    Spencer Dinwiddie taking advantage of rare opportunity in Brooklyn

    Coming into the 2017-18 season, Brooklyn Nets point guard Spencer Dinwiddie was an afterthought.

    Defense key in NBA’s era of offense

    NBA offenses have become quite sophisticated. In fact, some of the league’s lesser teams have been responsible for a prolific number of points in recent years. Take, for example, the 2016-17 Brooklyn Nets. Even though the team finished with the league’s worst record at 20-62, they still managed to...

    Five observations from Brooklyn Nets’ preseason slate

    The Brooklyn Nets went into the preseason with just four games on their schedule. Following a 3-1 record in those games, the team lent some clarity to how the regular season might go.

    Brooklyn Nets look to backcourt for progress

    While they don’t have the same expectations as the original iteration of Brooklyn’s backcourt–a term infamously bestowed upon Deron Williams and Joe Johnson–D’Angelo Russell and Jeremy Lin will be key to the Nets’ progress in 2017-18. In a guard-driven league, the Nets will likely play the duo of...
