With Lopez out, Reggie Evans must play a bigger role in the Nets back court rotation. Here he is with a strong put back slam to put Brooklyn up four.

 

The Brooklyn Nets will rest Kevin Garnett Friday night against the Philadelphia 76ers, and Kidd had yet to announce an official replacement, calling it a game-time decision.

Something to consider:... MORE →

 

Paul Pierce, Kyle Singler, Greg Monroe

Paul Pierce hit a key three late, but it wasn't enough to complete the Nets' comeback.

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 with the Nets down 5 in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter. Others will lament the lack of an obvious foul call on a Deron Williams drive that, upon replay review, cost Brooklyn a key possession in the final minute.

(By the way, most people in the NBA community support the use of replay review in the name of getting things right. That makes it all the more painful when an official reviews possession and has to overlook a severe injustice done to the game with his hands behind his back just because fouls aren't reviewable. I know the reasons for this, but it's frustrating to see officials given the tools to get things right have to own what they did very wrong.)

What really happened in Auburn Hills tonight, however, was reminiscent of the Nets' signature stench, in which uninspired play over the course of an entire game gives way to yet another L.... MORE →

The Nets made colossal moves this summer expected to alter the Eastern Conference landscape, acquiring future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce from the Boston Celtics and transforming their lineup into a potential championship contender.

So far, that hasn't worked out.... MORE →

 

In the beginning of September, Brooklyn Nets forward Reggie Evans did the unthinkable: he shaved his legendary-in-Brooklyn beard off, sporting a clean chin unlike anything we've seen in Evans's tenure with the Nets. Evans refused to tell anyone why he shaved his face-locks off, but promised to bring the beard back ASAP.

Sure enough, within two months the beard's back to his lumberjacky, Duck-Dynasty-esque glory.

Matt Stucko of YES Network had a chance to talk to Reggie about Movember, and Evans offered information and analysis on the fine art of beard growth and maintenance. Watch above.

Fifteen hours after the Brooklyn Nets were blown out by the Minnesota Timberwolves, Nets power forward Reggie Evans was back in his hometown of Pensacola, FL, to spread a little holiday cheer to those in need.

In the first Reggie Evans Foundation Turkey Giveaway, over 300 delicious meals were given out in forty-five minutes.

“I just want to be hands on. I want everybody to see me and have these little kids see me, right by my old neighborhood,” Evans said.

Nets win or loss, one thing is for sure: Pensacola is thankful for Reggie Evans.

LOS ANGELES, C.A. -— No player, coach, or GM will ever tell you openly that a team's priorities lie anywhere other than squarely on winning a game on any given night. Saturday the Brooklyn Nets tiptoed carefully along that line, bolstering the suspicion that they're playing the long game: less concerned with nightly results and fixated instead on the holistic process.

Ask any of the Nets about their 110-103 defeat at the hands of the Los Angeles Clippers, and he'll stress that this was a process loss, with the obligatory lip service that a win is a win and a loss yields nothing.
