Brooklyn briefly snapped an eight-game losing streak with a win over Chicago early last week but it finished with a pair of close road losses: at Cleveland and at Sacramento. The Sacramento loss came in overtime.
Now bear with me for a moment as I divulge. Russell Westbrook had missed the most shots in the NBA this season, 102 more than the second guy on the list, Bradley Beal. Westbrook misses almost 12 shots per game, on average. Beal misses exactly 8 per game.
D’Angelo Russell has missed about half of the Nets’ games this season so his total misses are nowhere near the top of the leaderboard. Had he not had knee surgery way back in the second month of the season, he very well may be though.
Russell averages 8.2 misses per game. His 42 percent shooting from the field and 29 percent from three are way worse than Beal’s numbers. The field goal percentage is worse than Westbrook’s, though the still out-shoots Westbrook from deep.
This is the guy the Nets gave up assets to get and is still presumably their main building block going forward. So D’Angelo Russell’s efficiency should be Brooklyn’s primary concern.
Los Angeles Clippers
The only thing better than hosting the Nets is hosting the Knicks the game before. That’s what the Clippers got to do on Friday night and they, of course, blew them out to bounce back from their loss to the Rockets.
DeAndre Jordan was a point shy of a 20-20 game, Lou Williams scored 21 off the bench and the Clips turned the Knicks over 17 times.
Danilo Gallinari has been out for a few games. Well, he’s been out for more than that but he’s been out for a few games with his most recent injury. Originally, it was thought to be a hand bruise but it’s been revealed that it’s a fracture so he’ll be shut down, once again, for at least a few weeks. Don’t hold your breathe on a return.
Avery Bradley also remains out with a sports hernia and might get surgery that would end his season. He hasn’t made that decision yet.
Meanwhile, CJ Williams, who started the Clippers’ last game against the Knicks, won’t be available to play any more NBA games this season, unless the Clippers give him a full NBA contract, instead of the two-way one he has been on between the Clips and their G-League affiliate. The same is the case for Tyron Wallace.
