Harden, Rockets too much for Nets: 123-113

Harden, Rockets too much for Nets: 123-113

BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- They played well, but it wasn’t enough against the second-best team in the West. Down 10 in the second quarter, the Nets finished the half down two. They fought their way back and even took a four-point lead in the third quarter, but the Rockets finished out the quarter on a 12-2 run and took a double-digit lead. They never looked back from there, although the Nets brought it within six with under a little over a minute remaining. Then, James Harden put the dagger home with 33 seconds to go up 10. The Rockets (39-13) won their fifth straight game over the Brooklyn Nets...

Acy out, Harris starts, Mozgov (maybe) in, says Atkinson

Acy out, Harris starts, Mozgov (maybe) in, says Atkinson

Quincy Acy is out for Tuesday night’s game against the Houston Rockets. According to Brooklyn Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson, Acy is out with a sprained right middle finger and will be … wait for it … day-to-day! So with Rondae Hollis-Jefferson already out, and Tyler Zeller dealt and gone to Milwaukee, the Nets may look deep (deep … deep) into their bag of tricks tonight and play Timofey Mozgov, the former starting center who hasn’t played since January 10, and whose seen action in 25 games this season. Regarding Acy’s injury, Atkinson initially declined to say who would...

Nets can’t afford a night off against Houston

BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- The last two times the Nets and Rockets have played, they’ve set new records in combined three-point attempts. In January, 2017 they combined to shoot 88 three-pointers, broken in their November, 2017 meeting in Houston, where the teams attempted 89 from beyond the arc. The Nets lost both games, but it’s clear that there are plenty of worse match-ups across the NBA than tonight against Houston. They’re even the top two three-point shooting teams (in terms of attempts) in the NBA, with Houston jacking up 43.0 per game, and the Nets a distant second at 33.9 per...

Nets play host to Rockets in battle of 3-pointers

Not so super. The Brooklyn Nets played a noon game against the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, but couldn’t do much against them and lost by 15 points at home. When this one wraps up, they’re off to Detroit to face the new look Pistons. The opponent this evening will be the Houston Rockets. The Rockets have been sensational this year and are one of the favorites to make it to the Finals. They’ve been off the past few days after they mollywhopped the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night. Those off days will come in handy because as soon as this one ends, they’re off to Miami to play the...
