2013 Nets Playoffs
The 2013 Brooklyn Nets NBA Playoffs group.
If there's any place where the Nets seem set, it's center/power forward, where the Nets have four bigs. So this sounds like a long shot at best, but Timofey Mozgov tells Izvestia, the Russian newspaper, that he'd be happy to play in Brooklyn.
In talking to Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco about Miami's inability to deal with big men and his predictions for the NBA's final four, Charles Barkley expressed regret that he had projected the Nets as an Eastern Conference finalist this year.
It should come as no surprise that the Nets and other NBA teams give local products a chance at Draft Time. Josh Newman reports Harlem native and Iona product Lamont "MoMo" Jones, a 6'0" combo guard, will be included in individual workout June 20.
The Knicks go into Game 6 vs. the Pacers Saturday night down 3-2. And, writes Tim Bontemps, they have yet to figure out Indiana. Bontemps offers a summary of how the Nets beat the Pacers so handily, particularly at Bankers Life Field House.
It's the latest criticism of the Nets, that they aren't emotional enough to win. Marv Albert criticized them during Game 6 for their "sense of urgency" and Charles Barkley said, they "don’t play with a lot of passion ... they just play on talent."
John Schuhmann doesn't delve much into deep stats, his specialty, but instead takes an analytical look at how the Nets positives and negatives will be examined in the harsh light of a Game 7.
It wasn't easy -- or as easy as it should have been -- but the Nets were able to pull off Game 6 on the road and force a Game 7. Both teams were banged up, but the Bulls were without a few of their key players. Still, nothing is easy in Chicago.
Nate Robinson says that he doesn't like C.J. Watson and acknowledges that Watson doesn't very much care for him. According to Robinson, he is using his hatred for Watson as motivation to play better against the Nets in this first round series.
