Kevin Durant and Harrison Barnes are skilled on the court, but they need some work with the sticks.
Both NBA stars were knocked out in the first round of the NBA 2K Players Tournament on Friday.
Durant, the No. 1 overall seed in the 16-player tournament, was knocked out by Miami Heat high-riser Derrick Jones Jr. in the first matchup of the night.
Playing as the Los Angeles Clippers, Durant lost 78-62 to Jones, who was controlling the Milwaukee Bucks.
Durant did have a couple of noteworthy moments, though.
As for Barnes, he served as the No. 15 seed and took on No. 2 seed Trae Young. This matchup was never really close.
Barnes played as the defending NBA champion Toronto Raptors, while Young controlled the Bucks.
The Hawks star went on to win 101-59. After falling behind 10-0 early, Barnes cut the deficit to 13-11. But Young went on a 12-0 run, turning the game into a blowout.
During the game, both players were connected via headsets and exchanged banter while also asking each other questions.
While Young left Atlanta and went to his hometown of Norman, Okla., Barnes revealed that he decided to remain in Sacramento during the global coronavirus pandemic.
"I'm optimistic, man, that we're going to get in a few more games, so I'm staying close," Barnes said.
Young is close friends with Kings point guard De'Aaron Fox, and he asked Barnes what it's like playing with the former No. 5 overall pick.
"He's the best. Great dude, great point guard," Barnes said. "Unfortunately he got hurt early on, so it put us in a tough situation. If he had been healthy all year, I think we would have had a better year than we had."

With the NBA on hiatus due to the pandemic, Durant and Barnes will have plenty of time at home to work on their 2K skills.
