For Joe Harris and Garrett Temple, bringing water to Africa is a priority

For Joe Harris and Garrett Temple, bringing water to Africa is a priority

Clay Cook Photography for Water Boys Back in the summer, Joe Harris got a lot of attention for his world travel. He was in China in both September and October, first for the FIBA World Cup, then the NBA China Games. But they weren’t the only stops on his itinerary. He spent time in Africa as well, Tanzania to be specific, on a mission beyond basketball ... bringing clean water to the continent. It didn’t get the attention his trips to China got but for Harris, the stop in Kilimanjaro was at least as rewarding. Harris is part of Hoops2O Hoops, aka “The Water Boys,” founded by...

Nets host 76ers on MLK Day

Weight room. The Milwaukee Bucks have been the best team in the NBA this season and that was on full display Saturday night when they smoked the Brooklyn Nets by 20. It was the team's third straight loss. Times are hard. The opponent today will be the Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers still hope to make a push for their first NBA Finals appearance since 2001, but the road to get there will be daunting. They've been in town all weekend and beat the Knicks at the Garden on Saturday. They wrap up their three game road ttip on Wednesday against Toronto. Where to follow the game YES Network on TV....

Kenny Atkinson: Spying scandal? Not in the NBA. It’s all legal!

Photo by Al Bello/ Different sports have different rules and what’s illegal —indeed a scandal— in one is common in another. So the baseball sign-stealing scandal that’s engulfed multiple teams in the MLB has been met with shrugs in the NBA. Sign stealing? Happens all the time, as Kenny Atkinson explained to Stefan Bondy. Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said there’s three layers of sign stealing in the NBA and they’re all legal. Advanced scouts — who spy the opposition during games days before the matchup against his team — will sit behind the bench and try to pick up plays....

Chris Chiozza: ‘I am trying to show and show them the player I am’

Chris Milholen who covers the Long Island Nets for NetsDaily recently spoke with the Nets two new two-ways. Chris Chiozza, who signed a two-way contract on January 3 and had his Nets debut Saturday vs. the Bucks, has made an impact in his two appearances with Long Island and has been the reinforcement Nets coach Shaun Fein believes he needs. The 5’11 two-way guard arrived to Long Island right before the Nets loss on January 5. Chiozza, who sat on the bench during the game, rolled his luggage to the locker room following the loss. Fein did not get a chance to sit down and chat with his...

Jeremiah Martin, who signed a two-way contract with the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, is determined to turn the Nets G League affiliate, the Long Island Nets, around and bring back winning to the island. When asked if Long Island has the potential to not only win but make a run for the G League playoffs, Martin believes the team can sneak into the playoffs. “Of course,” Martin said of his team. “We are just trying to win and hopefully get turned around and...

Kevin Durant’s status remains the same: Not this year

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports As Brian Lewis reports Sunday morning, the Nets went to extraordinary means Saturday to keep Kevin Durant’s progress a secret... The Nets closed down Barclays Center’s bowl around 1 p.m. so KD could work out privately with a trainer on the Nets court. It was described as “agility work.” Lewis noted ... Durant has worked out before games before, but it’s usually at HSS Training Center, or on the small practice court at Barclays. Today the #Nets closed off the bowl & let him go on the main court. When I asked him if he had a good workout, he just...

Bucks hand Nets 3rd straight loss in blowout fashion, 117-97

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via BROOKLYN, N.Y. — How do you get people to stop talking about the off-court drama? You beat a tough team on your home floor. They’ll have another chance on Monday. The 38-6 Milwaukee Bucks came into Brooklyn and handed the Nets their third straight loss, 117-97, Saturday night at Barclays Center. The Nets are 1-3 since Kyrie Irving has returned to the lineups; 0-3 against above .500 teams. This was never really a game. Milwaukee had Brooklyn’s stars locked down with a focal point on defending the perimeter and forcing turnovers. And Giannis...

Jarrett Allen says he and Kyrie Irving spoke, clarifies there’s “no bad blood”

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via After Wednesday’s loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, Kyrie Irving spoke about how the Nets need “one or two more pieces” to contend for a championship. In the quote, he named most of the Nets players but not Jarrett Allen and Joe Harris, both who have been around since the beginning of the Markinson era. “Collectively I feel we have great pieces, but it’s pretty glaring that we need more piece, two more pieces that will complement myself, KD, DJ (DeAndre Jordan), GT (Garrett Temple), Spencer (Dinwiddie), Caris (LeVert) and we’ll see how...

Live Game Thread: Brooklyn Nets vs. Milwaukee Bucks, 6:00 PM EST

The good news is, the Nets are home for the next three games. The bad news, well, is their opponents are among the three best teams in the NBA. Saturday evening they start this horrid stretch at Barclays against Giannis and the Bucks. You know, the 37-6 Milwaukee Bucks. Milwaukee has won 9 of their last 10, and are 17-4 on the road. It’s going to take more than “another piece” to beat these Bucks, but, hey, then again that’s why we play.

Nets face tall task against league leading Bucks

Technical difficulties. The Brooklyn Nets had a chance to sneak out of Philadelphia with a good win, but fell apart in the fourth (again) and suffered a dispiriting loss on Wednesday night against the 76ers. They'll see the Sixers again on Monday for MLK Day. The opponent tonight will be the Milwaukee Bucks. Yeah, these dudes are scary. Milwaukee owns the best record in the league and have spent the year beating the hell out of teams. They almost tricked off a huge lead against the Boston Celtics, but they held on for the win on Thursday night. Where to follow the game YES Network (and...

The win marked Long Island’s third home win, bringing them to 3-9 at home and 8-16 on the season. The Nets took over the game in the fourth quarter, playing very well on both ends.

Chiozza, signed by Brooklyn on January 4, had 26 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. “That is how you...

Kyrie Irving offers explanation of his comments, says his only purpose was to improve the team

Photo by Matteo Marchi/ Call it an explanation, a reversal, an apology —whatever you like— but Kyrie Irving laid out the rationale behind his post-games comments Wednesday, comments that appeared to diss some teammates and suggest the Nets had “glaring,” “transparent” issues that were holding them back from championship contention. Irving told reporters that he had explained to his team what he meant by the comments and didn’t mean to single anybody out by listing core players. And he admitted that yes, he probably should have/could have added a few more names to his...
