SPIEL TIMES HOT TAKE ON THE NETS WIN
- The Nets’ offensive firepower is unstoppable (with KD, Curry, and Drummond on the floor)
- Brooklyn was outrebounding the opposing team (Blazers)
- They were shooting lights out from three (40.0%)
- Great ball movement. They had great looks for easy baskets in the paint (for Drummond and Claxton)
- Bruce Brown was a huge part of the Nets’ victory. He was confident and was everywhere on the court (scoring, picking pockets, rebounding)
The Bad and the Ugly:
- They were outhustled by the Blazers in defense. The Nets posted 21 turnovers that game, which does not look good.
- Brooklyn Nets lack a go-to guy for perimeter defense. As good as Curry and Dragic are, they are sometimes defensive liabilities.
- They almost lost to a Blazers team without Damian Lillard, Anfernee Simmons, and Jusuf Nurkic, three of their best players.
It was a very close game, and the Blazers could have won this game. But, kudos to the Nets for rallying in the offense after being down by more than 20 points. Either way, a win is a win. Nets are now on the 8th seed in the East (37-34) after this win.
