Wayne Ellington 7 Three-Pointers (HIGHLIGHTS): Around the ‘Nets


First: relive Weez’s night. Then: here’s the latest Nets news and notes from around the ‘Nets:

  • Nets rookie Chris McCullough talks life, basketball, loss and redemption in a lengthy interview with ESPN.

  • Jarrett Jack on Thomas Robinson following the Nets’ 111-105 win over the Miami Heat: “Thomas Robinson wad tremendous. A guy that hadn’t played in a few games coming in with the activity and presence he had was tremendous.” Sounds tremendous.

  • Shane Larkin is starting to find his pick-and-roll legs.

  • Joe Johnson currently has the longest streak in the NBA with at least one field goal made: well over 900 games. But he’s extended that streak with just one made basket four times this season. Kind of feels like Cal Ripken extending his games played streak over Lou Gehrig by playing the first inning and getting out. It also feels like that streak might come to a close soon.

  • This is a particularly strange article trying to argue that the Nets are entertaining, citing one of the team’s few sellouts this year as evidence. (The Nets rank near the bottom of the league in overall attendance.)

  • If you need plans for New Years and like rusted exteriors, Jimmy Buffett will be at Barclays Center as the clock strikes midnight.
