Brooklyn Nets beat NY Knicks in overtime, 96-89


The Brooklyn Nets, formerly of New Jersey, pulled out an overtime thriller in their new-look rivalry opener with the New York Knicks who are from Manhattan, 96-89.

The win allowed the city rivals to tie for first place.

The game was originally scheduled to be played November 1, but was postponed in the wake of superstorm Sandy.

Wearing uniform #42 that Jackie Robinson made famous in Brooklyn for the Dodgers, Jerry Stackhouse scored the tie-breaking three-point goal with 3:31 left in overtime to help the Nets clinch the game.

Brook Lopez led the Nets with 22 points and 11 rebounds.

The Knicks only had two players in double figures scoring, Carmelo Anthony with 35 points, 13 rebounds and Tyson Chandler with 28 points and 10 rebounds.

Cavaliers use their bench to defeat New Jersey

The Cleveland Cavaliers have always had a solid bench.

This year, they’ll probably need more production than usual to offset the loss of LeBron James’ scoring.

Antawn Jamison and Anthony Parker both connected on three-point shots late in the game and the Cavs reserves scored 52 points in paving the way to a 93-91 win over the New Jersey Nets in Newark, New Jersey.

The win on Wednesday was Cleveland’s third in a row and they’ve beaten the Nets for the ninth straight time.

Cleveland had balanced scoring led by J.J. Hickson with 18 points, Ramon Sessions and Antawn Jamison with 15 each and Daniel Gibson with 14.

Travis Outlaw led the Nets with a season-high 27 points, followed by Devin Harris with 18 and Brook Lopez scored 16.

The Nets have lost five in a row after opening the season with two wins.

Avery Johnson will try to revive the New Jersey Nets

compiled from staff and wire reports

Avery Johnson has been hired to revive the fortunes of the New Jersey Nets.

The ESPN analyst coached Dallas for three-plus seasons, going 194-70 in the regular season and 23-24 in the playoffs. He guided the Mavs to the NBA finals in 2006, but was fired after a first-round playoff series loss to New Orleans in 2008.

Johnson will take over a team that posted a league-worst 12-70 record and set a league-record opening the season with 18 straight losses.

The miserable start led to the firing of coach Lawrence Frank after 16 games. Outgoing general manager Kiki Vandeweghe served as the interim coach for the majority of the season. It was only the fifth 70-loss season in NBA history.

The Nets threatened to break the Philadelphia 76ers’ league record for fewest wins in a season-nine- until a late run got them away from breaking that unwanted record. The 76ers set the record in 1972-73.

Because of that record, New Jersey will get the third pick in the upcoming NBA draft.

Avery Johnson is a proven winner, and his coming to New Jersey will reunite him with point guard Devin Harris, who was shipped to New Jersey in the deal for Jason Kidd to the Mavericks.

The Nets do have some talent in Brook Lopez, Terrence Williams, Courtney Lee and Chinese Olympian Yi Jianlian.

Johnson will have an owner, Mikhail Prokhorov, the Russian Billionaire who said his wallet is open to free agent spending. The Nets have more than $23 million to spend on available talent.

The Nets will be moving to the Prudential Center in Newark for the next two years before permanently moving to their new arena, The Barclays Center, in Brooklyn, New York in 2012.

It’s a big deal to the New Jersey Nets! Winning their 10th game

New Jersey Nets public address announcer Gary Sussman told everybody in the arena, “We got 10″!  The Nets win!  That happening after the New Jersey Nets snapped a 14-game losing streak in the series to the Spurs. The Nets hadn’t beaten San Antonio since the 2003 NBA Finals.

The Monday night win, helped the Nets avoid any chance of tying for the worst record in NBA history by beating the short-handed San Antonio Spurs, 90-84.

New Jersey, once upon a time was one of the NBA’s better teams, has been in danger of the worst record ever since opening the season with an NBA-record, 18-game losing streak.

Brook Lopez scored 22 points and had 12 rebounds for New Jersey, who grabbed control of the game with a 15-4 run late in the fourth quarter to improve to 10-64.  The 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers, who went 9-73, will remain in the books as the league’s worst team.

The Nets committed a franchise record-low four turnovers, none in the second half.

Big first quarter fuels Cavaliers in romp over Nets, 111-92

With the Cleveland Cavaliers rolling up a 35-15 first quarter lead Wednesday night against the New Jersey Nets, the fans were thinking any chance they had in the game was disappearing rather quickly. Well their thoughts were right. Cleveland coasted to a 111-92 victory in East Rutherford, N.J.  at the IZOD Center. Cleveland is now 48-14.

The Cavaliers, using their small, quick lineup were so dominating in the first quarter, they shot out to a 20 point lead in ‘no time flat’.

Cavs star LeBron James, had 26 points and 14 rebounds. J.J. Hickson scored 20 points and pulled down 14 rebounds.

Brook Lopez, had 21 points and 14 rebounds for the Nets who creeped back in the game and trailed by 11 points in the fourth quarter but could’nt get any closer.

This was the  Cavs last visit to the Meadowlands complex. New Jersey will soon break ground on their new arena in Brooklyn. In the meantime, they’ll play in the Prudential Center in Newark until the new arena is ready.

As usual LeBron James was approached by reporters from the New York/New Jersey area about him possibly playing for the Nets or the Knicks. As usual, he said nothing about his plans for free agency.
