The Nets have been hit by major injuries throughout the season. Head coach Jason Kidd has noticed guard Joe Johnson stepping up his game.
In a season of unpredictable twists and turns, the Nets happen to be one of the hottest teams in the league right now after winning their sixth in seven games. But let’s be real — they’re not championship caliber.
At six-foot seven and with a lengthy wingspan, Livingston’s size wrecked havoc on Miami on both ends. Livingston played 51 of the 58 minutes and filled up the stat sheet with 19 points, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, a steal and 3 blocked shots.
I get this kind of logic from my kids all the time: A followed B, therefore B caused A. But I also know that, unless ties were preventing oxygen from flowing to his brain, there’s more to this streak than Kidd ditching his neckwear.
It’s New Year’s resolution time. Here’s what prominent sports figures are (or should be) saying.
Smith’s hijinks occurred during a free-throw attempt by Dirk Nowitski, when he was subbed in with 2:08 left in the first half and promptly bent over to yank on the laces of Shawn Marion.
Whether it was a stroke of genius or dumb luck, Nets coach Jason Kidd concocted a new look for his team as it entered the New Year, pairing his two point guards.
Well, now we know that Stan Van Gundy won’t be coming to rescue the hapless Nets in 2014.
Tony Parker had 18 points to lead six players in double figures and the San Antonio Spurs rolled past the listless Brooklyn Nets 113-92 on Tuesday night.
The one move that King has to make now, as it’s three weeks overdue, is to fire Kidd. Kidd, who took the job only 10 days after retiring as a player, is unsurprisingly in over his shaved head.
The Knicks and Nets were both set to play on Christmas Day, but a pair of 9 and 18 records has left some fans disappointed.
GM Billy King said that the Brooklyn Nets are disappointed by the latest injury to Brook Lopez, but are not in panic mode. Lopez fractured the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot.
Brook Lopez’s broken foot might not be a death knell for the Brooklyn Nets.
There are no excuses this time. Not injuries, coaching, the refs. This one was all about one team outworking the other. Washington was hungrier and ate the Nets for dinner.
OK, they were facing the Sixers. But there was definitely something different in Brooklyn last night in the Nets’ easy-breezy 130-94 victory.
