Brooklyn Nets win "breakthrough" or "meaningless"

Anthony Gruppuso-US PRESSWIRE

The Nets have won four straight for the first time since late in the 2010-11 season, which is also the last time they beat the Celtics. Was it a "breakthrough" game or "meaningless." We report, you decide.

Three weeks into the NBA season, the Nets are second in the East, behind only the surprising Knicks and tied with the even more surprising Bucks. At 5-2, they have won four straight for the first time since late in the 2010-11 season. They beat a Celtics team without Rajon Rondo, but had one of their own, Gerald Wallace, down.

The late offerings on the game fell into two categories: 1) the win is significant for the Brooklyn Nets, or 2) it's meaningless because the Nets are the Nets and not the Knicks.

Beckley Mason, writing for the New York Times, probably put it best. He notes that breakthrough or not, the Nets would like to emulate the Celtics (not the Knicks), pointing out the similarities between the lettering on the Nets' black-and-whites and that of the Celtics green-and-whites.
