Chauncey Billups on Shaedon Sharpe: “What I love most about him is there’s no moment that’s too big for him.” – 12:56 AM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
What a night from Ben Simmons:
15 points
13 rebounds
7 assists
6/6 shooting
Knocked down 3/4 free throws when Portland intentionally fouled down the stretch. Great defense on Dame.
Really impressive showing. – 12:55 AM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Vaughn thinks Simmons cleared another hurdle tonight by knocking down 3-of-4 free throws down the stretch when the Blazers tried the Hack-a-Ben strategy. He believes Simmons’ confidence will only grow from here. – 12:53 AM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
That’s the kind of win that goes a long way towards Kevin Durant’s trust in his teammates.
KD had a bad offensive foul, missed FT, atrocious foul on Nurkic, and missed game-winner.
His teammates picked him up big time. Everyone needs that sometimes. – 12:47 AM
StatMuse @statmuse
KD tonight:
35 PTS
8 REB
13-22 FG
Averaging 30/8/6 on 54 FG% in his last 10 games. pic.twitter.com/p78AB9ZWd212:44 AM

Kevin Pelton @kpelton
Per @Stathead, Royce O’Neale joined Elvin Hayes, Mark Jackson, Larry Bird and Goran Dragic as the fifth player in their database to record a triple-double of precisely 11 points, rebounds and assists:

These are the kind of wins Brooklyn needs to get for management to be able to confidently invest future assets to improve.
Not one or two. They need to string a bunch together.
Kyrie coming back, Ben improving. We’ll see. – 12:42 AM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Blazers lost a close game at home? pic.twitter.com/x7JgXsgyf412:42 AM
Anthony Puccio @APOOCH
We’ll see if they can stay consistent. Ben needs to maintain this level of aggressiveness & they need to stay trusting role players like Yuta.
… Kyrie back Sunday too. – 12:41 AM
StatMuse @statmuse
Nets are 5-3 without Kyrie.
He’s back for their next game. pic.twitter.com/myFan9DmqH12:40 AM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Best win of the season for the Nets.
KD and Simmons give Yuta a high five and a hug as the Nets’ bench celebrates together. – 12:40 AM
StatMuse @statmuse
Yuta Watanabe tonight:
20 PTS
7 REB
5-7 3P
Shooting 56% from three this season. – 12:40 AM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Final: Nets 109, Blazers 107
Durant: 35 pts, 13/22 shooting
Watanabe: 20 pts, 7 reb, 5/7 from 3
Simmons: 15 pts, 12 reb, 7 ast
KD carries early on. Ben Simmons plays his best game as a Net. Yuta Watanabe clutch as can be down the stretch. Royce tip-in.
Outstanding win. – 12:39 AM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Nets 109, Blazers 107: FINAL. 25 points, 11 assists for @Damian Lillard. 24 points, 2 assists for @Anfernee Simons. 20 points, 2 rebounds for @Shaedon Sharpe. 17 points, 8 rebounds for @Jusuf Nurkic. – 12:39 AM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Royce O’Neale played 369 games with the @Utah Jazz and never recorded a triple-double (no Jazz player did in that stretch.)
He just recorded an 11 point, 11 rebound, 11 assist triple-double in his 15th game with the @Brooklyn Nets, including the game winning put back. – 12:39 AM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
That’s off the Nets (I think) and they put one tick on the clock, which is ball game if I’m not mistaken. – 12:38 AM
Nate Duncan @NateDuncanNBA
Why were Dame and Ant out there for a defense only possession? O’Neale went over them for the winning tip. – 12:37 AM
Anthony Puccio @APOOCH
Ben Simmons had his best game of the season… by far. 15 points, 12 rebounds & 7 assists on 6-of-6 shooting.
He’s shot 100% (min. 5 FGA) in 2 other games throughout his career:
– Nov. 30, 2018
– May 6, 2021 (Game 1 ATL) – 12:37 AM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Royce O’Neale’s first triple-double comes in clutch fashion as the tip-in clinched the Nets’ win over Portland. Kyrie is set to return on Sunday. – 12:37 AM
Bobby Manning @RealBobManning
How you feel about Royce O’Neale now, KD? – 12:36 AM
Haralabos Voulgaris @haralabob
Portland having Simons in there for a last second defensive possession was probably not ideal. – 12:36 AM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Royce O’Neale just tipped in a KD miss that may have just sealed a Nets win — and a triple double. A clutch play.
O’Neale has 11 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists in 37 minutes. – 12:36 AM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
Need a three to tie? Go to Nurkic inside. #Ripcity pic.twitter.com/KTMoQguXuO12:35 AM

Brooklyn Nets @BrooklynNets
ROYCE O’NEALE – 12:35 AM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Durant misses but O’Neal gets the tip in to go with 0.7 seconds to play – 12:35 AM
Kevin Pelton @kpelton
What if you made the whole Blazers’ season out of buzzer beaters? – 12:33 AM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
That is so mind-numbingly bad by KD. – 12:33 AM
David Locke @DLocke09
Who had Royce O’Neale as first former Jazz player to get a triple double – 9 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists tonight. – 12:32 AM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Durant at the line, misses the first, so the Blazers should have a chance to at least tie this one with 14.9 seconds to play – 12:32 AM
Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
It will never stop bothering me that Lakers Twitter seemed to be more aware of Yuta Watanabe this summer than the Lakers. – 12:32 AM

Ben Simmons tonight:

7 AST
6-6 FG
First double-double in over 600 days. pic.twitter.com/IqpjzqSotF12:31 AM

Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
Let’s do the poll. Would you trade Jermai Grant and Anfernee Simons for Kevin Durant straight up? – 12:31 AM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Simmons just fouled out on an over the back call. The Nets’ bench is heated — Simmons couldn’t believe it.
Simmons finishes with 15 points, 12 rebounds and seven assists in 32 minutes. His best game of the year. – 12:31 AM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Ben Simmons fouls out with 15 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists in 32 minutes off the bench – 12:30 AM

Erik Slater @erikslater_
This Yuta Watanabe performance has been insanely impressive for so many reasons.
Clutch three-point shooting, huge rebounds, running the floor.
Just played outstanding defense on Dame in the final minute to force a miss. – 12:27 AM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Winslow gets the steal, but Dame’s three on the other end is off, Nets get the rebound, Blazers finally get back in transition and Brooklyn calls a timeout with 5 seconds on the shot clock and 31.8 on the game clock up 106-103. – 12:27 AM
Ramona Shelburne @ramonashelburne
The Trail Blazers just went to the hack on Ben Simmons late in the 4th quarter here. He hit the first two FTs… ! – 12:22 AM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Blazers trying the Hack-a-Ben but Simmons walks to the line and confidently knocks down two free throws. Another important step for him in his biggest game of the season to date. – 12:21 AM
James Ham @James_HamNBA
Stacking wins. After blowing out the Nets, the Kings found more resistance Thursday night when Gregg Popovich and the Spurs rolled into town. The Kings rallied late to pick up a 130-112 win. Here are 6 quick thoughts from the fifth straight Kings win. – 12:20 AM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Simmons, intentionally fouled with 3:28 left, makes the first free throw. #Trailblazers take a timeout to further ice him. This feels like a corner there to be turned. #Nets12:20 AM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Portland going to hack-a-Ben here.
First time we’ve seen this. – 12:19 AM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
If I’m not mistaken, that’s the first intentional foul (not end of game edition) of the year for Portland – 12:19 AM
Kevin Pelton @kpelton
The Blazers intentionally fouled Ben Simmons with 3:28 left in the fourth quarter of a three-point game. #NBAhacks12:19 AM

Dame has been bothered by Simmons all night. Not getting to his spots. – 12:17 AM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Yuta Watanabe has scored a season-high 17 points.
Watanabe has connected on a career-high 4-of-6 from 3-point range. – 12:15 AM

Casey Holdahl @CHold
Nets on a 10-0 run — and it could be way worse, Blazers haven’t scored in nearly 4 minutes and don’t have a FG the last 6 minutes — to take a 100-95 lead with 4:51 to play – 12:15 AM

Jerami Grant just blocked a KD fadeaway. Not too often that happens. – 12:11 AM
Chris Palmer @ChrisPalmerNBA
Portland is off to a great start. But would you trade Jerami Grant and Anfernee Simons straight up for Kevin Durant to become a legit contender? – 12:08 AM
StatMuse @statmuse
Longest streak of 25-point games to start a season:
16 — MJ in 1988-89
16 — KD this season

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Yuta has been great tonight off the bench for the Nets. He’s got 14 points and six rebounds in 22 minutes. He’s also been able to space the floor for his teammates and continues to make the most of his time on the floor. – 11:57 PM
Barbara Barker @meanbarb
KD has 27 points, reaching 25 in all of the #Nets first 16 games. That’s the longest such run since Michael Jordan in 1988-89. Up next? Rick Barry who had 25 in a row in 1966-67. – 11:55 PM

27 points through three quarters for @Kevin Durant 🪣 pic.twitter.com/6Tg6XbQKEp11:55 PM

A new career high for @Shaedon Sharpe with 18 points on 7-8 shooting from the field and 4-4 from the three-point line. The way this one is going, gotta get him the ball. – 11:54 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
KD has 27 points, reaching 25 in all of the #Nets first 16 games. That’s the longest such run since Michael Jordan in 1988-89. The last player with 17 straight was Rick Barry with 25 in a row in 1966-67. – 11:54 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
After playing his best game of the season in Tuesday’s blowout loss to the Kings — Ben Simmons is playing even better tonight. He’s 6-for-6 from the field and has eight rebounds and five assists in 24 minutes. – 11:52 PM

Yuta Watanabe is really everywhere this game. Offensive rebounds, defense, running the floor, three-point shooting, passing.

Two blatant missed calls from the refs on KD.
Complete momentum shifters. Awful. – 11:42 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Vaughn was standing up for KD there. KD thought he got fouled on the last possession and a couple possessions before that. He’s been chirping at ref James Williams — and instead of giving KD a tech, he gave one to Vaughn. – 11:42 PM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
Kevin Durant is the 19th player in NBA history to score 26,000 points. Only other currently rostered player to reach 26K is LeBron James. If Durant scores 25 pts vs POR, he’ll join Michael Jordan as the only NBA players in past 55 yrs to score 25+ in their teams first 16 games – 11:41 PM
Eric Pincus @EricPincus
ICYMI: After my new colleague’s (@Chris Haynes ) excellent interview with Kevin Durant @BleacherReport – I thought through the “what if KD asks for a trade again?” question with how I’d see that market shaking out: bleacherreport.com/articles/10055…11:41 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
There’s a palpable buzz in the building every time Shaedon Sharpe checks in. – 11:40 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Two poorly timed turnovers from KD.
Ball is not bouncing the Nets way tonight. – 11:39 PM
Kevin Pelton @kpelton
Royce O’Neale (nine points, eight assists and seven rebounds) is on triple-double watch. The eight assists already tie his career high, as well as his high in college at Baylor. – 11:35 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Ben Simmons (10 points) has reached double figures for the second straight game.
Following up his best performance of the season with an even better showing. – 11:33 PM
Aaron J. Fentress @AaronJFentress
The Blazers have committed just 6 turnovers. So far. – 11:33 PM

Second straight game for Ben Simmons in double digits after scoring in single digits his first nine games. – 11:32 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Ben Simmons just got an oop from the dunker spot.
May have been the first one all season. – 11:31 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
With that basket, Kevin Durant (19 points) is the 19th player in NBA history to score 26,000 career points.
The only other player currently on an NBA roster to reach the 26,000-point mark is LeBron James. – 11:31 PM

With that basket, Kevin Durant became the 19th player in #NBA history to score 26,000 points. #Nets11:29 PM

Blazers are shooting 11/24 (46%) from three.
Nets three-point defense has been brutal this season. – 11:29 PM

Ben Simmons playing with Claxton in place of Sumner early in the 3rd. – 11:27 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
On the other end, Shaedon Sharpe is impressive. He’s hitting pullup 3s, throwing down lobs, giving the #Nets a tough time with 15 points on 6-of-7 shooting. – 11:15 PM
Brooklyn Nets @BrooklynNets
Made the most of the second chance pic.twitter.com/LQ1zNUdzyu11:12 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Ben Simmons has eight points, four assists, four boards and is 4-of-4 from the field. The #Nets trail 61-57 at the half, but this is an auspicious sign for Simmons, who actually had a decent game two nights ago. – 11:11 PM
Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
Ben Simmons just had his best offensive half of the season. But the Nets have to get another big to better use him defensively. Having him defend a guy like Nurkic is wasting his talents and asking for fouls or injury. – 11:10 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Incredible half for Joe Harris. Rough half for Seth Curry.
Nets have not been able to get both of them going together this year. – 11:08 PM
Casey Holdahl @CHold
Blazers 61, Nets 57: halftime. 17 points, 5 assists for @Damian Lillard. 15 points, 2 rebounds for @Shaedon Sharpe. 9 points, 6 rebounds for @Jusuf Nurkic. – 11:08 PM

Ben Simmons is everywhere – 10:58 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Royce O’Neale has matched his career-high with eight assists (done twice previously, both earlier this season).
There’s 4 minutes left in the 1st half. – 10:58 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Maybe Ben Simmons found something during that caning the #Nets took in Sacramento. He’s definitely looked not only more spry, but more aggressive and willing to attack. – 10:58 PM
Kenny Beecham @KOT4Q
The body control on Shaedon Sharpe is special – 10:56 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
The Nets offense when they had success of late was predicated on getting KD the ball in the mid-post.
The good teams since have made those entries very difficult. – 10:56 PM

It appears the Portland Trail Blazers made good use of their first round pick – 10:56 PM

Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Ben Simmons has six points already and is actually looking for his offense around the rim. Gives the Nets a completely different look when that happens.
The problem for the Nets tonight is that they have no answer for Shaedon Sharpe. – 10:49 PM

Sean Highkin @highkin
Sharpe has passed up a couple of shots he shouldn’t have, and somebody must have gotten on him about it because he’s drained two straight threes since then. Needs to just shoot it whenever he’s open. – 10:45 PM

Jakob scoreless after tallying a career-high 31 against Portland.
Pop pre-game on Poeltl’s offensive production:
“We need to have that. We have to find ways to score. We don’t have one-on-one players and we don’t really have post-up players, so you got to score somehow.” – 10:44 PM
Sean Highkin @highkin
This is the best Ben Simmons has looked in a long time. – 10:44 PM
Meghan Triplett @Meghan_Triplett
Did you all see that move from Ben Simmons though?!? – 10:43 PM
Erik Slater @erikslater_
Good sign to see Ben Simmons aggressive again early.
Next step seems to be finishing up toward the rim rather than floaters or turnarounds.
Not sure if the lift is there though. – 10:41 PM

Anyone else annoyed with the black and teal unis the Blazers have sported the last 2 games?
One game in Charlotte Hornets attire is OK, I guess.
Blazers have been red, black and white for 52 years. I see no reason to change.

Jacque Vaughn on dropping Kyrie Irving into the mix & can they keep playing the same way: “There’s uncertainty there, for sure. My approach is the train is going to keep moving. And that train is playing hard playing together, being a team: That’s going to continue.” #Nets8:35 PM

Chauncey Billups calls KD a “matchup nightmare.” Says when he misses a shot, it’s more because he just missed rather than the defense. #Nets8:25 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Asked Chauncey Billups if he’s seen a team w/ as much dramas the #Nets: “No, other than last time we played. It was different issues, different people. It’s always just something. Its just tough to get going in a situation like. I never played with that type of dysfunction.” #NBA8:24 PM

NBA League Pass Game of the Day: Nets at Blazers
Last time out, Brooklyn gave up 150+ to Sacramento, then Kevin Durant actually admitted he’s playing with a subpar supporting cast. Will the role players have something to prove against a solid Portland squad? pic.twitter.com/NmAtlwcZWD6:13 PM

Sarah Todd @NBASarah
I just hate that I see the news that Kyrie is coming back and I roll my eyes and think, “wonder how long it is til he does something else despicable or calls a reporter a pawn or worse.”
I wish I didn’t think that. I wish I had more hope than that. But I don’t. – 6:10 PM
Sam Vecenie @Sam_Vecenie
We’re talking Portland Trail Blazers now, and why I love their wing depth. Mo is still concerned about the defense’s sustainability. Let’s chat about it!

Shams on Kyrie’s return:
“The Nets and league say that both sides are happy with what Irving has done throughout the process, especially given the number of community leaders he has met with.”
Adds a source said that Irving chose to go “above and beyond” what was asked of him. – 6:04 PM
