Tough schedule follows tough loss

Tough schedule follows tough loss

Photo by Emilee Chinn/ The easy part of the schedule is over and the Nets would no doubt feel better if they had beaten Charlotte on Wednesday night at home. But that opportunity was lost when Devonte Graham destroyed with a 40-point performance. Now, the Nets have a back-to-back weekend of the Raptors in Toronto on Saturday and the 76ers home on Sunday. The division best have a combined record of 35-15 and stars aplenty. The Nets missing stars won’t play in either game but Wilson Chandler will likely make his Nets debut on Sunday. “We want to continue to do better,” Spencer...

Mazzeo: Sean Marks preaching patience —and culture of resiliency— at Nets’ quarter pole

Photo by Mikhail Japaridze\TASS via In an interview with Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo! Sports, Sean Marks is preaching patience and resiliency as the Nets reach the end of the season’s first quarter, particularly with injuries to Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert. Marks, as he does, wouldn’t put a timetable on Irving’s return, saying it will be —somewhat— up to the Nets guard. “I think the timeline for his recovery is somewhat up to him, but also up to his body and how that progresses. It could happen quickly or it could take some time,” Nets general manager Sean Marks told Yahoo...

Long Island Nets bring back Ismael Sanogo and Joe Cremo, waive Jahmal McMurray and Angel Nunez

With an important game against the 76ers on Sunday, Nets fans remain optimistic

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via The Brooklyn Nets head into the weekend just two games over .500, with a 13-11 record. Coming out of Wednesday night’s home loss to the Hornets, the Nets embark on a critical back-to-back, home-and-away set this weekend which concludes with a home game on Sunday against the 76ers. Get tickets here for Sunday’s Nets vs. 76ers game. It’s been rather impressive that the Nets have been able to stay afloat without two (well, three...) of their key pieces, Kyrie Irving and Caris LeVert. And it doesn’t seem so, how should I put it, blues skies...

As Nets seek to cut a player, word that teams are interested in Rodions Kurucs

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via On Thursday, ESPN’s Bobby Marks reported that at least two NBA teams are doing deep dives into Rodions Kurucs’ legal situation, an indication that the 6’10” forward is on the block as the Nets seek to get down to 15 players by Sunday. After starting 46 games and averaging 8.5 PPG last year, Kurucs has been an afterthought this season, shuttling back and forth from the G League. Over the summer, Kurucs was arrested following domestic violence allegations in a case that remains ongoing. Approaching the deadline, sources say that at least two...

The Woj Podcast: Taurean Prince talks about bedding, being homeless and Nets future

Photo by Mike Stobe/ In a podcast with Adrian Wojnarowski, Taurean Prince describes a routine he has ... whether he’s sleeping in a hotel or on his own home. He jumps on the bed. It’s a reminder to him that even life’s simple comforts can be transitory. You don’t take a box spring from granted when you’ve lived in homeless shelters. “I literally go jump on it just to see how soft it is,” Prince told Woj, who asked what’s behind the routine. “I think it was the time that me and my father had to spend some time in the Salvation Army not having the bed that you always...

The most versatile air horn was alive and well at Barclays Center on Wednesday

The most versatile air horn was alive and well at Barclays Center on Wednesday

So, I’m at home watching the Nets on YES because I’m sick with strep. Usually I’d be there and probably not notice these types of things, but boy was I glad that I did. It was bizarre, yet hilarious on so many levels. What is it that I speak of? Only the most versatile air horn in the air horn game. Serious stuff. I always try to look for DeAndre Jordan and Jarrett Allen’s pregame routine in which DJ makes sure Jarrett’s fro is in-check moments before tip. Every game is something different. Wednesday, DJ grabbed an air horn to use as a hairdryer for the immaculate fro....

Devonte’ Graham, Hornets, erase 20-point deficit, stun Nets in Brooklyn collapse.

Photo by Nathaniel S. Butler/NBAE via The Nets have won games they should have lost but Wednesday they lost a game they should have won. And it was ugly. Final score: Charlotte 113, Brooklyn 108. In an odd schedule quirk, the Nets found themselves playing the Charlotte Hornets already for the third time this month. With the previous two meetings landing in Brooklyn’s favor, the Nets were looking to make it three in a row against the Hornets. Charlotte came into the matchup sitting at just 10-16, but displaying a tenacity that mirrors the Nets of old; pesky and competitive, despite...

Nets look for season series win vs Hornets

Good teams win comfortably. They also beat teams expected to compete for championships. On Sunday afternoon, the Brooklyn Nets played host to the Northwest Division leading Denver Nuggets. It was a great matinee game and Brooklyn pulled it out late and came away with arguably their best victory of the season. It doesn’t get any easier after this as they start an Eastern Conference semifinals back-to-back that will take them to Toronto before coming home to face the 76ers on Sunday night. Let’s make it happen. The opponent tonight will be the Charlotte Hornets. Charlotte had a quick...
