G32 Brooklyn Nets (8-23) on a Tough Road Game vs WAS Wizards (15-16)

G32 Brooklyn Nets (8-23) on a Tough Road Game vs WAS Wizards (15-16)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK   The Nets lost a close game on the road on a buzzer-beater against the Bulls 99-101 but it was encouraging to see how the Nets rallied and played well in Lin’s absence after he reinjured his hamstring for the 2nd time. The good news is upon evaluation, Jeremy Lin’s injury is not as severe as the last one that caused him to miss 17 games. It is a bit of consolation... »

G31 Brooklyn Nets (8-22) Has to Face Chicago Bulls (15-16) Without Lin

G31 Brooklyn Nets (8-22) Has to Face Chicago Bulls (15-16) Without Lin

COUNTDOWN CLOCK i It was so unfortunate that Jeremy Lin reinjured his left hamstring after playing so well against the Hornets but his teammates played inspired to win the game 120-118  on Foye’s thrilling buzzer-better with 0.9 seconds left on the clock. Lin’s injury status is unknown since the team reportedly is waiting on MRI results to confirm the severity of the injury, In the mea... »

G30 Brooklyn Nets (7-22) vs Charlotte Hornets (17-13)

G30 Brooklyn Nets (7-22) vs Charlotte Hornets (17-13)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK The Nets could not overcome the 2nd night of a back-to-back game against the defending champ, Cleveland Cavaliers and lost badly 99-119 after trailing as many as 46 points in the game. The Nets need to forget about the bad game and seeks deep to play well at home as they did in the first half against the GS Warriors. But most importantly, the Nets need to solve the turnover issues ... »

G29 Brooklyn Nets (7-21) vs Cleveland Cavaliers (21-6)

G29 Brooklyn Nets (7-21) vs Cleveland Cavaliers (21-6)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK After a bad loss against Toronto Raptors, the Nets surprised the best team in the NBA, Golden State Warriors, for one half by taking 16pt lead (65-49)before losing the game by the same margin of 16 pts (101-117). The Nets played their best half-game but succumbed to many turnovers as GSW defense pressed them. Jeremy Lin did not have his sharp-shooting but still managed a near tripl... »

G28 Brooklyn Nets (7-20) Hosts the NBA Best Team in GSW Warriors (25-4)

G28 Brooklyn Nets (7-20) Hosts the NBA Best Team in GSW Warriors (25-4)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK The bad loss against the Raptors 104-116 minus Brook Lopez (rest) exposed the Nets biggest weakness in defense even more. The Raptors scored in the paint with ease without reliable big men to challenge the shots. For all his reputation of playing more offense than defense, Brook Lopez can still alters and blocks shots in the paint more than Scola and Justin Hamilton can do. The lac... »

G27 Brooklyn Nets (7-19) Faces a Tough Challenge vs Toronto Raptors (19-8)

G27 Brooklyn Nets (7-19) Faces a Tough Challenge vs Toronto Raptors (19-8)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK The Nets dropped a winnable game against the 76ers 107-108 and this one hurt a lot. The coach’s decision to start rookie backcourt (Whitehead and LeVert) in the start of 4th quarter proved to be very costly in allowing 13-0 run by the 76ers and they took an 8pt-lead. Coaches would need to get better in game-management and quick adjustment not to allow huge runs that can swing... »

G26 Brooklyn Nets (7-18) Needs a Win vs the 76ers (6-20)

G26 Brooklyn Nets (7-18) Needs a Win vs the 76ers (6-20)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK The Nets almost stole the win on the road against the Orlando Magic but they committed too many fouls in the 4th quarter and lost the game 111-118. Jeremy Lin played for 20 minutes but he is still finding his rhythm after coming back from injury and it certainly was hard to get a rhythm with only 20 minutes. He would need to start soon to set the tone for his team and play 28-32 mi... »

G25 Brooklyn Nets (7-17) Seeks 2nd Straight Win vs ORL Magic (11-16)

G25 Brooklyn Nets (7-17) Seeks 2nd Straight Win vs ORL Magic (11-16)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK The Nets seeks to find the 2nd straight win for the first time this season after pulling a win with an improved effort in their defense and rebounding against the Lakers. They finally held opponents under 100 points since Nov 4 game. They would need the same defensive effort and the return of Jeremy Lin if they hope to get their first consecutive win of the season on the road vs th... »

G24 Brooklyn Nets (6-17) Will Rely on Jeremy Lin vs LA Lakers (10-17)

G24 Brooklyn Nets (6-17) Will Rely on Jeremy Lin vs LA Lakers (10-17)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK It was an impressive performance by Jeremy Lin in his first game back from missing 17 games with hamstring injury vs the high-powered Houston Rockets. With limited 20 minutes, he still contributed 10pts, 7assists, 1 block, 1 steal in a 118-122 loss. The Nets almost pulled it off but late-game execution and questionable non-calls by the refs derailed the comeback. The Nets looked li... »

G23 Jeremy Lin’s Return for Brooklyn Nets (6-16) vs Houston Rockets (17-7)

G23 Jeremy Lin’s Return for Brooklyn Nets (6-16) vs Houston Rockets (17-7)

Finally, Jeremy Lin announced he will return to the Nets lineup tonight  with limited minutes against his old team, Houston Rockets! We should not expect too much from Jeremy Lin as he will need to get back to game-conditioning and be careful not to aggravate his hamstring injury. But the Nets would certainly get a boost in their plays with their veteran leader back on the floor. Nets guard Jeremy... »
