It was an ugly win for the Knicks, and they’ll have more as the season goes along. But I hope that Mike Woodson makes sure his team understands that slippage like that against better teams will result in losses.
In their first four games, the Knicks surprised many by consistently performing above preseason expectations and jumping out to an unbeaten start. Another night and another victory later, their breakout beginning doesn’t seem to have an end in sight.
No matter when the Brooklyn Nets play, they hope it’s Hump day. As in an extraordinary day at the office for worker-bee forward Kris Humphries.
The Nets beat the Magic 107-68 at Orlando on Friday and jumped out to an early 20-point lead in this one.
Andray Blatche had 15 points, Brook Lopez added 14 points and 10 rebounds and the Brooklyn Nets beat the Orlando Magic 107-68 Friday night.
This is as good a weekend as any to see if the Nets learned anything from their initial missteps. I want to see the Nets step on the Magic’s throat and not let go until the game is safely out of reach. Study the Heat film for tips.
With the NBA season kicking off on Wednesday, here’s my preview and ranking predictions for the 2012-2013 NBA season. This is how I see the Eastern Conference breaking down, and my season award winners.
“If you want to go to flash and dunking and the pick-and-roll, you gotta go with Dwight Howard,” Shaq said. “But me, I’m going with Andrew Bynum and which Lopez? Brook. Brook Lopez.”
In the end, after two years of rumors, speculation and negotiations, the Nets failed to land the big man.
The Dwight Howard trade saga seems to be over, at least for now. The Brooklyn Nets have moved on to their backup plan, reaching an agreement on a reported four-year deal with Brook Lopez.
League sources told CBSSports.com on Tuesday that the Cavaliers have dropped out of consideration as potential trading partners with the Nets and Magic.
With Marcus Camby returning to Madison Square Garden, the present-day New York Knicks are resembling their defensive-strong teams of the late 1990s. Who is to say that New York can’t be the third-best team in the East?
I can’t believe what I’m reading. The Magic are really going to trade the best (by far) center in the NBA for Brook Lopez, bad players, and three or four first round picks that will all be in the mid to late twenties? Is this really happening?
It seems the ongoing Dwight Howard trade saga just took a favorable turn for Brooklyn. The Nets are emerging again as favorites to land the unhappy center, according to reports.
So you’re saying there’s a chance? The Magic are still entertaining trade talks for embattled star Dwight Howard, but are in “no rush” to ship out the big man, according to CBSSports.com.
