It isn’t the worst time to be a Brooklyn Nets fan, because the groups face off once more on Sunday night time in Los Angeles, this time to tackle the stressed Lakers.

Brooklyn has received 4 of its final 5 video games and with a win on Sunday the staff can attain a formidable .500 document. I say that figuring out that the Nets, on paper, needs to be like, 5 or 6 video games over .500 at this level; however that is junk paper – actual paper, nicely, this paper insists the Nets be relegated to any league beneath the NCAA.

Suspensions, dangerous play, bizarre entrance workplace selections/non-decisions…somewhat one thing for everybody.

However, like I stated, they’re one sport away from hitting the .500 mark and so they did all of this on the again of an extremely superior Kevin Durant and a forged of non-Kyrie Irvings.

Now they face a Lakers staff which may be with out LeBron James within the roster. Are issues lastly beginning to lookup?
