When the series shifts to Chicago for Game 3 on Thursday, all eyes will be on Williams, who will have not only the ball but the entire complexion of the series in his hands.
Pockets of empty seats at the Barclays Center. A healthy contingent of fans clad in the opponent’s colors. Was there supposed to be a playoff game in Brooklyn last night?
The Brooklyn Nets certainly made the most of their first impression. The organization made sure to empty the playbook to christen the Barclays Center’s first-ever NBA playoff game.
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.
The time for experimenting is over. P.J. Carlesimo has to play his best guys for as long as they can go.
Their final grade, however, will depend on whether the players and coaching staff learned from their mistakes and whether they can apply those lessons.
Reggie Evans is an example of superior will. At 32-years-old, he is the NBA’s ultimate survivor.
Sorry, Brooklyn. Despite all the platitudes flowing from the media related to the borough’s spirit following the move last summer from N.J., you haven’t made much of a dent on the outcomes.
The Nets have little shot of moving up the Eastern Conference ladder.
Reggie Evans finished with a career-high 26 rebounds and matched his career best with 22 points, and Brooklyn beat Portland 111-93 on Wednesday night.
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.
The Nets led most of the second quarter and a free throw put them up 48-47 at the break. The Nets tied it at 90-all on four straight points by Brook Lopez.
A perilous eight-game swing west of Brooklyn? Forget those warnings of impending doom from both critics and fans — like me.
17 days. Eight games. All on the road. Monday night starts the defining portion of the Nets’ schedule.
