The Nets Annihilate the Cavs

image-1

After a 20-point loss to the Indiana Pacers, the Nets look to get back on the right track. They played the Cleveland Cavaliers who also have their share of struggles, off to a 0-3 start of the season.

Both teams came out aggressive and motivated to gather a win for their team. In the first quarter the Nets looked focused and offensively in tune; D’Angelo Russell dished out assists, while being efficient as a distributor, he finished the night with just 1 turnover. Russell attempted more shots than he has in previous games showing that he chose to be aggressive for tonight’s game. Joe Harris added his efficiency behind the 3-point line, as the Nets outscore the Cavs 24 to 17 to end the first quarter.

As the 2nd quarter started, the Cavs looked to make a comeback with Jordan Clarkson leading the way. The Nets took a backseat offensively and began to turn over the ball causing the Cavs to tie up the game 45-45 to end the first half.

The Brooklyn Nets kicked the 3rd quarter off with tenacity and energy as they went on runs that the Cavs would not be able to keep up with. The Nets outscored the Cavs 38-17. Joe Harris continued to knock down treys, Jarrett Allen worked hard in the paint, and Jared Dudley knocked down timely shots. The Nets made sure the Cavs would not get any space to close the gap on their lead.

The Nets continued their annihilation as they went up 23 points in the middle of the 4th quarter. Unable to keep up with the Nets’ pace, the Cavaliers offensive struggles continued.

Russell finished with a season high of 18 points, and 8 assists. Joe Harris adds 16 points, 4 of 5 from 3-point territory. Shabazz Napier makes his season debut as he adds 8 points to the Nets monstrous win. LeVert and Allen combine for 20 points and 14 boards, and Ed Davis gives a solid double double, 10 points and 10 rebounds.

The Nets defeat the Cavaliers 102-86
