G3 BKN Nets vs ATL Hawks: “Will Deep Bench Propel Nets for 2nd Win?”

G3 BKN Nets vs ATL Hawks: “Will Deep Bench Propel Nets for 2nd Win?”

The deep Nets bench has propelled Nets to outscore the Magic 64-32 in their first win. Will the same unit be able to turn near losses to close wins throughout the season? We are about to see the 2nd test on the road against the Hawks. The loss of Lin for the season hurt the first unit as D’Angelo Russell struggled with 8 turnovers despite his contribution with clutch shooting in the 4th quarter. Jeremy Lin’s role as the floor general helped to free Russell to thrive as a shooting guard. It’s the strong reason why Nets tried to sign veteran guard Jameer Nelson before he was signed by the Pelicans Until the Nets find veteran PG, the Nets hopes DLo would grow quickly as PG or ... »

G2 Orlando Magic vs Brooklyn Nets

  With Jeremy Lin successfully underwent surgery to fix the ruptured patella tendon, the Nets will host the first home game against the Orlando Magic. Crabbe will be the new starter to replace Jeremy. Unless the Nets fixes the defensive lapses that allowed 140 points in the first game against the Pacers, the Magic will be a tough matchup and a win would be tough to come by. The Magic won the first game 116-109 against the Heat ESPN Game Preview The Nets confirmed what many suspected Thursday morning, making Lin the second player to go down for the season with a serious injury after Gordon Hayward was injured in Boston’s season-opening loss at Cleveland Tuesday.

G1 Brooklyn Nets vs Indiana Pacers: “We Go Hard”

G1 Brooklyn Nets vs Indiana Pacers: “We Go Hard”

Culture. Family. Playing Together. Unselfishness. #WeGoHard. The Nets picture taken at the Practice at the Park seems to perfectly capture what the Nets organization has been trying to build since last season. D’Angelo Russell playfully pretended to block Jeremy Lin’s shot next to Quincy Acy and Caris Levert with the Nets motto of “We Go Hard” splashed on the background on the basketball. They seemed to enjoy playing together unselfishly in their first three preseason games with average winning margin of 20 points before getting routed in the last preseason game against the 76ers by almost the same margin. It is a sobering reminder that the team has potential to make ... »
