WE WERE WARNED! So Caris LeVert’s emergence should be no surprise

WE WERE WARNED! So Caris LeVert’s emergence should be no surprise

It’s only two games and there’s six months left in the regular season. But sometimes, two games can tell you a lot. The sample size is small, but it sure feels different. There are levels to (Lin)sanity-esque reigns, where players appear ... on a hot streak, in over their heads, playing out of their minds before crash landing back on earth at the hands of Mario Chalmers. Then again, sometimes you can tell when the start of something is the start of something. And of course, this time, we were warned. Caris LeVert’s teammates had been telling us for weeks this would happen. And...

Nets Game Grades: New season. New Caris

Nets Game Grades: New season. New Caris

Caris LeVert’s game winner lifts Nets over Knicks, 107-105. BROOKLYN NETS Grade: B The Nets were able to overcome subpar 2nd and 3rd quarters to defeat the crosstown rival Knicks in the home opener. On a night where the Nets had an unprecedented negative nineteen (!) turnover differential (22 to 3), Caris LeVert’s heroics willed the team to victory. Coming into the game, rebounding was main focus for the Nets and they did well in that department, outrebounding the Knicks 55-36. Enes Kanter still dominated with 29 points and 10 rebounds, but the Nets did a good job to limit the other...

Nets 107, Knicks 105: Scenes from an interborough barnburner

Nets 107, Knicks 105: Scenes from an interborough barnburner

A tough loss. A good game. The Knicks’ home-opener blowout win over Atlanta was a refresher in Easy Street. Tonight’s 107-105 loss in their road opener in Brooklyn was agony and ectasy and a little too much Caris LeVert. Even if you don’t win the fight, you want the other person to know they’ve been in a fight, and the Knicks fought all night. The Nets shot 70% in the opening frame and led virtually wire-to-wire throughout the first half. LeVert was bringing it early and often. .@CarisLeVert: STRONG.#WeGoHard pic.twitter.com/wzKEXfDqzF— Brooklyn Nets (@BrooklynNets) October 20,...

Nets 107, Knicks 105: ‘You live and you learn’

Nets 107, Knicks 105: ‘You live and you learn’

So close. Ah, the first gut=punch Knicks loss of the series. We had to get it over with at some point, right? I wish, however, it had come at the hands of a team a little less obnoxious than the Brooklyn Nets. Alas, it was meant to be. Caris LeVert converted the game-winning bucket with 1.0 seconds remaining, and Tim Hardaway’s desperation heave at the buzzer didn’t connect, sending Brooklyn to a 107-105 victory. New York tied the game a few seconds earlier, when Enes Kanter converted a pretty and-1 layup off a splendid pick-and-roll feed from Trey Burke. It was representative of a...

Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks Live Game Thread: Brooklyn, we’re back!

Brooklyn Nets vs. New York Knicks Live Game Thread: Brooklyn, we’re back!

WHO: Brooklyn Nets (0-1) vs. New York Knicks (1-0) WHAT: First home game of the 2018-19 season WHERE: Barclays Center, Brooklyn, NY WHEN: 7:30 p.m. EST HOW: YES, MSG; NBA League Pass THE STORY: Game Preview. Game 1 did not go quite as well as I’m sure the majority of us had hoped it would. That last play when Caris LeVert fell down before he could get a final shot off, ugh. Heartbreaking. And memory-triggering to be honest. Flashes of late-game disappointment from last season came flooding back. It’s time to move on though. If we dwell on all of this season’s shortcomings, we’re...
