Treedom_Lighter

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.


aussiefrzz16

How can the nets not be the favorites this year


FlowersForBergeron

The Brooklyn Nets, formerly known as the New Jersey Nets, won a game of basketball tonight, and that makes me happy.


ayksun

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


254juju

Durant seems in a talkative mood today


schizophrenix_

Doris Burke is so overrated.


BMBA24

Good no call


yodeadassb

She’s terrible when announcing big market teams, she’s always just sucking them off

You know I am an underdog you know


ReturnOfDaSnack420

Lisa Loeb is my forever freshman year girlfriend


canned-bread-430

Can we talk about time lord nearly getting a triple double with BLOCKS??? One rebound and one block short.


BMBA24

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.


jwd2213

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


JTNJ32

Feels good. 15 more to go.

Who do you think Durant will team up with in 2 more years?

r/NBA, gonna need a "you know" count on this one


KUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUZ

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


MikeVixDawgPound

Wow, what a huge waste of money.


theummeower

Man this Nets trio would so much fun if they were on the Knicks instead.


MyLadySansa

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.


ragamuphin

MyLadySansa

Lmaoooooooooo


jwill09

DAMN Lisa Salters got a wagon back there


Hypertumor

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.


Daconviss

the amount of people salty on this thread is fucking hilarious


Gomezaki

Knicks and Celtics which I get, but also for some reason Lakers and Warriors fans..


maxjk

They really hate us


parisjava

I am cracking up


BabyRage12

Full crowd??? Wow


vroom18

what happened to Doris. I feel like she used to be decent but this was a BRUTAL call all game


b1droid

Once espn caught up social media liking her they made her the narrative mouthpiece a few years ago


JayDeeLA

She's the mom that tries too hard to act cool around your friends, and all you can do is cringe.


wryan4

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?


BMBA24

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


clinically__retarded

Myers Leonard has entered the chat

"KD, 'thotslayer69' on IG said you were a trash ass bitch, thoughts?"

How many you knows?


lulu314

Can we flashforward to Nets Bucks pls.


devilsadvocateMD

Bucks gotta get past the Heat first


nochancepak

No please let the Bucks and Heat battle it out to 7 games. >:)


Student_Ok

Nets fans are the new warriors fans.


otiso_niloc

Literally just saw one switch their flair


TheBuggaBOO55

Real talk how do I get a flair


otiso_niloc

Not sure what you use Reddit on, but from desktop, there is a small button in the sidebar that says “set flair”


TheBuggaBOO55

Thank u


otiso_niloc

Already see it too. Nice

No NBA team in Virginia. I'll allow it.

woooooo

Sure why not. But that handle makes no sense for that.


jimmyhota

Jersey born Nets fan that moved to VA a few months ago checking in- yes! Welcome


lwgSuperkick

Let's go Nets!


boenwip

I just don’t see this Nets team getting past Sixers or Bucks.


rounder55

What if they add Giannis and Embiid?


syllabic

yeah its the 76ers year IMO


Daconviss

well be ready to see it


boenwip

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


iamgronkulus

Lmao they have embiid bro he’ll clap all the big men y’all got


Daconviss

and we got kd, harden, and kyrie. i like our chances


iamgronkulus

I wouldn’t trust kyries production consistently but harden and KD for sure


bodega_cat_

let williams get one more block...


ItsYaBoyBeasley

Decent opening gambit. Still have high hopes for a very competitive series.


angryWitness

Last buckets of the game were free throws by James Harden. Poetry


copingthroughlife

2 great games and now this lol Let’s hope the next one is good again


iamgronkulus

Was the game not good? It was tight most of the way


b1droid

Some people just watch box scores


ReturnOfDaSnack420

I want an emergency pod with Simmons House-O and Turtledick or whatever the fuck their names are after Kyrie beats this Celtics team


JayDeeLA

Don't forget Portnoy.


ndwg25

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


RoundCalligrapher

big, if true


drinkgeezyjuice

Lmao this thread got mad toxic outta nowhere


IUViolet

Is covid still a thing in us? The audiences seem chill without face mask is quite fascinating lol


ihatethesidebar

It's 93% vaccinated in that crowd


IUViolet

Wow that’s fantastic. Wish my country is that efficient


syllabic

well we have by far the most vaccines distributed


indian_hannibal

Is the arena full?


Gomezaki

Nets IG claimed sold out today, but with how much advertising they did even this morning, doubt it.


indian_hannibal

Well they had 14k I was informed


Gomezaki

That's great, I was worried I'd have to hear friends give me grief about it.


indian_hannibal

They don't want more people ?


Gomezaki

My friends aren’t Nets fans.


indian_hannibal

Oh I see


otiso_niloc

Just under 15k. About 75%


indian_hannibal

Oh ok


PinwheelsAndUnicorns

14,000 they said


indian_hannibal

Oic


anuhobo

The Nets were up by 3 and went up by 17 in like 2.5 minutes.


welmoe

Tatum 6/20 Kemba 4/16 Fournier 3/10 Yikes


xxapplej4ckx

It seems like every star player played like shit or way below their norm today


Adam8886

besides kyrie


xgoatgoatgoatx

Yikes


DrunkSpaceGrandpa

New york fans really unmatched.


BrallyTX

Unremarkable game by the Nets, and they win by 11. Oof, this will not end well for the league


[deleted]

What? I saw a team that can be exposed. Boston had no offensive production period.


bfhdjdj

Nets aren’t impressive


Daconviss

why are knicks fans relentlessly hating on the nets rn. is it insecurity? jealously? like what lmao


djl8699

It’s insecurity. They’ll claim nobody cares about the Nets yet they can’t stop hating.


anotherjoshpark

We’re local rivals. What are we supposed to do. Have a nice time about it?


ragamuphin

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)


rwc202

Granted we were still in Jersey but I don’t even remember this animosity when we swept the Knicks in the Kidd days.


ragamuphin

they didnt have hope then? only repressed dingusberries waiting to be unleashed or smtg


bfhdjdj

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


BMBA24

Knicks won by 4 versus this same Celtics team minus 4 starters FYI


bfhdjdj

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.


BMBA24

Bucks lost to the Celtics 2 times and barely won once. I don’t watch sixers so idk how they play.


Daconviss

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


bfhdjdj

Bro Curry went off. Curry had like 36. Tatum and Kemba were both off yet it was a close game. That’s the difference.


Daconviss

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


bfhdjdj

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.


syllabic

I still like the sixers to come out of the east, that ECF matchup is gonna be pretty fun though


Annabond

Could have been a decent game/series with Brown, idk!


JokicOrBust

I hope Celtics players hug Kyrie after every game just to trigger Bill Simmons


ReturnOfDaSnack420

I think we all want this


Jeffert89

Damn I missed crowds


PRIMETIMEBOXER

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.


ReturnOfDaSnack420

Once again the one who takes the Hardest Road gets the most reward


iiBerserkGamingii

This series looked close for a half....and the Celtics haven't even been playing THAT bad. Nets firepower is just insane


Brovenkar

Nah we played pretty fucking bad in the 2nd half lmao.


refballislife

well brad, they scored 105 but you scored 93...probably should go back to the drawing board to get 106


mans1ayer

That Brooklyn chant is probably the worst home team chant, it sounds like they are mocking their own team


DressedSpring1

They’ve only been following the team for six months, give them some time


robb4217

0-4 last 4 ECF finals lmao Tatum sorry asf too give me Ben Simmons over Tatum


WildReaper29

Ben Simmons has never even touched the ECF let alone sniffed it. The fuck are you on about? Lmao


Brady331

I will gladly keep Tatum over Simmons, so sure


[deleted]

In before a Knicks fan comes in here trashing the Nets for having cheaper tickets than them 😂


maxjk

The real victory lmao


Asking4Afren

Nets have cheaper tickets than us 🤣🤣

ExMachina_Disco_Club

Karma for Isaiah Thomas


RiggyTang

Crazy how it’s weird to see fans now


shadow_spinner0

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.


td4999

yeah, they were at least on par with the Magic the past few years


chezcola

And immediately blew it up after a first round exit.


shadow_spinner0

Yeah Dlo wasn’t leading them to a title what he did was give the Nets some relevancy. KD can


xgoatgoatgoatx

I don’t blame them. They got the chance to sign 2 better players that will automatically make them contenders
