The Morning After: Time to Get Serious?

Nets Raptors Basketball

  What had happened was: The Nets cast aside their usual uniforms and instead collectively donned a massive white flag in the final game of the regular season, which they lost 114-85 to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The game mercifully brought to an end a streak of uninspired, boring basketball the Nets largely played over the […]

The Morning After: Nets Suffocate Nuggets

The Morning After: Nets Suffocate Nuggets

  Here’s a roundup of last night’s Nets festivites: What happened: The Nets thoroughly obliterated a Denver Nuggets team that is a shell of its healthy self, setting the tone early by going up 29-8 after the first quarter and never letting it get closer than 20 points in atypical Nets fashion. The Nets won the […]

A Futile Effort: Pistons 103, Nets 99

Paul Pierce, Kyle Singler, Greg Monroe

What once appeared was to be another ho-hum blowout for an indifferent Brooklyn Nets team lacking the services of a key player turned into a furious comeback attempt that just couldn’t come through. Nets fans justifiably aching, clawing to assign definite blame in a close loss will point to Andray Blatche’s two missed free throws […]

Ghost Town

Jason Kidd Coach

BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Following Monday night’s game against the Portland Trail Blazers, the Brooklyn Nets engaged in some roster-wide “reflection,” reflection that kept roughly 40 media members out of the locker room, pushed back into a far-off hallway, well out of earshot. Whatever words were tossed around the lockers, it was clear the team didn’t […]

Shorthanded loss a part of the process for struggling Nets

Joe Johnson

LOS ANGELES, C.A. -— No player, coach, or GM will ever tell you openly that a team’s priorities lie anywhere other than squarely on winning a game on any given night. Saturday the Brooklyn Nets tiptoed carefully along that line, bolstering the suspicion that they’re playing the long game: less concerned with nightly results and fixated […]

Summer League: Sixers 89, Nets 86

Today, the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics’ blockbuster trade became official and, thusly, nothing else mattered. However, the Nets played their last Summer League game of the year and literally nobody watched. The final consolation game between the Philadelphia 76ers and Brooklyn Nets was not televised today as NBATV opted to switch over to the […]

Summer League: Rockets 92, Nets 76.

I’m clearly going through the five stages of grief. Two days ago, I wrote that I would try not to get so mad about losing a pointless Summer League game. I hated watching it because these are some of the guys that the Nets are going to have to count on during big stretches next […]

Summer League: Nets 69, Jazz 98

Here are all the things that the Nets did particularly well today: What do you mean they lost by 29 points and got absolutely dominated by Jeremy Evans? And you’re telling me that Trey Burke didn’t play a single second? And Tyshawn Taylor played completely out of control and didn’t facilitate the offense at all? […]
