Look: Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving react to Nets losing to Knicks
Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving chose to sign with the Brooklyn Nets over the New York Knicks in free agency because they both felt the Brooklyn squad was up-and-coming, and the current state of the organization was much better than the Knicks. Imagine their surprise then to see their team get beat badly Thursday by the same Knicks franchise the two avoided in free agency. It was not pretty.
Take a look at their faces during the third quarter:

The Knicks ended up winning 94-82 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Durant is still recovering from a torn Achilles tendon and has not played this season. Irving remains out with a shoulder injury and appears behind schedule with his rehab.
The Nets are now 16-14 this season, while the Knicks are 8-24.
