Joe Johnson scored 27 points in the Brooklyn Nets’ season-high fourth straight victory, a 102-98 win Wednesday night that snapped the Golden State Warriors’ 10-game winning streak and prevented the first 7-0 road trip in NBA history.
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.
Joe Johnson snapped out of a slump with 23 points against his former team, and the Brooklyn Nets matched a season high with their third straight victory by beating the Atlanta Hawks 91-86 on Monday night.
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.

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.
“I’ve let games go like that. In Atlanta, I let a couple of games go where I didn’t call a timeout because they weren’t set. We threw it in and Joe Johnson was able to dribble down and hit a winning shot.”
OK, they were facing the Sixers. But there was definitely something different in Brooklyn last night in the Nets’ easy-breezy 130-94 victory.
Joe Johnson made 10 3-pointers, most in the NBA this season, and scored a season-high 37 points to lead the Nets to a 130-94 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night.
All that was missing was the heroic cry, “Here I come to save the day!” Deron Williams was his old high-stepping self Tuesday in leading the Nets to a 104-96 victory over Boston.
Brook Lopez scored 32 points, Joe Johnson had 15 and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Milwaukee Bucks 90-82 on Saturday night for their first winning streak of the season.
Joe Johnson scored 26 points, Brook Lopez added 12 of his 20 in the fourth quarter, and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Memphis Grizzlies 97-88 on Saturday night.
If the Nets continue to struggle, feel free to point out injuries and issues with chemistry, but give the head coach a chance to get his feet wet before declaring that he can’t do the job.
