This was the game the Nets were praying for — and yet they still fell short. Don’t count on it occurring again in Game 2.
The Nets announced Friday that Teletovic would be listed as out for their playoff games, and they would provide updates if his status changed.
“We have to go out there and play well. We have to figure out how to slow them down offensively and we’ve gotta figure out how to score against them.”
The Nets may have snuck into the postseason. But hey, they’re in. And anyone in has a chance to win.
For whatever cosmic reasons, the Nets will be competing in games with even more meaning. I was wrong about whether they would get there. That won’t stop me from putting on my soothsayer hat again.
The Brooklyn Nets kept alive their hopes for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot, beating the Orlando Magic 101-88 on Wednesday night behind a career-high 28 points from Bojan Bogdanovic.
The Nets now need a win over the Magic and an Indiana loss at Memphis to qualify for the postseason.
The only thing consistent about this team has been their inconsistency. Here’s one thing you can count on, though: On Wednesday, the Nets will be counted out.
Brook Lopez scored 26 points, Bojan Bogdanovic added 22, hitting all six of his 3-point attempts, and the Brooklyn Nets continued their playoff push with a 117-80 blowout of the Washington Wizards on Friday.
Unfortunately, these are your 2014-15 Nets, folks. And if there’s one player who embodies the Brooklyn fans’ frustrations, it’s Jarrett Jack.
Al Horford made the go-ahead basket on a dunk with 19 seconds remaining, and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Brooklyn Nets 114-111 on Wednesday night to complete a season sweep.
The 27-year-old has appeared in five games since signing a 10-day contract with the Nets on March 27, averaging 4.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 12.3 minutes.
The Nets have come back from the abyss to now own their postseason destiny. They have three home games this week, two of which are winnable.
Deron Williams scored a season-high 31 points, Thaddeus Young made the tiebreaking basket with 22 seconds left, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Toronto Raptors 114-109 on Friday night.
