CHICAGO – Kevin Durant is calling Sunday’s Suns-Mavericks showdown on national television “another game,” but he understands the high interest.

“I understand the entertainment aspect of what we do and a lot of people on the outside got this game circled on their calendar, but both teams, just regularly scheduled programming,” Durant said. “Getting back to work and seeing how you can get better as a unit.”

People probably started putting their Sharpies to use when Brooklyn traded Kyrie Irving to Dallas and Durant to Phoenix right before the Feb. 9 trade deadline to officially signal the end of disappointing era for the Nets – and game-changing jolt for the Mavs and Suns.

The two teams now will meet for the first time with Irving and Durant on their new squads.
