What Grizzlies game? As far as I’m concerned, the last time the Nets played was when they miraculously came back to beat the Celtics on the road. The Caris LeVert game. Nothing since then, right?

Right.

Brooklyn welcomes the San Antonio Spurs to town on Friday night - yes, just two nights after the Grizzlies embarrassed them at home, whatever. But, Friday is different. It’s Dr. J night.

That’s pretty cool, at least.

WHO: Brooklyn Nets (27-34) vs. San Antonio Spurs (26-34)

WHEN: 7:30 PM EST

WHERE: YES Network (tv), WFAN (radio), Barclays Center (live)

Game Preview

The Spurs are trying for a record 23rd straight seasons in the NBA playoffs, but as now, it’s looking unlikely. They are four games back of eighth place Memphis, three in the loss column, with 22 games to go.

San Antonio has been off since Tuesday night when they outlasted the Hornets in Charlotte, 104-103.

Charlotte scored 36 points in the opening frame and led by as many as 17 when the Spurs started to gain momentum, knocking down 6-of-12 threes with 10 assists and four steals in the second quarter alone. San Antonio went up by four, 104-100, with 1:28 remaining when Hornets Terry Rozier made the final layup to bring the game within one point. Dejounte Murry scored a game-high 21 points on 9-of-14 shooting and matched his career-high 3 three-pointers, along with 6 assists, 5 rebounds and 2 steals. In a complete team effort, six players scored in double figures.

Sounds like Spurs basketball to us!
