team that's loading up on me, that's trying to take me out of all my actions.
I felt like I was still trying to force the first two games and watching film, a lot of my teammates were open and they were knocking down shots, so I felt my approach to this game was to play off of everybody -- get in the flow of the offense and let the ball move and find me." Durant said that the Celtics are successful in their plan because they have more size than Brookly Nets.
"Every team I've been on, you're just trying to figure out the best way to play," Durant said. "When you got good teammates around you as well, you're trying to figure out, I try to figure out how I can be the best version of myself and also not getting in my teammates' way.
Sometimes I think too much about it. Sometimes I need to go out there and just [have] no thoughts in my head and just play. "I feel like I prepared myself the right way. It's a matter of the small decisions in the game that may not go in my favor.
I thought I found my teammates better than I did the last two games. I just need to score more."
Steve Nash said it's a little bit of everything.
"Clearly they're loading up on him, sending bodies to him, being physical with him.
... I think it's the unforced turnovers," Nash said. "I don't think Kevin has to go off. We shot a good percentage, we moved the ball. It's just the ones that we just gave up. Poor decision-making, not connecting, simple passes and they're going the other way.
That, to me, has been the difference in all three games." Durant doesn't need any more motivation for Game 4. "Man, we know what it is," Durant said. "I don't think no speech or anything will do it at this part of the year. You know what it is -- we down 3-0. ... On Monday, we'll come out and play."
