Guerschon has this
RETURN OF THE MASK!
D'Angelo Russell is out tonight.
hopefully Brad negotiates the mean streets of Brownstown Brooklyn and avoids the trap.
Think I'll listen to this on the walk to Barclays tonight:
Kyrie participated in the shoot-around and is expected to play.
I just hope he headbutts somebody while Brad Stevens distracts the refs.
Neuter the Nets
Be able to tell a lot about the team's focus tonight. Even without Irving and Horford they took care of business. With Irving back and playing a below average Nets team without their leading scorer and assist man they should win going away.
Win it for Levern Tart. Last celtics cut in early 60s. Wound up in ABA, including with the 17-61 Nets in 68-69.
Agreed. This has the hallmarks of a trap game - two home games against good teams with a road game against a crappy team in the middle.
Smells like Atlanta again. In regards to a trap game, anyway.
Watching a few minutes of Duke - MSU before tipoff and I'm not sure what to make of this. Duke is ultra talented, but none of these guys look interested in passing to each other at all
Starting at SG for Brooklyn:
Barclays retured Biggie's number.
Whole lotta green up in here.
The incomparable JAYSON TATUM!
I think I like this court
If the Nets had any fans, watching Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum torch their team would be torture.
Who was that masked man draining a straightaway three?
So goddamned filthy. God, I love this team.
I was annoyed at the first exchange of possessions, a Kyrie runner that was off, followed by a quick give-and-go for Brooklyn's 2-0 lead.
I've been OK since then.
What is this team in green that has hit 6 of their first 8 shots. I don't think I've seen that before.
Loving this start, little bit of everything
Just so much more ability to create shots with relative ease this year. More players with skill, more length.
The Kyrie - Al presence creates so many more open shots for everyone.
Thank you Billy King wherever you are
Never trade him!
Seriously? That pass from Al, that pass from Kyrie, the pump fake and then the jumper by Tatum. Seriously?
More like Jayson Greatum amirite?
Jaylen ridic defense into a Tatum three, omg
Tatum having himself a night already
It's great. And Tatum looks like a vet already.
So BKN is one of those gyms that plays music and/or annoying sound fx for the whole game.
Oh noes, did Tatum hit a contested 3?
Clean block so what the fuck is the call?
Glad Kyrie gets to knock the rust off against the Nets before the GS game.
If Theis can hit that reliably......
Kyrie hates that mask.
I fucking love Daniel Theis. What a steal.
Theis in before Baynes? This is new.
JAYLEN with the SHOWWWWTIIIIME
HE MADE IT!
JAYLEN BROWN WITH NO REGARD FOR HUMANITY!
Jaylen has a nice looking stroke. It's just a matter of time before he starts making the jumpers consistently, and when he does, look the fuck out.
And WINDMILL BITCHES.
JAYLEN MY GOODNESS
52/140 in his overseas career.
Gamecast got confused there, said Jaylen turned the ball over and then scored?
It's a little closer than the NBA three though right?
This is gonna be a tough game for the Nets if their game plan is for Dinwiddie to pound it for 20 seconds every possession.
