The Skinny:?The Nets opened up the game on fire, hitting five of its first seven shots and quickly opening up an 11-2 lead after the game's first three minutes. The Nets suddenly went cold, though. After an early timeout, the Nets combined to shoot just 1-for-15 over the game's next seven minutes. Monta Ellis and Brandon Jennings combined for 15 points in the opening frame and helped the Bucks to a 25-18 lead after the first quarter.

The Bucks attacked the basket and the Nets clearly missed Brook Lopez's presence at the rim. ?The Bucks won the second quarter 19-13 and, behind 18 points from Jennings and 10 points from Ellis, the Bucks led 48-31 at the half. The Nets played a miserable half, scoring just 31 points on 13-for-47 from the field. Deron Williams finished the half shooting 3-for-13 while Joe Johnson shot 0-for-4.

The Bucks opened up the third quarter on a 9-2 run and immediately opened up a 24 point lead. Avery Johnson inserted MarShon Brooks, who helped to slightly turn the game around for the Nets.?For the Bucks, Ellis turned in a very powerful quarter, scoring eight points and two assists and helped the Bucks open its lead up to 29 points, 68-39. The Nets closed the lead to 15 points, but never got any closer and trailed by 20, 75-55 heading into the fourth quarter.

On Friday night, the Brooklyn Nets were defeated by the Golden State Warriors by a final score of 109-102.

The Skinny: The Nets opened up the game rather aggressively and both Deron Williams and Joe Johnson were feeling it early. Johnson opened up the game scoring 15 first quarter points and together, he and Williams combined to score 22 of the team's 31 points in the game's opening frame. The Warriors kept pace, led by eight points from Klay Thompson.

Ahead 31-24 to open the second quarter, coach Avery Johnson went with his reserves?C.J. Watson, Keith Bogans, Jerry Stackhouse, Mirza Teletovic and Reggie Evans. Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry played relatively well during the opening minutes of the second and helped to spark their team on a 7-0 to to close the gap to 46-45 with 4:35 to go in the half.

One statistic stood out from the rest in the Nets' Dec. 4 contest with the Oklahoma City Thunder. It wasn't the 60 percent clip that the Thunder converted from the field, and it wasn't the Nets' 15 offensive rebounds.

It wasn't even the 30-for-34 shooting that the Thunder did from the free-throw line.

Deron Williams

The Brooklyn Nets return to action in Barclays Center tonight at 7:00 P.M. when Deron Williams and company play host to Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Nets are coming off of a loss to the Miami Heat on Dec. 1 and have the rare opportunity to play back-to-back games against the Eastern and Western Conference Champions.

If the Nets want a victory tonight, here are some keys...

Deron Williams has had a tough 16 games this year and is playing through a plethora of injuries right now but he won't use them as am excuse for his poor play.

Poor play for Williams is still above average and All-star quality for most and anyone who watches him play knows he runs the Brooklyn Nets and even with his poor shooting he is leading in many ways that help the team win.

One thing you love about superstars is that they are never satisfied with how they are playing and Williams is one of those superstars.

The Brooklyn Nets went into Miami last night with two things in mind, first exact some revenge from a previous blowout to the Heat, and secondly to show the Heat that they will be a team to be dealt with come playoff time.

The Nets played good basketball in the first half, but in the the second half, the ball movement was not as good and the Heat eventually put the upstart Nets away as the Nets could not hit a single shot in the fourth quarter.

Even John Schuhmann noticed during the first half...

The Brooklyn Nets are currently 10-4 and second placed in the NBA's Eastern Conference. To say they have done well through 14 games would be a bit of an understatement. To what can be attribute the team's early success?

Our good friend, Devin Kharpertian of TheBrooklynGame.com?is doing a weekly Nets power ranking for New York Magazine. It's pretty cool. Below are excepts from the ranking, check it out to see who Kharpertian ranks number one this week.

Talk about a dubious distinction? Reggie Evans was the first player to be warned for flopping and now the Nets are the first team to have two unique individuals cited by the NBA for antics detrimental to the league.

You make the call on Wallace... Was this a flop?

In case you missed it, during Wednesday night's battle up in Boston against the Celtics, with 29.5 seconds remaining in the first half and the Nets leading the Celtics by a score of 51-35, Kris Humphries fouled Kevin Garnett. Humphries made slight contact with Garnett's face and Garnett fell to the hardwood.

Rajon Rondo took exception and attacked Kris Humphries. The skirmish ensued which resulted in three ejections. Humphries and Rondo were both tossed for their role in the brawl and Gerald Wallace and Kevin Garnett were each given technical fouls.

Unfortunately for the Nets, Gerald Wallace picked up a technical foul earlier in the game for arguing a non-call and picked up his second technical during the skirmish. Both he and Humphries were ejected for the Nets. For the Celtics, Rondo was tossed and Garnett was called for a technical foul.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. ? After the Brooklyn Nets starting unit showed chemistry and cohesion that was hardly indicative of a team playing its first game together, an inspection of the game's box score showed a rather conspicuous "DNP - Coach's Decision" beside Tyshawn Taylor's name.

Afterwards, he spoke to SNY.tv about his progress and when he hopes to make his debut.

Last season, Jeremy Lin performed well in a handful of NBA games before gracing the cover of Sports Illustrated... Deron Williams' track record and the excitement over the Nets' move to Brooklyn got him on the cover before he even as much as had to suit up for preseason game at Barclays Center.

He's probably still deserving, though.

According to at least one oddsmaker, yes...

Via Alex Raskin of NJ.com...

"The latest odds out of Bovada have the Brooklyn Nets with the eight-best chance to win an NBA Title (30-1) and the Knicks in a tie for 10th?(35-1) with the Memphis Grizzlies and Indiana Pacers."

It's no secret that we feel as though Kris Humphries' contributions goes largely overlooked. And although Tim Bontemps?our friend who covers the Nets for the New York Post?doesn't say that Humphries is a top-five power forward, we do think it's a fair question to ask.

Bontemps points out, among other things, that Humphries was one of five players to average a double-double last season. Who are the other four?

?Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, Kevin Love, and Blake Griffin.

Barclays Center

Barclays Center is the NBA's newest arena, while Madison Square Garden is probably its most famous. Inevitably, being that the arenas are in the same city, comparisons were bound to arise. Here's a pretty good piece discussing the food, location, and celebrities you're likely to see on site.

It's pretty good.

Deron Williams

Earlier, we posted about "Nets Training Days," a feature that ESPN recently taped and aired today. In it, Mark Schwarz interviewed Avery Johnson, Joe Johnson, Brook Lopez, Kris Humphries, and other Nets players about the franchise's move to Brooklyn and what it means for the community. ?It starts off with a "look back" at Brooklyn's pro sports history and what it means to the people of Brooklyn to again have a pro team to root for.

But it was Deron Williams, again, who said something noteworthy.

Barclays Center

One of the things that everyone has been talking about is the seeming lack of public parking facilities in the nearby vicinity of Barclays Center.

For those that aren't familiar with the area, Atlantic Terminal and most of Flatbush Avenue is very commercial, while the area on Atlantic Avenue closest to Barclays is fairly residential.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.?? After practice on Monday, while Deron Williams was meeting with the media, the topic of Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban was brought up. The Dallas Mavericks were the Nets' only real threat to lure Williams away when he was a free-agent last summer. But when the day came for the Mavericks to sit down and discuss their long-term plan with Williams, Cuban was absent.

When asked whether he took offense to the fact that Cuban was absent for such an important meeting, Williams put the situation into perspective and had some very interesting thoughts to share.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J ??After holding two-a-day practices for the past week, coach Avery Johnson is giving all of his players the day off on Tuesday. But before that,?he will be bringing back eight players for a second session on Monday evening.

The common thread between Tyshawn Taylor, MarShon Brooks, Josh Childress, Mirza Teletovic, Andray Blatche, Dennis Scott, Tornike Shengelia and James Mays is that they're either young guys or guys trying to make the team. And they're the eight guys that will be participating in Monday's second session.

Keith Bogans

The depth of the Brooklyn Nets' bench is something that we've spoken about before, and as the team continues to practice and get a feel for one another, it's becoming more and more clear that the Nets have quite a few players worthy of getting good minutes.

That's a good problem for any coach to have.

Tyson Chandler

One of the stories that won't die is Shaquille O'Neal's seemingly claiming that Brook Lopez is better than Dwight Howard. Yes, we fully understand that we are helping to douse the flames here a bit... But wouldn't you want to know if an opposing player weighed in?

A lot of people have weighed in on this debate. But Tyson Chandler, the starting center of the New York Knicks, has an opinion worth noting.

This is rather exciting. For those that may have missed it, the Nets are going to be splitting time between New Jersey and Brooklyn.

Most of the team's personnel and players maintain residences in Manhattan and Northern New Jersey, and the team's practice facility?at least for the foreseeable future?will remain in East Rutherford at the PNY Center.

But something special is set to happen tomorrow...

?lkan Karaman

Bojan Bogdanovic (31st overall in 2011) and Ilkan Karaman (57th overall in 2012) are a pair of European prospects recently selected by the Brooklyn Nets, and both got to test their skills against some NBA competition.

There are high hopes for each of these youngsters, and if they're anywhere near as good as Mirza Teletovic seems to be, they could contribute meaningfully to the Nets sooner rather than later.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. ??Andray Blatche tweaked his back on Wednesday morning and sat out the second half of practice as a precautionary measure. Afterward, the Nets officially declared that he was suffering from back spasms.

Both Blatche and Brooklyn Nets head coach Avery Johnson said the injury was no big deal. Coach Johnson also said he thought that Blatche would be available to practice on Thursday, while Blatche said that he hoped to be back for Wednesday's second practice. Fortunately, the big man was able to return and participate in Wednesday afternoon's practice session, so clearly, the injury isn't very serious. Still, the true test will be to see how it responds tomorrow and Friday.
