The Brooklyn Nets will be playing to stay alive against the Miami Heat in Game 5 tonight. The Heat are -7 point favorites over the Nets with an over/under point total set at 186. With Miami coming off their first loss of the playoffs, LeBron James knew he needed to take on even more of the scoring load for his team so he decided to pour in 49 points on 16 of 24 shooting. Dwyane Wade had 15 points while Chris Bosh added 12, but this night was all about James and his ability get to the paint where he either scored or got to the charity stripe. Defensively, the Heat made an extra effort to sprint out to the Nets’ three-point shooters and it paid off big, as the Nets shot just 5 for 22 after shooting 15 of 25 in Game 3. Speaking of the Nets, Joe Johnson Read More

The Toronto Raptors and the Brooklyn Nets face off in a dramatic Game 7 at the Barclays Center today. The Raptors are -3 point favorites over the Nets with an over/under point total set at 189.5. Following the trend of the playoffs this season, the Nets and the Raptors suit up for a Game 7 finale. Deron Williams led the way with 23 points and Joe Johnson had 17 as the Nets busted out of the gates early and kept their foot on the gas till late in the game. It was good to see significant contributions across the board on the offense end, but I’m more impressed with the defense that held the Raptors to just 38.5 percent shooting and just 59 points through three quarters before easing off in the fourth. The game didn’t come without its scares though as the Nets had their hearts in their mouths Read More

The Nets have lost three of their last five and are coming off their biggest loss of the season, a 124-80 beatdown at the hands of the Trailblazers. In a completely listless performance, the Nets came out with no energy and simply got blown off the court, falling behind by 58-34 heading into halftime before allowing another 42 points in the fourth quarter. Perhaps the Nets are fatigued because that was their fifth game in their seven-game road trip, but they did get a couple nights of rest after their win against the Lakers on Sunday so they can’t use that excuse.
