THE STORY: Game Preview

Well, wasn’t that fun? The Nets went to our nation’s capital Friday night in between home games and swallowed the Wizards whole. John Wall and Bradley Beal disappeared in the great maw that was D’Angelo Russell and Spencer Dinwiddie. The two scored a combined 48 points, shooting 18-of-29 (Thats’ 62.1 percent) while also going to the line 17 times, handing out 14 assists (to only five turnovers) and tallying five steals.

Now that that’s done, let’s move on to Coogi Night in Brooklyn!

The Nets are playing host to the surprisingly fun Clippers Saturday night on the second half of the back-to-back. Los Angeles is 9-5 and has finally moved on from the Lob City era after letting DeAndre Jordan leave for the Mavericks this summer. They serve as something of an inspiration for the Nets, at least in my opinion. A bunch of guys who fit together nicely and play hard for the team. They’ll be tough to beat, especially coming off of a back-to-back, but maybe Brooklyn gets a little morale boost from their City Edition jerseys and court. Very cool.

Let’s get into it.
