After all the money, all the hype, and all the expectations that came with owning home-court advantage in an NBA playoff series, Brooklyn’s inaugural season ended with a dud.
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.
Andray Blatche led a bevy of Brooklyn bench players with 20 points and 11 rebounds the Nets erased an early 17 point deficit to beat the Washington Wizards 106-101 on Monday night.
Reggie Evans is an example of superior will. At 32-years-old, he is the NBA’s ultimate survivor.
Despite being encouraged by the Nets’ inspired basketball in a 101-95 loss in Los Angeles, I just knew I was in for a letdown Sunday as the Nets invaded Phoenix.
One of the best games of Goran Dragic’s career still wasn’t enough for the Phoenix Suns.
17 days. Eight games. All on the road. Monday night starts the defining portion of the Nets’ schedule.
The Nets have four days off before facing the Hawks, which should give Carlesimo and his staff the time they need to work out the specifics.
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.
Nets general manager Billy King has to be hoping that his failure to make any deals at the trading deadline doesn’t sink his club.
The Nets reportedly had their eyes on Celtics forward Paul Pierce, but Brooklyn’s trade proposal wasn’t enough for Boston to pull the trigger.
“The Nets were willing last year to give up Brook Lopez and five first-round picks to get this guy,” Sheridan told Joe & Evan. “The Nets have been trying to get this guy for two years … They can get him without giving up Brook.”
“Trade D-Will!” So much for certain members of the Nets faithful showing any love to star point guard Deron Williams.
Brooklyn has been linked to Hawks forward Josh Smith and Bobcats shooting guard Ben Gordon over the past week, and now general manager Billy King is shifting his focus to Jazz power forward Paul Millsap, according to a report.
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.
