The Brooklyn Nets are going to look very different this upcoming season, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t tune into their games. This team is young, versatile, and exciting, and if you want to watch the new era of Brooklyn Nets basketball then I recommend giving this team your undivided attention.
From revenge games for the newcomers to rivalry match-ups, this season should be full of exciting games. No one knows how well this team is going to mesh, but there’s only one way to find out: turn the game on. Here are the three most exciting games for the upcoming season:
Wednesday, October 25th, at Home vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers
Nothing’s better than watching the best players play the game we love, and the Cavaliers provide just that with LeBron James coming into Brooklyn. Who know’s if Isaiah Thomas will be playing in this game, but it’ll be exciting none-the-less with coach Kenny Atkinson looking for a way to stop the greatest player on the planet.
Friday, November 3rd, Away vs. the Los Angeles Lakers
It was hard deciding between the home game against the Lakers and this one, but it’s going to be an exciting game to watch as the new face of the franchise, D’Angelo Russell, looks to show the Staples Center crowd what they lost this off season. A lot has been said about the new point guard for the Nets, but this game will be his chance to prove that he is capable of leading a team.
The matchup to watch for in this game will be Russell against the new Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball. Ball has been getting a lot of hype ever since his amazing Summer League performance, but look for Russell to try and show Magic Johnson that he chose the wrong point guard to lead the Lakers into their new era.
Thursday, December 14th, at Home vs. the New York Knicks
This is an interesting game as both teams aren’t being looked at as playoff contenders, but nothing screams excitement like a rivalry. Despite the limited success from these two teams as of late, this still should be a must-watch game. The fans are sure to come out for the game as they look to see which team will run New York. The Nets are looking for Russell to help the Nets overtake the Knicks as the most popular team in New York, and winning at home should help that movement get going.
