    Brooklyn Nets Are A Tough Underrated Defensive Team, Lopez High IQ

    Watching the game tonight, I objectively determined two things about this squad.

    1. They don't quit defensively as they have Avery Johnson's DNA of being tough and perseverant. They don't give up anything easy.


    2. Brook Lopez has a high basketball IQ on the offensive end. He knows how to use his body well against defenders, has a nice smooth J, and is a very underrated penetrator and interior passer.


    If you guys watched the game on NBATV and got a good look at the BKN Nets, what did you think of them?

    i think if they get a coach and joe johnson decides if he wants to play they will be a top team in the east but they are a yr or 2 away just like the heat celtics bulls & everybody else that had to gel.

    Joe Johnson and Deron need to play better, and I think they eventually will

    It may be true but your intent is elsewhere.

    They're a top 4 team in the East. GREAT rebounding and hustling, reggie evans and crash really make their defense shine. It almost felt like every play gives the opposing team a ton of pressure with protecting the ball, over 48 minutes, that really makes a difference in the game.

    Tonight we also saw why Dwight Howard truly is the only #1 center, with every other center far far behind. His presence in the paint pretty much makes every other teams offense settle for shots, layups are a rarity now.

    Brooks offense is good, but we've known that. His defense is horrid, slug. Great iq though, i like the kid... I'd still take a healthy bynum over him though, too bad bynum is bynum though.

    If Brooklyn stays healthy, I consider them a contender.

    As for the Lakers, they are playing great and dont even have their starting pg (nash) and backup pg (steve blake) back yet.

    Laker fans and Nets fans have a lot to be happy about tonight. Its all uphill from here.

    The Nets are not a good defensive team they haven't been all year. Their free throw defense was excellent tonight though.

    They're a really fun team to watch, and surprisingly deep for a team in their first year of being competitive, usually benches take a little longer.

    Coming soon to a TKRO stadium near you

    They're definitely a work in progress on both ends of the floor, but as tonight showed, they have the potential to be a very good team. They need to learn the defensive strategy, Brook Lopez has to continue his development on the defensive end, and Joe Johnson has to grow comfortable in this environment. Played decently tonight, but hasn't shown up a lot of times since the season began.

    you obviously didn't watch the game lol...Nets didn't have Wallace the last 7 games, him coming back gives them a difference maker on defense and it showed for the first time tonight.....

    According to most on this site Lopez is a scrub and one of the worst players in the league.

    It takes a real LEGEND to win a championship in Brooklyn, and I think we've found that special person. Deron Williams only a matter of time before the gold comes home. If there is one guy who can do it, its you! We love you Deron and hope you retire in Brooklyn!
