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.
The time for experimenting is over. P.J. Carlesimo has to play his best guys for as long as they can go.
At 46-32, many in the media are calling the Nets a dangerous team. Now if they can only get there en masse.
The Nets have little shot of moving up the Eastern Conference ladder.
17 days. Eight games. All on the road. Monday night starts the defining portion of the Nets’ schedule.
I would think that my queasiness was more likely related to undercooked meat, but, then again, the Nets did emit a malodorous stench with their play in Philly.
For the Nets, it’s back to the drawing board. It’s not the first time during this rollercoaster campaign that they’ve had to take a harder look at their inner workings in a search for consistent basketball.
The Nets will continue to be looking up at teams like the Spurs from echelons below. For now, I will look to be comforted by the Devils, a warm blanket of consistency in New York’s volatile sports landscape.
P.J. Carlesimo seemed to invigorate his club’s stars in winning 12 of his first 14 games as interim coach. Now, there’s a sense that there’s little he can do for a team that simply can’t make shots.
Brook Lopez had 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets won at Detroit for the first time since 2006, holding off the Pistons 93-90 on Wednesday night.
Contending for a championship? With this crew, that will be limited to owner Mikhail Prokhorov’s fantasies.
With tough games upcoming versus Miami and Chicago later this week, the Nets were staring at another cliff if they gagged against Orlando on Monday night.
Brook Lopez strengthened his push for a spot on the All-Star team with 22 points on 10-for-16 shooting, helping the Brooklyn Nets hold off the Minnesota Timberwolves 91-83 on Wednesday night.
I haven’t done this in a while, so here’s a look at the good, the bad and the ugly from this year’s final regular-season edition of the Knicks-Nets rivalry.
