Elite Basketball Brooklyn Nets Jerseys Womens For Sale

NEW YORK — Brett Brown sensed another mood swing building from his young 76ers team prone to mistakes, some of which were exposed during their four-game road trip.

The coach then called for a pair of timeouts during a key 3 1/2-minute stretch midway through the third quarter, quelling any worries from his squad that has Philadelphia bound for the playoffs for the first time since the spring of 2012.

Joel Embiid scored 21 points, Robert Covington added 19, and the 76ers went on to rout the Brooklyn Nets 120-97 on Sunday night.

“I think we’re learning,” Brown said. “I feel these games, as much as we want to win and we do, we’re trying to move up the food chain, we’re trying to move up as far as we can.”

Dario Saric scored 18 points and Ben Simmons had 11 points, six assists and six rebounds for the 76ers, who were able to avenge a disappointing loss to the Nets at Barclays Center in January.

Philadelphia closed out its road trip at 2-2.

D’Angelo Russell had 26 points for the Nets, who have lost 13 of their last 15 games.

“I just feel like we’ve got to treat every team like Golden State. When we came out ready to play, everybody stepped up,” Russell said. “It wasn’t 48 minutes, but we started the game and gave ourselves a chance. I feel like today we didn’t really give ourselves a chance.”

Philadelphia led by as many as 19 points in the first half before the Nets cut it to six on consecutive baskets by Russell early in the third quarter to make it 74-68 with 8:20 remaining.

Brown then called a timeout and the 76ers responded with a 6-0 run and two key steals to go up 80-68 with 6:40 left in the period.

A 3-pointer by Brooklyn’s Allen Crabbe cut the lead to 86-77 and forced Brown to take another timeout with 4:45 to go.

Something then clicked, although both teams trading baskets, with the last one in the quarter coming from Nets reserve forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson’s dunk with 1:22 remaining, cutting the deficit to 96-83. With a strong contingent of fans that started a chant for the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, it was as close at the Nets would get.

The 76ers’ defense tightened up in the fourth quarter and didn’t allow a Brooklyn basket until 2:22 left in regulation. Its offense went on to blitz the Nets off the floor in the opening moments of the final period with a 7-0 run that pushed the lead to 103-83.

After a pair of free throws from DeMarre Carroll ended a scoring drought of almost seven minutes, Marco Belinelli answered by making back-to-back baskets to put the Sixers up by 109-85.

“Energy. We were on lockdown,” Embiid said. “We locked in and we did a better job. We were aggressive rebounding the ball. We gave up less offensive rebounds.”

KEY ADDITIONS

The Sixers didn’t go out and add a big name to bolster their roster at the trade deadline, but they were able to land two key pieces that make them a better product than they were back in February, according to Brown.

Since joining Philadelphia, Belinelli has averaged 11.3 points, while Ersan Ilyasova has given them 9.4 points and 4.0 assists per game.
“I think that they give you a far greater chance to try to win in the playoffs,” Brown said. “I felt like the group that we had, we were right there. I think that they tip it. I think that they provide a veteran sort of presence.”

TIP-INS

76ers: Philadelphia had four other players score in double figures. Starter JJ Reddick added 12 points. Ersan Ilyasova came off the bench with 11 points and 13 rebounds, with Justin Anderson chipping in 11. T.J. McConnell filled up the stats sheet by tallying 10 points, six assists, four steals and four boards.

Nets: Russell is averaging 15.6 points, 5.9 assists and 3.6 rebounds in eight games since the All-Star break.

Wholesale Portland Trail Blazers Black Hoodies NBA Cheap China

PORTLAND, Ore. — Damian Lillard tried to make a final statement as the NBA All-Star roster deadline nears.

The Portland guard hit his first nine shots — including seven 3-pointers — and scored 31 points as the Trail Blazers beat the Dallas Mavericks 117-108 on Saturday night for their season-best sixth consecutive home win.

Lillard, who didn’t miss a shot until late in the third quarter, went 10 of 15 from the floor and handed out nine assists to lead Portland. Backcourt mate CJ McCollum scored 26 points, while Evan Turner had 17 points and Al-Farouq Aminu 13.

Portland tied a season high with 18 3-pointers. Six Blazers made at least two each, led by Lillard’s seven.

NBA All-Star reserves, voted by the coaches, will be announced Tuesday. Portland’s next game isn’t until Monday, and by then, many coaches will have already voted. Saturday’s performance might have been Lillard’s last All-Star statement.

Lillard didn’t see Saturday’s game as an All-Star audition, but rather, what he’s supposed to do.

“I gotta play at a certain way and perform at a certain level for us to be able to win games,” he said. “That’s why my job is. I don’t have anything else to say about it.”

Turner spoke up on Lillard’s behalf.

“He’s been playing at a high level,” Turner said. “An All-Star level. They screwed him the last two years, right? When’s the make-up call? They owe him a couple. That’s case enough.”

Wesley Matthews led Dallas with 23 points. Dirk Nowitzki and Dennis Smith Jr. scored 21 points each, with Nowitzki setting a season high.

Portland led by 18 points in the second half but had trouble putting away the pesky Mavericks. Dallas whittled away at Portland’s advantage during the fourth quarter, getting as close as five points with 36 seconds remaining. A dunk by the Blazers’ Ed Davis with 17 seconds left put the Mavericks away.

Portland led 62-45 at halftime, after the Blazers shot 57 percent (24 of 42) during the first half.

“First half, I thought was bad. Second half was very good. You’ve got to play both halves, so we’ve got to get a better start,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said.

Portland led 33-20 after the first quarter, and its dominance was particularly evidence on the final two baskets. Shabazz Napier stripped J.J. Barea at midcourt and finished with a rare dunk. Seconds later, McCollum had a layup after blowing by Yogi Ferrell so quickly the Dallas guard fell to the ground.

TIP-INS

Mavericks: Barea returned to the lineup after missing Tuesday’s game at Denver. He scored 12 points. … This is the second time this season Dallas has had a four-day break in between games. The Mavericks are 0-2 in that situation. … Devin Harris suffered a head injury during the first half and didn’t return.

Trail Blazers: Matthews left the Blazers for Dallas following the 2014-15 season, but he’s still popular in Portland, as fans warmly cheered him during pregame introductions. … Last season, Lillard averaged 28.3 points in three games against the Mavericks.

NURKIC REACTS TO TECH
The game got chippy down the stretch, with three technical fouls during the final five minutes. The most prominent happened after Blazers’ Jusuf Nurkic and Dallas’ Salah Mejri became entangled under the basket. As the two released, Mejri flew to the ground. After consulting the television monitor, Nurkic was assessed a technical.

“I thought he locked my arm and I didn’t like that. So I let him know — dirty plays — I don’t like that,” Nurkic said. “The refs are going to do what they’re going to do. He got fouled and then he locked my arm on purpose. That’s not good.”

Stitched Womens Basketball Brooklyn Nets Hoodies cheap For Sale

NEW YORK — The Brooklyn Nets had heard enough about not being able to win on the second night of back-to-back games.

Allen Crabbe was tired of hearing his defensive approach questioned.

With the game on the line late in the fourth quarter on Monday night, they collectively answered.

Rookie Jarrett Allen had a career-high 16 points, Crabbe added 15 points and blocked a potential tying shot, and the Nets edged the Orlando Magic 98-95.

“I wish that reporter was here that kept telling us that we were not good on back-to-backs,” coach Kenny Atkinson said jokingly. “I wanted to thank him for motivating us.”

Caris LeVert also had 15 points, while DeMarre Carroll chipped in 14 points, 10 rebounds and the tiebreaking free throw with 34.5 seconds remaining. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 13 for the Nets, who opened up the new year with a win after closing out 2017 with a 1-4 road trip.

The Nets are 3-5 in the back end of a back-to-back.

Aaron Gordon had 20 points and 12 rebounds, and Elfrid Payton added 17 points for an Orlando team that has lost its last seven games on the road.

Bismack Biyombo posted his own double-double with 13 points and a season-high 17 boards for the Magic, who have now lost 11 of their last 12 overall.

Crabbe made two free throws to give the Nets their three-point lead with 18 seconds left. He then followed it by blocking Evan Fournier’s 3-point attempt with seven seconds left, and DJ Augustin missed Orlando’s final chance to tie.

“I’m just trying to take more pride in it. I’m low key tired of hearing people trying to question my defense,” Crabbe said. “Coming over here in this new role there are a lot of expectations now, so I don’t want to be the liability, especially in film the next day.”

The Magic led by as many as eight points in the first half, but couldn’t gain control of the game in a fourth quarter that featured 13 ties and 11 lead changes.

Said Fournier of his failed shot: “I felt (bad) all night long. Could never find my rhythm. So yeah, it wasn’t good enough for sure.”

Orlando squandered a 93-90 lead with 1:51 to go in the fourth after Gordon made a pair of free throws.

Hollis-Jefferson then made two free throws to close the lead to 93-92 with 1:31 remaining and LeVert converted on a three-point play to put the Nets up 95-93. Orlando’s Wes Iwundu then answered with a basket to even it again at 95-all.

Carroll was then fouled under the basket and put the Nets ahead for good.

TIP-INS

Magic: Orlando’s last road win took place Dec. 3 across town from Brooklyn at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks.

Nets: Brooklyn, second in the league with 34.3 3-pointers per game this season, attempted only nine 3s in the first half, making three. They hit 6 of 15 in the second half . Nets lead the lead season series 2-1.

IT GETS TOUGHER

The Magic welcome two of the NBA’s best teams this week at home. First up is a date on Wednesday night with the Houston Rockets, who own the second-best record in the Western Conference. Saturday night it’s a matchup against LeBron James and Cleveland, the defending Eastern Conference champs, who this week get point guard Isaiah Thomas back.
Biyombo, who is averaging 9.5 points, 13 rebounds and 3.3 blocks since stepping into the starting lineup in place of injured center Nikola Vucevic, believes they can still snap out of this slump.

“We need to keep improving. We need to keep playing and we have to remain patient because there’s still a lot left in the season”, he said.

PERFECT WAY TO START THE NEW YEAR

The Nets improved to 9-0 this season when holding their opponent under 100 points. They’re also 7-0 when limiting the opposition’s shooting under 40 percent.

BLOCK PARTY

The Nets recorded a season-high 10 blocked shots. Crabbe had a career-high three rejections. Spencer Dinwiddie and Allen had two apiece.

NBA Kyrie Irving Boston Celtics Authentic Jerseys Cheap Online

Boston Celtics guard Kyrie Irving has been fined $25,000 for using inappropriate language toward a fan, the NBA announced Sunday.

Irving took responsibility for a profane outburst directed at a fan in Philadelphia who yelled at him and referenced LeBron James during Friday’s game against the 76ers.

In a video that circulated on social media after Friday’s game, a fan is heard shouting, “Kyrie, where’s LeBron?” as Celtics players walked down their tunnel to the visitors’ locker room at halftime. Irving appears to look up toward the fan before offering a profane response.

Irving said he talked to the league office about his outburst on Saturday but was waiting to hear if he would be fined. Asked if he had any regrets about the incident, Irving was emphatic he did not.

“Hell no,” said Irving. “[The fan was] man enough to record it on video, then that’s all him. I’m glad he got his [social media] name out there and then, kinda, five seconds of fame and it going viral. That’s the social media platform we live on. I take full responsibility [for] what I said and excuse [to] the kids at home and you move on.”

Later, Irving added: “At the end of the day, we’re human. It’s in heat of the moment, and frustrations arises. We were at halftime, we were down by four, in an environment, a season opener in Philly. Being with a young team like we have here and staying composed, handling that before we go in the locker room and addressing what we have to do in the locker room and going out and handling business and getting the W, that’s really the only thing that matters to me.

“It’s up to the league at this point. But like I said, I’m going to take full responsibility for what I said. I don’t have any regrets for it.”
