Nets’ Mills comes through after Celtics promises to ban Patty A ** Up.

Kevin Durant predicted it.

Back in August, during the NBA off-season, when Team USA won a gold medal at the Olympics in Tokyo, thanks in large part to 29 points from Durant, the Nets star went on Instagram Live and found Australian star point guard Patty Mills , which helped the Boomers win a bronze medal. Mills had just signed up to play with the Nets, the team’s main addition in the off-season.

“Patty is coming back to the BK,” Durant said with a smile, showing his gold medal. “Black and white! Hey, you shot, you had 40 tonight. There will be problems for the Boston Celtics this year! I’m telling you!”

Durant called that final comment in the direction of Celtics star Jayson Tatum and new coach Ime Udoka, who was an assistant for USA Basketball this summer. Udoka was an assistant with the Spurs while Mills was a backup point guard in San Antonio.

Tatum replied, “Get the fuck out of here.”

And Udoka said, “We know how to lock Patty up.”

The video reappeared Wednesday night after Mills set Tatum and Udoka on fire and scored 23 points on 8-for-12 shooting, with 7-for-10 shooting from the 3-point line in a large net -Victory. As it turned out, Udoka didn’t know how to lock up Mills’ bum.

Udoka also served as an assistant coach with the Nets last season, of course, before becoming head coach of the Celtics, which gave him a close bond with Durant and Mills. There were some trash talks from the Nets stars but Udoka shook them off after the game.

“I’ve always been with these guys so I know them well,” Udoka said at his post-game press conference. “I won’t take it that far personally. Just, you get frustrated when the game plan doesn’t follow for certain types. If (Mills) gets four open 3s with just one dribble, that’s a lack of understanding of who he is and he’s been around long enough to know. “

Durant particularly enjoyed the win, collecting 21 points and eight assists.

“It was good to beat Ime,” said Durant on Wednesday after the game. “I’m really excited to come here and win in Boston. It’s a difficult place to play. But now that Ime is the trainer it gets even cuter. … It’s just friendly trash talk. I mean, he talks so much shit to me. “

The win over the Celtics was arguably the best of the season for the Nets. Udoka and the Celtics shouldn’t feel guilty about releasing Mills the way he did – many teams have been burned by Mills this season, especially recently. In his last six games, Mills averaged 20.0 points on 58.9% shooting, including 58.9% 3-point shooting.

“I think it’s getting used to it,” said Mills after the game. “I don’t think there’s more to it than that. Understand what is needed of me I think. Stay ready, be ready. I know the ball will fly towards me at some point. I think staying aggressive with that aggressive mindset at the end of the day will loosen up Kevin and James. I think that doesn’t just apply to me, it applies to everyone down the line. “

Coach Steve Nash was grateful to have Mills, especially as shooter Joe Harris was out with an ankle injury. This is how Nash Mills explained the rise:
