The Nets-Sixers showdown offered fans three specific opportunities, no matter the end result. 1. The Sixers defeated them on December 18th thanks to some late-game heroics to Joel Embiid — could they avenge their cellar-dweller loss? 2. Should the Nets lose again, at least their disappointment would be done and dusted before the New York […]

Nets stumble into the New Year with embarrassing loss to Wizards

Grades-D+

After two-straight buzzer-beaters, one good and one bad, a very fair question to ask coming into this Brooklyn Nets-Washington Wizards contest would’ve been: what does this strange, weird, and cruel basketball team have in store next? Facing off against another disappointing franchise, albeit one with two stars, should’ve given the Nets reason to believe, but they […]

Resolution: Improve your three-point shooting and just chill out on the court


Spencer Dinwiddie was signed in December because of the Nets' injury woes plaguing the point guard spot. In limited minutes thus far, Dinwiddie has continued to improve as the Nets' backup guard in small doses. While he's not dropping the same totals he did in the D-League, the Nets have no choice but to roll with him for the time being. Even if Lin returns healthy, Dinwiddie could easily carve out a role in the Nets' backcourt if he improves on a career-best 45% of his field goals this season. The one thing holding him back from seeing regular rotation minutes is his three-point shot (or lack thereof), as Dinwiddie is shooting an awful 20% on his looks from downtown. If he isn't able to improve that mark, he will continue to ride the pine in Kenny Atkinson's three-point heavy system.

Coming into tonight’s Brooklyn Nets-Chicago Bulls game, you’d have been hard-pressed to find a more pertinent storyline than Jeremy Lin’s restrained (but in a different spot) left hamstring. The Nets were, and this is putting it kindly, woeful without their summer signing, so what team would show up against the Bulls? The Halloween version that […]

Following the Christmastime break (and post-mortem for their heinous losses to the last two champions), the Brooklyn Nets needed to reverse their course quickly headed into 2017. Hopefully refreshed (and full), the Nets welcomed the Charlotte Hornets into the borough with one major lineup change: Joe Harris in for Bojan Bogdanovic. Unsurprisingly, however, it did […]
