So, this is how Nash and the Performance Team should lay out the schedule:

- Kyrie plays tonight and Thursday but rests on Friday vs Grizzlies.

- KD returns vs Denver and plays at Manhattan on the following week back to back.

We’ve got two days off after that before the two game home stand against Orlando and Milwaukee (MLK day).

I feel like the Jazz have always KILLED us in recent years. Not thrilled about seeing Gobert.

Whats the word on Claxton? Last I heard he was going to miss the pre-season and here we are in the third week of the season.

Didn't Joe Ingles light us up for like 30 something last season.....at home no less. Yeah this is going to be a tough one. I'm just hoping we can go 2-2 with KD out.

Nash said recently, I think last week, he's weeks away. It was always supposed to be a month+ injury.

Yup. Last time we saw them was January 14th 2020 lol



I can already see the same pattern from watching these highlights last season.

Win or lose, I want to see a gritty, physical and passionate effort by our Nets. I know that everything hasn't gone our way so far this season, but I don't like some of our reactions. It's good to chastise each other in a healthy way, but we are crying and complaining to the officials too much. Instead of getting tough with them, get tough with your opponent and strike first. GO BROOKLYN!

REALLY like the changes made. Omly.problem.is that Kyrie is the only real scorer in the lineup BUT it should be better defensively.

Interested to see Bruce Brown plays with his first real mins.

Lol wow lost Harris in the starting lineup?

KD goes down and we switched with 3 benchers, one never played... just like that... If Brown plays exceptional its only going to add to the blunders of the coaching staff.... and ALLEN! LOL told ya, there’s a rift with KI and DJ!

2nd unit better be an offensive gem

I'm alright with this experiment. Prince can't function well in that bench unit so this is his chance to prove he can do better. Obviously it would help if KD was available too but it's still a chance. Likewise for Bruce Brown.

Prince is paid to function for any unit. I don’t wanna hear he can’t perform with certain units, he’s paid big bucks to perform in any role.

(Not going at you Dark, that was more of a post rant against Prince who has clearly not measured up since acquisition)

I know, but he's clearly not worth what he is paid. The best we can do is put him in strong lineups that minimize his weaknesses, and limit him to catch & shoot opportunities & defense. In that bench unit, Levert's struggles are hurting others too, and the offense is horrendous as a result.

Not sure how I like Joe being benched, especially for Prince who is a low IQ player.

I think if Brown does well, we will see him stay at SG and KD will take Prince's spot when he returns. I've wanted Green to start for awhile anyway.
