NETS OPEN 2017-18 SEASON VS. INDIANA

NETS OPEN 2017-18 SEASON VS. INDIANA

The Nets will open the 2017-18 season on October 18 in Indiana vs. the Pacers, then come home two days later to face the Magic on Opening Night at Barclays. But the big game —”not just another game,” as D’Angelo Russell put it— comes two weeks later on November 3 when the Nets and their new star open a five-game Ewst Coast trip in L.A. vs. the Lakers. That’s one of two big games on the schedule unveiled Monday. The other is Brook Lopez’s return to Brooklyn. Fans will have to wait until February 2 for that reunion. In other big games, DeMarre Carroll, who criticized the...

Nets Defense: The Good, The Bad and The Unknown

Nets Defense: The Good, The Bad and The Unknown

Charles Maniego takes a look at where the Nets stand as free agency nears its end. This is Part IV. Monday, he’ll examine the Nets playbook. This off-season, the Brooklyn Nets took a few steps in building a future foundation. Although the team lost franchise leading scorer Brook Lopez, the Nets added solid perimeter players. D’Angelo Russell and Allen Crabbe were the two upside youngsters acquired via trade. DeMarre Carroll and Timofey Mozgov, two overpaid, but still decent players could be solid stopgaps while younger Nets mature. The Nets’ offense seems ready to take a step forward...

In Mid-Summer Power Rankings, John Schuhmann ranks Nets 25th

In Mid-Summer Power Rankings, John Schuhmann ranks Nets 25th

John Schuhmann isn’t waiting until Opening Night or even preseason. He’s got a head start on Power Rankings ... and he puts the Nets at 25th, between the Knicks and the Suns. For Schuhmann, it’s all about D’Angelo Russell... Key addition(s): D'Angelo Russell, Allen Crabbe and DeMarre Carroll Key departure(s): Brook Lopez Key question: Can Russell take a significant step forward? The Nets haven't signed a single free agent (other than training camp fodder), but have used their cap space to trade for four guys who may start (Russell, Crabbe, Carroll and Timofey Mozgov), losing one...
Brook Lopez and the rest of the Lakers are impressed with their ‘breathtaking’ new practice facility

Brook Lopez and the rest of the Lakers are impressed with their ‘breathtaking’ new practice facility

The roster is impressed with its new home. Most of the Los Angeles Lakers organization moved themselves and their shockingly huge collections of Slava Medvedenko jerseys into the team’s new facility last week, but players only were able to start working out there on Monday. It didn’t take long for them to like what they saw from the UCLA Health Training Center. "It's really breathtaking. It's got their new car smell where everything is pristine and nice,” said Lakers center Brook Lopez in a video on the Lakers’ Twitter account. “It's really a site to behold. It's a blessing to be...

How many wins? Maybe 30, says ESPN

How many wins? Maybe 30, says ESPN

Kevin Pelton of ESPN is out with what he calls “an early look at 2017-18 NBA projections” and thinks the Nets will win more, but not much more, games than last year, predicting 29.5 wins. While the Nets have improved their roster, the loss of Brook Lopez will weigh heavily on them, Pelton projects. He also calls the Nets big man rotation “perhaps” the worst in the NBA. Here’s his explanation... The additions of guard D'Angelo Russell and forward DeMarre Carroll (rated better than league average, despite the Nets' getting a first-round pick to take on his contract) figure to...

Jeremy Lin: “Everyone thinks we’ll suck ... So no pressure”

Jeremy Lin: “Everyone thinks we’ll suck ... So no pressure”

Jeremy Lin, speaking in Shanghai, again predicted the Nets will make the playoffs in a media dialogue with Chinese fans, and went further, making it clear he hopes the Nets can play “exceptionally well.” “I still feel like we can make the playoffs. I know everyone will laugh, but that’s no problem. If I believe we can make the playoffs, this is most important.... “Hopefully we can perform exceptionally well. Everyone thinks we’ll suck, so I feel like we don’t have a lot of pressure.” Lin also said that while he will miss Brook Lopez, he’s very happy with how the Nets...

Brooklyn’s (New) Backcourt: Jeremy Lin and D’Angelo Russell

Brooklyn’s (New) Backcourt: Jeremy Lin and D’Angelo Russell

With the Nets’ off-season *seemingly* settled, the focus will now shift to the on-court product, rather than the front office maneuvers. (I know, Sean Marks said “you’re never really done” but the core of the roster seems to be in place…for now.) The regular season will start in less than three months, but many storylines are being hotly debated. Do the Nets need another big man? Who can replace Brook Lopez’s production? Will Allen Crabbe make a leap forward as a Net? What emoji best characterizes each Brooklyn Nets player? But the biggest question, by far has been “Can...

Timofey Mozgov: “I’m working on my three point shot”

Timofey Mozgov: “I’m working on my three point shot”

Remember, a couple of weeks ago, a video emerged on Instagram showing Timofey Mozgov shooting —and making— three pointers? The question was, is this just a big guy playfully testing his range or is it something we should expect to see next season? In an interview published this weekend on Sport Express, the Russian sports site, Mozgov answers the question. Yes, it’s part of how the Nets plan to use him. Just as Kenny Atkinson gave Brook Lopez the green light last season, he’s asked the Russian 7-footer to include the three-pointer in his arsenal. “I’ve started working on...
