Brooklyn Nets

The Nets Snap Four-Game Home Slide, but Deron’s Back Hurts

by Kenny Ducey

Reggie Evans put it best when he said Deron Williams was “hot like fish grease.” The Nets’ star point guard jogged the memory of a sellout crowd Friday night, reminding Brooklyn of the elite scorer he was with the Utah Jazz. Williams carried the team on his back, connecting on nine first-half three pointers, an NBA record for most in a half. He finished with 11, and a season-high 42 points on the game, as the Nets took down the Wizards 95-78.

Johnson Saves the Day as Lopez Steps Aside

Joe Johnson hit a 15-footer from the free-throw as time expired, and the Nets squeaked by the visiting Bucks Tuesday in OT 113-111. He's now 8-for-9 shooting in the final 30 seconds of one-possession games. His 8th attempt in those same scenarios? A trifecta with 1.3 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game to an extra session. He showed the 17,334 faithful fans on-hand at the Barclays Center just how clutch he was.

The Brooklyn Nets made a statement Friday night in front of a sellout crowd at the Barclays Center, taking down the Bulls 93-89 despite some lackluster performances from their starters. With the victory, the Nets improved to 28-19, but more importantly they picked up a much-needed win against a team over .500.

Tyson Chandler over Brook Lopez: Right or Wrong?

by Kenny Ducey

I would make that face too, Brook.

When All-Star reserves were announced yesterday, several Nets fans were up in arms. Some are just madly in love with Deron Williams, who’s clearly been under-performing this year, while others want justification for Joe Johnson’s large contract. The majority, though, fairly question the inclusion of Tyson Chandler over Brook Lopez.

Nolan Silbernagel and Mike Valdetara ask Howard Beck whether the firing of Brooklyn’s Head Coach Avery Johnson was justified or premature.  They also talk about what possible replacement coaches could be, and if there is any chance the Nets land Phil Jackson.

They also talk about whether the preseason goals of Brooklyn were too unrealistic and if there was too much hype around this team after their hot start.

Antsy Nets Axe Avery Johnson

Mikhail Prokhorov and the rest of Brooklyn Nets ownership fired Head Coach Avery Johnson early this morning on the heels of blowout losses to the Celtics on Christmas day and the Bucks last night. During his press conference this afternoon, General Manager Billy King said: “I just thought he [Avery Johnson] wasn’t able to get through to the players… somehow it just wasn’t translating to the players on the floor, for whatever reason.”

Saturday during One on One, Amit and I had the distinct opportunity to speak with Yahoo Sports National Baseball writer Jeff Passan about the Winter Meetings that took place last week. We talked about the logistics of the what goes on in the hotel complex, inquired about the outfield market, and got the latest word on the Mets and Yankees. (This was taped just before Zack Greinke signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers).

Most people know Dan Lauria as the father in the iconic family drama “The Wonder Years,” the Fred Savage star vehicle. More recently, though, especially for New Yorkers as Dan mentions in our interview, he is now recognized quite handily as Vince Lombardi, for his portrayal in the Broadway hit two years ago.

New York City Back in a Basketball State of Mind

For what seems like forever now, New York City has been called a basketball town. But, that really hasn’t been the feeling around these parts for quite some time now. The Yankees own the hearts of most of the city, with seventeen postseason appearances during the last 18 seasons and 5 Championships.
