There isn’t much to say about last night’s game other than the Nets — literally — did not look like an NBA team. The Wolves played fine, but were hardly at their best, yet still led by 16 after 1, 20 after 2, and 32 after 3. Nobody aside from maybe Corey Brewer had a hot night by their standards. Ricky made 2 of 3 from downtown, and that is great to see, but the game had a major front-running feel to it where there wasn’t a worry in the world when anybody’s shot went up.
I don’t want to waste my time or yours with too much detail about a game where one team didn’t show up to play. The Nets better hope that the returns of Deron Williams and Brook Lopez have a dramatic effect. Jason Kidd’s job might be in jeopardy just one month into his coaching career.
Some scary injury news around the league. I haven’t had a chance to read the stories — and I think the MRIs and whatnot have yet to come back with definitive results — but it sounds like the NBA might be once again without Derrick Rose. Marc Gasol and Andre Iguodala might be out, too. More to come on all this when we have better information.
Always good to get a win, even when the opponent isn’t ready to play.
