An excerpt from the Nets-Cavaliers game recap: Over the past 13 games heading into Friday night, Joe Johnson had scored fewer than 10 points six times, and only shot 50 percent or better three times. But against the Cavaliers, he looked more like the Joe Johnson of old, and he felt it, too. “I felt […]
What happened: The Nets beat the Cavaliers, because of course they did, 106-98. Where they stand: Still alive. The Nets are now 31-40, just a half-game behind the Boston Celtics for the eighth and final playoff spot. They’re also a half-game up on the Indiana Pacers and a full game up on the Charlotte Hornets […]
The Cleveland Cavaliers turned an early deficit into a cruising blowout last night, a 117-92 victory over the Brooklyn Nets that was well in hand by the end of the third quarter. That third quarter was punctuated by the playmaking between Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving and center Timofey Mozgov. As you can see in […]
Before their 108-100 overtime loss to the Phoenix Suns Friday night, the Nets made a different kind of statement. In pre-game warmups, most of the team donned one of two shirts produced by the “End It Movement,” dedicated to raising awareness about and eliminating present-day slavery. Deron Williams also wore a Red X on his […]
Hey, so here’s both of Mason Plumlee’s dunks Saturday night in the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest. The first was assisted on by fellow Duke alumnus Kyrie Irving, who threw the ball off the side of the backboard to Plumlee, who pulled it under and around the rim for a reverse slam. It came with a […]
It looks like the Cleveland Cavaliers, of LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Kevin Love fame, might want to add a twin brother to their mix. According to Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio’s notebook, the Cavaliers have “interest” in trading for injured Nets center Brook Lopez, and/or Brook’s twin brother Robin, currently on the Portland […]

Denied!! Mason Plumlee, who’s been re-charged since entering the starting lineup the past five games, made a LeBron James-esque fullcourt pursuit to swat away Kyrie Irving’s breakaway lay-up late in the first quarter. The block was Plumlee’s second of the game, the first being against King James earlier in the quarter.
BROOKLYN, N.Y. — Maybe it’s because of the money, maybe it’s because of the fame, maybe it’s because sports are inherently a suspension of reality intermixed with illogical tribalism, but politics and sports rarely mix.
Brooklyn Nets Kevin Garnett, Deron Williams, Jarrett Jack, and Alan Anderson, along with Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and guard Kyrie Irving, took Monday night’s game to make a political statement, wearing “I Can’t Breathe” t-shirts during warm-ups before taking on the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center. James said he got the shirt from Jack. […]
By now, you know Andrei Kirilenko and the Nets are probably headed for a split. You know that you can’t remember the last time Kirilenko played (it was November 13th), the last time he made a shot (May 14th, during last year’s playoffs), or maybe even the last time he recorded a single box score […]
The Brooklyn Nets (8-10) welcome in the Cleveland Cavaliers (11-7) tonight at Barclays Center at a rough and trying time. After a lackluster performance on Friday night versus the Atlanta Hawks, losing 98-75, the Nets learned they will be without center Brook Lopez for at least the next four games with a lower back strain, […]
