  • Moke Hamilton writing over at SNY recognizes game: “it’s time to wake up and stop sleeping on Brooklyn.”

  • The Brooklyn Nets D-League Affiliate Springfield Armor lost their home opener to the Skyforce, 118-111. They fall to 1-1. Christian Polk led the Armor with 21 points, and former New Jersey Net Ben Uzoh tallied 17 points, 7 rebounds, and 8 assists in the loss.

  • Avery Johnson on last night: “We did a much better job of coming out and really being focused and taking care of the ball. We didn’t really didn’t really have our normal Brooklyn Nets’ focus, but we came out focused in the third (quarter) … which enabled us to get our defense in.”
