Jeremy Lin BobbleHead and the Taiwanese Culture Night

Jeremy Lin BobbleHead and the Taiwanese Culture Night

COUNTDOWN CLOCK   It is unfortunate that Jeremy Lin has to sit out the Houston Rockets game due to his hamstring injury because the Taiwanese Culture Night will honor him with Jeremy Lin bobblehead nights for the first 10000 fans sponsored by Kenda Tires. The planning for the Jan 15 Taiwanese Culture Night not only involves JLin bobblehead giveaway for the first 10K fans, but also Santaizi dancersand Taiwanese rapper Dwagie at half-time show. https://twitter.com/NBCAsianAmerica/status/819940868325015552 But none of that has dampened the enthusiasm Borcheng Hsu has for the 28-year-old Taiwanese-American NBA star, who first exhilarated basketball fans in 2012 during his time with the New ... »

G38 Brooklyn Nets (8-29) Hopes for New Orleans Pelicans (15-24) Minus ADavis

G38 Brooklyn Nets (8-29) Hopes for New Orleans Pelicans (15-24) Minus ADavis

COUNTDOWN CLOCK The Nets looked listless in the 20pt-loss vs the Hawks. Perhaps they are demoralized playing a team with similar motion offense system but much better execution that Kenny Atkinson helped to coach last season. Rebounding is certainly the #1 issue in Nets losses; they are 3-22 when getting outrebounded. The loss of Trevor Booker in the Hawks game contributed to the rebounding disadvantage (11 at 1st half and 5 overall in the game; 33-22 in the first half and 53-48 overall). The Quincy Acy debut was very refreshing. In only 1.5 min, he contributed 4pts (1-1 3FG, 1-3 FTs). He came in, defended hard, set a great screen for SKil’s layup, drained a clutch 3, didn’t forc... »

G37 Brooklyn Nets (8-28) Hosts the Formidable Atlanta Hawks (21-16)

G37 Brooklyn Nets (8-28) Hosts the Formidable Atlanta Hawks (21-16)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK   The struggle continues for the Brooklyn Nets as they failed to beat the 76ers. The Nets waived Anthony Bennet to end their experiment to develop the former #1 pick of 2013 class in order to sign Quincy Acy to 10-day contract who showed improved 3pt-shooting in the D-League to complement his rebounding and shot-blocking skills. The Nets clearly want to shore up their weakness in defense by providing toughness. It will be interesting to watch their next moves of players to trade or sign to further improve their defense. It is admirable that Coach Kenny Atkinson can rally his troops to fight hard despite being undermanned without Jeremy Lin and Rondae-Hollis Jefferson. Tr... »

G36 Brooklyn Nets (8-27) Need A Win vs Philadelphia 76ers (9-25)

G36 Brooklyn Nets (8-27) Need A Win vs Philadelphia 76ers (9-25)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK The Nets desperately need a win to get closer to the 76ers record if they want to shed the label as the owner of the worst record in the NBA but it will not be easy to face Joel Embiid, Nerlens Noel and the 76ers. Embiid had his career-high 33 pts against the Nets at home on Dec 18 so the Nets would need a solid game-plan to slow down Embiid. The Nets would also need a huge game from Brook Lopez since the Nets record is 1-13 when Lopez does not reach 20pts. Jeremy Lin will miss his 5 straight games and he has not been seen in recent team practice yet so his return could be a while. ESPN.com Game Preview article: Lopez scored 17 points Friday, marking the season-high fourth st... »

G35 CLE Cavaliers vs BKN Nets

G35 CLE Cavaliers vs BKN Nets

COUNTDOWN CLOCK It will be another tough game for the Brooklyn Nets to face LeBron James and Cleveland Cavaliers on the back end of back-to-back games, without Jeremy Lin and Rondae-Hollis Jefferson. FoxSports.com Game Preview article: The Brooklyn Nets will look to snap a four-game losing streak when they host the banged-up Cleveland Cavaliers. The Cavs won the first meeting, but the Nets showed last season that when they play in Barclay’s Center, anything is possible. The Nets, losers in 9 of their last 10, will host the defending champions, winners in 13 of their last 16.  This game marks the first of a 6-game road trip for the Cavaliers. KEY OF THE GAME: It would be extremely tough to wi... »
