Brooklyn's Inconsistency Finally Catches Up

The stage was set for the Nets to become the 9th team in NBA playoff history to come back from a 3-1 deficit, hosting Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals in the Barclay's Center.  Kirk Hinrich was out with a calf injury, Luol Deng rested in a Chicago hospital suffering from the flu, and Derrick Rose dressed in a suit ̶  still unable to play one year after tearing his ACL. Despite the Bulls' injuries and momentum from a two game winning streak, it was not to be.   

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 Nets Can Hang

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.”

The Nets Draw First Blood

The atmosphere at 620 Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn was nothing like anyone had seen before. The Nets were cheered in their home arena, Knicks fans were drowned out, and Carmelo Anthony was showered in boos just 3 miles from where he was born. It wasn’t something unique and isolated in history; rather, something new.

A rivalry? Deron Williams tried to downplay the hype. “It’s one game, it was a good win for us…we can’t just be excited like we just won a championship. We didn’t win the championship of New York.”

Tonight at 7:30 ET the Nets open up their 2012-2013 campaign at home against the Toronto Raptors. This however is no ordinary start to the season for a franchise that hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2007. As the Nets take the floor tonight it will not be in New Jersey at the Izod Center, but Brooklyn on Atlantic Avenue, home of the new 4.9 billion dollar Barclays Center.

Is Something Getting the Best of You?

It is said that winning can mask all pains. Losing does just the opposite. It exposes all weaknesses, and the Nets have some glaring ones. As the season drags on, the losses keep coming. The team has now dropped 8 of their first 10, sporting the 28th worst offense in basketball (87 PPG), shooting under 40 percent from the field.
