G81 Nets Attempt to Spoil Celtics’ Chance of #1 Seed

Nets truly enjoyed ruining playoff team’s chances at the end of the season and they pulled a great 107-106 comeback win with 10-0 run in the fourth quarter against the Bulls. LeVert, Rondae-Hollis Jefferson, and Spence Dinwiddie played exceptionally well to shock the Bulls.

G80 Nets Tries To Tame the Surging Bulls to Reach 20 Wins

G80 Nets Tries To Tame the Surging Bulls to Reach 20 Wins

Nets lost to the Magic on the road 107-115 and failed to extend their winning streak to four.

Jeremy Lin played exceptionally well to finish with 32 points, 3 assists, 5 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block with excellent 11-20 shooting, and 5-9 three-point shooting. But Brook Lopez had an off game to finish with 10 points on 4-13 shooting. Nets vs Bulls Matchup   Bulls are in the middle of playoff hunt, being tied... »

After 2 tough losses by single digits, the Brooklyn Nets would like nothing but to redeem themselves with a home-court win against the struggling Orlando Magic. The Magic has lost four of its last games but they need to rediscover their defense and focus for the whole game.
