Time to kickoff
1 days, 22 hours, 20 minutes

After the exhilarating and historic win against the Pacers in their home debut, the Brooklyn Nets flew overnight to Milwaukee and arrived late around 3 am. Will they have enough in the tank to beat the Bucks on the road in a back-to-back game?

Since only Jeremy Lin played above 30 minutes last night, the 10 Nets players should have enough energy to compete hard with the Bucks who had a 3-day rest after losing their first game against the Hornets 96-107 .

The pick and roll (PnR) offense between Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez finally found its groove and proved to be unstoppable against the Pacers while Jeremy Lin lead the charge as the floor general.

KEY OF THE GAME:  A Lin PnR (with Booker or Hamilton since Brook is resting), less motion offense for the 1st and more for the 2nd unit  would help. A strong rebounding game (52-49 advantage over the Pacers) would continue to be the key for the Nets to notch their first road win of the season. Better 3pt shooting (only 30% vs the Pacers) could also help to secure a win.

Snatching a road win in a back-to-back game won’t be an easy task without the energy of the home crowd and the familiarity of the arena. But if the team plays together under the direction of an experienced point guard like Lin, tonight might be the night the Nets get that road win.

Let’s hope and pray the Nets will continue their formula of success, play together as a team, and finish the game healthy!

Let’s go, JLin and the Nets! You Can Do It!

    hehehe

  • Brent Yen

    No Lopez today tho

  • Vincent Lee

    As we know, Lopez won’t be playing today.
    https://twitter.com/NYPost_Lewis/status/792411673038499840

    Hamilton will certainly get the start- good for floor spacing and he had a big block against the Pacers.

    Interested to see how Lin matches up against Giannis Antetokounmpo (6’11”, 223lbs), the Greek freak is long and athletic and is a much different matchup than Teague (who Lin held to 2/13 FG last night).

    538 had the Nets at 43% chance winning yesterday (which they did), and 22% (losing by 8) today. We’ll see!

  • psalm234

    oh wow,… rest?

  • psalm234

    yes, we’ll get to see how JLin will solve the Giannis puzzle.
    Great matchup!

  • Brent Yen

    Yes sir!

  • Alaingrvis

    What an odd lineup milwaukee has. GA won’t be able to stay with Lin. Rhj will guard him

  • psalm234

    This is a statement game for sure.
    “We rest Brook for our possible playoff run”

    And if we can beat the Bucks on the road without Brook, beware of the Nets =)

  • Brent Yen

    haha, well…..maybe Lin will have a 50 pt game today!

  • Vintage

    I agree, this tells me they expect to make the playoffs 😉

  • CJSHYY

    Not just about high… Lin will find a way to beat him.

  • fungch1218

    This is a winnable game and they rest Lopez?
    There must be something the Nets is hiding like they didn’t play PNR in preseason.

  • Peter Truong

    Just wondering. Would we be okay if KA rest JLin in the next game?

  • blueCypher

    I do not see it. I just hope he does not llay 40mins tonight

  • CJSHYY

    It’s B2B game, KA will not be that crazy. I think Whitehead probably will get some min.

  • sws94

    GA is very skilled. I watched him play in preseason and against Charlotte. He’s tough. I don’t like the Bucks because they are oversized in the smaller positions. Hopefully, Lin can exploit their mismatches in height. But he has to watch out for them cutting off passing lanes with their lengths. And he doesn’t have Lopez to lob the ball to.

  • sws94

    I agree with Alain. Lin won’t guard GA and RHJ, or perhaps Booker, will. Lin will likely be guarding the 2-guard. When Delly is in, Lin will guard Delly. I think. We’ll see.

  • blueCypher

    Will we see a lin 30ptt night ?

  • blueCypher

    Points

  • CJSHYY

    I hope so. haha!

  • psalm234

    that makes sense

  • psalm234

    if he did, it won’t be 17/44 shooting ..maybe more like 14/20 and 25FTs LOL

  • psalm234

    I don’t think Coach KA is okay with losses =)

    The Nets need Lin’s leadership in every game.
    We might see more that KA wants to limit his min to 30-34min/game but plays every game

    I guess the answer is NO lol

  • blueCypher

    I keep forgetting about the Hawks. They are a playoff team no doubt 🙂

  • kauaiblue

    Lopez out? What? Why?

  • CaliUSMC

    He’s getting the Duncan treatment

  • kauaiblue

    So early in the season? Hes only 28!

  • CaliUSMC

    I think KA said he believes Lopez has a lot of miles already and plans on resting him a lot throughout the season.

  • orLinaryjoe

    28 and getting the old man treatment.

  • Charlie Sun

    JLin’s PER is at 24.73. A couple of players from last year with a similar PER? Chris Paul, Kawhi Leonard, James Harden. That’s right, JLin is an ALL STAR.

  • kauaiblue

    That is bizarre! What a wierd journey we continue to go on… lol… maybe hes injured… he risks losing momentum built from last night…

  • guest

    Lopez is injury prone, like most Big’s when they play too many minutes or are the focal point of the offense. It looks like maybe Marks is bringing in his Spurs player management for peak performance throughout the year.
    What I noticed from last game and preseason, Atkinson will speak up when Lin is getting unfairly fouled unlike previous coaches just looking and not doing anything; even Coach Clifford.
    Lin is going to have a special year!

  • kauaiblue

    Clifford was horrible!

  • kauaiblue

    Sorry, hes 33… i trust KA47…

  • Geoffrey

    watch out Jeremy! Delly’s coming after you:

    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs0RYxb2uDo

  • blueCypher

    Delly is a pesky defender

  • spiderman

    We need this Lopez for the season
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ZSHo8yU9FKM

  • webattorney

    Why isn’t Lopez playing? Some tactical reason? Good thing: Nets never give up and fight hard in 4th quarter even when they are down. Bad thing: Nets have been down close to 10 points by end of 3rd quarter. Without Kilpatrick’s knocking down some shots, Nets might not have gotten close to Pacers for Lin and starters to win that game. Was an exciting game though. And a great game by Lin. He looked very confident and smooth. No hesitation except hesitation moves.

  • Vintage

    I think they’re building him up for the long haul. 1) He’s a big guy with a history of foot injuries 2) It’s very early in the season, and it takes time for body to acclimate (for bigger guys, probably longer) 3) They’re playing a lot of games within a short time span 4) Can’t afford to lose him if they want to make a playoff run

  • blueCypher

    Expect lin to have more fga tonight.

  • orLinaryjoe

    Googled him at 28, 1988?

  • zxcvb

    I think resting Brook is a good excuse to see if Ham-Lin can work. Though he played really well last night, Lopez is still not an ideal fit on this team and he can fetch a late lottery pick from another team.

    There have been signs that they are shopping Brook like they shopped Thad Young, and this is a perfect opportunity to test Hamilton as a starter.

  • 1mtoldman

    cbs sports, realgm, there are many; my favorite one from last year isnt up and running this year. an interesting player ratings (primarily fantasy focused) site is number is numberfire; with its “nerd” index, has lin (if you filter for players with limited minutes) to date # 19 over all 4th among point guards. hamilton also cracks the top 40.

  • sws94

    He’s 27 or 28, not 33.

  • 1mtoldman

    the online tweets from media are that this will be a season long thing; no back to backs for lopez. would mean (or so its reported i haven’t counted it myself) 14 games missed.

    actually rereading the tweets from netsdaily and tom lorenzo respectively it says he “may not” play in back to backs the rest of the season; not that its a given but a possibility.

  • 1mtoldman

    back to backs. multiple on line posts suggest he may be rested most or all back to backs for the season.

    Reminder: Lopez is dealing with an ongoing plantar faciitis. Ive been suspecting thats the case ever since I heard the words ‘bringing him along’ because its also how they talk about levert

  • emz

    https://www.google.com/amp/uproxx.com/dimemag/dime-qa-expert-surgeon-on-tyreke-evans-plantar-fasciitis/amp/?client=safari

    “But the reality is if you are prone to plantar fasciitis, the likelihood is that you are going to get it on a recurrent basis. All you can really do is be preventive. “

  • aggressiveplayer

    Source?

  • aggressiveplayer

    This is exactly my sentiments.

  • aggressiveplayer

    But aren’t these preseason stats?

  • Arsenium12 .

    If anyone’s interested in some data, here are the 10 players from the 2008 draft (Brook Lopez’ draft year) who have played the most regular season minutes. The data doesn’t include playoff games, so that has to be kept in mind. The data is from basketball-reference[dot]com.

    It’s notable that Brook Lopez has played many fewer regular season games than some of the players. However, his “minutes per game” ratio is one of the highest.

    nets fan posts elsewhere very confused and conflicted on the brook resting back to backs thing.

    would be hard to summarize all the varying views but mostly just: it doesn’t make sense. unless…. (fill the blank with various theories).

  • aggressiveplayer

    It makes a LOT of sense now why Brook may be resting after doing some research.

    “All you can really do is be preventive. A few preventative things that work aggressively with a trainer or physical therapist to stretch out your plantar fascia and strengthen your flexor tendons in your foot to kinda unload your plantar fascia, number one.”

    http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/tc/plantar-fasciitis-topic-overview#2
    “Give your feet a rest. Cut back on activities that make your foot hurt. Try not to walk or run on hard surfaces.”

    Also, the cause of plantar fasciitis is 1) flat foot and 2) overweight. Makes a ton of sense for Lopez to have lost weight over the summer to both get quicker and more mobile but also to help the plantar fasciitis.

    I just don’t like the cynical and negative attitude some fans have towards the Net’s and Atkinson’s decisions. They have a performance and analytics team and they’re invested into sports science & medicine for crying out loud. Fans shouldn’t act like they know what’s better for the team unless they know everything that’s going on.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    What the heck! The Nets won its first game.
    How many sports writers could have guessed that the Nets could get its first win so quickly? Close to none.

  • redking79

    Nice! You have a good eye for an action shot.

  • Yura

    Well said. 🙂

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    a dirty defender who could hit your nuts when you go up against him but this time Lin is a starter and the call will be made.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    He has had high usage by other coaches but Kenny plans to use him for all the home games. Back to back road games! Nay.

  • Arsenium12 .

    The Nets have prioritized the sports science aspect of basketball operations under Marks, organizing things under performance, analytics, medicine, etc. … . The Nets have also strengthened their relationship with the Hospital for Special Surgery. It’s ALL about getting the most out of players.

  • redking79

    Nice clean block, Lin has done same to other people.

    If Lin head faked, he easily could’ve drawn the foul and an and-1 opportunity.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Who is backing up Hamilton?
    I bet ANTHONY BENNETT will see more minutes tonight.

  • Yura

    Serious? No one…? :/

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    They are playing at the next level with Dwight, the rim protector that they have coveted for a long long time. You know, almost all players depreciated after playing with James Harden.

  • redking79

    Nets won’t win tonight. They might get blown out if the Bucks double Lin and make the rest of the team beat them. Let’s be honest, Brook Lopez is the only other established NBA player on the Nets that would scare a defense.

  • blueCypher

    Ya , dont think they are winning tonight. But please no blow out hehe

  • CaliUSMC

    TRUST THE PROCESS

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    The bench is expected to get the job done. They are really hungry for the minutes. You will see lots of motion an hour from now from the Nets.

  • webattorney

    Yes, against Donmocow poster for 5K check payable to J Lin Foundation because he seemed so certain that Nets would make the playoff. Nets may or may not, but I thought it was a good bet. Gotta say though Nets don’t give up. Respect. My estimate is still 30 games: 20 games + 10 more games due to Lin = 30 games.

  • blueCypher

    Haha. Are we in philly ?

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Atkinson has been controlling Brook’s minutes in every game.

  • blueCypher

    Other good games tonight ?

  • Cookiemole

    There are reports that brook has plantar fasciitis

  • Yura

    You’ll be surprised. Brook being out can be a huge motive to other players. I have a good feeling about this game.

  • 1mtoldman

    one thing i noticed when i started following lin is that team fan site posters are largely “cynical and negative attitude” to their teams. these seem to be the ones who post! its pretty consistent for all teams whether good or bad.

    and fans always think they “know what’s better for the team”.

    Clifford is so unfair to Lin by saying Lin is better playing of the bench in the past, now and (the worst part) future. It was the when he responsed to a reporter asking his thoughts on starting Lin after Lin leading Hornets beat Cavs. I cannot wait to see the match between Nets an Hornets nex Friday.

    I really like Nets has very good 2nd unit which scared the opponents in the last two games. it could only get better when Vasquez is 100% ready.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    I don’t like this resting of Lopez unless he’s not 100%.

    My guess is they want to keep him healthy to trade him and are simply afraid that he may get hurt which would destroy his trade value…Brook had been a bit injury prone in the past.

    Hope I’m wrong on this, of course.

    He did not speak from the the heart and he knew how much mess Lin had cleaned up for the starters.

  • Alaingrvis

    Good shots just missing

  • zxcvb

    Sometimes it takes time to find rhythm. I want to see Lin start a game 1-6…and then finish 6-10.

  • psalm234

    Bucks is definitely not as good as Pacers or Celtics.
    Can’t finish or shoot as well.

    Nets lacked energy due to B2B, hope they heat up soon

  • YESYESYES

    I don’t think Atkinson cares about win much for today’s game. Focus on the development of all players before the team gets really competitive. Plan for 82 games.

  • Click Click

    Bog is gonna have to take over tonight. He didn’t do much last night, so he has to help carry this team that looks tired and out of it.

  • Click Click

    Booker still playing with lots of energy though…

  • kauaiblue

    Booker is good…

  • blueCypher

    This is one of those ugly grind it out performances

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Seems like a physical game.

  • Bulldog

    How many 3s have Nets missed so far?

  • Click Click

    Skilpatrick with da 3!

  • zxcvb

    I really like the grit so far — shots ain’t falling for anyone but Bojan, but they’re keeping it close with defense and hustle.

  • YESYESYES

    Booker had double double last night?

  • CaliUSMC

    1/10

  • Bulldog

    Nice dunk!!! Booker!!!

  • Win

    I like how Lin, Skil and Booker plays.

  • Click Click

    Lin helps take the lead! WOOT

  • psalm234

    Lin made layup after a miss
    28-27!

  • zxcvb

    Lin with the putback on, uh, Lin’s miss!

  • CaliUSMC

    thank god..

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Before long the Nets takes the lead.

  • GoJLin!

    Lin with +6 help turn around Lead!

  • cshot

    was gonna kill jeremy for that

  • kauaiblue

    Come on boys… we can win this!

  • aras

    PHEEW LIN MAN DONT MISS BUNNIES!

  • Alaingrvis

    lol

  • zxcvb

    Haha! I love this “ugly” game. Lin and others are clearly winded, but they’re WINNING with grit.

    Even ice-cold, Lin is a WINNER on the court.

  • takeme2cruz

    J Kidd really prepared for Lin.

  • Alaingrvis

    This game is very winnable.

  • Briiick

    What a complicated point !

  • zxcvb

    He wanted a free rebound!

  • CaliUSMC

    atleast it wasn’t another phantom missed layup lol

  • kauaiblue

    I think he still has ptsd from getting hammered near the rim,,,

  • Click Click

    LOL

  • cshot

    i love sean kp. he just plays the right way. very good next to lin

  • Alaingrvis

    i agree

  • grover chang

    Bad stats happens to Lin. Especially back to back. But somehow that doesn’t necessarily mean his team loses. Whatever the stats good to see Lin do what needs to be done to win. Never gives up.

  • Click Click

    Kilpatrick said Lin is his big bro. They have a good relationship already.

  • blueCypher

    Haha, is Lin purposely trying to sabotage his percentage

  • aras

    ill go with that lol

  • zxcvb

    There’s still time too. Lin can always reel off 4 buckets in a row, especially the the 4th.

  • blueCypher

    He is not going to hit efficient numbers all the time. Back to backs really get to him though

  • Win

    Great pass from AB to Scola!

  • grover chang

    Scola rebounding well among the trees.

  • blueCypher

    Yup, love skilpatrick

  • cshot

    bennett cant hit anything dude

  • grover chang

    AB 3333

  • Win

    And they rob an assist from AB… smh.

  • Click Click

    Anthony Bennett with a sick move into 3!

  • zxcvb

    Very impressive there.

  • cshot

    timing of this comment was just a fail lol

  • GoJLin!

    KP playing good! Score, Block, STL and Assist!

  • grover chang

    Foul guys no big deal. Gonna use a 15 man roster. LOL

  • grover chang

    Hope bog starts nailing his shots soon.

  • cshot

    come on man….when delly drives its like a floater or a oop. not predictable at all

  • Win

    Hamilton can pass too. too bad Bog missed that shot.

  • Click Click

    Lin’s back

  • Click Click

    “Jeremy Lin drew the defense in”

  • sws94

    OK, that was nice Lin.

  • Win

    I like that, let Lin be the floor general and good thing will happen.

  • YESYESYES

    The lineup change so much for rebuilding the team, Lin has tough game

  • zxcvb

    Lin and Kilpatrick with nice “ESP” as Clyde would say.

  • blueCypher

    That is one empty arena 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    Lin and kilpatrick have something nice building

  • CaliUSMC

    What stream are you on man

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    This is a 3 point shooting lineup!

  • grover chang

    Lin using his brains. Since body tired.

  • zxcvb

    Lin to Bennett, nice!

  • aras

    nice set up lin!

  • Win

    Antetokounmpo is super long, just like his name.

  • grover chang

    Man these bucks are tall.

  • Click Click

    TV

  • Win

    Good foul AB!

  • blueCypher

    Giannis is an athletic freak.

  • Win

    of cause it wasn’t a clear path foul. Lol

  • sws94

    Lin is fine in the 3rd stint.

  • CaliUSMC

    Lin with the good yell to cause Delly to miss his 3

  • zxcvb

    Bucks with good D (all that length) and Nets are tired from last night.

    Just win, baby. Ugly, pretty doesn’t matter. Keep it close and let Lin take over the 4th.

  • sws94

    Yeah, but he left him open. He has to be careful about doubling down against better 3-point shooting guards.

  • CaliUSMC

    no wonder lol

  • grover chang

    This buck team is scary. Long and athletic. Opposite of Nets reputation. Tough match up, especially without your main big man. Proud they are staying this close.

  • Win

    Wow, Pacers down by 20 against the Bulls….

  • sport

    Back to back game takes its toll.

  • CaliUSMC

    Something wrong with Teague

  • sport

    Going to be a close game, Nets obviously doesn’t have as much energy due to back to back game.

  • blueCypher

    And he can handle the ball too. I can see why Bucks put down 100mil for him

  • grover chang

    Have to be really open against these bucks.

  • Win

    Maybe not use to the system yet?

  • CaliUSMC

    Lins shots are falling short

  • zxcvb

    Classic sign of tired legs.

  • grover chang

    Nice charge taken. Lin always playing. Shot or no shot

  • zxcvb

    Harris! Goaltend by Giannis counted as bucket…boo.

  • zxcvb

    Refs calling everything for Bucks now.

  • Win

    JH!!!!

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Hamilton and Jefferson have cold hands on the road.

  • Win

    Yeah. That was an offensive goaltending

  • grover chang

    Down by 5 with Lin having an atrocious fg percentage. Lucky to only be down by 5.

  • Alaingrvis

    Bucks defense has our offense under wraps. Coach needs to make adjustments

  • Yura

    Hamilton has missed every shot!!

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Bad game for Lin..the good news is the Bucks should be leading by double digit.

    Do not like the resting of Lopez at all…This game was winnable with Lopez in there…The game is still winnable but with Lopez, the change of grabbing this game would had been a bit higher.

  • zxcvb

    Nice work despite cold shooting, just 5pts down on a road back-to-back.

    Lin’s gotta ignore the boxscore and keep shooting. Shake off the 2-9 start and finish 7-18.

  • cdblue10

    3’s aint fallin tonite,if we just hit 4 of those .

  • Win

    We still in the game and consider it is a back to back game and without Brook, I say this is not bad at all.

  • grover chang

    No Ham-Lin PNR. Have they tried that tonight to substitute for Brook-Lin

  • Alaingrvis

    Its still very winnable without him there

  • blueCypher

    We are in the game, and shots not falling. That is good.

  • YESYESYES

    RHJ has 3 off nights already?

  • Win

    His defense is decent.

  • I am The Jason

    What happen to screens and cuts. Too many 3pt attempts. I hope they adjust after the half

  • YESYESYES

    I see.

  • sport

    Too many dribbling and players trying to handle the ball, let Lin lead the team!

  • cdblue10

    They can’t execute it,no one is capable to play the middle.

  • Alaingrvis

    watching the bucks play is a nightmare

  • grover chang

    I see them cut but no passing lanes. These bucks are so big and fast.

  • sport

    Why is Lopez resting again?

  • Click Click

    Sadly, watching the Nets play this game is worse nightmare.

  • cdblue10

    Reserving him for the playoff..lol

  • aras

    as i thought this game was going to be difficult the driving game is not going to work on this team too tall. Might get a couple of them here and there but Lin should not be discouraged by the Fg pecentage keep shooting you are the best offensive weapon on this team FG percentage dont matter.

  • BobbyH

    It is ok to be ugly. Just win

  • sport

    He’s young he can play more games :/ Not like he’s as old as Tim Duncan.

  • YESYESYES

    so many close shots, if 50% of them get in, we are winning. let’s wish some luck on the second half. Bennett getting better.

  • GoJLin!

    End 2ndQ, NETs 41 to 46; Lin 17 min, 5 Pts, 2R, 3A +3

    NETs with 19 “3pt attemps” (only made 5); 25 Rebonds, 8 Ast with 9TO, 4 STL, 3BLK
    MIL only has 10 “3pt attemps”; 28 Rebonds, 13 Ast with 5TO, 5 STL, 3 BLK

  • sport

    Lopez not playing and they have to make up for the 25 points he provides. :/ They’d be leading by at least 10 points if Lopez was playing for sure. Lin playing too passive not aggressive enough this game, need to take more shots.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    Save his legs

  • cdblue10

    I think Atkinson is reserving Lopez next season when they have a better chance

  • Briiick

    If we can hang in there, Lin will likely pull it in the 4th quarter.

  • Kwok Wai Lai

    When Hamilton and Jefferson are cold like this, the Nets is going to be in trouble.

  • sport

    Guess it’s a good test for Nets to try to win without one of their star players. But Lin really needs to be more aggressive, too much passing and guys doing their own thing.

  • Click Click

    I feel bad for Pacers. They’re getting owned by Bulls right now. They’ve had back to back games on the road. We’re lucky we played at home last night and are playing the Bucks tonight. If this was a better team, we’d also be getting destroyed right now.

  • Click Click

    Everybody is cold. Playing back to back games suck.

  • sport

    I agree, Lin not playing well either these back to back definitely affects their energy.

  • Click Click

    If he had made a few of those easy baskets like he normally does, we’d be up by at least 4 right now.

    Let’s just hope he can wake himself and this team up in the 2nd half and pull out a win tonight.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    This team is very long and it’s clearly effected Lin…I pray for a better second half.

  • Click Click

    Lin with a nice move on Delly

  • GoJLin!

    Oh, No, Nov 9th, play with Nicks, that is a Back to Back game; Wish they can beat Nicks at MSG in front of NY fans.

  • zxcvb

    Good PnR defense…better shot by Lin.

  • zxcvb

    Lin will get up for that game. He won’t admit it, but he will be extra charged.

  • zxcvb

    And-1 for Bojan. Need him tonight…just needs to play within the offense, not freestyle.

  • Click Click

    Lin steal into Booker!

  • grover chang

    Good steal Lin. Keep playing.

  • Yura

    BOOKER!!!!!!

  • zxcvb

    Lin about to take over…

  • I am The Jason

    Bogs needs to take the intensity down a little. Too reckless

  • psalm234

    What a great steal by Lin and finish by LeBron..uhm, Booker!

  • psalm234

    When Booker smiles, he looks like a mini-LeBron

  • Click Click

    Man, RHJ and JHam are ice cold tonight. Lin is also off with his shots. We need Bog and Booker to dominate.

  • zxcvb

    RHJ killing them.

  • sws94

    Refs are a problem this game. Lin shouldn’t get a TO there. He was hacked.

  • zxcvb

    Nets getting hammered…no calls.

  • Win

    That was a carry…..

  • cshot

    da h*** is up with this officiating

  • Howan Cheung

    can’t the coach call for a review?

  • psalm234

    “Lin got hit, no call!”

  • Win

    Calls are favor the Bucks….

  • sport

    Come on Lin what was that? Wake up!!

  • Click Click

    It’s been really bad and lopsided. Even some of the Bucks fans in the Reddit game thread agrees. We’re getting screwed hard by the refs this game.

  • zxcvb

    He got fouled man.

  • Click Click

    He got bumped and no call. That was on the refs, not Lin.

  • Yura

    He is so frustrated right now.

  • sport

    You’re not the 1st one to say that, playing style and facial features also similar. Too bad he’s no where near Lebron though if not we’d have a 3rd star.

  • zxcvb

    Finally a bucket from RHJ.

  • psalm234

    Announcer also got it right, “Lin got hit. No CALL!”

  • zxcvb

    Finally a FT call for him. 1 out of 4 ain’t bad…

  • zxcvb

    Lin ball to Ham for 3!

  • zxcvb

    Bennett again!

  • Win

    Ham!!!

  • psalm234

    Nets needs to withstand his surge by the Bucks

    Stay within 5-7 pts to finish Q3

  • zxcvb

    Need to be more physical on D. See what the refs call and don’t call.

  • Win

    AB!!!!!!!!!!

  • zxcvb

    Breather for Lin and it’s Whitehead instead of Vasquez.

  • blueCypher

    Yes, plug in Whitehead.

  • sport

    Time to see what Whitehead can do!

  • psalm234

    I like it

  • sws94

    Vazquez is injured. Out for the rest of the game.

  • zxcvb

    Win or lose, I like this game. All grit from the Nets despite awful calls all game.

  • I am The Jason

    The Nets defense is making me weep

  • Click Click

    When did they say this?

  • Click Click

    And a back to back game on the road without Brook.

    Giannis is having his way with the Nets. Nobody can stop him.

  • Alaingrvis

    vasques is hurt BTW

  • sws94

    They announced it earlier in the 3Q

  • zxcvb

    sore right ankle, maybe turned it?

  • psalm234

    oh my, Bennet needs to finish that putback :[

  • cshot

    bennett misses sooooo many easy buckets its amazing

  • zxcvb

    Even cold from the field, Lin is +3. He needs to be out there again. They can still win this.

  • psalm234

    he didn’t have the legs in the 3rd… hopefully he got a final push in the 4th quarter

  • zxcvb

    Hoping they finally get some calls and he can get FTs.

  • Click Click

    Oh, must’ve missed it.

  • Alaingrvis

    yup

  • zxcvb

    They should have fouled Giannis more. Make him shoot FTs, wear him down.

  • jakey

    What’s the score?

  • psalm234

    Scola had great hands for the putback after offensive rebound

  • psalm234

    65-74

  • golfhacker

    Harris should never cross the 3pt line.

  • Click Click

    Yeah, but he’s dunking on the Nets at will. You gotta hard foul him to stop that. Not sure Nets want to do that.

  • cshot

    hes got some ugly to in like the most random moments

  • sport

    I think we’re all glad Whitehead is finally playing. I hope Vasquez is ok though.

  • sport

    I agree.

  • sport

    I hope Lin comes in soon, don’t want the lead to get too wide.

  • zxcvb

    Nice burst by the bench!

  • sport

    Great defense by Nets!

  • Epie

    I think he heard you lol

  • sws94

    Kilpatrick is going to be good.

  • sport

    Kilpatrick and Scola are the only ones from the bench I don’t cringe when they head to the rim. Kilpatrick definitely need more minutes and touches! I actually won’t mind if he starts over Bog who’s a bit of a ball hog.

  • Win

    Scola need help defense on Monroe

  • Alaingrvis

    Whitehead over vasques

  • sport

    Can see him being a borderline star, loads of potential to become their 3rd star!

  • cshot

    skp is saving us

  • Click Click

    That drive and finish was very Lin-like. Love Skilpatrick.

  • Epie

    OMG KP I luv u

  • Yura

    YES

  • zxcvb

    Bench kept it close, but didn’t make up any ground. Lin and Booker need to get back out there.

  • Win

    Kilp should on the starting lineup.

  • sport

    Bench did great got the lead down to 7. I hope KA will try plugging Kilpatrick into the starting lineup. Bog is too much of a ball hog which makes Lin become passive.

  • Win

    Start KP, sit Bog pls… He is out of control most of the time.

  • zxcvb

    Lead was 5 when Lin checked out. So it didn’t go down.

  • Click Click

    Lin might have to play the entire 4th quarter to win this game.

  • sport

    YES! I just said the same thing!! Kilpatrick should start not Bogdanovic!

  • sport

    Preferably with Kilpatrick! Bog thinks he’s better than he actually is! Not that great at the rim, dribbles too much, and ball hogs.

  • sws94

    Mircacle shot, Lin.

  • zxcvb

    LINNNNNNN ANNNNNN ONNNNNEE

  • zxcvb

    Circus is in town.

  • aras

    how in the h*** does he keep making those shots?

  • zxcvb

    Missed the FT though. Ugh, ha.

  • Yura

    That was acrobatic lol

  • Win

    Wowowowowo!

  • sport

    I just replied you but yes! Bog can go after this season not that great at the rim, thinks he’s better than he actually is and doesn’t look for teammates! In fact Kilpatrick should be starting over him I’m serious! I hope KA sees what we’re seeing!

  • zxcvb

    Lots of wide-open 3s…just not falling for anyone. That’s the difference so far.

  • aras

    threes not falling tonight which is needed

  • cshot

    jeremy and his free throws……

  • zxcvb

    Finally getting some FTs though.

  • golfhacker

    At least Booker is aggressive.

  • zxcvb

    That’s the one thing I hate on Lin for…come on, Jeremy.

  • aras

    yup he needs to seriously fix that

  • sport

    Mini Lebron I mean Booker is great!! How long is is contract? Nets needs to keep him for sure!

  • golfhacker

    No arc on Lin’s shot tonight.

  • Alaingrvis

    No more threes

  • zxcvb

    Shouldn’t have passed to him that late in the clock.

  • aras

    COME ON LIN man with the shots

  • GoJLin!

    JLin shots are cold, but he did 2 STLs!

  • Briiick

    Lin is making the call now, not MO.

  • Alaingrvis

    I change my mind keep shooting it

  • sport

    Scola with the vet move!! Good job! Lin’s 3s are ice cold should try some mid jumpers instead to get going!

  • aras

    why is your feed ahead?

  • Win

    Yeah! Lets attack the basket more.

    How many pts does Lin have single digits right? (afraid to check…) Just win the game!

    Lin getting a breather…don’t know if they can survive a break.

  • psalm234

    10pts/5asts

  • Win

    We can do this, we looks like a veteran team.

  • heart

    Guys/gals, we just need to pray for Lin to have confidence in his shot to go in. Believe is key. Don’t speak negative when he misses. That’s negative energy! Let’s pray that Nets pull through somehow!

  • Win

    It is ok that his 3s weren’t falling, just attack the basket more.

  • Click Click

    I hope Booker is OK. This Nets team is screwed if he’s injured.

  • Win

    Omg Booker hurt…

  • sport

    LOL Scola is so good he just throws it in!!

  • zxcvb

    SCOLA gives them a lead.

  • sws94

    Whitehead is the 2nd guard. In fact, he should play with Lin at times.

  • Win

    Bog should be a spot up shooter!

  • zxcvb

    So much for the lead, lol.

  • AL

    whats wrong with Lopez?

  • sport

    Great ball movement! Scola with the 3!! Scola and Bog holding down the bench!!

  • Win

    Scola!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Coach resting him. I hope there isn’t any secret injury we don’t know about. But seriously, KA is treating him like he’s old man Tim Duncan!

  • zxcvb

    Delly making a dumb foul to send Whitehead to the line.

    Is lin off tonight or did coach not play much pnr

  • Alaingrvis

    Bucks are long

  • zxcvb

    Both, but mostly the former.

    of night for sure 3s are completely cold, can’t get to the rim due to Buck’s long arms.

  • zxcvb

    Bench getting outmatched now. Time to bring LIn back in after this timeout.

  • aras

    COME ON WHITEHEAD

  • psalm234

    Lin didn’t shoot well but he is still needed to draw fouls and play great defense.
    Hopefully he gets some rest and come back at 4-5 min mark

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Kenny should had taken whitehead out after the first mistake….let him make a few, than sit him to let him cool down…bad coaching

  • cshot

    put llin in plz lol

  • Alaingrvis

    No that would be a mistake. He cant be scared of making mistakes

  • Win

    Whitehead is still raw, but a lot of potential

  • sport

    Lin needs to come back after this timeout!

  • sws94

    RHJ has been terrible.

  • sport

    Yes, I’d rather Kilpatrick started over him! I don’t like Bog either.

    Nice, Lin and Booker are back in!

  • psalm234

    Lin back in at 5:28 with SKil

  • zxcvb

    Bad TO by Lin there…ugh.

  • aras

    Man lin cant get a bucket to save his life man

  • Alaingrvis

    Just cant buy a shot today

  • Win

    Didn’t Vaughn traded by the Hornets?

  • sport

    OMG Lin 4-16 really out cold!

  • cshot

    o boy….. that was too cute

  • GoJLin!

    Lin icy cold, thanks God, he still has 8 Assist.

  • aras

    yup but his shooting has been waaaay off hope the confidence dont drop but hes had great looks really

  • sport

    Lin can’t even throw in a 2 pointer ouch….he’s so cold it’s not even funny 4-16. But I’m glad Lin’s got the green light to shoot! When was the last time a coach allowed Lin to shoot this much even when he’s off! THank You Kenny Atkinson!

  • zxcvb

    I expected better from Lin tonight. Just needed 2-3 more buckets and this is a win.

    Still a chance though. He’s gotta drive to the rim, they’re in the bonus.

  • YESYESYES

    Again, lets see how Nets doing after 10 games.

  • psalm234

    Lin and the Nets need to dig deep here ..
    Not sure if he had the legs but hoping for the best

  • I am The Jason

    Unless Brook Lopez is hurt, he needs to be on the court.

  • sport

    Lin needs to take a mid range jumper, he’s only taken 3s and layups not good.

  • zxcvb

    Not over folks!

  • Win

    We should be able to win this game if Brook is playing.

  • zxcvb

    These refs…jesus.

  • sport

    Yes I don’t know why coach is resting him so much! Something doesn’t seem right!

  • GoJLin!

    Okay, JLin, just give me 10/10, Please! ONE more AST!

  • Win

    Ham!!!!

  • psalm234

    Lin’s 9th assist to JHam 3

  • Win

    Wow wtf, The ref sucks!

  • zxcvb

    Not in the restricted area…this should be reversed.

    Stayed FTs…ugh. Refs handing this to Bucks.

  • Win

    The ref rob us this game.

  • aras

    Hit these damn free throws lin

  • Maknusia

    yup…and I dont remember JL taking this many shots when his shots were not falling….good to see him shoot thru it…

  • zxcvb

    FTs for Lin. 2/2

  • Epie

    wow empty stadium

  • zxcvb

    LIN STEAL!!!

    If they lose, Nets fans will blame Lin. And he wasn’t good tonight, but he was far from bad with his defense.

  • aras

    NICE STEAL LIN

  • Yura

    I”m so nervous

  • Win

    Nice steal!!!!!

    Good game. I really like this Nets team!

    That SUX

    arghhhhh.. What a heartbreaker!
    But Nets gave it their ALL

  • blubell

    Did I scare u?

  • cshot

    wow thats like the worst way to lose it :// good game tho

  • sport

    Again why did coach rest Lopez? With Lopez they could’ve won this!

  • GoJLin!

    Booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo to Refs!

  • Win

    RHJ should have box out!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LAJane

    Boohoohoo =(
    But glad to see you here!

  • blubell

    Hi 🙂

  • Alaingrvis

    Bucks are long. Its theyre advantage

  • Michael

    If I say yes do I get some candy o.-

  • MEL LIN

    yes.

  • Maknusia

    NETS gave it all guys…the game was that close, and they did well specifically for a back to back game on the road!

  • sws94

    Really great effort by the team. As for Lin, he really played well in the 4th. Just didn’t have his jump shot tonight.

  • YESYESYES

    If Bennett jumped for the rebound for the final play, we had a change. He was standing there under the basket

  • blubell

    Candy will keep u awake… so no!

  • LAJane

    Sigh. still…double double on a bad night

  • grover chang

    Not gonna kill Lin for this loss. He played really hard and made good plays. But 4-16 really hurts. I’m sure no one harder on Lin then Lin himself.

  • Alaingrvis

    Later in the year we will win this type of game. Building game by game

  • sport

    Bucks are going to be a tough match up if we do make playoffs and face them. Long arm kept Lin from making layups at the rim. But Lin should’ve shot some mid range 2s not sure why he kept shooting 3s.

  • GoJLin!

    Plus 3 STLs and +11; He try!

  • Alaingrvis

    Dispite his shot he played great. Shots dont fall sometimes

  • Joe what do you know

    Oh wow… quite a game. Having stomach cramp… Such a dagger but I think the Nets have put up a good fight… Lin really controlled the flow both offensively and defensively in clutch time.

  • YESYESYES

    10 more games, it will be much better.

  • Nitron

    Good positive mind set

  • sport

    Need to add variety to his offense. I hope he learns from this lose and figures out how to overcome the Bucks. Again he shouldn’t have taken so many 3s should’ve tried some mid range 2s or floaters. His floater is certainly one of his weaknesses.

  • joy

    Plus the longest mins again – 32 mins

  • grover chang

    This kind of effort on back to back without lopez, have to love the fight. Even the Buck’s announcers were impressed. Would think Net fans appreciate it too.

  • Michael

    Worst Halloween ever…The game was good though. Very gritty these Nets.

  • Yura

    How come that time out didn’t count? :/

  • zxcvb

    Just needed one more rebound. Or one more 50/50 call!

  • zxcvb

    Pretty impressive all things considered.

  • I am The Jason

    This is what happens when Lopez does not play when he is healthy.

  • grover chang

    I wish when he saw Buck’s were in the bonus that he just drive and draw some FT. Thought he would. Use to do that in the past. I’m sure he and coach will talk about that.

  • cdblue10

    They have a bad game and still almost won the game considering Lopez didn’t even play.I’ll take it.

  • joy

    Lack of experience?

  • Briiick

    Too sensitive to pain.

  • Epie

    One more FT

  • sport

    Next time please grab the rebound! KA will have a lot to go over this game including Lin who was too focused on taking 3s instead of mixing them up.

  • Yura

    I think it was a good way to lose a game considering they’re supposed to be one of the worst in the NBA..

  • MEL LIN

    1.) Bennett is so Slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
    2.) Whitehead was ok but you don’t use a rookie during 4th quarter.
    3.) RHJ was cold and did box out in the end.
    4.) Jlin passing great. I’m ok him missing 3’s. But his FT sigh…needs to make those automatic.
    5.) Overall they battled and played hard. Give them credit.

  • sport

    Bennett look quite out of shape, has fat instead of muscles. Needs to slim down a lot! How did this guy become no.1 pick is beyond me.

  • MEL LIN

    They need more plays for Lin. they are just trapping him forcing him to give up the ball.

  • grover chang

    Pray Lin gets some good rest. Will need it.

  • Alaingrvis

    Lin got open shot after open shot. Just need to nail it. It happens though. Moist teams are not as long as the bucks

  • golfhacker

    If Brook plays tonight, we win. Who cares about rest now? Harder to make up ground later in the year. Need to win games when you can.

  • sport

    Yes not sure what’s KA thinking, Lopez is still young he isn’t Tim Duncan and can play these games! rest Lopez when we’re up against an easy team! We needed Lopez’s height and strength this game!

  • MEL LIN

    Why didn’t KA tell Bennett to run faster my son wanted to make this comment.

  • sport

    Totally agree! If we were against a lottery team sure rest him but we were up against a tough Bucks team!

  • joy

    This makes me wonder again if Lopez is 100% healthy.

  • sport

    He’s too fat too run, guy needs to work out a lot at the gym! TOtally out of shape and why he’s been on 4 different team as a no.1 pick! The GM who picked him as no.1 pick needs to be fired!

  • sport

    :/ Yes something doesn’t seem right! Either he’s getting traded or he’s injured and team has it under wraps.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Bogs is good player.

  • golfhacker

    I’m tired about Lin needing to get rest. Everyone has to go through it. Do Lebron fans ever say Lebron needs rest?

  • Win

    Good spot up shooter.

  • cshot

    I legit feel sick hahaa. This sucks so bad. Imagine how they feel

  • joy

    Absolutely!

  • SK

    RHJ and Bennett are just terrible

  • Win

    I am actually ok with this lost. A lot of positive from this game.

  • sport

    Too much of a ball hog though, coach needs to reign him in and make changes. Oh and Kilpatrick needs to start! Whitehead needs more minutes to be solid!

  • MEL LIN

    My Son laughing at your comment. = ) But seriously, Bennett is useless and slowwwwww. my son agrees with me.

  • Win

    Just wondering, how old is your son? 🙂

  • joy

    But we are not Lebron fans. Lol

  • MEL LIN

    yeah. somehow I didn’t feel sorry for them because I felt that they played hard as a team. That last play was a mistake with no box out from RHJ.

  • Win

    Back to back, with out Brook, gotta give them credit.

  • joy

    Lol

  • aggressiveplayer

    Dude Lin had an awful shooting night but my GOD his defense is amazing.

  • joy

    Needs to learn how to defend.

  • Win

    I don’t think Brook need to rest the entire game. Maybe minute restriction is good enough?

  • MEL LIN

    I am 8 years old. <<< He is the one typing.

  • webattorney

    Bennett especially is bad. Can’t believe he was a former number 1 draftee. An entertaining game though. At least Lin took 16 shots I see. Lol Delly is not a bad player. But this is the kind of game Nets has to win to make the playoff.

    Bennett is deceptively unathletic. Lol Guy looks like he’s athletic, but he’s a slow-mo without power or hops. Bog probably is more athletic than Bennett. Lol

  • Alaingrvis

    If This is the new bad Lin games geez ill take a double double any day.

  • Win

    Very cute! Hi buddy. 🙂

  • golfhacker

    That is a great idea. He at least is a big body to clog the paint.

  • MEL LIN

    hello there. = ) <<<< He has been watching all the games with me.

  • kauaiblue

    Did anyone see that dirty tripping attempt by dellavanova on jlin in late 4th? punk move…

  • Yascar

    Agreed

  • sport

    aww Hi little man! XD

  • kauaiblue

    Is stamina an issue with jlin still? back to back should not be an issue anymore…

  • SK

    -15 and -17. Entertaining but heartbreaking. Whenever I see RHJ try to create offense off the dribble, I cringe. Usually ends up with a TO or miss. Bennett is either the slowest guy ever or he’s just not trying.

  • sport

    He needs to get in shape or else he’s out of the league soon.

  • webattorney

    At least RHJ has a misguided motor; Bennett is a grandpa.

  • webattorney

    Bennett doesn’t belong in NBA. This is the first time I am saying that about a player.

  • sport

    Yes no fighting spirit, slow, out of shape, he’s a goner. Not sure why Nets picked him up.

  • MEL LIN

    Booker I think got hurt this game and the last game versus Pacers.

  • webattorney

    Me neither. Lol There is NOT even a fighting spirit there. Canada did something to him. Lol Not even a scowl like my fav player Patrick Beverley. Lol At least PB goes for the knees.

  • cshot

    Not even suprised

  • sport

    more like legs were tired, 3s were frozen, couldn’t get to the rim with Bucks’ long arms. Also didn’t try mid range jumpers or turn around jumpers, just kept taking 3 pointers.

  • MEL LIN

    Jlin is not as effective because there’s no threat underneath the basket so all the bigs can just come out and contest his shot. He has no one to pass to other the perimeter players.

  • GoJLin!

    Yes, and besides the 12 points, he contributed 3 RB, 10 AST, & 3 STL! Wish he rest well and come back with more energy next game!

  • sport

    Booker or Brook Lopez?

  • Win

    I think booker.

  • webattorney

    Agreed. He’s young and this is only 3rd game. It’s not as if Lin played 40 minutes consecutively. As long as he cuts out some computer games, he should be fine.

  • MEL LIN

    Booker as in mini lebron

  • joy

    I don think it’s an issue. Don’t forget he’s taking a lot of things on the court with new/inexperienced players and not to mention his defense is in credible tonight which can takes lots of his energy.

  • sport

    Shows how important Lopez is. When he’s under the basket players have to double or triple team him which leaves space for Lin to make mid-jumpers.

  • Steppen03

    79 games more to play – I’ll take 55% Lin getting hot and that’s 45+ wins. Good efforts by the team! JLin trust his threes so that’s that. No doubts.

  • zxcvb

    He was GREAT last season on back-to-backs. He just had a cold shooting night. Legs weren’t there, but all players have to deal with that and adjust.

  • webattorney

    Man, you are on your way to being a GM in NBA. Keep it up kid.

  • sport

    Really? Did something happen? He might have over did it last game with those dunks…

  • zxcvb

    Love the confidence on the shot, even with the misses. It’ll “even out” in the next game(s) with 4-5 or 5-8 from deep.

  • MEL LIN

    My Son said you are exactly right.

  • sws94

    And he had 10 assists.

  • MEL LIN

    Yeah. He was limping quite a bit but he played through it.

  • CJSHYY

    KA seems not trust Vasquez now… He would rather use Whitehead instead.

  • sport

    lol He’s very smart.

  • zxcvb

    GV turned his ankle.

  • CJSHYY

    I see.

  • MEL LIN

    Oh yeah he too is hurt and it’s just the 3rd game.

  • sport

    He needs to stay healthy, we don’t have much guys who can go up strong, run down the court, and play defense.

  • hchao

    no doubt about that

  • joy

    This shows he’s not completely recovered I think.

  • MEL LIN

    True. Him and Hamilton are the hustle bigs.

  • Alaingrvis

    Lin saying he needs to hit more shots, if he did the nets would of won.

  • Alaingrvis

    he isnt. its obvious

  • rookie75094

    beverly is one of my least favorite players…boo!!!

  • MEL LIN

    I like the way Scola played tonight. He made that crucial three but KA replaced him with the super slowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww Bennettttttttttttttttttt.

  • cshot

    Typical of him to say that :/ next time bro next time

  • hchao

    He did the same to SK2 too after that…same old dirty defense from dellavanova

  • David Kim

    He is a dirty player…

  • Yura

    He is his biggest critic.

  • sport

    He should rest, being injured on court hurts the team more than help it. If he’s healthy and can knock down 3s he’d be very useful.

  • blubell

  • sport

    Yes I’m not sure why Scola was taken out, everything went down hill after Scola was out! Not sure what KA was experimenting there! Scola’s veteran experience, power to get to the rim and 3s were much needed to win this! Bennett should NOT have closed the game!

  • hchao

    3 steals not even a PF incredible vs dirty dellavanov’s 4 PF

  • zxcvb

    Happy he got the double-double, but I’ll be honest — I expected a big scoring game from Lin.

    I’m sure he’s disappointed in himself despite his great passing and defense. I was surprised he didn’t attack the rim more for FTs in the 4th when they finally got some calls. Probably protecting his body — can’t afford to get injured.

  • hchao

    18 minutes with 1 REB…come on this guy has serious mentality problems

  • MEL LIN

    I am good at convincing people thanks

  • joy

    Scola’s is old. I think KA was trying to carefully control his min so he has fresh legs/arms. AB hasn’t played in G1&2, he better picks up quickly.

  • Epie

    Didn’t realize Hamilton had a great block on the lost shot. Good effort.

  • kittyhead

    Comon let’s reserve the precious Scola on a B2B game! Give Bennett more time to grow and build up confidence. I won’t give him up so soon.

  • YESYESYES

    I hope Lin just relaxes and forget about this game. Do his routine practices, he will find his shooting back.

  • MEL LIN

    Understood. But you don’t sit the hot player when the game was so close and he was in rhythm causing them to lose the lead.

  • joy

    Lopez ‘said’ I should have played tonight, the Nets would have won. Lol

  • sport

    Totally agree! Scola had the hot hand! Lin was dead tired and still played. No reason why Scola couldn’t be inserted last minute to make shots!

  • InfiniteWisdom

    i aint even mad… another road game, another game kenny doesnt really try to win by sitting brook. lin needed to play real well tonight to get the w, but his shot was off, his d was meh… passing was good. he needs to play better. some of those 3’s were wide open. he even said it himself. if he makes a couple more shots, we win… everyone else played pretty well. no real complaints. booker, bogs, skil, scola all stepped up. yes lin was trapped all night, but his shot failed him. that’s on him. he needs to do better. on to next game… we home, so im sure kenny will play for the win…

    PS: that offensive goaltending man it came back to bite us… why cant that be reviewed? why doesnt the nba have a challenge system… ugh…

  • psalm234
  • sport

    That last shot was goaltending? I thought they reviewed it why didn’t the coach ask for a review?! Every game counts.

  • joy

    He does. In the post interview, he blamed himself for losing.

  • sport

    Shouldn’t have settled for 3s, taking some mid or turn around jumpers would’ve helped. Lin needs to talk to Atkinson and bring back his cutting to the basket plays he used effectively during Hornets! They need another play maker who can pass well to Lin and not ball hog. Lin can be deadly at the 2 guard position if KA’s willing to mix it up. Lin needs to keep talking to him to make his offense better.

  • cshot

    no he means the one earlier. i think it was in like the 3rd quarter

  • sport

    Oh I must’ve missed that one. Rather than that it would’ve been nice if KA and Lin tried over plays. Playing Lin at the 2 with Scola or Bog setting him up for cuts to the basket as SG might’ve worked. I think KA nees to explore Lin at the 2 guard position for more options.

  • aggressiveplayer

    It’s honestly not even a big deal to me. Yes, horrible shooting night but it happens even with some of the best players. It’s not like he had bad shot selection either. Not to mention having Brook would have definitely helped him out. He still showed pretty good defense tonight with those steals and also good directing the offense as usual.

  • hchao

    He’s been dealing with weight issues in the past 3 years. I think Nets
    had helped him on his weight problems before signing him. Google
    “anthony bennet weight” and you’ll see lots of reports.

  • sport

    No fighting spirit, too fat to run or jump for rebounds. Nothing stands out for him. Even Vasquez had glimpse of brightness with his 3 pointers last game and he’s injured!

  • sport

    AB and Nets needs to do a way better job cause he’s still slow and out of shape. I know they want to try to see if this “no.1 pick” still has potential but guy needs to put in more effort. There’s no excuse for him to be this out of shape as a NBA player. He makes guys like Harden and Melo look fit.

  • grover chang

    LeBron fans may not say he needs rest but LeBron did. He just took a 10 day vacation in the middle of the season last year.

  • stam

    thickness and meat does not mean muscle lol

  • stam

    They played with heart and without Lopez… that is pretty good.

  • LAJane

    I wish he’d stop doing that.

  • grover chang

    This wasn’t Lin’s first stinker and won’t be his last. He usually does better next game.

  • spiderman

    Obviously stunk it up with the shooting, which if so-called “superstars” commit, no one blinks an eye. Probably played too much DOTA this morning when he should have been sleeping. Lin tends to bounce back the next game.

  • ZcodeSportSystem.com

    Lin was due for a bad gams, considering all the good games in preseason, and back-to-back, and the fact he had to carry extra loads offensively and the Bucks knew this…So I’m not going to blame it too much on Lin.

    I put this lost on Kenny and resting Lopez.

    I could understand that if you had your draft picks, but with no draft picks and c-grade young prospect, this franchise should at least try to win as many games as possible with their current crop of player.

  • webattorney

    Agree Nets are improving. But so are other teams. It comes down to how far teams can continue to improve. The trend seems to be: down and try to rally late in 4th. Has Nets ever led going into 4th quarter? Kilpatrick seems to be improving fast, unlike Jefferson and Bennett.

  • Acbc

    Say that to a hockey player and see what you get, lol. Idiotic comment!
