After dropping a 103-73 sadface to the Miami Heat, the Brooklyn Nets made mincemeat of the Orlando Magic, ripping them apart to the tune of 107-68 and outscoring them 57-25 over the final 22 minutes. The Nets scored 75 points through three quarters in a game that took the Magic to score 68 through four. Here’s your Net Worth.
With the lead cut to seven in the third quarter, Williams made everything happen; attacking the basket, finding Joe Johnson for an open shot, creating for self and teammates like only he and a few other players in the league can. The numbers won’t blow your face off, but his influence turned this game from single-digits to a blowout.
He’s started to find the touch, slowly but surely, but still hasn’t had the “Joe Johnson scored 29 points out of nowhere” game we’ve been waiting for.
He is noticeably quicker than Brook Lopez defensively and attacks the glass well. It’s clearer that in the four-man big rotation, he’s going to get the short stick of minutes between him and Lopez. But had a fine game overall.
A red-hot first quarter where he hit everything inside, a continued effort defensively and on the boards, and an exhibition of his feathery touch. He took advantage of a team with significant inexperience inside, and recorded his first double-double since 2011 in under 24 minutes. Oh, and it happened against Orlando, the team that didn’t want to take him on in a Dwight Howard deal. So that’s cool.
His best regular season game in a Nets uniform. Played a huge part in the second-quarter run that turned this contest from a two-point game to a 16-point one. Upped and undered the porous Magic defense into submission.
He doesn’t hit the rim. He either swishes it or throws it two feet too far.
I think you’ll see a pattern here… Save a sad airball from beyond the arc, Childress was active on defense and attacking the glass. For a player that wasn’t supposed to play at all, an encouraging game from Childress.
TOKO LOCO WITH THE FOREIGN FACIAL. AND SO IT WAS CHRISTENED BY IAN EAGLE.

Another great game for Watson off the bench. Scored efficiently from different spots on the floor and played active defense.
