The Brooklyn Nets are looking upbeat after Kyrie Irving returned to the lineup after the team cleared his suspension. Brooklyn is 8-2 in their last ten games and have won their last four straight. Last night the Nets beat the Washington Wizards on the road 112-100. On Saturday, the Nets lost eight key players in the game and escaped with a 136-133 victory over the Pacers. They’ve been finding a way to win games in recent fashion, but they can obviously add a few more pieces to the roster to ensure some losing ends.
Brooklyn scored a lot in their team. Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are the leading scorers for the Nets during the playoffs. One glaring issue for the Nets this season is their low attendance. They are constantly adding to the glass. The Nets don’t have a true center on their team who can physically get on the board and control the game in that way. Don’t count out Nets GM Sean Marks for a move before the trade deadline.

Brooklyn can make moves before the trade deadline to improve the roster.
According to NBA analyst “Scoop B” Robinson, the Nets sat out some of their key players against the Pacers on Sunday, according to Net GM Sean Marks’ tactical strategy. The trade deadline looms in February. On the deadline last year, Marks sent James Harden to the 76ers for Ben Simmons, Seth Curry and two first-round picks.
“Don’t look at the nets. [and think] Because they played those eight guys like Shane Marks didn’t have something on his hands,… “You don’t know what’s in the cards, but at the end of the day the Nets were showing talent on that team and that’s the talk of the Nets. Land” – Scope B. Robinson
Don’t count on Sean Marks to overhaul this Nets roster midseason. Adding a good C/PF guy who can play off the bench and control the boards for Brooklyn would be a huge piece.
