Kyrie Irving said he told James Harden earlier in the week that Harden will be the point guard of the Brooklyn Nets, and Irving will play shooting guard.
"We established that, maybe, four days ago now. I just looked at him and I said 'you're the point guard, and I'm gonna play shooting guard.' And that was as simple as that," said Irving following the Nets' 134-117 win over the Warriors.
Harden finished with 16 assists on the game, in addition to 19 points.
Irving scored 15 points, while Durant added 20 points.
"He's been taking control of responsibilities and doing an incredible job," added Irving of Harden.
