Brooklyn Nets vs Los Angeles Clippers 11/17/18 Postgame Notes and Observations

The Nets debuted their City Edition, Biggie inspired apparel, for the first time tonight. It seemed as if the team was channeling the Brooklyn icon’s energy early, but were unable to hold on as the Clippers ran away with it late in the fourth. Here’s how it all went down.

1st Quarter:

  • Crabbe’s form looked good on that opening three
  • Make that 2 from 2 for AC
  • Nice offensive board and finish from Allen

  • Lovely dish from Crab to Allen, he’s feeling it early
  • Russell continues his form from the arc with a contested 3
  • Allen has 7 quick points in under 4 minutes
  • Neither team can miss right now
  • 7 for D’Lo now too
  • Dinwiddie’s offensive versatility immediately on show
  • Jarrett Allen showing some finesse in the pick and roll
  • Spencer with the jam!

  • Solid first quarter on the offensive end for Brooklyn

2nd Quarter:

  • Ed Davis doing what Ed Davis does, dominate the offensive glass
  • Russell with 12 points on 5/7 shooting after the long 2
  • Rondae creating offense with good hustle and is rewarded in making the tough 2
  • Joe Harris isn’t just a perimeter threat, he continues to drive the ball at a high rate
  • There is no better offensive rebounder in this league than Ed Davis
  • Nets doing well on the glass so far

  • Clippers cut the lead to 5 after Brooklyn’s lead got to as large as 15
  • Harris gives the Nets some breathing room on the three

  • Really back and forth game with both teams hitting their shots late in the 2nd

3rd Quarter:

  • Nets kick off their scoring with a Dudley three
  • Transition buckets are the best type offense
  • Two buckets in a row in transition
  • Back to back double-doubles for Jarrett Allen, with plenty of time still left in the third

  • Nets offence look really fluid so far
  • 4 threes for Russell now late in the quarter

  • Nets offense ending with a perimeter shot from Rondae isn’t ideal
  • Brooklyn with their most points scored through three quarters this season (97)

4th Quarter:

  • Mike Scott cuts the lead to 2 on a three, closest margin since the first quarter
  • Harris gives the Nets back the lead on a nice drive
