Brooklyn Nets’ First Of Many


The Brooklyn Nets’ first win of the season came in their third game as they dominated the Charlotte Hornets 133-121. Big scorers for the game were Cam Thomas with 33 points and Mikal Bridges with 24.

It’s Looking Like Scary Hours For The Brooklyn Nets This Season!

Ben Simmons has been looking like his old play making self. Simmons had two full court passes to assist a Spencer Dinwiddie lay up. The following pass went to Dinwiddie, which got kicked out to Finney-smith for three. Simmons has been averaging a near triple-double, with 8.3 pts, 10.0 rbs and 8.3 ast. He also keeps great efficiency with 60% from the field. 

Thomas continued his amazing scoring blitz with another 33 pts last night. He led the way for their big win and had another impressive efficient night with 10-17 from the field. The Nets have some thinking to do about the starting line-up, with Thomas forcing his way into the rotation. 

Bridges is getting back to what he started last season, with his elite playing style that can be compared to Kevin Durant. Shot after shot dropped as he was trying to show that he is the first option on the Nets; to hopefully lead them to the Playoffs. Over the seasons, his scoring jumped up by 7+ points from his transition from the Phoenix Suns to the Nets. He is showing that it won’t stop there and could be averaging close to 27 pts per game this year. 

Every Nets Player Wanted A Piece Of The Action!

Those three weren’t the only reason the Nets won; their new pick ups are showing a promising future. Finney-Smith played 31 minutes and had a good 19 pts, 7 rbs and 1 ast. Lonnie Walker IV played 21 minutes and also had 19 pts with 5 rbs and 4 ast. These performances were salt in the Hornets wounds. 

If the Nets keep this performance up, they won’t just be one of the most interesting teams in the league but can possibly get deep into the playoffs. Their young squad is one of the best in the league and they have a bright future together.
