Spread the word darling, Omar back.


I had no idea Minaya was even working in San Diego.

Nets 2013-2014 season in review - Deron Williams


Last, but certainly not least, our 2013-2014 Player Review on Deron Williams. He's recuperating from not just ankle surgery but a disappointing season, perhaps his worst ever.

Brooklyn Nets Player Review: Shaun Livingston


There wasn't much fanfare surrounding the acquisition of Shaun Livingston in the 2013 off-season. He was coming off of a decent stretch with the Cavaliers but was mostly known for the knee injury...

Brooklyn Nets 2013-14 Player Review: Kevin Garnett


When the Nets made the decision to acquire Jason Terry, Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, it was done for two reasons. The first was for the experience and leadership the trio provided. The second,...

Brooklyn Nets Player Review: Alan Anderson


There wasn't much fanfare surrounding the Alan Anderson signing in the summer. He didn't make much of an impression in Toronto in his two seasons back from his stint overseas. He signed with the...

2013-2014 Season in Review - Brook Lopez


Brook Lopez was coming off of a solid year and was expected to take another step forward for the Nets. Unfortunately, a major foot injury occurred and he had to miss the remainder of the season....

Season on the line for Brooklyn Nets


The elimination game. They rose to the challenge (twice) in round one, now face the do-or-die challenge in the second round. After falling to the Heat and LeBron James in Brooklyn Monday, they will face the Heat in Miami Wednesday in a 7 p.m. start.

Nets try to even the series at two vs. Heat


You gotta believe! The Nets beat the Heat in front of one of the most raucous crowds in Nets history Saturday. Now they have to do it all over again Monday night if they want to remain a serious player in the playoffs, but the game is at home!

The Nets come home trying to avoid 3-0 vs the Heat


It is now crunchtime! Must-win much? The Nets play their first second round game ever at Barclays Center and their first second game overall in seven years. Can the hometown crowd inspire them? And will their stars earn their pay?

Nets try to win Game 2 before coming home


Brooklyn needs a win in the worst possible way, not just to even the series but to restore confidence after the Game 1 blowout. After beating the Heat sis straight times (two in preseason), the Nets faltered. Job #1 in Game #2: get even in the paint.

On to Miami! Nets take on Heat in second round


After a seven-year drought, the Nets are in the second round, officially the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. They face the two-time defending World Champion Heat, a team they've beat four straight (six if you count pre-season). GO Nets!

Game 7


The Brooklyn Nets and Toronto Raptors have played each other ten times this season, with each team winning five games. This is the tiebreaker and most importantly, Game Seven of their First Round...

Season on the line for Brooklyn Nets


Big game? Oh yeah. You could say it's the Nets biggest game since they moved to Brooklyn because it is. A loss would mean two first round exits. A win would mean Game 7 and the possibility of facing the world champs next week.

Nets and Raptors meet for Game 5 in Toronto


It's unlikely Rihanna will be in the stands at the Air Canada Centre Wednesday night, but she and a lot of Nets fans will face a lot of anxiety in pivotal Game 5. The Nets must win two of the last three to advance to the second round and Miami.

Brooklyn goes for the 3-1 series lead vs Toronto


Halfway home. Returning home after splitting the first two games in Toronto and in front of a raucous home crowd, the Nets were able to beat the Raptors and take the 2-1 lead in this best of seven series.

Nets and Raptors come to Brooklyn tied at One.


Playoff basketball returns to Barclays Center Friday for the first time since the Bulls broke Brooklyn's heart in Game 7 of the first round last year. The Nets are a different team and their dominance at home should produce a better result.

The Nets look for a 2-0 series lead in Toronto


The Nets played well enough Saturday to win in Toronto. Now with many of the Raptors beyond opening night jitters, Tuesday's game will be a test. Expect a better game ... and (probably) a working shot clock.

The playoffs open up in Toronto


The wait is over. After sleepwalking through the final days of the regular season after clinching their playoff spot, the Brooklyn Nets open the 2014 Playoffs up north. Game starts at 12:30 pm on YES and ESPN.

The season ends where it began


Bookends. The Nets started the season with a loss, one viewed back then as an aberration. Now, the Nets would like to end the season with a win, but as Jason Kidd keeps saying, it's about getting everyone healthy and rested so who knows.

Brooklyn wraps up the home schedule vs the Knicks


For the Knicks, this game means nothing other than bragging rights to the city ... but even if they win, the value of that won't last the weekend. They'll be packing up. For the Nets, a win wraps up the fifth seed and a trip (most likely) to Chicago.

The Magic comes to Brooklyn


Shaun Livingston and Alan Anderson will be out again and Jorge Gutierrez will play a lot filling in as the Nets begin the last week of the regular season vs. the Magic, who have beaten the Nets twice in three meetings, including last week.

The Hawks come to Brooklyn


The Nets have not lost in Brooklyn in more than two months ... 15 games, but Jason Kidd has hinted more players will get some rest Friday. For the Hawks, this is a must-win. A Hawk win and Knick loss would clinch a playoff spot.

Nets look to keep the winning streak going


The Nets have won three straight, four of their last five, six of their last seven. Their biggest challenge Wednesday vs. Orlando could be a letdown from the big win in Miami. We'll take it.

Nets go for season sweep of Heat


The Nets beat the Heat twice in preseason and three times in the regular season. It's something the Nets and Heat are well aware of. For Miami, the game may be more important than for Brooklyn. The Heat are fighting for the East's top seed.

The Month in Review - March 2014


Brian (The Machine) Fleurantin continues his monthly reviews, this time, it's all about the March to the playoffs. A 12-4 record, bolstered by a perfect month at Barclays Center, got the Nets into the playoffs for the second time in two years.

Brooklyn opens a road trip in Philly ... with KG?


In an oddity, the 76ers have done well against the Nets this season, despite their historic ineptitude. They actually beat the Nets back in December and hung with them in one of their two losses. The game could see Kevin Garnett's return.

Brooklyn tries to bounce back against Detroit


The Nets would like everyone to forget what happened at MSGn. The Piston would like everyone to forget this season. After an active off-season, the Pistons have disappointed on the court. But they're still a young, athletic squad that can surprise.

Knicks & Nets meet for a critical game at MSG


The Nets go for four in a now ... and 15th straight wins inside New York City limits ... Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden. As the Nets fight for the Atlantic Division lead, the Knicks are fighting for their playoff lives.

The Nets try to make history against Houston


The Nets haven't lost at home since the end of January, when the Thunder beat them. Now, at April dawns, the Nets are looking to win their fourteenth straight vs the Dwight Howard-less Rockets. It's also a chance to gain ground in the playoff race.

Nets look to push home winning streak to 13


The Timberwolves are fresh off a monster win over the Lakers Friday night scoring 143 points. The Nets haven't allowed an opponent to score 100 points in their last 11 home wins. The Nets have more to play for. They're in the playoffs. T-Wolves not.
