Game 1: 100-85 BKN Without Brook Lopez, the Brooklyn Nets pulled off a 15 point win over the Hawks behind a balanced scoring effort that saw the Nets' leading scorer, Evan Fournier, score just 14

Game 2: 101-86 ATL The Hawks pulled off the game 2 win behind Al Hereford's 18 points. Julius Randle and Dennis Schroder gave the Nets double-doubles, but it wasn't enough, as cold shooting down the stretch cost Brooklyn.

Game 3: 93-69 BKN An amazing defensive effort from the Nets gave them a 2-1 series edge. Brooklyn held the Hawks to just 69 points, including just 4 points in the 3rd quarter. Brook Lopez led the way for the Nets with 25 points, 18 rebounds, and 5 blocks.

Game 4: 107-103 BKN This was a much tougher game than game 3, but the Nets ultimately pulled through with the 4 point win to take a 3-1 series lead. Bradley Beal led the way in scoring with 26 points, but Julius Randle was the MVP of this game, tallying 20 points and 21 rebounds.

Game 5: 101-94 BKN This one was a lot closer than the score indicated, but in the end the Nets won the game and series over the Hawks. Brook Lopez led the team in scoring with 20 points.

The Brooklyn Nets won game 2 113-105 behind a balanced scoring effort that saw Bradley Beal lead the way with 19 points.

The Nets won game 3 111-104, with Beal going off for 40 points, while Thomas Robinson tallied 14 points and 14 boards. The Nets lost Brook Lopez to a twisted knee in this one, however. He is set to be out for 1-2 weeks from the time of the injury.

The Nets then won game 4 97-90 to sweep the series in front of their home fans. With Lopez out of the lineup, Bradley Beal and Julius Randle took over. Beal had a monster first half and 4th quarter, totaling 27 points, 6 rebounds, and 6 assists, while Julius Randle had a huge 3rd quarter with Beal and the rest of the offense struggling. Randle finished with 24 points and 9 rebounds.

Up next is the 1 seed Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference Finals. In the West, the Golden State Warriors got past the Minnesota Timberwolves to advance to the Western Conference Finals, while the Houston Rockets upset the Oklahoma City Thunder to make their way to the Conference Finals as well.

The Nets hope to have Brook Lopez (knee) back for game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Game 1: The Brooklyn Nets somehow found a way to beat the Boston Celtics 97-93 without their two best players: Bradley Beal and Brook Lopez. Tim Hardaway Jr. and Sam Dekker led the way with 17 and 16 points respectively. Overall, a solid team effort helped the short handed Nets.

Game 2: With Brook Lopez back, the Celtics managed to win 104-94, despite Julius Randle's 29 points and 8 rebounds. Dennis Schroder struggled all night, as he managed just 7 points on 2-8 shooting.

Game 3: The Nets blew out the Celtics in Bradley Beal's first game back, 102-84. Beal scored just 12 points, but Julius Randle once again led the way, this time with 21 points, 15 rebounds, and 4 blocks.

Game 4: The two stars for Brooklyn finally showed up as the Nets got past the Celtics easily, 114-99. Julius Randle shot just 1-8 and scored just 5 points, but was once again an animal on the boards, grabbing 21 rebounds. Brook Lopez scored 26 with 7 rebounds and 5 blocks, while Bradley Beal dropped 21 and 6 rebounds.

Game 5: The Brooklyn Nets upset the Boston Celtics 4 games to 1 with a game 5 win by the score of 118-80. Julius Randle once again put in his work, scoring 26 points, grabbing 6 rebounds, and swatting away 4 shots. But it was Dennis Schroder who was the player of the game in this one. He's struggled from the field thus far in the playoffs, but he rebounded in a nice way in this one. He scored 14 points on an efficient 5-8 shooting while dishing out 21 assists.

Next up for the Nets is a date in the second round with the 6th seed Chicago Bulls, who upset the Cleveland Cavaliers 4 games to 2 in round one. Elsewhere throughout the playoffs, the 1 seed Hawks play the 5 seed Pistons. In the West, the 1 seed Warriors play the 5 seed Timberwolves, while the 2 seed Thunder play the 6 seed Rockets.

End of Season Update

The Brooklyn Nets slumped their way to a 44-38 record, good for just the 7th seed in the East. They will play the Boston Celtics in the first round of the playoffs. They'll have to play the first game of the series without their two best players, Brook Lopez and Bradley Beal. Lopez is recovering from a broken finger suffered 2 weeks ago and Beal is close but not quite ready to return from a sprained right knee.

Lopez led the team in scoring and rebounding with 19.0 points per game and 10.1 rebounds per game. Dennis Schroder led the team in assists with 7.6 per game. Lopez also led the NBA in blocks per game with 2.8.

During the All-Star break, the Brooklyn Nets traded PF Nikola Mirotic and a 2020 first round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for PF Julius Randle. This deal was done to try and help Brooklyn's low-post defense and rebounding.

NEW YORK - The battle of New York City was won by the Brooklyn Nets 99-90. This game was close throughout until a great 3rd quarter defensively by the Nets helped them pull ahead of the Knicks. Carmelo had his usual good game, but he didn't get much support from the rest of his teammates, as Porzingis, his number 2 man, scored only 4 points.

The big men were the story for Brooklyn, as Julius Randle and Brook Lopez combined for 43 points and 16 rebounds. In Randle's first 3 games since being traded from the Lakers to the Nets, he has accumulated 48 rebounds, an average of 16 a game, doing exactly what the Nets brought him in to do.

All-Star Break Update

The Brooklyn Nets sit at 30-22 at the All-Star break, good for the 4th best record in the East. So far it's been a pretty inconsistent season for Brooklyn, as they'll go on 5 game winning streaks quickly followed by 3 game losing streaks. More offense is what coach William Goodrich hopes to find in the second half of the season, as the Nets are scoring 97.8 points per game (22nd in NBA). The Nets are playing good defense, however, as they are allowing 99.3 points per game (8th best in NBA). The bench scoring has been phenomenal for Brooklyn, as both Tim Hardaway Jr. and Trey Burke are averaging more than 8 points per game off the bench.

Team MVP: Brook Lopez
Unsung Hero: Tim Hardaway Jr.
Biggest Surprise: Trey Burke
Biggest Disappointment: Evan Fournier

After an offseason saw the Nets fill out their roster with bad multi-year contracts, they traded a few of them away.
- Traded PG Norris Cole to Pistons for SF Malik Pope
- Traed PF Cliff Alexander to Thunder for C Mitch McGary and a 2019 second round pick
After those trades, the Nets made one more deal to upgrade a position that failed them a season ago: small forward. They traded Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, a 2019 first round pick, and the $4 million contract of Malik Pope to the Magic for SF/SG Evan Fournier.

After the 3 trades, here's how Brooklyn will open the season:

BROOKLYN - This was an old-school, grind-it-out kind of game, as the Atlanta Hawks defeated the Brooklyn Nets in a game for the ages 91-89. After a strong Hawks run, the Nets trailed for much of the 4th quarter, including as much as 7 points with just 1:30 left. Things looked bleak for Brooklyn until Nikola Mirotic hit a 3 with 39 seconds left to bring them within 1. After a big defensive stop, Brook Lopez hit a jump hook against the much smaller Thabo Sefolosha to tie the game with just 4 seconds left. Sefolosha would get the last laugh, however, as he hit a fadeaway jumper at the buzzer to give Atlanta a 2 point victory.

Mirotic and Beal carried the offense down the stretch, as big man Brook Lopez couldn't get anything going for most of the game. Lopez finished with just 10 points and 3 rebounds. Defensively, the Nets couldn't stop the Hawks big men from taking and making threes. Kevin Love dropped 23 points, including 9 from the 3 point line. Mirza Teletovic had 15 of his own off the bench, including 9 from the 3 point line.

Notes: Jeff Teague suffered a broken leg in game 2, and he will be out for the rest of the season for Atlanta. The Hawks went on to win game 4 104-91, extending their series lead to 3-1.

ATLANTA - Game 1 went according to plan for the Brooklyn Nets as they stole home-court advantage from the Atlanta Hawks. The Nets defeated the Hawks 98-87 in game one of this 3 vs. 6 matchup. This one was closer than the score indicated, as it wasn't until a late 4th quarter run that the Nets pulled away and eventually won by 12.

It was a big night for the big men in this one. Brook Lopez totaled 23 points, 9 rebounds, and 6 blocks, with Nikola Mirotic adding 21 points and 8 rebounds of his own. Dennis Schroder quietly orchestrated the offense the entire offense, as he finished with 14 points and 13 assists, while also harassing Jeff Teague all night, eventually finishing with 3 steals. While much of the bench struggled as usual, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Thomas Robinson provided huge sparks off the bench. Robinson scored 10 points on 5-5 shooting, while Hollis-Jefferson scored 6 points in just 5 minutes while providing tremendous energy.

Brooklyn got a scare late in the second quarter when Bradley Beal fell hard on his right wrist. Luckily, he was able to complete the game and is only listed as day-to-day now. He is expected to play in game two.
