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.

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.

“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.

Humphries, in his fourth year with the Nets, is averaging 6.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 0.5 blocks in just 19.9 minutes per game. The eighth-year player has started in just 20 of the 41 games he’s played in.
With tough games upcoming versus Miami and Chicago later this week, the Nets were staring at another cliff if they gagged against Orlando on Monday night.
