Brooklyn Nets guard Joe Harris has hinted at the fact he'd like to play for the organization past the 2019 season. Yeah, definitely! Why wouldnt you? Harris said when asked if he wants to stay with the Nets. Harris goes on to say that he has gotten close with his teammates and knows what this team is capable of doing when full healthy. The Nets have his Bird Rights, but Harris has earned a significant pay raise after his play over the last few seasons.
Brooklyn Nets shooting guard/small forward Joe Harris (ankle) will miss Thursdays contest against the Golden State Warriors. Dealing with a sprained left ankle, Harris absence coincides with the likely return of Garrett Temple (ankle), who could ultimately see an increased role without the sharpshooting Harris in the mix. Taking his shot attempts out of the equation, the duo of Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris Levert are likely to see an even larger offensive workload, which could give them increased DFS attention against a paltry Warriors defense.
Brooklyn Nets center DeAndre Jordan made a rare start on Sunday against the Bulls and had a very productive game with 11 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, and three blocks. He produced a 4-for-5 shooting performance and went a solid 3-for-4 at the line. Jarrett Allen had 11 points, six rebounds and one block in a bench role. Jordan will go for a third consecutive double-double on Tuesday against the Lakers. It's a tough matchup for him against JaVale McGee and Dwight Howard, whose defensive work has limited opposing centers to only 19.9 points per 48 minutes this season. The Lakers also boast the third-best rebounding percentage in the league.
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Joe Harris shot a very good 8-for-12 from the field on his way to 23 points in Sunday's win over Chicago. He had a 3-for-7 record from deep while shooting 4-for-4 at the line. Harris also collected a pair of rebounds and had one assist. He has now scored 20-plus points in back-to-back games, after managing a total of just 23 points in the first two games of the month. Extending the streak will be extremely difficult though, as Brooklyn will play the Lakers next. Harris had only six points on 2-for-6 shooting in this season's first matchup with the Lakers.
Brooklyn Nets guards Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris Levert led the team to a 110-107 victory over Chicago on Sunday, combining for 47 points. Dinwiddie had a game-high 24 points and LeVert went for 23 points, shooting a very good 4-for-6 from downtown. Dinwiddie did most of his damage from the free-throw line, going 14-for-15. He shot 4-for-9 from the field while adding six assists, three rebounds, and one steal. LeVert had six boards with five assists, one steal, and one block. The duo will go up against the Lakers next on Tuesday, which is a difficult matchup for both.
