Nets 94, Raptors 88: Box Score Reaction

Check out the box score from last night’s victory here.

Some immediate takeaways:

  • Only four Nets had a plus-minus greater than the game’s actual six-point outcome: Joe Johnson (+12), Reggie Evans (+10), C.J. Watson (+9), and Kris Humphries (+7). I wouldn’t disagree that they were the four best players for the Nets on the floor last night, though you could make an argument that #BlatcheMob was in full effect.

  • 5-16 shooting for Deron is just depressingly standard at this point.

  • 14:24 of playing time for Keith Bogans, who has a 4.0 PER and a .439 effective field goal percentage this season. 5:39 of playing time for MarShon Brooks, who has a 20.7 PER and a .595 effective field goal percentage this season.

  • To give you an idea of how porous the Nets’ interior defense of Blatche & Evans was, combine Jonas Valanciunas and Ed Davis. EdNas ValanciDavis shot 17-19 from the floor en route to 39 points and 16 rebounds. The Nets still miss Brook Lopez — for his defense.


  1. Clearly, Avery’s teaching MarShon a valuable lesson by playing Graham, I mean Bogans, ahead of him. The lesson is “get out of here the first chance you get.”
