The Brooklyn Nets (4-2) beat the Cleveland Cavaliers (2-6), tonight at the Barclays Center from Brooklyn, NY.
What a great start to a new era in the borough of Brooklyn for the Nets. They are off to a 4-2 start to the regular season.
"Brooklyn's backcourt" is the new nickname representing PG Deron Williams and SG Joe Johnson who have been playing very well together in their first six games together as teammates.
Deron Williams and Joe Johnson both scored over 20 plus points against the Cavaliers and look for these two score over twenty plus points all season long.
Deron Williams will be an all-star this season when the all-star game comes around. He dropped 26 points and made 10 assists to get a double-double.
Joe Johnson who has a chance to make the all-star game as well scored 25 points, made 6 assists and grabbed 5 rebounds.
Brook Lopez played like a true center in tonight''s game by scoring 23 points, grabbed 7 rebounds and blocked 4 shots.
Kris Humphries scored 12 points and grabbed 6 rebounds.
If Deron Williams and Joe Johnson can play very well together throughout the season. They will make the playoffs easy and will clinch the 4th or 5th spot.
They are starting to change my mind already believe it or not.
The Brooklyn Nets will host the Boston Celtics this Thursday night in the Barclays Center at 8:00 pm on TNT.
