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.
“Honestly, I have no rhythm,” Garnett said. “I’m trying to establish some confidence and figure this whole ‘where I fit into the offense’ thing. Right now I’m just not even a priority.”
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.
The Nets said Saturday that Brook Lopez was hurt during its overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday and the team would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors.
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.
Andre Drummond had 22 points and 13 rebounds, and the Detroit Pistons held off a determined Brooklyn rally, beating the Nets 103-99 on Friday night.
Much has been written about the precipitous decline in Kevin Garnett’s game, but the talk about Pierce has been in more hushed tones. His instincts can still be useful — as long as it’s in a reserve role.
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.
Deron Williams scored a season-high 25 points in his return to the lineup, Brook Lopez added 24, and the Nets beat the Boston Celtics 104-96 Tuesday night.
If New York City is still a holy basketball land, with ancient, blacktop altars dotting the map, then tonight’s NBA game is a savage sacrilege
Anyone calling for Jason Kidd’s head following the Nets’ abysmal start needs to chill. He’s not going anywhere — for now.
Brooklyn coach Jason Kidd seems to be out of answers after going with the end of his bench for much of the fourth quarter in Sunday’s loss.
Nets fell to 3-10, a half-game behind the New York Knicks, and were hearing boos at Barclays Center in the second half.
