Deron Williams scored 24 points and Brooklyn ended an eight-game road trip by crushing the Cleveland Cavaliers 113-95 on Wednesday night, giving the Nets a record for road wins in a season.
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.
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.
Zach Randolph had 16 points and 14 rebounds, Marc Gasol scored 14 points and the Memphis Grizzlies won their seventh straight game, 76-72 over the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday night.
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.
The Brooklyn Nets kept going deeper down their bench to find a winning combination. The Chicago Bulls simply had nowhere to go.
Joe Johnson scored 19 points and MarShon Brooks added 17 points off the bench Friday night, leading the Brooklyn Nets to its fifth straight victory, 99-79 over the struggling Phoenix Suns.
When MarShon Brooks has his game going, he is a threat to score from almost any spot on the floor.
The Nets won their third straight game after dominating the Kings 113-93. They’re now 5-1 under P.J. Carlesimo
Even after the brawl, there was little that the Celtics could do about it anyway, thanks to all the weapons remaining in the Nets’ arsenal. It wasn’t a fair fight.
The symbolism of Monday night’s game will supersede anything that will be relevant to the ultimate composition of the 2012-13 regular-season standings.
