3 Takeaways from Brooklyn Beatdown of Atlanta Hawks

3 Takeaways from Brooklyn Beatdown of Atlanta Hawks

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via One team was serious; one team was not. One team was prepared; one team was not. The serious prepared team won. Thanks to Julius Caesar, we got Brooklyn Nets basketball for an extra day of the year tonight. Suddenly, what Brutus and those other Roman senators did to the guy doesn’t seem so bad. Watching this team lately has been quite a chore. Minus a “we’re bad, but not that bad” win over the Memphis Grizzlies, Brooklyn’s gotten stomped on by opponents left and right. They came into tonight’s contest four games outside...

Brooklyn Nets steamroll Atlanta Hawks 124-97 behind lights-out shooting

Photo by Steven Ryan/ The Nets deployed the masterful gambit of shooting 48% from three in a vital game against Atlanta. “We just can’t let our shot-making affect our overall game and our defense, and I feel like that’s what’s been happening. We’ve been missing shots that we usually make, and sometimes it can affect our overall game,” said Dorian Finney-Smith at Thursday’s shootaround prior to the first of two pivotal homes games against the Atlanta Hawks. And really, “pivotal” may be underselling it. The Nets entered Thursday’s game trailing the...

Brooklyn Nets know their season is on the line against Atlanta Hawks

Brooklyn Nets know their season is on the line against Atlanta Hawks

Photo by Eric Espada/NBAE via Brooklyn’s season, to the extent it still breathes, The Brooklyn Nets are fixated on one goal: making the Play-In Tournament. Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but the team does not own either of their 2024 NBA Draft picks, thus eliminating any incentive to tank the rest of the way. But the Nets are also a whopping 10.5 games out of eighth place in the Eastern Conference, so really, they’re focused on the 10-seed and snagging the right to play two road games for a chance to get demolished by the Boston Celtics in the first round...

Takeaways from Nets’ depressing loss to Orlando Magic

Takeaways from Nets’ depressing loss to Orlando Magic

Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports A re-watch didn’t make Brooklyn’s bitter loss taste any sweeter. Fortunately, I had to miss the Brooklyn Nets - Orlando Magic contest last night. Unfortunately, I am rewatching it now on Wednesday morning. From what I know, Brooklyn lost 108-81, and it was bad enough that most of my Nets-related Twitter/X timeline has spent the time since arguing about the direction of the franchise. So much for those good vibes in Memphis, I guess? Let’s get into it. First Quarter I have been a proponent of this lineup — Schröder/Twins/DFS/Clax...

Brooklyn Nets sleep through Orlando Magic thumping 108-81

Photo by Julio Aguilar/ Twice this season, the Brooklyn Nets outscored the Orlando Magic by 20 points in signature wins. Tonight was a signature loss. Pushing for a playoff spot with gritty play, featuring a young but not too young roster, and with a first time All-Star leading the way at small forward, the Orlando Magic checked many, if not all the boxes the Brooklyn Nets hoped to this year. But nope. In their Renaissance campaign, one that resembled the Nets of say 2018-19 like something aka the dark ages for Nets, Orlando’s winless record vs Brooklyn seemed one of...

3 Takeaways Brooklyn Nets Pendulum Win Over Memphis Grizzlies

3 Takeaways Brooklyn Nets Pendulum Win Over Memphis Grizzlies

It’s only one game but after three miserable ones, we’ll take it. Tonight’s contest featured two teams miles away from each other in one sense — yet shoulder to shoulder in another. While the Brooklyn Nets and Memphis Grizzlies might hail from different time zones, they’ve each established a second residency in the NBA’s “No Man’s Land” this year. With the injury bug taking it personally against Grit and Grind, the Grizz currently finds themselves gutting through a lost season minus Ja Morant, Desmond Bane, and company. However, there’s no need for full...
