  1. Stan Van Gundy: “I don’t think this is on Jason Kidd”

    Dec 5, 2013, 10:36 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    With the Nets off to a 5-13 start in the East, there is a lot of finger pointing going on. Losing does that. That includes fingers at first-year coach Jason Kidd, who recently demoted lead assistant Lawrence Frank to be basically the highest paid video coordinator in the NBA. The Nets offense has been isolation…

  2. The Extra Pass: Chemistry clicking in Denver as Nuggets beat Nets to win seventh straight, and Tuesday’s recaps

    Dec 4, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    brook lopez joe johnson kg

    NEW YORK — If it was a fight, they would have stopped it. To say the Nuggets beat the Nets on Tuesday to earn their seventh straight win wouldn’t at all be an accurate description of how Denver came out and destroyed Brooklyn in the third quarter, and then continued the assault against a depleted and…

  3. Another blow to Nets: Paul Pierce out 2-4 weeks with broken hand

    Dec 2, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    The Basketball Gods are treating the Brooklyn Nets like Odysseus. The already injury plagued 5-12 Brooklyn Nets will be without Paul Pierce for 2-4 weeks due to a broken third metacarpal bone in his right hand the team announced Monday. That is the bone that basically connects your middle finger to your wrist. The injury…

  4. Paul Pierce out Saturday against Grizzlies due to hand injury

    Nov 30, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    UPDATE 7:14 p.m.: Paul Pierce is now officially out Saturday against the Grizzlies. 3:30 p. m.: Injuries have been the story do far this season for the Brooklyn Nets, a team many expected to be legitimate contenders in the Eastern Conference. The latest one is to Paul Pierce, who isn’t expected to play when the…

  5. Jason Kidd admits he “probably” shouldn’t have spilled drink but was “trying to win”

    Nov 29, 2013, 8:45 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Los Angeles Clippers

    If you have a really clever idea to get your team a timeout at the end of a game — say for example having your player run into you so you spill your drink on the court — save it for a late season or playoff game when it matters, don’t waste it in November.…

  6. The Extra Pass: Nets believe they’re headed in the right direction, and Wednesday’s recaps

    Nov 28, 2013, 8:10 AM EDT

    joe johnson steve blake

    NEW YORK – The Nets fell to 4-11 on the season after an early blowout ended up becoming a heartbreaker before the final buzzer sounded. But the vibe around the team is good despite the rough start, because some of the key players believe that the recent effort shown has the beginnings of trending things…

  7. With game in balance, Jason Kidd tells player to “hit me,” spills drink, gets psuedo timeout to draw up play

    Nov 28, 2013, 12:19 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Charlotte Bobcats

    This is very clever by Nets coach Jason Kidd. Oh, he’s going to get a healthy fine from the league for this, but it was clever. The Nets were down two with 8.3 seconds left in the game and the Lakers’ Jodie Meeks was on the free throw line. The Nets were going to get…

  8. That is one relieved Jason Kidd after Nets win (VIDEO)

    Nov 27, 2013, 8:44 AM EDT

    Jason Kidd

    Brooklyn did their best to choke away a win Tuesday. Toronto went on a 14-0 run in the final minutes to get it within two (after the Nets did not play the free throw game well), and they had a shot at tying it. (Go read our nightly NBA Grades to see what I thought…

  9. With Kobe staying as highest-paid player in NBA, the Lakers can rebuild but it’s not easy

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant has signed a contract extension and is staying on with the Lakers for two more seasons. That news made Lakers nation happy — go to a Lakers game and you see the flood of 24 jerseys in the crowd — you quickly realize why the Lakers could not let him go at any…

  10. Kevin Garnett does not hear you calling him old (VIDEO)

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:22 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    If these new noise cancelling Beats by Dre headphones really can help you tune out Skip Bayless I may shell out for a pair. This new ad for the headphones features Kevin Garnett tuning out his critics (be careful, a little NSFW language in there). You need to suspend your belief in reality for this…

  11. Lakers sign Kobe Bryant to two-year, $48.5 million contract extension

    Nov 25, 2013, 12:01 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant is going to finish his career a Los Angeles Laker — 20 seasons with the same team. That would be the longest single-team tenure in NBA history. Monday morning the Lakers announced that Bryant — who has yet to play this season as he recovers from a ruptured Achilles tendon — has signed…

  12. Kevin Garnett on Nets: “I think everybody here is embarrassed”

    Nov 25, 2013, 10:22 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Brooklyn Nets

    Frustration bubbling to the surface in the Nets locker room is understandable — after five straight losses and falling to 3-10 on the season Sunday with a loss to the Pistons I’d be more worried if they weren’t a little angry. Brooklyn has one of the worst defenses in the NBA so far this season…

  13. Report: Nets’ coach Jason Kidd has backing of management

    Nov 25, 2013, 1:24 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    The Brooklyn Nets are a hot mess. They have key injuries (Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Andrei Kirilenko, Jason Terry), they have an offense that devolves into isolation plays that are easy to defend, and they have a defense that is without cohesion (especially when Brook Lopez is out). They have lost five in a…

  14. Nets players stick up for coach, say Jason Kidd not the problem

    Nov 20, 2013, 12:02 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Washington Wizards

    There is not one problem with the Brooklyn Nets this season, there are many — injuries, Kevin Garnett looking his age, an offense that devolves quickly into isolations. However, in the NBA where star players are at a premium and everyone has guaranteed contracts, it is coaches who shoulder the blame. That has already started…

  15. The Extra Pass: King of the Hill and Monday’s recaps

    Nov 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Phoenix Suns

    Everyone has their spot. A guy like Charlotte Bobcats center Al Jefferson, for example, has gone to his spot with such frequency over the years that he’s  been deemed the “mayor of the left block.” No matter the opponent or teammates, you know where to find him on a nightly basis. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t all…

  16. Monday night NBA grades: A tale of two Brooklyn halves

    Nov 19, 2013, 1:37 AM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Brooklyn Nets

    Our grades for what happened around the NBA Sunday, or what you missed while watching Jean-Claude Van Damme do the splits between two moving trucks… Brooklyn Nets first quarter offense. With all that talent on the roster we expected some big nights from Brooklyn and it looked like we would finally get one (even if…

  17. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  18. Report: Knicks covet Rajon Rondo, made laughable offer to Boston

    Nov 17, 2013, 10:31 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    It is possible Danny Ainge will trade Rajon Rondo — he seriously talked offers for him when they had Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, you think he won’t consider it now that they are rebuilding? But he’s not giving Rondo away for the spare change in the couch. Which brings us to this note about…

  19. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett didn’t come to the arena for Nets’ loss to Clippers

    Nov 17, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Newly acquired Net's NBA players attend a news conference introducing them to the media in Brooklyn

    Most of the time in the NBA, if a team’s star players are going to miss a game due to injury, they will still accompany their teammates to the arena and either receive treatment in the locker room while the game is going on, or wear a suit and represent on the sidelines. Paul Pierce…

  20. Deron Williams, Paul Pierce, Brook Lopez will all miss Saturday’s game at Clippers due to injury

    Nov 16, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Deron Williams Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett

    The Nets got their first road win of the season in spectacular fashion on Friday, getting a game-winner from Joe Johnson at the overtime buzzer to beat the Suns in Phoenix. The victory was a costly one, however, as Brooklyn will be extremely shorthanded when the team faces the Clippers in Los Angeles on Saturday.…

  21. Joe Johnson hits the overtime game-winner to send Nets past Suns (VIDEO)

    joe johnson nets

    PHOENIX – Joe Johnson‘s game-winning layup as the overtime buzzer sounded gave the Nets their first road win of the season, a hard-fought 100-98 victory that came without the team’s starting point guard, Deron Williams. Williams was lost early in the first quarter to a sprained left ankle, but the play of Shaun Livingston, along…

  22. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  23. Jason Terry says Nets need to play “desperate.” That and they need a better offense.

    Nov 14, 2013, 3:01 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets Deron Williams Paul Pierce Kevin Garnett

    The Brooklyn Nets got manhandled by the Sacramento Kings Wednesday night. The Kings came in with a struggling offense yet put up 107 points on the Nets “defense,” while on the other end of the floor the Nets offense was stagnant and without ball movement, generating 86 points. The Brooklyn Nets are 2-5 and have…

  24. The Extra Pass: The All-Mesh Team and Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 13, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    While the Golden State Warriors were giving the Detroit Pistons the proverbial business on Tuesday night, the Warriors’ announcing crew fawned over Andre Iguodala before asking, “who wouldn’t want to play with this guy?” It was a rhetorical question, of course, but I tried to answer it anyway. For the life of me, I couldn’t…

  25. Pacers’ Lance Stephenson given pathetic taunting technical (VIDEO)

    Nov 12, 2013, 10:05 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Indiana Pacers - Game Six

    Really? Lance Stephenson has really stepped up his game this season and Monday night put up a triple-double (13 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds) with Tony Allen covering him a chunk of the night. That Memphis chose to stick arguably the best perimeter defender in the NBA on him speaks to how well Stephenson is…
