Another game vs a sub-.500 team, another big Nets win. Resting for two days after Saturday's home win vs the Charlotte Bobcats, Brooklyn thoroughly dominated a lifeless Philadelphia 76ers team that fell behind by 13 points...
Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
