After some tremendous juggling, stellar producer Al Dukes managed to get Carmelo Anthony and Brook Lopez on at the same time to talk about the upcoming NBA playoffs.
Strategically speaking, I can’t imagine a worse matchup — outside of Miami — for the Nets, who lost three of four to Chicago during the regular season.
Brook Lopez scored 20 points and reserve Andray Blatche added 15 as the playoff-bound Brooklyn Nets held off the Detroit Pistons 103-99 on Wednesday night.
Their final grade, however, will depend on whether the players and coaching staff learned from their mistakes and whether they can apply those lessons.
Deron Williams scored 33 points and the Brooklyn Nets secured home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs with a 117-109 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night.
Deron Williams had 29 points and 12 assists to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 101-93 win over the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.
The Brooklyn Nets are used to getting a strong first-quarter from All-Star center Brook Lopez. On Tuesday night, they also got a big opening-period performance from Reggie Evans.
Reggie Evans is an example of superior will. At 32-years-old, he is the NBA’s ultimate survivor.
Sorry, Brooklyn. Despite all the platitudes flowing from the media related to the borough’s spirit following the move last summer from N.J., you haven’t made much of a dent on the outcomes.
Carlos Boozer had 29 points and 18 rebounds, Nate Robinson made the go-ahead basket with 22 seconds left, and the Chicago Bulls overcame a 16-point deficit to beat the Brooklyn Nets 92-90 on Thursday night.
The Nets have little shot of moving up the Eastern Conference ladder.
The Nets led most of the second quarter and a free throw put them up 48-47 at the break. The Nets tied it at 90-all on four straight points by Brook Lopez.
A perilous eight-game swing west of Brooklyn? Forget those warnings of impending doom from both critics and fans — like me.
Brook Lopez is just like Deron Williams. He enjoys visiting Dallas, too.
The Brooklyn Nets didn’t get a bye on their schedule Monday night. It just seemed that way.
