  • Knicks hold on to beat Nets after Porzingis leaves

    Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson asked before facing the Knicks if anyone knew how to stop Kristaps Porzingis. The Nets never really did, and they couldn't beat New York even after the star forward was injured. Courtney Lee scored 18 of his 27 points in the second half, Michael Beasley added 15, and the Knicks held on to beat the Nets 111-104 on Thursday night after Porzingis left the game due to a sore left knee early in the second half.

    No earthquakes or volcanos are on the back of the mind of the Brooklyn Nets players and coaches ahead of their regular-season game Thursday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Mexico City. The game will be the 25th in NBA history South of the Border, the most for any country besides the United States and Canada. "We talked about it and we talked about precautions with the NBA security on what we should do it happens", Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said.

  • The Nets are following the rest of the league toward position-less basketball

BROOKLYN — With D’Angelo Russell and Jeremy Lin in the back court and a wealth of forwards to be integrated up front, the Nets are attempting to usher in an era of position-less basketball. The formation of our offense changes depending on how we come up the court, so it’s important we have versatile players.

  • Why the Nets are hurt most by Marvin Bagley's decision to leave high school early

    Heralded high school basketball prospect Marvin Bagley made the decision to forego his senior year to join the Duke Blue Devils next season, vaulting the star forward into the cream of the crop of the 2018 NBA draft class. Bagley’s decision is one that fast tracks his journey to NBA stardom. It also simultaneously piles onto the Brooklyn Nets’ never-ending list of misfortunes. The Nets could have taken Bagley high in the 2019 NBA draft with their own pick. But now that he’s reclassified and left for Duke, he’ll likely be in the 2018 class, when Brooklyn’s pick belongs to the Celtics.

  • Report: Nets almost hired Bryan Colangelo as GM instead of Sean Marks

    When the Brooklyn Nets hired Sean Marks, it was a smart move and widely praised around the league. What the Nets needed was a culture shift and patience, someone who understood the art of finding talent deeper in the draft and developing it. Marks — with Kenny Atkinson as coach — was a very good fit for that (and ownership finally bought into a slower approach… not that they had much choice).
