Gutpunch: Heat 102, Nets 96 (GAME GRADES)

Gutpunch: Heat 102, Nets 96 (GAME GRADES)

How would you grade the players? The Brooklyn Nets CENTER Everything the Nets did tonight was overshadowed by LeBron James, who dominated with 25 first-half points on 9-13 shooting, and then dominated the second half with… 24 points on 8-11 shooting. Pretty good. After a technical foul in a scuffle with (who else) Alan Anderson, […]

How would you grade the players? The Brooklyn Nets CENTER Ain’t no place like home, right? After putting up two stinkers in the first two games, appearing to give up early in Game 1 and then throwing away Game 2, the Nets came home and put together their best performance against the Heat this season, […]

Nets Logo

How would you grade the players? The Brooklyn Nets CENTER The Nets played a much more competitive, in-sync game than they did in Game 1, getting to spots on defense in the paint more quickly, creating more open shots inside and out, and forcing live-ball turnovers early.

How would you grade the players? The Brooklyn Nets CENTER For all the talk of each team’s inverted offense and small-long hybrid lineups, this game came down to how each team performed in the paint, and the Nets couldn’t control it against a stronger, more athletic Heat team. The Nets had no answer for the […]

How would you grade the players? The Brooklyn Nets CENTER Lots of blame will be placed on the team’s inability to create offense in the fourth quarter, and that’s a fair analysis. They stunk in crunch time against a team that has (if you believe the narrative) worse crunch-time options. But Brooklyn’s pick-and-roll defense fell […]

ESCAPISM: Nets 102, Raptors 98 (PLAYOFF GAME GRADES)

How would you grade the players? The Brooklyn Nets CENTER It’s really cool when they nearly let a 15-point lead crumble to dust in three minutes, right? Defensively, the Nets did a solid job containing DeMar DeRozan after a hot start, and Jonas Valanciunas did considerably less damage with five fouls. Kyle Lowry only got […]

Knotted Up: Raptors 100, Nets 95 (PLAYOFF GAME GRADES)

How would you grade the players? The Brooklyn Nets CENTER Until the last few minutes, the Nets maximized their best asset — forcing turnovers — and were dominated by their biggest weakness — rebounding. They may have set a record for most shots rimmed out in a game, which will happen sometimes. Credit to DeMar […]
