Thunder 117 – Nets 111

The Nets went into this game knowing they were down Lopez and more recently Reggie Evans was scratched with the flu and it turned out to hurt them as expected. The Thunder came out hot and had the Nets on their heels from the beginning but these new Brooklyn Nets never give up.


The captain Deron Williams did everything he could to bring the Nets back with 33pts and 7asts while going 5-9 from 3-point range but it wasn’t enough. Andray Blatche picked up the slack for the missing Lopez with 19pts and 11rebs and even 3 steals and played great defense.


The Nets transition defense was the key to this loss and Avery Johnson knows it and after watching film the Nets will adjust and will have to improve in order to win games like this against top tier teams.

Next up is a revenge game against the Golden State Warriors on Friday night and the Nets need a bounce back game to continue their solid home-court record and get their swagger back
