Game 2 Pacers vs Nets: “Rebounding vs 3PT Shooting”

COUNTDOWN CLOCK

7 Dec 19:30
Denver Nuggets @
Time to kickoff
19 minutes

Brooklyn Nets will face the next challenge against Indiana Pacers, a projected 4th seed in the Eastern Conference if Paul George is healthy. Pacers just beat the Mavs in OT 130-121 behind Myles Turner’s (C) 3opts/16rebs and Paul George’s 20pts/6asts/8rebs.

  • Jeremy Lin has a good match up against Jeff Teague who played quite well vs the Mavs with 20pts/8asts but only shot 5-15 (0-3 from 3s). Teague played for Coach Atkinson in Atlanta Hawks so it will be interesting to see if Jeremy will get insight from Coach Atkinson on how to guard Teague even more effectively. Jeremy should be able to win this matchup with his tight defense and his quickness on the offensive end.
  • Jeremy Lin will face familiar faces with 3 former teammates, Monta Ellis(GS), Aaron Brooks(HOU), Al Jefferson(CHA) vs. Pacers tonight in Brooklyn. Thaddeus Young also played for the Nets last season so he would also be motivated to have a good game.
  • Randy Foye is still out with a hamstring injury so Bojan Bogdanovic should continue to start.

KEY OF THE GAME: Can the Nets have strong interior defense with strong rebounding? Justin Hamilton, Trevor Booker and Brook Lopez would need to step up their rebounding game. Can the Nets come out with 3pt sharp-shooting? 

Let’s hope and pray Jeremy and the Nets can win their debut home game and stay healthy to build the much-needed confidence.

Let’s go, JLin! Let’s go, Nets!

    Let’s go JLin! !!!! Spank the Indiana lemons!!!!!

  • Click Click

    Thanks, and I’ll try. :p

  • Maknusia

    Its not gonna be easy against Pacers…but as Lin said…once the ball goes up…its all 50/50

  • psalm234

    Pacers inside presence with their big men is the biggest threat for sure.
    If the Nets can withstand that and limit 2nd opportunities plus drain the 3s, they’ll s***** that sweet W 🙂

  • psalm234

    I wonder who can stop 6’11” Myles Turner, the Pacers C, who had a huge 30pts/16rebs in the OT win vs the Mavs?
    JHam or Brook?

  • pistolpete

    Hopefully Brook can contain him somewhat. Not impressed with JHam’s defense.

  • Spyckie

    🙁 will miss the game but rooting for the team!

  • YESYESYES

    I think Brook can handle him.

  • YESYESYES

    Me going too. So excited.

  • YESYESYES

    Odds against Nets 114-103. What do yo guys think?

  • KHuang

    Pacers biggest threat is Atkinson BENCHING LIN because Atkinson likely doesn’t think Lin is good enough to play against Teague even though Lin has MURDERED Teague since 2012!!!

  • KHuang

    I don’t think Lin plays much this game.

    I seriously doubt that Atkinson will appreciate his boy Jeff Teague being BULLIED by Jeremy Lin.

    I hope I am wrong.

  • CJSHYY
  • KHuang

    Justin Hamilton indeed is terrible defensively for now, but he’s getting physically stronger every game and will eventually become a terrific defender sooner rather than later.

  • TTNN

    I’d think you are wrong. 🙂

  • YESYESYES

    You think Atkinson want to lose for make Teague happy???

  • YESYESYES

    Change THINK to BELIEVE

  • takeme2cruz

    His career is in danger.

  • Briiick

    If they lose in this game KA will be in a 5-game losing streak including 2 regular games. With this much pain I doubt the HC will be able to feel anything else.

  • KHuang

    Actually, YES.

    Atkinson coaches as if Lin is committing mortal sins for scoring.

    Teague is Atkinson’s guy, far more than Lin. I expect Atkinson to strongly discourage Lin from attacking Teague who I’m absolutely sure Atkinson feels is “better” than Lin.

    Never mind that Lin has CRUSHED the smaller slower weaker less skilled Teague for 5 seasons straight.

  • KHuang

    And I WANT you to be RIGHT!

  • fungch1218

    The KKK sisters are toxic to NBA players.

  • KHuang

    I really don’t think winning or losing motivates Atkinson.

    I think he’s more focused on establishing an egalitarian style of play in a league where egalitarian anything results in TONS OF LOSING.

  • psalm234

    I’m not worried Atkinson benching Lin due to the Fa-TEAGUE fear 🙂

    If anything, Kenny is trying to be to safe giving 8-min rigid rotation even when Lin got hot.
    He needs to bring out his inner MDA to ride Lin like a Secretariat for 3-4 more min or until he misses!

  • psalm234

    I’m not worried Atkinson benching Lin due to the Teague fear.
    More like the Fa-Tigue fear 🙂

    If anything, Kenny’s rookie coach mistake is trying to be to safe giving 8-min rigid rotation even when Lin got hot. He means well to prevent injuries but he needs to learn to ride the hot hands of his precious star.

    He needs to bring out his inner MDA to ride Lin like a Secretariat for 3-4 more min or until he misses.
    We want to see heat-check Lin =)

  • Yura

    Omg. Gross. Are guys actually attracted to fake butts, heavy makeup and Botox? 😑

  • Pistolpete

    Don’t worry you are

  • Pistolpete

    I hope you’re right. Home opener he should ride Lin hard – only chance for a win.

  • Pistolpete

    You are entertaining with your opinions – I’ll give you that.

  • Pistolpete

    Can’t wait!!

  • sws94

    Need big play out of a lot players if the Pacers play up to the level they did in the previous game. And that includes defensively and rebounding. If a W is to be had, at least 3 guys on the team has to really play well and Booker and others have to play strong and get rebounds. Pacers actually have a lot more offense than they used to.

  • psalm234

    A good article by Pablo Torre about Tyler Johnson.
    Great story of being raised by a single mom who instilled toughness in her 5 kids. (she sounds like Mama Lin!)
    Many teams courted him (including the Kings who topped the Nets offer) but Tyler still committed to the Nets until the Heat matched the offer.

    Mad Money: When Tyler Johnson signed a $50 million deal, the world lost its mind. Here’s the crazy thing: He might be worth it.

    WHENEVER HER FIVE children were moved to tears, Master Sgt. Jennifer Johnson repeated a slogan: Get a straw and suck it up. “Meaning: Don’t be a crybaby,” the single mom and 31-year Air Force veteran recalls now. “Figure out what you gotta do.” “She’d say it for everything,” Tyler says. “It’s the most annoying saying ever.”

    The timing of Johnson’s expiring contract was essential to his windfall, admittedly. But in a market, timing is always everything. “Just look at the available shooting guards this summer,” says Austin Brown, one of Johnson’s agents. The top options under age 34 — DeMar DeRozan, Bradley Beal, Jordan Clarkson, Nicolas Batum and Evan Fournier — all immediately re-upped with their original teams on July 1. From there, it was no accident that Brook Lopez, the Nets’ star center, flew out with team officials to woo Johnson. Or that Rockets coach Mike D’Antoni wined and dined him. Heck, Vlade Divac and Peja Stojakovic, two Kings stars-turned-executives, both showed up and topped Brooklyn’s offer. Even then, famously cutthroat Heat president Pat Riley matched every single penny.

    No one was fooled into giving away $50 million. Exactly the opposite: A rational market deemed Johnson worth exactly that.

  • psalm234

    yeah, Lots-A-Lin is the absolute must if Kenny wants to win tonight

  • guest

    I’ll give Atkinson the benefit of the doubt that the team calculated that Celtics was an expected Loss to preserve Lin and Lopez to play all out this game for home opener.
    To minimize Lin, one of the best conditioned NBA players in the off season will be what to expect for the rest of the season.
    Is he coaching to win or preserve for rebuilding.
    The problem of preserving players for the future and not winning, it does nothing to attract future star players for Lin’s superteam – Animemaniacs. Prove us wrong Atkinson!

  • Lin Dunn

    I think LBJ should be a FO manager or a HC after he retires from the NBA.

  • heart

    I wish Pablo would say the same thing about Lin in his past or future article about Lin. That is, ‘Lin is worth every penny and more in Nets signing or Hornets signing’!!!

  • Lin Dunn

    I agree. Even if it is not about winning or losing with KA, I think his game plan definitely does not involve pleasing Teague.

  • Ace Pagoda

    I am willing to give KA 20 games to show his stuff. If after that point BKN is losing by playing poorly as opposed to losing and playing as well as they can with their current personnel then I will openly question KA’s ability and intentions as you seem to be doing thus far.

  • Chipdip

    Go Lin Go! Go Nets Go!

  • Pistolpete

    The Nets backup PG situation is real bad. Vasquez is slow and can’t defend. Whitehead is inexperienced and is really more of a shooting guard. Foye would be decent but KA sees him as the starting SG. Too bad they didn’t keep Gutierrez who was in the top 20 PG’s in DRtg. Maybe they can get him back. Atkinson needs to play Lin at least 36 minutes to minimize the time these backups are on the floor. His plan in the Celtics game was to play him 32 minutes but played him less because it looked like a blowout. 32 minutes is not going to cut it.

  • adele

    Thank you Heart. I will. I hope I can get a Lin signature. If I’m lucky!

  • adele

    Thank you😉

  • takeme2cruz

    Yes an egg might someday become a chicken but you don’t buy an egg for the price of a chicken.

  • adele

    Hi Epie 😊

  • psalm234

    Our only hope is Vasquez can make hit some 3s to open up the game for him; he still doesn’t have his legs yet but he can distribute. But again, offense is not the main issue. Defense is the #1 issue to solve.

    I’m more concerned with the Nets interior defense tonight. Way too many easy points in the last game.
    And the Pacers big men are very formidable with Myles Turner, Thaddeus Young and Paul George combining for 29 out of 52 rebounds (56%). Al Jefferson also anchored their bench.

    If the Nets can compete in rebounding and limit 2nd opportunities, they can run fastbreak, score easy points and hit some open 3s. That’s really the key of the game.

    Pacers is not really a 3pt-shooting team but they did well vs DAL with 10-19 (52%)
    Nets need to play with a fast pace to surprise Pacers right out of the gate.

  • adele

    I hope so. I have been so busy lately but I won’t miss the opening night with Lin starting 🏀

  • adele

    Wish i can meet the other fans and take pictures with them

  • psalm234

    unfortunately no, I’m stuck in sunny AZ =)
    maybe someday but have a ball tonight! Cheer hard for JLin!

  • adele

    You bet!

  • cdblue10

    Go go go Adele!!!!

  • psalm234

    yes, I’m sensing at least 3-4 threes!
    maybe 23pts/6ast game or more =)

  • I am The Jason

    Sometimes I wish the Nets would have made an offer to Norris Cole for the backup PG position, but his agent was asking for too much money.

  • psalm234

    i know what you mean ..
    No guarantee but I get that the market for the SG eggs was super-hot indeed this year!

  • adele

    Go for the WIN BrookLIN!🙏 Actually praying for them to win😊

  • CJSHYY

    Looks great, Adele. Have fun!

  • Grace

    Did you consider using gel to put your hair up in a Mohawk? I guess it might be hard to sit up straight in the car and drive like that though.

  • adele

    Lol! I won’t compete wit Lin on that hairstyle. I’m used to driving with this hairstyle though but thinking about cutting it someday soon.

    Ok I will try to find them. Still traveling because I was working today.

  • Alaingrvis

    yea sound right lol i usually skip that

  • heart
  • aggressiveplayer

    Trust Kenny and trust the process. He’s acknowledging what needs to be fixed.

  • Joe what do you know

    Jealous of all you lucky ducks who get to be @ Nets tonight…. I’ll be peeking my phone @ work for the score and hopefully watch a bit of action on LP during my break….😩

  • CJSHYY
  • Arsenium12 .
  • blueCypher

    Hope the defense and rebounding is better tonight. Even slighlty better we have a chance to win

  • aggressiveplayer

    Yea it’s been a big issue and I would love to see some improvement, especially from Hamilton. If he could rebound and protect the rim better he’d be an incredibly valuable steal.

  • blueCypher

    Ya they cannot win letting other teams score 120+

  • aggressiveplayer

    Yep, in the past games I see a lot of the times where Hamilton only puts his hand up to try to block the shot. That’s not enough. Also need to try to cover weaknesses/speed of Brook, Kilpatrick, Scola, Greivis, etc.

  • psalm234

    On Brook: Aims for good balance getting Brook in the elbow, corner within the motion offense

    On question on Jeremy’s growth as a person & ability to enjoy the moment and wrapped up in it
    KA: Mature as a person, Jeremy never seems overwhelmed by the moment
    Has air of confidence. This is what makes it fun, watching how he relishes it tonight

  • blueCypher

    I dont expect much from hamilton though. I dont think he has the athleticism to be good defensively

  • aggressiveplayer

    Really hoping JLin will be a complete spark plug tonight. I hope he plays with fire and gets the team playing hungry for blood.

  • grover chang

    On minutes: looking to use the full roster. Sigh.

    Will try to just enjoy Lin’s 20-24 minutes a night. Kindve like previous years.

  • aggressiveplayer

    You might be right, but I’m hoping Kenny can somehow get him to improve.

  • Grace

    KA talks the talk. But so far he hasn’t walked the walk.

  • blueCypher

    As long as he is a plus offensively , he can be solid backup. Just hit those 3s or finish the passes

  • grover chang

    Pray Lin plays well. Win. And everyone has a good time. God bless ya all.

  • aggressiveplayer

    Lin played 28 minutes last game. He’s not going to be playing 20-24. I believe Kenny’s plan is to set both Lin & Lopez up for the long run and they’ll amp their minutes up a bit more as we go further along the season. I expect 30-33mpg avg for Lin.

  • aggressiveplayer

    One positive note is that I really enjoyed his putback/second chance plays last night.

  • blueCypher

    Ya, anything offensively related with slightly better rebounding is good enough.

  • aggressiveplayer

    For the money he’s paid? Definitely.

  • blueCypher

    Someone post a stream for the pre-game 🙂

  • cdblue10

    There’s a positive vibes from everyone,I believed in law of attraction.

  • psalm234

    Amen, bro!

  • adele
  • psalm234

    great pose! it looks like you’re sitting on the basketball held by Lin 😄

  • psalm234

    You’re absolutely on the money.

    Defense + rebounding. If they can do it, there’ll be so many fast-break opportunities and easy assist for JLin!

  • CJSHYY

    Wow! Good picture… !!!

  • Vincent

    Sportshunter.eu is always solid

  • blueCypher

    Haha, I’m gonna be sad if we give up 120+ points again.

  • your son’s legendary voltaire

    this gave me weird thoughts :<

  • adele

    Lol!🏀

  • psalm234

    not weird at all

    JLin’s still giving the assist to sit even when it’s only a giant poster 🙂
    Once a PG, always a PG!

    No hesitation
    10-16

  • zxcvb

    Offense looks better today — mostly because Lin is running more PnRs (3 so far).

    Problem so far is offensive rebounds (5 already for IND!!!).

  • psalm234

    @JLin7 kept drawing fouls
    3 so far (Teague, Ellis, PGeorge)

    12-18

  • golfhacker

    Lin sitting now at 6 min mark…Lokks like gonna be 24 mins for Lin.

  • psalm234

    yeah, interior defense is a real problem
    No shot-blockers

    Worse after Brook rested

  • Win

    He is still doing the even mins thing? smh.

  • Alaingrvis

    Lin will play with the bench unit. Good idea

  • zxcvb

    They got the stops, though. Just couldn’t get the board — 7 second-chance pts already.

  • stam

    why is lin sitting that does not make sense

  • Win

    It is the bench unit now.

  • Epie

    equal min for all.

  • Win

    I am already sick of that.

  • Pistolpete

    Maybe because Teague is out

  • stam

    lol

  • Win

    Even Paul George and Ellis are still on the court. What is KA thinking??????

  • CJSHYY

    Maybe save it for 2nd half…

  • Alaingrvis

    so he can come back to start the 2nd

  • zxcvb

    Kenny too rigid with his rotations (“Teague out? Rest Lin.”)

  • heart

    Lin is heating up but has to go to the bench to cool down again???!

  • grover chang

    Sorry. Atkinson said in pregame interview he wants to use the full roster. So limited minutes for starters.

  • Alaingrvis

    They have a better bench then us. Goeorge dont need to start the second

  • Win

    And that the reason why you don’t take all the starter out.

  • stam

    he got his 2 ft, jumper, getting fouls and now he sits…

  • Singapore BB Fan

    Not surprised

  • Alaingrvis

    play them 60 minutes?

  • grover chang

    An I the only one having déjà vu of Laker days.

  • Win

    One of them, either Lin or Brook should be on the floor with the bench.

  • psalm234

    Brook and Lin rested very early at 7min and 5:35 min mark in the 1st quarter
    Let’s see if the bench can compete

    It only makes sense if the Nets keep running and maintains high-pace to tire out the Pacers

  • zxcvb

    Extra bad idea because Lin was drawing fouls, which means they would be in the bonus soon.

  • Singapore BB Fan

    KA a tank commander in disguise

  • Win

    I am sick of this KA coaching, that why we always behind early in the game.

  • Guest

    No turnovers for Lin. Unfortunately he can not shoot from the bench

  • Pistolpete

    nice passing

  • psalm234

    So wide-open 3s but the Nets bench can’t make it yet :[

    12-20

  • Epie

    Harris! 3

  • Dorothy

    How about equal pay too? if AK wants to be equal, why not go all the way?

  • grover chang

    Unintentional tank commander with good intentions. The accidental tank commander.

  • stam

    Open looks.. where is the defense

  • psalm234

    Lin in at 1:37?

  • Win

    Good move!

  • stam

    LOl we are all perplexed

  • Win

    Al is good at low post man…

  • psalm234

    Bench is actually outplaying Pacers

    Great 3 offensive rebounds to make it 17-22

  • sws94

    See what I mean by Al? He has beautiful post moves.

  • sws94

    333

  • psalm234

    I think KA wants to see Lin playing with Harris and Scola

  • Win

    I gotta give it to Cliff. He knows how to use Al!

  • Epie

    333333

  • zxcvb

    LIN 333333

  • sws94

    Odd substitutions but I guess he has a plan. Harris is driving too much, but it seems Lin and him have chemistry. Hamilton and Lin also. I only see chemistry with Booker in the first unit with Lin.

  • psalm234

    oh yes…. Lin 33333!
    20-27

  • grover chang

    Lin Harris Hamilton. Three most effective players.

  • stam

    Damn that was ice cold.

  • zxcvb

    Simple high PnR with Booker = automatic

  • psalm234

    yes, 3 best players in the motion offense so far!

  • Epie

    Lin should’ve picked up at least easy 5 ast by now

  • Win

    Hornets are gonna miss Al too. And Brook should be use like that too.

  • zxcvb

    Trade Brook to Charlotte for Lamb, Hawes and a protected 1st. Or just the pick and Hawes.

  • Alaingrvis

    Lopez is not as great at post ups. From what ive noticed

  • psalm234

    Man, that was a good 3-4 feet behind the line!

    JLin’s deep fadeaway 3!!

    7pts/1ast in 8min at the end of Q1

  • Win

    Yeah. Al is really good at post ups game.

  • GoJLin!

    JLIN 1Q, 8 min, 7Pts (2/4, 1/2, 2/2) and 1Ast.

  • sws94

    Lopez looks WAY better tonight.

  • Win

    Brook!

  • Win

    Nice pass!

  • Epie

    OMG WHAT A PASS

  • psalm234

    @BrooklynNets
    All the way 🆙 @JLin7
    https://twitter.com/BrooklynNets/status/792154249929035776

  • zxcvb

    Finally doin’ work!

  • zxcvb

    LIN STEAL & DISH

  • Win

    This is how we use Brook!!!!!!

  • Alaingrvis

    yup yup

  • zxcvb

    Lin playing PnR and transition. Brook getting the ball deep in the paint.

    This is how it’s supposed to be.

  • psalm234

    Man, behind-the-back assist by Lin!

  • psalm234

    LINNING formula!

  • Win

    Brook!!!!

  • zxcvb

    He’s just blowing up Kenny’s plan.

    We love you Kenny but this team is not the Spurs or even Hawks!

  • freemind
  • psalm234

    yes, let the bench play motion offense

    Let the starters feature Brook-Lin PnR until the Pacers can stop it

  • zxcvb

    Great defense by Lin.

  • Win

    Win or lose, I am loving how we play now and the Mins on Lin and Brook as well!

  • zxcvb

    Brook inside-out to Kilpatrick…3. Simplified offense looks SO MUCH better.

  • aggressiveplayer

    We’re finding a balance. This is nice.

  • zxcvb

    Actually a nice defensive stand by Bogs, too.

  • cdblue10

    I’ve been saying this all along,Lin and Brooks should always be the focus of the offense all the time

  • Alaingrvis

    I still dont get why we didnt do this last game but better late then never

  • gandychan

    why is lin so hesitant with the passing?

  • zxcvb

    Maybe that will be the ultimate strategy that emerges.

  • cshot

    hows our boy doing today? just checked in

  • zxcvb

    Because people keep bashing him on TOs, ha.

  • Alaingrvis

    yup. everyone ese gets the scraps. bog can get his own which is great. kilpatrick as well hopefully

  • psalm234

    Brook has been huge in the 2nd quarter

    Finding SKil for 3 was nice too!

  • Rick Johnson

    Those passes to Lopez in the post looks too much like how Hornet’s played with Jefferson last year. Not much motion offense in that.

  • zxcvb

    Much simpler. Much better.

  • zxcvb

    Another Lin to Lopez dime.

  • FrankW

    3 ast, 7 pts

  • Win

    Yes!!!!

  • stam

    NICE!

  • zxcvb

    First Brook-Lin PnR bucket this season!

  • cshot

    oh yea brook lin pnr

  • Alaingrvis

    bog cant defend

  • psalm234

    Lin’s assist to Brook’s reverse jam!

    Great patience by Lin

  • zxcvb

    I’d bring Lin back in for the final 3m to take advantage of “in the bonus” FTs.

  • zxcvb

    Just too slow with bad instincts. He can defend post-ups but any drive or kick-out wrecks him.

  • adele

    That was sweet 🏀

  • cdblue10

    Waived Vasquez

  • psalm234

    That’s our PG! yeah!!

  • cshot

    why the heck is he sitting again

  • Win

    KP3333

  • Alaingrvis

    rest

  • Win

    No look to no one. Lol.

  • GoJLin!

    Ya, KA play him in another 6 minutes break.

  • Alaingrvis

    Vasques is a big issue. I hope its the injury

  • zxcvb

    Hopefully to let him close the quarter and get easy FTs once they’re in the bonus.

  • psalm234

    Every time Brook and Lin sit, it’s time to pray hard :[

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • tee

    they need to switch bog and harris

  • Win

    Lin and Brook should at least play 14 to 15 mins in the first half.

  • Win

    Vasquez is not fast enough to guard JT

  • Epie

    Lead!

  • tee

    too slow

  • Win

    Hamilton!

  • JW
  • Win

    We can’t rebound….

  • grover chang

    Brook is like a giant. Sin to take him from the rim.

  • Win

    High PnR, I like it!

  • cdblue10

    Lin sees the whole floor!!!!

  • stam

    They are actually calling fouls for Lin instead of giving him a TO

  • zxcvb

    Good foul drawn by Lin…gotta get into the bonus for FT parade.

  • zxcvb

    Benefits of being a starter!

  • Alaingrvis

    Anouncer said its the 2nd team foul so nope

  • Alaingrvis

    bring brook back in

  • grover chang

    Seems like Atkinson heard all the chatter and questions about why Brook wasnt getting the ball.

  • zxcvb

    I meant that every foul takes them closer. Gotta get into the bonus.

  • Epie

    I’m sure most of his family members do read comments

  • zxcvb

    LIN 33333333

  • Alaingrvis
  • Rick Johnson

    3333333

  • Win

    33333!

  • Rick Johnson

    15-5 run !!!

  • JW

    Boston was a faster team that taking Brook out was just a strategy.

  • zxcvb

    Dumb diehard Nets fans complained last game that Lin can’t run PnR. LOL. Such race-blinded fools.

  • psalm234

    Wow… Another deep 3 by Lin!

    His range is DEEEEEP!

  • grover chang

    In that case. Atkinson sems like a good guy. Doing a better job today.

  • Alaingrvis

    thats weird since thats what Lin is known for

  • sport

    Finally watching the game live. Was on my way home and listening to the live broadcast. I like what I’m “hearing” so much more. KA finally featured Lopez on several positions all with baskets that helped with the comeback when Nets were down 10. It was smart to have starters vs Pacers’s 2nd unit for the comeback. Bench also caught fire late and helped. Lin started slow but finally made a 3 pointer and some assists to to take the lead! So glad Lopez can finally play his post game Pacers has no answer for a guy as deadly as him! I liked how Bog started? or played with starters he’s much more useful on offense.

  • blueCypher

    My stream is so choppy 🙁

  • cshot

    sesxy

  • sws94

    Wow.

  • cshot

    same need a better one

  • tee

    omg they cant dribble

  • grover chang

    LOL. PNR is the whole leagues friend

  • LimitedEdition

    Lin god

  • cdblue10

    Wohoooooooooo

  • Win

    Clutch!!!

  • zxcvb

    LINNNNNNN

  • Joe what do you know

    I’m getting HIGH just reading the play-by-play…. LOL!!

  • zxcvb

    He gets cheated by refs??? NO PROBLEM. SWISH!!!

  • sport

    Damn that high arcing turn around! Smexy!

  • Win

    Net!!!!

  • psalm234

    What a turnaround jumper by Lin!!

    With 1.3 seconds left in the shot clock!

  • zxcvb

    Lin is the best rim-protector on the team, lol. He’s stopped 4 buckets at the rim already by himself.

  • aras

    Lin got that look now GET IT SON

  • Win

    JH couldn’t but a shot tonight….

  • zxcvb

    Looked good though. They’ll fall eventually.

  • sport

    Great foul, no easy layup!! Who was that? Hamilton?

  • Alaingrvis

    Still good shot. take it over and over again

  • sws94

    Use the floater Lin.

  • zxcvb

    Great pass by Lin, Harris couldn’t handle the heat.

  • zxcvb

    Okay, that was a great swat by Turner on Lin. Didn’t fool him with the left hand.

  • sport

    Lin avoiding the 3 not good. Always going to the rim will become predictable!

  • aras

    he needs to use a high arching shot there he cant do a regular layup against turner seriously his coach needs to remind him of that or he needs to get it himself.

  • psalm234

    yes, .. I’d like to see Lin’s adjustment in the 2nd half on Turner =)

  • Pistolpete

    YESSS!!

  • zxcvb

    Probably through he could get FTs even if it got blocked. Just tip your cap.

  • zxcvb

    LIN TO BOOKER = SLAM

  • Arsenium12 .
  • Win

    RHJ is not looking good. No!!!!

  • sport

    Wow Pacers, even I saw that Lin to Booker pass before it happened!

  • zxcvb

    NOW THAT IS NETS BASKETBALL.

    Kenny pls learn from this…

  • LimitedEdition

    Lin Halftime: 12 PTS, 5 AST… NICE!

  • psalm234

    Oh wow.. another Lin assist to Booker DUNK!

    12pts/5th assist in the 1st half

    That’s THE PG!

  • stam

    Damn i hope he’s ok

  • aras

    yup but hope that reminds him of the caliber of player turner is.

  • tee

    didnt he draw up the play?

  • Alaingrvis

    This is so true Lin getting calls. Great to be a starter

  • Epie

    dangit, while I got a cup of coffee downstairs, lin got 3 and a 2, need to rewatch the game

  • cdblue10

    That inbound passed plus the emphatic dunk by Booker.We just need to win some until we can be lucky on the trade deadline.Bogs and Vasquez could be a good trade pieces.

  • sws94

    I definitely like Booker. And Lopez/Lin chemistry looks promising. Lin’s playing quite well tonight.

  • sport

    Yup he assumed he’d get fouled but nope that was a clean block. Should’ve done a turn around mid jumper or floater.

  • I am The Jason

    1st half analyst, team should have played like this in game 1. I’m glad KA made the required adjustments

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! 12pts 5AS no TO. Great

  • Win

    Yeah, he defended Paul George pretty good in the 1st half.

  • psalm234

    He will RIDE it for sure =)

  • Alaingrvis

    Bench playing great with the best Plus/minus of the team. Subbing has been phenomenal

  • zxcvb

    I underestimated him. His playoff run was no fluke.

  • psalm234

    yes, very athletic and can finish strongly!

  • sport

    Who was limping RHJ? Oh no I hope he’s ok, he’s very important for this limited offense team!

  • zxcvb

    I’m talking about the PnR, Lopez post feeds and transition freestyling.

    Very little motion offense ran by Lin after the first 5m.

  • Alaingrvis

    yes i saw that. We need him on the other teams best defender.

  • psalm234

    haha… hold the coffee break in the 2nd half =)

    How’s the atmosphere in the building? Electric?

  • sport

    Yea only took Lopez to “complain” before he changed! *rolls eyes” we could’ve be 2-0 for regular season!

  • aras

    nope dude is a beast.

  • adele

    Pretty cool🏀Basketball

  • stam

    and limilted defense

  • CJSHYY

    A lot better than Teague.

  • zxcvb

    Definitely. I think he should guard opposing PGs so Lin doesn’t get BS fouls on guys like Paul and Curry.

  • JW

    6-21 3pts. too many missed open 3s.

  • CJSHYY

    Today they play Lin’s style game… haha! KA finally wake up…. His boss called….lol

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! His teammates are not that good but they will improve…

  • sport

    Dude was too reckless on that solo full court press and slipped. Hope he’s fine :/

  • DX

    Lin played excellent 1st half. Can’t get better. Not only the scores,no TOs, passes, especially he totally control the game and save the energy for closing this game. Hope this is a Win!

  • JW
  • sport

    Wouldn’t call it excellent he had a slow start and is avoiding the 3. He has to mix it up a bit cause going to the rim too often will become predictable.

  • pandaboy99

    wtf 12 pts 5 a lol allstar numbers

  • Win

    Yup. that his role, gotta shoot!

  • sport

    Not really guys like Curry or Thompson can get 12 in a quarter. Lin still has lots of room for improvement. He has to be more confident in his 3s can’t keeping going to the rim just cause he missed 1-2 3s.

  • JW

    probably just 1st home game jitters.

  • Win

    a lot of high PnRs, really really like that.

  • sport

    Yup and Lopez made “all” of his post move points! See our complaining was correct and I’m glad Lopez spoke with the coach for adjustment! If Lopez wasn’t featured more we wouldn’t have made that come back!! Love the PnR between Lin and teammates! About time!!

  • GoJLin!

    And 0 TO!

  • Win

    Yup. Lopez can be used just like Al.

  • Win

    Is RHJ ok?

  • Win

    Brook!

  • Win

    Lopes should get that call!

  • Win

    Paul George is getting hot….

  • zxcvb

    It’s a game of runs…no worries. Lin will probably have to take over again.

  • gandychan

    no energy in the 3rd quarter

  • Alaingrvis

    Bogdonavich cant be on PG

  • zxcvb

    Too many post-feeds will do that.

  • kauaiblue

    Hows he doing?

  • sport

    Don’t like this lineup, where is Lopez? Pacers had no answer for his post moves should play him more!

  • GoJLin!

    12 Pts (4/8, 2/4, 2/2), 6 A, 1 R

  • Alaingrvis

    No calls right now

  • sport

    Refs swallowing the whistle not making another calls, Nets have to make the basket and not look for fouls!

  • zxcvb

    Brook 5 TOs already…for a center. Too many wasted possessions.

  • kauaiblue

    Awesome… thanks!!

  • Win

    nice block!

  • zxcvb

    Brook needs to sit and let Lin run PnR.

  • CaliUSMC

    How has brook been scoring?

  • psalm234

    That’s one HUGE chasedown block by Lin on Teague!

  • Alaingrvis

    ellis

  • Alaingrvis

    Will that be FTs?

  • Vincent

    lin sitting

  • CaliUSMC

    Teague only has 4points.. is due to Lin’s D?

  • Vincent

    i think coach sat lin a little early…

  • psalm234

    oh right

  • zxcvb

    Brook wasted his minutes this quarter.

  • blueCypher

    Is Lin shooting 2 FT ?

  • Vincent

    im guessing lin is going to play major minutes in the fourth? my only concern is will it be too late by then?

  • zxcvb

    Too much Lopez this quarter — turned into a TO fest with no Lin attacks.

  • CJSHYY

    KA needs to do something late 3Q always bad….

  • sport

    Wow Pacers with all these injuries something is not right with their trainers.

  • Pistolpete

    Yesss Harris was due!!

  • Vincent

    lin should rest for a minute or two then come back in

  • sport

    Harris with the 3! Back at you George!

  • Win

    Sit Vasquez pls….

  • I am The Jason

    Really wish we had Tyler Johnson over Vasquez right now

  • sport

    Vasquez is really garbage can’t even make a layup! Why is he getting minutes?

  • blueCypher

    I say plug in Whitehead, why not. Vasquez is not giving you much anyways

  • Vincent

    they cannot let the lead ballon to 15+ or else lin will not return!

  • CJSHYY

    Bc we paid him 5 M?

  • Alaingrvis

    good job vasques. lol first time

  • pandaboy99

    AKs got lin rotation like no other coach weve seen play under.. lin probably comes back at the 3 min mark

  • sport

    Vasquez got lucky with the 3 point foul, please make the FTs at least! -_-

  • zxcvb

    Brook’s TOs killed them this quarter. Lin needs to take over the 4th and shoot 8-10 times.

  • Howan Cheung

    I have confidence, just placed a bet at 4.5 odds

  • sport

    He just got lucky, horrible liability on defense and offense, can’t score to save his life!

  • occupatio

    geez put lin back in the game

  • Alaingrvis

    we have no energy

  • cdblue10

    We will have a long crappy season guys.

  • sport

    Ok enough of the bench, put Lin and starters back in before it’s too late!

  • Win

    As I said, either Lin or Brook have to be on the floor with the bench.

  • ty

    can we try to win a game? get Lin in already

  • BobbyH

    If they can hold the usual 3Q deficit to 10, they might have a chance.

  • tee

    omg coach is giving the bench too many mins

  • sport

    Totally agree with you! Since Brook’s post moves limits Lin’s s PnR. Brooke and Lin should have staggered minutes with 2nd unit!!

  • heart

    Call a Time OUT! Don’t let the momentum shift any longer….It always happens in 3Q!!!!

  • zxcvb

    No, this is much better than last game. Kenny is learning one game at a time.

    And Lin is playing great regardless.

  • cshot

    his rotations confuse me…

  • Vincent

    why is coach doing this its crazy…

  • Win

    Lin is ready to back in!

  • psalm234

    Lin in at 2:09 left in Q3

  • blueCypher

    The lead is dwindling

  • heart

    It confuses players too. They can’t get ready mentality!

  • sport

    Vasquez steps on baseline, ok I’ve seen enough guy is hopeless!!!

  • Win

    Well, it still a lot better than previous game.

  • Alaingrvis

    is it me or are we getting no calls

  • Win

    KA was complaining to the ref too.

  • cshot

    that wasnt a foul lol?

  • zxcvb

    Nah. Just bad decisions by Brook — terrible TOs. Killed all momentum.

  • blueCypher

    Vasquez can only play spot minutes , he is not ready

  • Win

    Lin should go call on the drive that he has to gave up the ball. He got hits a few times.

  • zxcvb

    That’s why I wanted Aaron Brooks! At least he can run and score.

  • tee

    kilpatrick…cannot finish his shots

  • zxcvb

    Yeah, he could get some, but he’s been allowed to play defense on Teague and Ellis, so I’m happy. I blame Kenny for not letting him attack more and get FTs.

  • sport

    Lopez so active on defensive end! Again Pacers had no answers and he’s made almost every shot on his post moves! There’s no reason why KA shouldn’t have played him more with the bench who was awful!!

  • tee

    stressfull watching these guys lol

  • zxcvb

    Back to back FT trips for Lin (3/4)…that’s what I’m talking about! Kenny needs to be smart and let Lin close quarters so he can get FTs.

  • CaliUSMC

    15/7 so far.. awesome stat line!

  • zxcvb

    Alright. It’s time for MR. 4TH QUARTER. Just keep attacking, make or miss or TO.

  • psalm234

    Good point!
    Pacers will be in foul trouble by end of 4th

  • Vincent

    lets go lin!!

  • riddick

    We’ll b out of games waitg for ka to learn.

  • Alaingrvis

    26 minutes already

  • cshot

    jeremy needs to use floaters lol. teague gets so many easy points with em

  • grover chang

    Sounds like if we just replace Vasquez things will get better.

  • Vincent

    lin was killing it with his floaters during linsanity

  • Alaingrvis

    every now and then

  • zxcvb

    Kenny seemed to forget entirely last game — Lin drew a ton of fouls in the 1Q but he didn’t let him close.
    These are rookie coaching mistakes…his assistants need to speak up as well.

  • grover chang

    True. Why he doesn’t use it.

  • aras

    well he is 2-9 so not that easu :/ :/ :/ :/

  • occupatio

    they were more like runners, as they were off one foot instead of two.

  • Rick Johnson

    Nets came out of half with just no energy. What the heck?

  • zxcvb

    Rusty. But I’m fine with him swishing 3s instead.

  • sport

    We know that, point is does KA? If he was smarter, Vasquez would not be on this team right now!!! He’s the main reason why the bench is so bad!

  • Alaingrvis

    His offense is good enough but yea more tools couldnt hurt. Pacers dont have a shot blocker so its unnecessary

  • cdblue10

    nice pass

  • Vintage

    Probably because he feels like it’s better to potentially draw a foul, and he might feel he’s more accurate closer to the hoop.

  • blueCypher

    I agree. Hope when Foye gets back, he takes Vasquez’ minutes

  • psalm234

    What a timely long pass by Quarterback LIN to Lopez!
    2 FTs

  • zxcvb

    Too many Lopez post-feeds…which he turned over like crazy (4 TOs in 6 possessions).

    When Lin makes TOs, at least the ball is moving.

  • sport

    He needs to keep Lin or Lopez on the floor at all times with the bench!! Lopez needs way more minutes. Pacers can’t defend against of his post moves!

  • aras

    Dumb TO lin

  • sport

    Lin and Lopez needs to featured as much as possible! They are a deadly combo! Not many players stand a chance against Lopez!!!

  • Win

    Nice drive!

  • zxcvb

    LIN DRIVE AND FINISH

  • psalm234

    Great D by Lin on Teague!
    “Moving his feet”

  • Guest

    Ronnie price is available. Just kidding

  • kauaiblue

    Whats the score?

  • Epie

    Ah come on, Lin was wide open 🙁

  • zxcvb

    Win or lose, Nets played the right way for MOST of the game. First 5m of the 1Q and 3Q will be to blame.

  • Win

    81-76

  • psalm234

    Lin drew foul on Teague
    76-81

  • cdblue10

    pacers will be on penalty from now on.A good spin dunk from Booker

  • kauaiblue

    Oh my gosh!

  • Win

    Four team fouls!!!!

  • aras

    I mean Lin has totally shut down teague

  • zxcvb

    LIN TO BOOKER!

  • CaliUSMC

    DOUBO DOUBO COMIN!

  • psalm234

    Perfect timing!
    Still 9 min left..

  • Win

    Boooker!!!!!!

  • psalm234

    What a SPIN-move and DUNK by Booker!!!!
    78-81

  • zxcvb

    For a PG, Lin’s defense is ELITE.

  • adele

    I’m not losing hope. The ball is round🏀

  • Win

    Hmm. That was kind of a hero shot by Lin, a little too quick and he should drive to the basket instead.

  • occupatio

    i think he was expecting the foul

  • zxcvb

    SWAG, baby. I love the confidence.

  • Vincent

    its ok lol… i hope lin stays in the game the rest of the quarter

  • sws94

    And Dominique Wilkins says “Lin can’t guard Teague.”

  • Alaingrvis

    Jeff teague is 2-10. Lins defense is elite

  • aras

    The building would have exploded – love the confidence more of that please

  • Vincent

    theres no way atkinson pulls lin now right ?

  • aggressiveplayer

    He rebounded the last 4 rebounds or something and played very good defense forcing a tough shot.

  • Win

    Yeah. He has been playing at all start level. At both ends!!!

  • psalm234

    Good heat check..
    It will bring the building down if he makes it & carries momentum

    Announcer agrees

  • Alaingrvis

    Lin has 30 minutes already

  • Rick Johnson

    Lin needs to drive to the paint, draw more fouls. One more they will be in the bonus.

  • Win

    Yeah. I would love to see that tho. 🙂

  • aras

    lol who cares about nique? great player horrible commentator.

  • GoJLin!

    3Q, 8:29, JLIN 17pts, 8 Ast, 6 R, 1 Block! Go JLIN Go!

  • sport

    Damn booker with the turning Dunk!!

  • Win

    Luv that!

  • zxcvb

    This better be a 1-2m breather. TOPS.

  • cshot

    love bookers dunks man. so emphatic

  • psalm234

    With 8:29 left, Lin needs a breather
    He should be in with 5-6 min left

  • Alaingrvis

    Booker is becoming my next favorite nets player

  • Vincent

    wow i jinxed lin lol

  • cdblue10

    i love that

  • Win

    WTH?????

  • psalm234

    Man, I don’t mind OT if Lin gets TRIPLE-DOUBLE!

  • zxcvb

    To be fair, there is another game TOMORROW. Almost forgot about that.

  • Vincent

    even double double would be nice 🙂

  • Vincent

    no wayy really?

  • sport

    He is a very strong guy and works hard on defense!

  • Win

    If only for 2 to 3 mins max.

  • aras

    He took Lin out because Lin did not take the shot within the offense. gotta agree with kenny there to be honest. I like what Lin did there but it was a bad shot. Kenny is telling him that by benching him.

  • Alaingrvis

    yup

  • Win

    KP!

  • cdblue10

    faaaaccckkkk

  • sport

    No crap but starters have to stay in for rest of the game, they have to fight tooth and nail to win this!

  • cdblue10

    This will give us a 3 pt lead if Hamilton will convert the FT

  • Vincent

    dang i hope lin comes back in.. cuz kenny might say oh the bench is the reason we have the lead

  • Win

    Wow! KA is letting KP handle the ball instead of Vasquez

  • sport

  • aras

    it was a bad shot Lin went hero mode i like the confidence but in this team every possesion counts. i feel Kenny benched him to tell him that. i Like kenny so far.

  • grover chang

    Love how they have vasquez give Kilpatrick the ball to be the ballhandler.

  • DrewBear2

    I won’t go that far, but they do give 100%. Full effort; that’s what Kenny promised.

  • Win

    I like Hamilton a lot, If he can improve his defensive game, he will be big!

  • cdblue10

    Guys your feed is prolly 2-3 mins late

  • cshot

    just use vasquez as a shooter. let sean do that dribbling

  • Pistolpete

  • cdblue10

  • cdblue10

  • zxcvb

    Hope Lin gets some cheap FTs to ice the game and get 20.

    Lopez is a beast. That man is like the hulk. Lin is important but Lopez drives this train.

  • stam

    Lin distributing to Skilpatrick, Bog and Lopez

    1 assist 1 rebound

  • FrankW

    Lin triple triple?””

  • zxcvb

    Lin doing the job Kenny wanted–but through PnR and post-feeds, not motion offense.

  • sport

    I’m so glad KA learned his lesson, Lopez is the franchise and you need to go to him as much as you can! Many teams can triple team Lopez and he’d still shoot right over them!!

  • cdblue10

    offensive foul from Ellis nets ball.KP is doing everything

  • grover chang

    Lopez is the engine of the team.

  • cdblue10

    Lin fouled by Ellis.ft’s

  • sport

    I hope this game will tell KA to dump that Motion Offense crap int he garbage! I don’t want to see that ever again!

  • Pistolpete

    Yes 2 FTs

  • zxcvb

    Like I said, game of runs…Nets got the last run.

    Kilpatrick should start at SG with Bojan as the 6th man — he prefers to chuck Crawford style anyway.

  • cdblue10

    THis 1 is in the bag just pray for Lin to get the 3ple double

  • psalm234

  • HVJoy

    Congratulations! Coach Atkinson’s and new Nets’ FIRST home victory it is!

    Kilpatrick and Lopez are interviewed court-side.

  • blueCypher

    Good job , this is how it should be. The 2 best players- Lin and Lopez – needs to get the touches most

  • grover chang

    Didn’t know Kilpatrick was from Brooklyn. That’s awesome. I like that guy. Bless you KP.

  • sws94

    Excellent. This is a good night.

  • Vincent

    man atkinson is finally using screen and roll

  • sport

    KA went straight to locker room, probably mad this means his motion offense is toast and Lopez and Lin were right. I’d be happy if we don’t see any of that motion offense crap ever again.

  • Win

    Great adjustment KA!!!!!

  • grover chang

    Relief. Did not have to wait for a long losing streak before their first win.

  • sws94

    Er, I think Coach knows what he’s doing. He had weird substitutions but they worked.

  • Briiick

    With Lin we win !

  • HVJoy

    Well, maybe he was hiding teas of joy.

    This is his very FIRST home win as a brand new NBA head coach!

  • Vincent

    lol how is lin not player of the game?

  • sport

    Lopez deserved the court side interview he was player of the game. We won’t win without him!

  • Alaingrvis

    Kilpatrick deserve it. Lin will have plenty

  • blueCypher

    Need stream of post game , is there post game ?

  • occupatio

    thats fine. they gave it to SK right?

  • Briiick

    Take it easy, it’s Lin’s team.

  • cdblue10

    That’s a given…so let the role guy to boost their confidence further

  • Vincent

    they gave it to lopez and sk

  • spiderman

    9 rebounds for Lin!

  • aras

    SK3l Deserves it

  • occupatio

    its all good. not a real stat. haha

  • Alaingrvis

    kilpatrick +26

  • grover chang

    I could live with it. Lin excel and there is enough help to have two players of the game next to him for the win. Will be a fun season if that continues.

  • grover chang

    Lin only A. Why not A+. LOL

  • LAJane

    Very close to a triple double!!

  • heart

    Glad Lin rebounds lots today. He has to rebound to control the tempo or else whoever gets the rock just chuck it up!

  • I am The Jason

    He just got his first win in front of his family. The man is happy

  • cdblue10

    ADELE wherever you are?you are the LUCKY CHARM:-)

  • GoJLin!

    JLIN 34 min, 21 Pts (6/12, 2/4, 7/8) + 9R, 9A (2 TO), 1B, 1PF + 1; Good all round game!

  • sport

    I’ll stop calling Vasquez garbage if he can knock down 3s like that for every game from now and play like he did this 4th quarter! He came through when Lin needed to rest at crucial time!

  • Alaingrvis

    Lins defense is all nba level no joke

  • Alaingrvis
  • blueCypher

    Foye please take most of Vasquez minutes, when he comes please

  • Alaingrvis

    Jeff teague 2-13

  • blueCypher

    Is there a stream for post game show ?

  • occupatio

    wow

  • grover chang

    If you take Lopez three point attempts away he is 10-14. Monster.

  • aras

    screw the stat line. Lin took teagues Wife, kids and lunch money. This ones for you nique!

  • BobbyH

    LOL

  • occupatio

    aside from that nice baseline floater, he did nothing tonight.

  • Vincent

    commentators said they loved lin’s leadership out there

  • Prof

    JLin carried the ball off court. Guess he is presenting it to the coach for his first win.

  • Vincent

    man to beat a tough team like indiana is a great way to start the season

  • Epie

    omg lol

  • sport

    Wanted Lin to get the Triple double but he will have many other chances this season. Finally this with PnR and post plays this team is finally ont he right track!! We were all complaining correctly about KA’s offense.

  • CaliUSMC

    hahahahahahahah lmao

  • grover chang

    Honestly did not follow the Nets. Did not know Lopez was so unstoppable in the paint. Becoming such a fan of his.

  • LW

    And Lin made sure to save the game ball for KA after end of game.

  • aras

    lopez is fantastic in the post one of the last true big men.

  • Alaingrvis

    He can average 25 with Lin here

  • Vintage

    lol they aint seen nothing yet

  • joyce ward

    LOL

  • GoJLin!

    JLIN proved he can lead the NETs to WIN !!! Lucky Fans who watch this opening night game!!!! it Worth the trip from overseas 🙂 🙂

  • sport

    Did you watch the last season 35 pt highlights of Lopez in last thread? Always knew Lopez was unstoppable it was KA’s offense and limited minutes that was the problem!! Now we can finally say goodbye to the motion offense more like “zero offense”.

  • Briiick

    I know KA is a smart guy, otherwise Lin wouldn’t have had an all-in.

  • LAJane

    Haha…I was just now reigning myself in on the triple double GREED 😀

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! He’s their saver for sure.

  • Alaingrvis
  • CJSHYY
  • Alaingrvis

    That comeback was not a fluke this game as well. We have a great coach in the making

  • JW
  • CJSHYY
  • Briiick

    Once Nets have had a taste of win, they will get more thirsty.

  • sport

    Where are the guys who said Lopez “doesn’t fit offense” and “needs to be traded” instead of blaming KA’s dumb offense? Lopez is the franchise and you build around your franchise, not bench him and make him fit your offense!

  • HVJoy

    Good observation! I hope you are right.

    Really happy the team got the first Win for the new coach at home court.

  • CaliUSMC

    This the guy that just wrote the BR article, correct?

  • norah mackenzie

    maybe he’s been reading this site – and was motivated to play better

  • cdblue10

    He’s gone,he won’t take the hit…lol

  • CJSHYY

    Today’s Lin’s game not KA Motion.

  • rookie75094

    Yes!!! The lemons has been retired to the junk yard

  • GoJLin!

    Yes! like JLIN said WIN solved a lot of things! so happy for JLIN, his teammates, KA & NETs! So happy for us, JLIN Fans! What a game, what a starter day!

  • CJSHYY

    Ya! Love HB

  • cdblue10

    NO MORE MOtion OFFENSE guys!!!

    I think we sd wait till the next game first

  • heart

    Congrats Coach KA on your first win in the NBA regular season game! Thank you for listening and adjusting to incorporate Lopez pnr w/ Lin tonight. Please continue to mixing it up to confuse your opponents and play to win. And thank you for letting Lin lead his teammates to a win today! –heart!

    The Nets’ owner Mikhail Prokhorov was there at the game, right?

  • HVJoy

    That is really touching.

  • aggressiveplayer
  • Briiick

    Well said, hahaha!

  • Maknusia

    wish it was a triple double but I will take the win

  • Bauer

    That’s the way ..
    I like it

  • norah mackenzie

    so am I – I am still soaring looking forward to seeing the highlights

  • JoeTeam

    He’s headed for a lot of those, to his potential, not that the cork is off !

  • sport

    Lopez too! Opponents are in trouble when double teamed by Brook-Lin

  • LW

    KA’s very first win as first time NBA head coach! Lin always does the right thing!

  • sws94

    yep. Horrible.

  • sport

    Hopefully Vasquez is turning a new leaf and finally proving to us why KA believes so much in him!

  • sport

    Lin x Lopez’s game to be exact!

  • sport

    Come on I have bets on the division champ, don’t get my greedy hopes up! I just want them to win 20+ games and make the playoffs! Not too much to ask for! *If they win Division Champ I don’t mind of course XD heh heh. $_$

  • adele

    Yes I am. My throat hurts because I shouted all the time😜

  • Win

    I did too. And the win over 20.5 game. 🙂

  • Joe what do you know

    Lopez is bloody solid in contact finishing… he’ll be Lin’s best big man partner since Tyson…

  • stam

    I felt like today Lin got to be more of a point guard… still not Dantoni’s system but better… More lin, less motion offense. Lin needs the ball more to be more of a point guard.

  • stam

    The team is hungry and this win reinforce more effort and team ball.

  • sport

    Lopez is 10x better than Al. I cringed every time Al went to the basket. So glad he wa playing for the Pacers this game.

  • sport

    lol they definitely need to win more than 20 games, that bet was a safety net so I don’t lose any money!

  • Michael

    Unless he sneezed on it.

  • adele

    Indeed. God is good🙏
