Just when you thought this season couldn’t get any stranger. Unfortunately, there is little Billy King can do to resurrect this team.
Joe Johnson scored 19 points, Andray Blatche had career playoff highs of 15 points and 10 rebounds, and the Brooklyn Nets handed the Miami Heat their first loss this postseason, 104-90 on Saturday night in Game 3.
Riding high after a big win in Game 6, Andray Blatche cooked up controversy by guaranteeing the Nets will win their first-round series with a Game 7 victory in Toronto on Sunday.
The Nets held a 15-point lead with five minutes left in Game 3 of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal versus Toronto on Friday night.
For now, Blatche is a really wild wild-card on the Nets. Many I know would prefer that coach Jason Kidd go with Mason Plumlee in relief. But I don’t agree.
Joe Johnson hit six 3-pointers in his 27 points, Mason Plumlee added 18 points, and the Brooklyn Nets won their 11th straight at home, beating the Boston Celtics 114-98 Friday 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.
All NBA teams have off nights, but few are as feckless as the Nets were Wednesday night in Portland during their 120-84 shellacking.
Unfortunately, if the Nets don’t find a way to secure their backboard, they’ll be saving Garnett for games that will never be played. Unlike “Airplane!” their season will have crashed and burned.
Andray Blatche scored 17 points and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Boston Celtics 85-79 on Sunday night as Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett returned to their former home court for the first time since being traded last July.
Since Kidd adjusted his lineup in the New Year by moving Garnett, Pierce, and Johnson up one position number, the Nets’ offense has been much more free-flowing and less dependent on any particular player’s output.
Andray Blatche came off the bench and had a team-high 18 points and reserve forward Mirza Teletovic added 14 points as the Brooklyn Nets beat the Orlando Magic 101-90 on a snowy Tuesday night.
Joe Johnson scored 29 points and Andray Blatche added 20 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 127-110 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday in the fourth regular-season NBA game to be played in the British capital.
Brook Lopez’s broken foot might not be a death knell for the Brooklyn Nets.
The Nets said Saturday that Brook Lopez was hurt during its overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday and the team would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors.
