Kevin Garnett will sit out a fourth straight game because of back spasms Friday when the Brooklyn Nets visit Boston, missing his last trip this season back to his old home.
No matter how well the Nets played in the first half, we crossed our fingers and bit our nails to the bone for the next 12 minutes. Not any more. Unless I just jinxed it.
Who’s your goat of the week? Vote here and listen in for the “winner” on Friday!
Joe Johnson scored 21 points, Marcus Thornton came off the bench for 20, and the Brooklyn Nets powered their way above .500 for the first time this season by beating the Memphis Grizzlies 103-94 on Wednesday night.
The Nets signed Collins to a second 10-day contract Wednesday, and he will be in uniform when they host the Memphis Grizzlies.
“I hope (my coming out) encourages other people to live an authentic life — an honest, authentic life — and not be afraid or ashamed to be who they really are in the public eye,” Collins told WFAN’s Marc Malusis.
OK, so it wasn’t their Mount Everest — that would equate to the NBA title this nearly $200 million roster was expected to compete for before a 10-21 start put a damper on things — but I’ll take baby steps.
Jason Collins played the final minutes of a winning home debut with the Brooklyn Nets, who cooled off the Chicago Bulls with a 96-80 victory Monday night.
With the crowd chanting his name, Collins finally entered the game in the waning moments. He played just three minutes, had no points, one rebound and one steal.
They like what he’s done so far. The Brooklyn Nets are apparently so pleased with Jason Collins’ play they reportedly will sign the 35-year-old center to another 10-day contract once his current one runs out Tuesday.
Marcus Thornton scored 12 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 107-98 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday night.
Collins played the final eight minutes of a blowout win. Rarely has he been prouder of a performance. “I got them a bucket,” the Nets center said with a chuckle.
The Nets didn’t take long to put their worst loss in more than 10 years behind them. “We looked fresh after the back-to-back,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said.
Jason Collins became the NBA’s first openly-gay player when he signed a 10-day contract with the Brooklyn Nets on February 23, and it looks like he’s here to stay.
All NBA teams have off nights, but few are as feckless as the Nets were Wednesday night in Portland during their 120-84 shellacking.
