GAME THREAD: Boston Celtics (0-0) @ Brooklyn Nets (0-0) - (May 22, 2021)
By - NBA_MOD
Can anyone explain to me how you overturn an offensive foul into that garbage tonight? Because that was disgusting. Just when I started to get into sports again the refs pull this... that’s so offensive and stupid.
How can the nets not be the favorites this year
The Brooklyn Nets, formerly known as the New Jersey Nets, won a game of basketball tonight, and that makes me happy.
can't be upset with the defensive effort all things considered but that 17-3 run at the end lmao... Kemba and Jayson couldn't hit a shot. A half-injured Timelord was our best player in the 4th. GG nets
Durant seems in a talkative mood today
Doris Burke is so overrated.
Good no call
She’s terrible when announcing big market teams, she’s always just sucking them off
You know I am an underdog you know
Lisa Loeb is my forever freshman year girlfriend
Can we talk about time lord nearly getting a triple double with BLOCKS??? One rebound and one block short.
He’s an absolute beast imo.
If the Celtics roll with Williams, tatum, brown, smart, kemba and Fournier+Pritchard+nesmith off the bench I think they are contenders next year assuming good health.
This sub is really low on them but as tatum continues to develop, that’s a championship roster around him.
The only times the Celtics looked good in the second half was with Rob on the floor. I really hope he gets his hip right for next year, he is a game changer for this team. Get him healthy, get Brown back, replace Kemba and this team is going to be good for a long time
Feels good. 15 more to go.
“Why you always in a mood”
He’s pretty close already
Fuck is going on on ESPN? Ain't blazers on rn? What's this bs boxing fight
I love that camera shot of Kevin Durant just chillin next to the basket lol
nets fans be cringe af all game... all of em congratulating the "big 3" at the end as if they're the underdogs
Who do you think Durant will team up with in 2 more years?
Tatum and Lebron in LA
r/NBA, gonna need a "you know" count on this one
I went to the nets vs lakers game in april in brooklyn and the middle section of the arena seats were 700 dollars each for me and my gf. The people you see are the only ones that could afford those kinds of seats
Wow, what a huge waste of money.
Man this Nets trio would so much fun if they were on the Knicks instead.
Yeah but I love my team. The only one I would've *really* wanted to have is Harden because he's generally durable and his impact on winning is so huge. And I love him as a player.
“Gentrified? What do you mean gentrified????? I’m a Brooklyn OG!!! I’ve been living here FOR MONTHS in my apartment that my rich dad paid for since I didn’t want to commute to work in Manhattan from Jersey anymore!
By the way, anyone else want Shake Shack? I’m gonna put in a DoorDash order!”
DAMN Lisa Salters got a wagon back there
Boston gotta look at their 2nd half offense and fix things. You can't be forcing off-balance layups that don't even hit the rim and expect to keep pace w/ the Nets.
the amount of people salty on this thread is fucking hilarious
Knicks and Celtics which I get, but also for some reason Lakers and Warriors fans..
They really hate us
I am cracking up
Full crowd??? Wow
what happened to Doris. I feel like she used to be decent but this was a BRUTAL call all game
Once espn caught up social media liking her they made her the narrative mouthpiece a few years ago
She's the mom that tries too hard to act cool around your friends, and all you can do is cringe.
I’m assuming you’ve never seen her call a game with LeBron? Lol. Did you know LeBron has never committed a foul in his entire career?
She hates harden and loves embiid.
As much as I want Brooklyn to be bounced in the first or second round, it would be amazing to see harden draw a foul on embiid because she would probably drop the gamer word
Myers Leonard has entered the chat
"KD, 'thotslayer69' on IG said you were a trash ass bitch, thoughts?"
How many you knows?
Can we flashforward to Nets Bucks pls.
Bucks gotta get past the Heat first
No please let the Bucks and Heat battle it out to 7 games. >:)
Nets fans are the new warriors fans.
Literally just saw one switch their flair
Real talk how do I get a flair
Not sure what you use Reddit on, but from desktop, there is a small button in the sidebar that says “set flair”
Already see it too. Nice
Kevin Durant looking like a stay away order interview
fuck the nets
KD can’t wait to log on to Twitter
KD is trying to say "You know" more than Ja
Lol kd doing the slim reaper outfit
Can I be a nets fan in Virginia
No NBA team in Virginia. I'll allow it.
You don't say Pop without the Smoke.
Sure why not. But that handle makes no sense for that.
Jersey born Nets fan that moved to VA a few months ago checking in- yes! Welcome
Let's go Nets!
I just don’t see this Nets team getting past Sixers or Bucks.
What if they add Giannis and Embiid?
yeah its the 76ers year IMO
well be ready to see it
Hey man if I’m wrong I’m wrong, but Net’s will be the most scouted team this playoffs and defense will only get harder. Bucks and Sixers are both much better both ends than the Celtics
Lmao they have embiid bro he’ll clap all the big men y’all got
and we got kd, harden, and kyrie. i like our chances
I wouldn’t trust kyries production consistently but harden and KD for sure
let williams get one more block...
Decent opening gambit. Still have high hopes for a very competitive series.
Last buckets of the game were free throws by James Harden. Poetry
2 great games and now this lol
Let’s hope the next one is good again
Was the game not good? It was tight most of the way
Some people just watch box scores
I want an emergency pod with Simmons House-O and Turtledick or whatever the fuck their names are after Kyrie beats this Celtics team
Don't forget Portnoy.
Kemba and Tatum have to shoot more efficiently to win a game in this series. Going 11-36 is unacceptable. They’re shooting their team out of games
big, if true
Lmao this thread got mad toxic outta nowhere
Is covid still a thing in us? The audiences seem chill without face mask is quite fascinating lol
It's 93% vaccinated in that crowd
Wow that’s fantastic. Wish my country is that efficient
well we have by far the most vaccines distributed
Is the arena full?
Nets IG claimed sold out today, but with how much advertising they did even this morning, doubt it.
Well they had 14k I was informed
That's great, I was worried I'd have to hear friends give me grief about it.
They don't want more people ?
My friends aren’t Nets fans.
Oh I see
Just under 15k. About 75%
14,000 they said
The Nets were up by 3 and went up by 17 in like 2.5 minutes.
It seems like every star player played like shit or way below their norm today
New york fans really unmatched.
Unremarkable game by the Nets, and they win by 11. Oof, this will not end well for the league
What? I saw a team that can be exposed. Boston had no offensive production period.
Nets aren’t impressive
why are knicks fans relentlessly hating on the nets rn. is it insecurity? jealously? like what lmao
It’s insecurity. They’ll claim nobody cares about the Nets yet they can’t stop hating.
We’re local rivals. What are we supposed to do. Have a nice time about it?
dismissiveness is funny, when both teams were good in 2012-13ish people werent so assholey (guess cuz nets were 4th seed vs knicks 3rd or second)
Granted we were still in Jersey but I don’t even remember this animosity when we swept the Knicks in the Kidd days.
they didnt have hope then? only repressed dingusberries waiting to be unleashed or smtg
I mean y’all barely beat an injured Celtics team. It’s all boring iso with y’all. Nothing special. Bucks can beat y’all. Heck even the 76ers can beat y’all
Knicks won by 4 versus this same Celtics team minus 4 starters FYI
I don’t expect the Knicks too Beat the top 3 teams. There’s a big difference with the Nets and Knicks. Come on now bro. U gotta know this.
Bucks lost to the Celtics 2 times and barely won once.
I don’t watch sixers so idk how they play.
the lakers barley beat a warriors team that’s not even in the playoffs rn. does that mean they’re not impressive? that is some childish reasoning. do better man lmao
Bro Curry went off. Curry had like 36. Tatum and Kemba were both off yet it was a close game. That’s the difference.
the nets had an off shooting game and still won by double digits. if you are actually an nba fan you should know every game won’t be a blowout even if one team is substantially better than the other. just worry about the knicks respectfully
I’m sorry but the Nets aren’t a superteam. They are still very beatable. Wouldn’t be shocked if the Bucks and 76ers beat em.
I still like the sixers to come out of the east, that ECF matchup is gonna be pretty fun though
Could have been a decent game/series with Brown, idk!
I hope Celtics players hug Kyrie after every game just to trigger Bill Simmons
I think we all want this
Damn I missed crowds
Man I really hate this Nets team bros! They just feel fake and have so many unlikeable players unlike the Classy™, Gym Rat™, Reddit Approved™, Real™, Grit and Grind™, Low Post Offense™ New York Knicks. Who have the best Knicks Bros who actually care about the game of basketball.
Once again the one who takes the Hardest Road gets the most reward
This series looked close for a half....and the Celtics haven't even been playing THAT bad. Nets firepower is just insane
Nah we played pretty fucking bad in the 2nd half lmao.
well brad, they scored 105 but you scored 93...probably should go back to the drawing board to get 106
That Brooklyn chant is probably the worst home team chant, it sounds like they are mocking their own team
They’ve only been following the team for six months, give them some time
Enjoy the L
It sounds like the Warriors chant
Can't wait for Kyrie to get booed
Maybe he'll get scared again and be out for "personal reasons"
Throwaway account, don't care
lol dogshit team 1 championship last 40 years
throwaway account, don't care
0-4 last 4 ECF finals lmao Tatum sorry asf too give me Ben Simmons over Tatum
Ben Simmons has never even touched the ECF let alone sniffed it. The fuck are you on about? Lmao
I will gladly keep Tatum over Simmons, so sure
In before a Knicks fan comes in here trashing the Nets for having cheaper tickets than them 😂
The real victory lmao
Nets have cheaper tickets than us 🤣🤣
If you guys are really still hungry for more Kyrie for some reason Uncle Drew is on TNT
They know what they doing.
i'll wait until i see him in space jam 2
Get TimeLord some HALP!!!
Who did these people root for 10 years ago?
Hey well I suppose it’s better than Kevin Durant, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green teaming up to destroy everyone? Lol.
Lol little kid doesn’t know his team did the same shit 13 years ago
Stfu weird ass kid nets traded for harden too know your shit before you talk
They chant Brooklyn but what I hear is long island
noooooooo they took timelord off
I’m digging Kyrie’s fro look
Glad to see fans back
Kemba is so hopeless. I feel bad for C's somewhat, they got scammed big time
Karma for Isaiah Thomas
Crazy how it’s weird to see fans now
People say Nets only got good when stars signed here. Let’s not forget they went to the playoffs being led by Dlo before KD signed there.
yeah, they were at least on par with the Magic the past few years
And immediately blew it up after a first round exit.
Yeah Dlo wasn’t leading them to a title what he did was give the Nets some relevancy. KD can
I don’t blame them. They got the chance to sign 2 better players that will automatically make them contenders
