After forming the super team of the year, the Brooklyn Nets had the weight of the world on their shoulders to win the NBA title last season. However, their three superstars, James Harden, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Durant could not maintain their health throughout, which eventually led to their downfall.

Although they lost to the eventual NBA champions, Milwaukee Bucks, they did leave with their heads held high after all Kevin Durant contributed. Fortunately, the Nets will have their trio intact in the upcoming season, which means they have another real shot at a title.

Also, they re-signed Blake Griffin and Bruce Brown. But they also added some experienced veterans like Patty Mills, James Johnson, DeAndre’ Bembry, and Jevon Carter as well. With that in mind, let’s look at what their schedule looks like in 2021-22, and what are the important matchups.

Exciting Brooklyn Nets games to look out for

The Brooklyn Nets will kick start their journey against the team that ended their hopes of winning the championship last season. On October 19, 2019, the Nets will meet the Milwaukee Bucks on their terrain at Fiserv Forum at 7:30 PM EST. While a Giannis Antetokounmpo and Kevin Durant face-off will be a must-watch, Jrue Holiday and Khris Middleton might be guarding James Harden and Kyrie Irving.

So, this will be a battle of the trio, and an excellent opportunity for Brooklyn to extract their revenge, and winning against them might be the ideal start of the new season for them.

Next up, this Christmas Day matchup between Nets and Lakers on December 25 at 8:00 PM EST in Staples Center, will have more superstars on the court than any other game. While the Nets have their three-headed monster, the Lakers’ blockbuster offseason has helped them make a super team of their own. With Anthony Davis, LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony, Dwight Howard, and even Marc Gasol.
