Nets' star trio back for another try vs. Cavs

The Brooklyn Nets unveiled their star trio of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and James Harden this week, and they produced plenty of offense against the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Nets did not anticipate their defense allowing the Cavs' Collin Sexton to go on a major scoring binge in overtime.

The trio will be on the floor again Friday night, but this time the Nets hope their defense can contain Sexton when the teams reconvene in Cleveland.

Cleveland posted a wild 147-135 double-overtime win Wednesday by overcoming the combined 96 points by Brooklyn's trio, who combined for 28 points in the fourth quarter when the Nets forced overtime on a tip-in by Irving.
