Nets with Kyrie not in the building: Loss to Celtics
Nets with Kyrie in the building: Win against the Celtics
And people try to say we’re better without Kyrie....

I think it's only the celtics who lose with kyrie's presence
[–][CLE] Kyrie Irving anuj123456 123 指標 9小時前
Dude has such a bad mojo on the Celtics just his presence fucking them up. No wonder Celtics fans are constantly bitching

For the last seven meetings between Nets & Celtics the home team has won
[–][BRK] Caris LeVert MolingHard 77 指標 10小時前*
That's pretty crazy, because last year you guys were significantly better than us.
EDIT: I just looked up our games last year, and Kyrie sat out 3 of the 4 games vs us, which doesn't really mean anything, but is kinda hilarious.

Kyrie purposely avoiding his future teams too.

Fuck. He's missed so many this season already.

I don’t know about you guys, but all those Celtics players looked very happy to see Kyrie after the game to me. Tatum in particular
[–]Austra liateh_noob 25 指標 9小時前
Tatum and Smart are close with Kyrie

Walker and Smart combining to 2-14 from 3 would do that to you

Was never the biggest fan of Napier when Spence was injured last season but Pinson makes him look like Chris Paul
[–]Nets Kwilly462 57 指標 10小時前
I'm ready for Kyrie to come back. I've seen Pinson as our backup PG LONG ENOUGH.
[–]Celtics breet12345 24 指標 10小時前
Bruh when Kyrie comes back and dinwiddie is the backup PG holy shit they gonna be a problem. Brooklyn will have a top point guard (not sure if best but Kyrie still top 5 when he shows up) and probably the best backup point guard.
All these threes giving me flashbacks. Not to mention Jerret Allen is a beast. If it wasn’t for the Kyrie stuff going on making Brooklyn fans just as insufferable as we are then they’d be my second favorite team (I still like them a lot tho they got a great squad).
[–]Nets Bigbadbuck 14 指標 10小時前
i feel the same way about boston. like the team and players but its just too much bad blood at this point between the fans lol
[–]Celtics b reet12345 12 指標 10小時前
It has been going on for years with everyone clowning on Brooklyn for trading for pierce and KG, but I’ve always followed Brooklyn from that point. Not to mention when Jeremy Lin came I was so hyped (f) to see him shine and unfortunately that didn’t work out.
Then the rise of dinwiddie, Allen, Lavert, and Harris came and I really liked watching them. Was very happy for Brooklyn fans because they finally got a good team and then with the additions of Kyrie and KD, they’re gonna be contenders.
Now both teams are shitting on each other lmao
[–]Nets Bigbadbuck 10 指標 10小時前
yeah i think a lot of boston fans actually started liking us because they were following us pretty closely because you owned our picks. Nets fans obviously hated boston at this time tho. but then after the kyrie signing everything just blew up lol
[–]Celtics SquimJim 666 指標 10小時前
Since going 10-1, we've gone 3-4.
I'm not happy about this
[–]Nets SexyTimeDoe 93 指標 10小時前
The fun thing about starting 10-1 is that you can go 3-4 and still be 13-5
[–]rNBABannedMyAlt 6 指標 10小時前
we are on pace for 60 wins without our best overall player, and lost those 4 games by a combined 15 points or something
[–]Celtics SquimJim 42 指標 10小時前
I agree, but we are also losing very winnable games and have consistently spotted our opponents the first half of the game
[–]Celtics jcoldiron 318 指標 10小時前
We need gordo back
[–]Celtics SquimJim 174 指標 10小時前
We also need to play like we belong in the NBA at the start of games
[–]Clippers KianNeon 63 指標 10小時前
This was kinda the issue even when you were going 10-1 right?
[–]Celtics SquimJim 39 指標 10小時前
Yup. It's a bad habit that we were able to overcome, but it's not something we can do when we are on the road or are playing a great team. We've played more road games the past 7 games and teams are better able to capitalize when they are on their own court.
[–]Celtics freshbakeddonuts 15 指標 9小時前
Gordon helped a lot with that tho. Majority of his scoring was coming in the first quarter/half and he would turn more into a facilitator in the second half when others started to pick it up.
When we are fully healthy, we are a sneaky good team with our depth and talent.
[–]Thunder moneybooy 20 指標 10小時前
Why did Theis not play?
[–]Celtics GenuineMasshole 38 指標 10小時前
Bumped knees at the start of the 2nd.
I read it shouldn't have kept him out so it was likely something else as well.

Kemba: 0 FTs on 100 layups
[–]Celtics sevenfivesevensix 57 指標 10小時前
The refs hate Kemba. I think it’s because he’s not very tall and isn’t as strong as IT4 was.
[–]Hornets Scrypto 71 指標 10小時前
It’s always been like this. He goes for a lot of contact while driving and sometimes it works but sometimes the refs don’t call shit and he gets frustrated and goes into foul hunting mode where he starts embellishing contact every shot attempt and getting more and more tilted.

Boy does this one feel good. Shoutout to Spencer Dinwiddie for being so damn good with the absence of Kyrie/LeVert.
[–]Nets NetsBetsSets 151 指標 10小時前
Missing I think our three best players . I'll take it! Love these guys.
[–]LeatherFart 41 指標 10小時前
Is Levert better than Dinwiddie?
[–]Nets NetsBetsSets 29 指標 10小時前
I think so, but I totally understand if other people think otherwise.
[–]Nets thepriceisonthecan 80 指標 10小時前
More talented, but his health troubles are worrisome
[–]Nets BasedGodProdigy 38 指標 10小時前
Not if Dinwiddie keeps this up. Early on, Levert was better but it's almost like Dinwiddie thrives off having a big load on his shoulders.
[–]76ers Eric_Jr_ 50 指標 10小時前
Dinwiddie is so fucking good.
[–]Nets Expulsure 12 指標 10小時前
It’s definitely very close. After this recent stretch by Dinwiddie, I’d call them equal
[–]Nets YoungJudge 14 指標 10小時前
Dinwiddie is the more consistent and I might be leaning toward Dinwiddie right now. I don't think any less of LeVert. Dinwiddie is just insane and with Kyrie and LeVert out, were seeing how crucial Dinwiddie is to the team. There's nobody on the second unit that can run the offense.
[–]Belony InMyLeftPocket 21 指標 8小時前
I was at this game. The guy barely warmed up. Showed up after everyone was on the court, took maybe 3 or 4 shots then stretched on the bench.
[–][BRK] Caris LeVert MolingHard 15 指標 8小時前
I'm pretty sure the first thing he did this morning was wake up and complain on Twitter about how early this game was. Like dude c'mon! He came out on fire though.

Jarrett Allen is such a good player
[–]Nets Lambchops_Legion 6 指標 9小時前
His rebounding has gotten so good this year.
[–]Warriors Bandwagon sleekcollins 69 指標 10小時前
He's solid but gets exposed badly against the big bangers like Embiid, KAT, Drummond. Needs a bit of musle.
[–]Nets chlebmyott 25 指標 9小時前
He's been a lot better this year and if you see him compared to last year its clear he's continued to bulk up but obviously still needs more
[–]Nets bkn1090 7 指標 7小時前
yeah definitely but also hes only 21, give him a few years to bulk (like he did this summer) and hes gonna be insane
[–]Nets HeywardYouBlowMe 56 指標 9小時前
Jarrett Allen looks like a hamster against Drummond.
Every game we play them, Drummond has a 20/20.
[–][BRK] Caris LeVert MolingHard 27 指標 9小時前
Yea, but he looked surprisingly good vs Kanter last 2 games, whose sonned us on multiple occasions. Also Drummond gets 20/20s vs everyone. Those 3 guys he mentioned absolute dominate everyone in the league outside of maybe Gasol, so it's great to see Allen actually be the one to run the boards for once.
[–]Celtics djostreet 12 指標 7小時前
Kanter is just as effective as me on defense. I'm 6'1" 175lbs
[–]Nets thepriceisonthecan 29 指標 10小時前
Sucks for the fans that went that neither teams all star point guard showed up for the game. At least Dinwiddie put on a show
[–]shanmustafa 61 指標 10小時前
what a weird game. Jaylen with 7 shots is criminal. the starters were playing like they literally just got out of bed. these 12pm games should be illegal
[–]Celtics 1337speak 24 指標 10小時前
Celtics were ass tonight, Dinwiddie was great. Kemba was ice cold, C's were sloppy with the ball and absolutely sucked on D.
[–]Celtics mr_duong567 6 指標 10小時前
GG Nets, that was entertaining and you guys played well.
Brown needs to get the ball more, I feel like he had so open looks but never got the ball. That small 4th quarter run wasn’t enough and shooting 1-12 for 3 in the second half sucked.
[–][BRK] Caris LeVert MolingHard 92 指標 10小時前
Jesus imagine playing a basketball game at 12 PM right after crushing a Thanksgiving meal...
With that being said Dinwiddie, JA, and Temple played great. I'm pretty sure Temple says "Fuck the Celtics" during his Thanksgiving dinner, he was absolutely on fire both games. Musa and Pinson still need to go back to the G-League this year though, they were TO machines.
Tatum looked like a stud this game. Kemba and Brown had a pretty off day. Smart bricked a ton, but was a dog all game. Wanamaker is solid piece off the bench. Seems like without Hayward a lot of the ball movement and spacing is gone and the Celtics of last year come back, where it's each star player trying to get his own and only 1 player can go off.
Watching Kanter play defense is hilarious as always, and it makes me laugh about about all the Celtics fans who told me over the summer that Stevens would make him a solid defender just because he's constructed stellar defenses before.
Either way, GG Celtics, it was a fun game to watch, see you guys in March.

Which is nice to see because last year many of us thought he was a scrub and wanted the team to get rid of him. Really glad that he has been able to step up and do so well this year.
