The Nets Finally Have More Threes Than Stephen Curry

AP

The Nets are finally as good as Stephen Curry. Curry got off to one of the hottest starts in NBA history this year and has kept it running, having far and away the most productive year of any player. That includes a ridiculous 129 three-pointers made in Golden State’s first 26 games. Joe Johnson’s long-range […]

CurryWatch: Stephen Curry still has more threes than the entire Nets roster

You might say that reigning MVP Stephen Curry had an off night in the 114-98 Warriors win over the Nets Sunday night. He finished with a game-high 28 points and two assists, both below his season averages. But Curry did do one thing at about his standard pace: he hit five three-pointers in nine attempts. […]

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson OUT vs. Warriors

The Nets were already big underdogs going into Sunday’s game, but it just got a bit harder. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will sit out against the Golden State Warriors after spraining his right ankle in team practice Saturday afternoon. Hollis-Jefferson had made 14 consecutive starts before spraining the ankle, which also gave him problems in preseason. As […]

The cross-borough New York Knicks took down the Brooklyn Nets Friday night 108-91, laying to rest any talk of a regional rivalry after only 12 minutes. The Knicks made seven of nine three-pointers to close the […]

A rivalry may or not be imminent between the Brooklyn Nets (5-13) and New York Knicks (9-10), but there’s certainly a sniff of something as evidence by the national TV broadcast. But while fans are abuzz, the players appear to be over it. “I don’t know if it’s a rivalry amongst the players,” Jarrett Jack […]

Jarrett Jack: “I’m just now fully getting healthy”

AP

In a dark season, Brooklyn Nets guard Jarrett Jack has emerged as a surprise bright spot in the last two games. In the weekend’s losses to the Sacramento Kings and Golden State Warriors, Jack totaled 49 points, 21 assists, three steals, and just three turnovers, and made up for a crucial late-game eight-second violation against […]

Late-game confusion turns Nets upset into upset Nets

AP

The talk should have been about how great that final play was, how all the pinwheeling around Brook Lopez was just a cunning misdirection for Lopez to pull off a sneaky push-off and create perhaps the league’s easiest shot: an open layup at the height of the jump. Instead, the focus will lie squarely on […]

CurryWatch Update: Stephen Curry extends lead on Nets team in 3-pointers made

AP

Earlier this year, we posed a question named “CurryWatch” at The Brooklyn Game: could otherworldly Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry outshoot the entire Brooklyn Nets team from three-point range? At least so far, the answer is yes. Saturday night provided a perfect opportunity to watch CurryWatch in action from both sides, as the Nets […]
