The NBA’s newest super team has been handed a bitter reality check on their first night out as the league was reminded of their big issue.

You put Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and James Harden on the floor and there will be fireworks but will it be enough to bring a championship to Brooklyn?

That is the question for the Brooklyn Nets as the Big 3 played together for the first time in a 147-135 double overtime loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Incredibly the Cavaliers came into the match as the only team not averaging 100 points this NBA season despite now sitting sixth in the Eastern Conference.

But as the Big 3 took to the court for the first time the Cavaliers showed up the glaring issue that will define whether this team can be a success.

There is little doubt that Irving, Durant and Harden can rack up the points, as they did against Cleveland — Irving scored 37, Durant 38 with 12 boards and eight assists, and Harden 21 points, 10 rebounds and 12 assists — but the defensive end has been left wanting with social media already ready to take aim at the Nets’ weakness.
