Brooklyn Nets All-Star Kevin Durant was visibly upset with his team’s performance following their 120-116 loss to the undermanned Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday.

In the game, Los Angeles was down 10 players due to both injury and health and safety protocol

“Like Coach (Steve Nash) said, we didn’t deserve to win this game. We came in here with an f**** up attitude to start, thinking we were just going to walk into a W,” Durant said post-game per Brian Lewis of the New York Post.

Brooklyn had a 12-point lead with 5:27 to play in the fourth quarter, but they collapsed in the final minutes, with Eric Bledsoe and Justise Winslow leading a comeback win for the Clippers.

“Hopefully, a loss like this sits in your brain until tomorrow,” KD said. “… If you ain’t feeling like s–t after this game, you gotta look yourself in the mirror.”

The Clippers hosted a Nets team that had a serious handicap, as they were playing without their dynamic duo of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. In addition, several key role players were also out including Nicolas Batum and Marcus Morris.

“It’s natural when a team is missing so many players, they’ve been going through so much over there, and we relaxed,” Durant said. “You wouldn’t think you could lose an NBA game like this. Missing how many guys, playing guys up from the G-League. … They all made an impact, I felt, and we came in too chill.”
