We might see this team in the playoffs. I don’t like how we match up with them.

This one’s over, we didn’t have it tonight.

Durant is an ultra gifted scorer, but this game also showed a lot of his limitations too.

We have no defense, no rebounding, and our offense is a disjointed, jumpshot reliant mess.

Yikes, terrible game. Did these guys stay up late last night? Awful shooting, trash turnovers an no defense.

Kind of like the Charlotte game except we've been sloppy the entire game. Don't see us closing in like we did in that game.

I'm not sure we match up well against ourselves.

Just an overall bad game on both ends of the court... Atlanta isn't even a good team :lol:.. Just goes to show you that the Nets themselves have work to do and can't take a mediocre team for granted.

Worst game of the year but I think people are gonna see ATL is legit. Crazy offense with a lot of versatility.

I though Allen was just as good as Capella. This matchup proves otherwise.

Couldn’t hit shots and turned the ball over like crazy. That’s probably gonna be the majority of our losses this year if we’re being honest.

Nahhh, ATL is def a good team. Tons of weapons on offense and they seem to be well coached.

Exactly. Even when we make shots, it’s not encouraging because they’re not coming within a natural flow of offensive sets. It seems like we’re just freestyling out there with no real purpose. You’re not going to get back in the game without sustainable, efficient offense.

The interior D is garbage without Allen. Jordan is going to be the odd man out by next month at this rate if everyone continues to bark at him on defense. Man up.

The center position is still a problem though. Even if Allen starts, he’s only going to play 30 minutes max and it’s not like he’s a super elite defensive anchor.

We can clamor for Claxton but he’s still super young. He might give us more effort, but I expect him to make a ton of mistakes.

We are not a physically strong team and we don’t have great defensive awareness. Big picture wise, I’m having trouble seeing us being able to beat elite teams if we can’t elite defensively. While I still think a 3&D player is ideal next to Kyrie and KD (and TLC fits that role), I hope we can find a way to acquire a better 3&D player like PJ Tucker to plug in as the starter.
