Even though the Nets thrashed the Detroit Pistons last night, they still sit 2.5 games behind both the Chicago Bulls (4th seed) and Toronto Raptors (3rd seed) for home-court advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs. With the Raptors off tonight and the Bulls playing at Washington, the Nets have a chance […]
Hello Marquis. It was a good day indeed. Thank you for your continued support of The Brooklyn Game. Impress everyone on the team plane with a hoodie from The Brooklyn Game Store. Your support keeps us writing stupid things about basketball. Thanks! Here’s a roundup of last night’s Nets festivities.
How would you grade the players? The Brooklyn Nets CENTER The Pistons are bad, and the Nets took advantage of that with a good combination of three-pointers, post-ups, and drives to the basket. They defended well, staying home on the pick-and-roll and switching at the right moments, and other than some athletic dunks and a […]

Without Brook Lopez, the Brooklyn Nets struggled against the Detroit Pistons’ two-headed monster duo of Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe and lost their three-game winning streak. Tonight, still without Lopez, they look to get on track against the Philadelphia 76ers — a team that has, after a fast start, fully committed to tanking. Their best […]
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 […]
The Brooklyn Nets don’t have to wait long to extend their three-game winning streak: They’ll get a chance in Detroit tonight against the 10-13 Detroit Pistons. While the Nets have currently won three games in a row — the longest current streak in the Eastern Conference! — the Pistons are running in the opposite direction, […]
How would you grade the players? Mason Plumlee CENTER Struggled to defend Andre Drummond, Greg Monroe, and the paint, but he’s a late-first round rookie. What do you expect? Paul Pierce POWER FORWARD Experienced fleeting moments of brilliance before moments of equal inanity. One example: near the end of the first half, with possession of […]
