The Brooklyn Nets are showing us exactly who they are when adversity hits

The Brooklyn Nets are showing us exactly who they are when adversity hits

Photo by Streeter Lecka/ Nets 111, Hornets 104. The Brooklyn Nets are showing us exactly who they are — and who they’ve been under Kenny Atkinson. First, it was Caris LeVert who went down with a thumb injury. Surgery followed. Then, Kyrie Irving went down with a shoulder injury. No timetable has been revealed. And so, Kenny and the Nets have been forced to step up in the eyes of adversity — the same way they did it last year. Brooklyn improved to 12-10 on the season following a 111-104 victory over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night. They improved to 8-3 without Irving and 6-0...

Live Game Thread: Brooklyn Nets at Charlotte Hornets, 7:00 PM EST

Photo by Streeter Lecka/ Still no Kyrie Irving (shoulder) for the Brooklyn Nets as they take on the Charlotte Hornets on Friday night. Still no problem? Spencer Dinwiddie has been great - maybe an All-Star? Shhh... - and the Nets are back over .500 after a win over the Hawks on Wednesday. Not ready to call this one a cakewalk, however, but the Hornets are in a weird limbo that in unenviable. They are in between being a good team and being a bad one; they’re just a team. Game Preview As the Hornets go about their rebuild, it’s essential that they find good young players....

Zach Lowe ribs Dzanan Musa about his ‘ambition’

Zach Lowe ribs Dzanan Musa about his ‘ambition’

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via Zach Lowe, in his weekly “Ten NBA things I like and don’t like,” gently ribs Dzanan Musa for his “ambition-to-talent ratio,” as evidenced by his willingness to fire up three’s despite a percentage under 20 percent... Hypothesis: Musa has the largest ambition-to-talent ratio of any current player. One of the unexpected pleasures in Brooklyn’s wave of injuries has been watching Musa, thrust into duty, attempting acts of brazen individualism usually reserved for superstars. My man will go 1-on-3 in transition even if all three defenders...

Nets take a trip to Charlotte to face Hornets

Photo by Mike Stobe/ A comfortable win? I didn’t know that was allowed. The Brooklyn Nets began a brief two game road trip Wednesday night and came away with a win in Atlanta against the reeling Hawks. The level of difficulty will increase a great amount on Sunday afternoon against the Denver Nuggets. Should be a good one. The opponent tonight will be the Charlotte Hornets. The team is still trying to figure some things out, and it’s likely they find themselves back in the lottery this spring. They won their last game against the Golden State Warriors on Wednesday night. They’ve...

Solving the Nets rotational ‘crisis’

Solving the Nets rotational ‘crisis’

Photo by Steven Ryan/ Matt Brooks looks at the possibilities of who fits where when Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert return ... and who might be headed out when Wilson Chandler’s suspension ends. To most civilians, December 15 is a fairly meaningless date. Technically, it’s about a week before the start of Hanukkah (which begins on December 22) and 10 days before Christmas. According to NationalToday’s Holiday list, December 15 houses two revered festivities (I’m kidding, by the way): National Cupcake Day and of course, a long-time staple of American culture, National Cat… Herders...

Escape from Mississauga: Long Island Nets end eight-game losing streak, beat Raptors 905

Escape from Mississauga: Long Island Nets end eight-game losing streak, beat Raptors 905

It came down to the 0.5 seconds and one free throw but the Long Island Nets get their revenge on the the Raptors 905 and in the process ended their eight-game losing streak, 117-106. The game, a rare morning affair, was played on the Raptors home court in Mississauga, Ontario, Justin Anderson, an NBA veteran, missed his third free throw with 0.5 seconds remaining to seal Long Island’s second win of the season. With the win, the Nets snap their worst losing streak in franchise history, eight games, and head back to Uniondale in hopes of picking up their first home win Friday night. Long...

Garrett Temple is flying under the radar and it’s time we give him his due

Photo by Emilee Chinn/ June 30, 2019 will forever be remembered as one of the greatest days in Nets history. Roughly an hour before the official 6 p.m. start of NBA Free Agency, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowksi reported that Brooklyn had won the day, secured the big fish, and pulled off the “clean sweep” of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and DeAndre Jordan. Brooklyn is making a clean sweep tonight: Brooklyn will sign Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and DeAndre Jordan, league sources tell ESPN.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 30, 2019 Caught up in all the hoopla was a fourth Nets...

Nets say little about Kyrie Irving’s injury ... What’s up?

Nets say little about Kyrie Irving’s injury ... What’s up?

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via The Nets are 7-3 since the loss of Kyrie Irving nearly three weeks ago. That’s the good news. There’s no indication when the six-time All-Star will return to the court. That’s the bad news. Brian Lewis of the Post looked into the situation and believes that the answer to the question, When will we see Kyrie again? is not for a while. And Lewis castigates the Nets brass for being opaque in discussing the injury. The Nets have been about as transparent as a brick wall when it comes to Kyrie Irving’s shoulder injury. But the star’s absence...

Garrett Temple leads the charge in a crucial team win over the Atlanta Hawks, 130-118

Garrett Temple leads the charge in a crucial team win over the Atlanta Hawks, 130-118

Photo by Scott Cunningham/NBAE via With Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert out indefinitely, it’s crucial the Nets get wins where the schedule is light while they recover. They’re thin and guys are forced to step up in bigger roles — but that’s been Brooklyn’s identity under Kenny Atkinson. Safe to say, a 130-117 victory over the 5-17 Hawks went a long way for a Nets team that is 7-3 in the 10 games Irving his missed — an 11-10 record on the season. The Nets struggled in the early portion of the game. Spencer Dinwiddie and Joe Harris combined for just nine points on 3-of-15...

Kevin Garnett pushes movie, makes claims

Kevin Garnett pushes movie, makes claims

Photo by Elsa/ The back pages of New York’s tabloids are filled with Kevin Garnett’s comments on Kyrie Irving ... that he didn’t have the “cojones” to play in Boston — ”Boston’s a tough town, Dawg”— and that Kyrie and KD should have chosen to play with the Knicks rather than the Nets because “the first superstar to hit New York and be vibing is going to be bigger than life.” Well, of course, Knick fans are going to seize on to what the former Celtic, Net and Timberwolf had to say. They’ve got nothing else. NOTHING. Their team has the worst record in the NBA....

Nets head down south to face the Hawks

Nets head down south to face the Hawks

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports That was disappointing. The Brooklyn Nets had the game in hand late against the Miami Heat, but Brooklyn let go of the rope and wound up losing a winnable game on Sunday afternoon. After this, they’re heading up to Charlotte to face the Hornets on Friday before coming back home for another Sunday matinee. Kyrie Irving won’t be available for either game, meaning he’s missed half the Nets games so far. The opponent tonight will be the Atlanta Hawks. It’s been a ROUGH year for Lloyd Pierce’s guys, but maybe things are starting to get better. They beat...

Losses keep mounting for Long Island Nets as they fall to Wisconsin Herd, 125-116

Losses keep mounting for Long Island Nets as they fall to Wisconsin Herd, 125-116

Long Island Nets The Long Island Nets extend their losing streak to eight games Tuesday, falling to the Wisconsin Herd, 125-116 in Uniondale. With the loss, the Nets are now on to their worst losing streak in franchise history. They’re also the only team in the G League who haven’t won at home. Sean Marks was in attendance for the game, although it’s not certain why ... whether he was there to scout a Herd player, check on the progress of his two-ways or Rodions Kurucs or simply as a fan. Despite dropping the game —and again blowing a lead, the Nets had six players in...

Billy King blames Vladimir Putin for Nets’ decline ... No, really!

Billy King blames Vladimir Putin for Nets’ decline ... No, really!

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ How’d we miss this? Last August, on a Philly-based podcast, “Rights to Ricky Sanchez,” Billy King was asked about the 2013 Boston trade, which the podcast host suggested was the “seminal worst trade of all time.” (No argument here!) But the host, Spike Eskin, also acknowledged that the Nets had a plan when they sent three firsts, all unprotected, and a swap of firsts to Boston back then: open a two-year title window, win a lot of games and hope the picks weren’t too high. Then with Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett off the books in 2016, they would make a...

TRENDING UP, TRENDING DOWN: What’s helping, hurting Nets surge

Photo by Steven Ryan/ Matt Brooks takes a break from Thanksgiving Break to once again look at who —and what— are helping Nets recent surge. Thanksgiving is a celebration of all the great things in life: mouth-watering food, family, drinks and perhaps a sprinkle of football. But this year, that sacred holiday meant just a smidge more. Your Brooklyn Nets, a team that jumped out the gates to the tune of middling success amidst a fairly painless schedule, faced their first real challenge of the season. Since November 27, Brooklyn has exclusively battled against surefire east coast...
