The Brooklyn Nets are back in the win column, defeating the Indiana Pacers 116-109 on Monday night, ending a turbulent four-game losing streak.

Kevin Durant led the way with 36 points on 13-of-22 shooting, including a perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line. Durant passed former Net Vince Carter for 19th place on the all time scoring list.

Kyrie Irving added 28 points, while Nic Claxton contributed 19 points in the victory. The victory comes at a time of great uncertainty for the Nets, who now stand at 2-5 on the season.

However after the game concluded, the controversial story surrounding Kyrie Irving’s tweets about a movie that many have alleged promotes antisemitism reared its ugly head again when Irving didn’t speak to reporters after the Nets victory. In fact, during the game, a group of fans protested Irving’s posts by siting courtside at Barclays center wearing t-shirts that read “Fight Antisemitism.”

Head Coach Steve Nash told reporters that he was not aware if the front office was considering discipline of the All Star guard.

“I just hope that we all grow through this together,” Nash said. “That’s always an opportunity for us to grow and understand new perspectives. I think the organization is trying to take that stance where they’re gonna communicate through this and try to all come out in a better position with more understanding and more empathy for every side of this debate and situation.”

Irving has yet to apologize, instead getting into a heated exchange with reporters on Saturday.
