Agreed, Nash is particularly better at having Kevin Durant and James Harden on his team.

Wow. We came from 29 down, to 12 down.
That looks like it, for the night.

Team has no direction. Not good enough to win anything and no commitment to developing the young players.

Well, it was fun for a decent stretch at least, expected a loss after the whistle we got first half anyway

Loose schedule coming up now, move on and regroup

Tatum was a minus 33 with 5 turnovers. Cant beat a good team when your star plays like that

Can’t win if your best two players can’t hit their shots.

Doesn't help that Mills and Bembry outscored them on half as many shots.

This should really be a 50 point loss.


This team has been let down by their 'stars' all season long. The role players contribute enough most days, but you will always have Brown or Tatum suck to absurd levels during these L's. Today it was both, though I give JB somewhat of a pass because he is clearly off physically.

Of the things I like about Robert Williams, my favorite thing is that he spreads his arms when he retreats on defense.

seriously?

we came in to this game winners of 3 in a row, 8 of our last 11. we're the 3rd best team in the NBA over the past 3 weeks coming into tonight's game.

and tonight we lost to what many consider the best team in the league. the nets have arguably the best player on the planet, KD. they have 2 of the top 10 players on the planet, KD and Harden. And Paddy Mills literally could not miss.

No shame in losing to these guys, especially without Time Lord and J-rich, and with Brown still working his way back after returning from injury. It's only November. Do you want to be playing your best basketball in november or in the playoffs?

Marcus Smart needs some help. I hope Brad is looking at trade options. Not even Jays should be untouchable.

is this a joke?

last year's MVP Nikola Jokic was the 41st pick. The guy who won finals MVP last year and has won 2 MVP's, Giannis was the 15th pick.
