Despite his 1-10 performance from 3, we’re still at 47% for the game :lol:

That roster isn't very good and they are missing Brandon Ingram.
I think more than Ingram, they missed NAW and Josh Hart tonight. Those two guys had been playing the best ball of their careers recently before getting hurt.

Yes the Pels are bad but we have nail biters again bad teams all the time. Blow outs are a good sign.

Durant misses two months and comes back and looks like the best player on the floor and in the freaking world. Nothing more to say

Multiple hard charges were taken.

This will be the same game plan for Giannis.

nice blowout win and great comeback by KD. What a team effort, the passing and cutting was a thing of beauty. LMA made the right cuts for open dunks, Brown as well. Kyrie got up ! He had a couple highlights here. KD didn't lose a step. This was such a fun game to watch. We played great defense too, we held Zion to a bad shooting night.

TLC needs to go, I thought he was another gem that Marks found but dude is trash. Brick after brick and he keeps throwing it up. Alize has a nice touch around the rim. I still don't agree with DNP DJ, he could of def had some mins this game. On to the next, let's blow the Lakers out now. We should be able to win the next couple games without Harden.

The talking heads were down to “chemistry issues “. How is Durant going to fit back in after Harden and even Kyrie had to take the reigns for so long? This game shows how incredible this team is going to be. Said it before, this will be the best big 3 ever assembled with serious depth. They were laughing the whole game. There’s your chemistry issues.

The doubters are just trying to convince themselves but deep down inside they too know this core has a good chance at doing something special.

They have clear defined roles with Harden running point, along with the right mix of vets and youth. Plus they are boys with each other, you can be sure they hear the noise. This would drive any competitor.

Nothing makes the haters hate more than ever when they see you succeed. I have never seen anyone in this league cause more full blown juvenile salt takes than what KD has managed to do, bravo lets keep it going.

Just catching up on the game. Lonzo wanted no part of that Blake dunk :D And Doris with the call. Brilliant stuff.

This team is a nightmare for fans who have spent years trash talking KD and Kyrie :lol:

Good to see KD back. He looked like he never missed time either. Just seamlessly fitting in. Aldridge and Blake played well. Good to have a blowout.

Alize Johnson is averaging 9ppg 7rpg through 5 games on excellent efficiency and he is a plus defensively. I don't see any way that the Nets don't sign this guy for the rest of the year.

And hopefully for more years after too, I could easily see him in the rotation next season and at the min. that is huge.

Also, Alize's PER has finally fallen under 30 after the Pelicans game. Still higher than Harden's though

Yeah agree, Zion was held way below his usual percentages... too bad. Just hope those hard charges don’t lead to any Nets injuries.
