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.
Spencer Hawes had 24 points and 10 rebounds, Jrue Holiday added 15 points and 11 assists and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Brooklyn Nets 106-97 on Monday night.
The third quarter has been the Brooklyn Nets’ Achilles heel of late. However, on Wednesday night it proved to be their saving grace.
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.
Johnson’s legend may be growing with every buzzer-beating dagger, but who knows if his heel becomes a recurring issue? That’s why it was crucial for other Nets to step up on Tuesday night and take the reins during closing time.
It helps to have a money player, and guard Joe Johnson’s picture should be pasted next to the definition of that term.
Joe Johnson hit a tying 3-pointer in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter and then his buzzer-beating jumper at the end of overtime lifted the Brooklyn Nets to a 113-111 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Tuesday night.
The Brooklyn Nets were staring at second-half collapses similar to the one that did them in during Sunday night’s loss to the San Antonio Spurs. This time Joe Johnson and the Nets were able to stave off a late run by the Denver Nuggets.
Brooklyn figured out how to win without its most versatile offensive player Monday night. Feed Brook Lopez early and often, keep Reggie Evans active on the glass and put the ball in Joe Johnson’s hands with the game on the line.
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 said his team was lacking the same enthusiasm and confidence it had when he first took over.
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.
The Brooklyn Nets kept going deeper down their bench to find a winning combination. The Chicago Bulls simply had nowhere to go.
