The Nets since getting Harden:
Roll through almost the entire league
Lose 3x to the Cavs + Wizards

Lose to the Cavs after the Nets give them their best defender.

that sequence was disgusting. Clippers should have capitalized when KD and irving was on the bench at the start of the 4th quarter but couldn't

At one point I felt bad for Kawhi when PG was on the bench and he was facing those three superstars.

We shouldnt be playing small lineup when Nets struggle to rebound. Ibaka should have played in 4th qrt.
[–]jiral_toki 11 指標 1小時前
Small ball is the worst offense you can have against the nets. I dont know why more coaches dont understand this by now. Although I gotta say the nets played much better def tonight.
[–]Nets jetopia 113 指標 1小時前
I think Harden is unleashed more when KD and Kyrie actually goes to the bench. He becomes the main playmaker when all 3 are in.

Clippers have PG and Kawhi on defense which is about as good as you can possibly get in terms of wing defenders and that still leaves one of the nets big 3 with a big mismatch to capitalize on

And they have so many phenomenal FT shooters. Intentionally fouling them doesn’t mean much.
[–]NotManyBuses 147 指標 2小時前
Even in the death line up Warriors, you could somewhat predict them offensively. I genuinely think this team surpasses any prior in sheer offensive talent. Harden, KD, and Kyrie can score on legitimately any coverage and from anywhere, it's unbelievable.
[–][SAC]Kevin Martin km912 129 指標 2小時前
The real tough part is you can’t double team any of them. If one of them starts cooking like Kyrie did, there’s nothing you can do to stop it. And it’s basically a guarantee one of these will get cooking at least every game.
[–]Nets aydee123 64 指標 1小時前
Plus there's Joe Harris, and he's not even just a catch and shoot guy, he can put the ball on the floor and finish at the rim pretty well too.
[–]thelastfirebndr 47 指標 1小時前
They’ll probably not be cooking every single game but I don’t see anyone beating them 4/7… sure the opponents will win some games but not four games… unless Colin Sexton is playing (or maybe the lakers lol)… otherwise, no.

KD has been game-breakingly good and is having a prime season off an Achilles tear. That's never happened before.

The Nets might have to live this season like the Keenu Reeves movie “Speed” where they can’t ever slow down or they’ll explode. Like the defense is never going to happen so they have to play insane out of control games every single night and that’s the only way they can win and stay alive.

True. Especially when Kyrie isn't a durable player and KD is coming off a major injury. We fans just hope they can stay healthy. NBA is more fun to watch when the best guys play
[–]Kings CrossXhunteR 92 指標 1小時前
The broadcast mentioned that Kyrie, Harden, and KD were all playing lots of minutes in the games that they did play in, but with them all frequently sitting a game out here and there (note: I don't know if this is actually true, I just heard them say it) it drastically pulled their total usage down. Seems like a balancing act that they will try to ride out as long as they can.

I’m terms of scoring, he’s got the ultimate green light. KD is playing the gunner role, while Harden is the floor general. They have a very interesting dynamic.

[–]Supersonics R9_is_never_coming 29 指標 2小時前
The fact his TS is so high despite not going to the line that much speaks to his elite shotmaking. If he could learn some foul drawing tactics from Harden, his efficiency would be insane (not that it's not right now).

It's hilarious how the two superteams KD has been apart of are polar opposites of each other on offense. Both have incredible offenses but the warriors were all about ball movement while the nets are all about iso

The Nets aren't ALL about iso. We iso in the 4th quarter absolutely, but we run the 7 seconds or less offense early in the games. Mike Dan Tony's DNA is all over this team.
[–]Nets aydee123 5 指標 2小時前
Defense was actually not bad.
By my count the Clippers had 113 possessions and scored 120 points.
That's a Defensive Rating of 106.2, which would actually rank 3rd in the league (Memphis is second at 106.1). The Clippers had a TS% of 56.3, which would rank 18th in the league.
Obviously the Nets won't be that good on defense all the time…but it really goes to show what barely playing DeAndre can do.
He's out of position on basically every single defensive possession and isn't able to recover at all. This leads to so many open shots.
[–]Tampa Bay Raptors MolicOnePGR 10 指標 2小時前
They’re definitely gonna test the theory that you can’t win without a top 10 defence.
