Kyrie Irving traded to the Dallas Mavericks for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith and picks

The Kyrie Irving era in Brooklyn has come to a close with the Nets trading him and Markieff Morris to the Dallas Mavericks for Spencer Dinwiddie, Dorian Finney-Smith, and draft picks. This trade comes on the heels of Irving asking for a trade on Friday afternoon after he and the Nets couldn’t agree on a contract extension. The Locked on Nets guys take a look at Kyrie’s time in Brooklyn and what got things to this place. They also look at the package that came back and what it could mean for the team and Kevin Durant both short and long-term. It’s a packed podcast on a ground-shifting day in the NBA and for Brooklyn.

Without Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, Cam Thomas transcends in win Nets win over the Wizards

The Nets came into the game against the Washington Wizards without Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Ben Simmons. With the Kyrie trade request, the team is in a state of flux. But that mattered little to Cam Thomas, Edmond Sumner, and the rest of the crew who put the team on their backs and carried out a win. Thomas was unreal, scoring 44 points on 16-23 shooting. Sumner scored 29 while Nic Claxton came up big and Patty Mills hit big shots. It was one of the cooler wins of the year for Brooklyn who still go into the trade deadline with numerous questions.

Kyrie Irving leads a full team effort in a Nets win over the Lakers

The Nets came into this game without Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons. But the Lakers didn’t have LeBron James or Anthony Davis. It made for both teams having to run some different rotations, and for the Nets they got a full-team effort behind Kyrie Irving. Irving played 39 minutes and dropped 26 points in the win while Patty Mills and Cam Thomas put in big games off the bench with 21 points apiece. Jacque Vaughn elected to switch things up in this game and it worked against a depleted Lakers squad. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Kyrie Irving and Nic Claxton anchor the Brooklyn Nets full team effort, notch ninth straight win over the Knicks!

The Brooklyn Nets put their best foot forward on Saturday night, beating the cross-town Knicks 122-115. As has been the case for much of the run without Kevin Durant, the Nets have needed big performances from Kyrie Irving who took over in the fourth. It was also the supporting cast for Brooklyn that helped the Nets get out to an early lead and ultimately put away Julius Randle and the Knicks. With the struggling Ben Simmons out of the line-up with knee soreness Nic Claxton continued his dominant defense while also setting up teammates on the offensive end, dishes out six assists to go along with his double-double. Consistent and timely shooting from Joe Harris, Royce O'Neal and Seth Curry led the way in support - knocking down 55% from deep. The Nets have been inconsistent without Kevin Durant but on Saturday night at Barclay's they found their rhythm and will hopefully build on win as the All-Star break approaches.

Embarrassing loss for the Nets. Kyrie Irving and Nic Claxton shine, Ben Simmons hurt

The Nets were on the back-the-back following the loss to the Sixers on Wednesday. But they ended up losing to the Pistons in embarrassing fashion. Kyrie Irving, Nic Claxton, and even Edmond Sumner were efficient and combined for 91 points, but the rest of the team did nothing. Brooklyn wasn’t able to get stops on the defensive end and couldn’t muster much outside of those three. Plus, Ben Simmons left the game with knee soreness and didn’t return.

Kevin Durant injury update plus NBA trade deadline looms with Naz Reid and Serge Ibaka connected to Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Nets are on a two game winning streak heading into their Wednesday night matchup with Philadelphia, and also received a win off the court. Kevin Durant is progressing in his recovery and with running and on-court activity ramping up, should be near a return when re-evaluated in two weeks. The state of his MCL recovery will determine if Nets fans see him before or after the All-Star break. Adam then discusses the NBA trade-deadline and names being connected to the Brooklyn Nets. One young impending Free Agent is Minnesota Timberwolves Naz Reid. At just 23 years old this would be a both and option for Sean Marks adding a physical backup for Nic Claxton in both the short and long term. However with the Clippers among a handful of suitors the question will be if the Nets can win a low-level bidding war. Serge Ibaka, who has ties to Kevin Durant going back to Oklahoma City, has also been mentioned as a possible trade target. Age and injury are among the concerns with the 33 year old veteran, but Adam notes how his skillset would certainly offer the Nets a stretch five many believe they desperately lack.

No Kyrie Irving for the Brooklyn Nets Ben Simmons can't find offensive game in loss to Spurs

The Nets have plenty to accomplish in the absence of Kevin Durant. On Tuesday night Brooklyn was also without Kyrie Irving, which set the stage for the supporting cast to step up. Unfortunately, it was a mixed bag of inconsistency and sloppy play that certainly provided all those 2021 vibes Nets fans do not want to see resurface. The starting unit was ineffective but when the bench stepped up to pull the Nets close, Coach Vaughn seemed to hesitate in leaning into what was working. With a combined 32 points in the first and fourth quarters the Nets allowed a bad Spurs team to dictate tempo and hand them their third straight loss. Learn more about your ad choices.

No Kevin Durant and Ben Simmons means Brooklyn problems in Nets loss

The Nets played their second game following the Kevin Durant injury and Ben Simmons was a later scratch from the lineup as well. It spelled problems for Brooklyn who lost their second game in a row, this time to the visiting Oklahoma City Thunder. Once again, Brooklyn had trouble scoring in the fourth quarter, mustering just 22 points and being outscored by 15 in that frame. It was a carryover issue from the Celtics game. Kyrie Irving struggled from the field, Joe Harris missed wide open threes and it was another loss for the Nets.  Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

No Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving and Nets come up short in loss to Celtics

In the Nets' first game without Kevin Durant following his knee injury, they hosted the Celtics but came up short in the loss. Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons, among others, were going to need to step up with Durant off the court. And things looked good in the first half with the team shooting well and distributing the scoring load pretty evenly. But it bogged down in the second half and the Nets scored only 19 points in the fourth quarter.

Kevin Durant leaves with a knee injury, but Nets take home big win in Miami

The Nets pulled out a huge win over the Miami Heat with an almost-buzzer-beater win by Royce O’Neale to take them over the top. But the real story here is that Kevin Durant was injured in the third quarter and had to leave the game with a knee issue. He is going to get imagining on Monday to see the extent of the injury. But even without Durant, the Nets were able to beat a full-strength Heat team on the road and do it on the back of the defense. The Locked on Nets guys break down the game, Kyrie Irving stepping up, the depth of the team, and what things could mean if Durant is forced to miss time. Learn more about your ad choices.

Brooklyn falls flat behind Kevin Durant as Nets winning streak ends in Chicago

All good things come to an end, and for the Brooklyn Nets it was their 12 game winning streak on Wednesday night in Chicago. Kevin Durant maintained his MVP level season with a 44-point performance but this game was reminiscent of last season where wins were an all or nothing prospect on KD's shoulders. Kyrie Irving provided some highlight moments but could not come through late to help the Nets over the hump. While Seth Curry poured in six three pointers, the rest of the supporting cast was a complete no-show, highlighted by a rare off night for Royce O'Neal, who returned form a one game absence. The Nets surrendered 69 first half points, were late in rotations and did little to deny entry passes into the paint. There are no alarm bells to sound but it was a good reminder that even the best teams can always improve and this loss should help motivate Brooklyn going forward. Learn more about your ad choices.

Kyrie Irving takes over as Nets make narrow escape over Atlanta Hawks, extend winning streak to 10

Adam Armbrecht breaks down the short-handed but scrappy play for the Atlanta Hawks as the Brooklyn looked to land their 10th straight win. There were matchups and style of play elements that provided some real concerns throughout this game. Atlanta plays at pace, works in transition and has length - all of which had the first half ending with Brooklyn clawing back to a seven point deficit. Kyrie Irving again showed off his unstoppable offensive talent, pouring in 15 fourth quarter points that helped the Nets escape with the win. This has been the formula for the Nets under coach Jacque Vaughn, having Kyrie pick his "take over" moments around consistent team basketball with efficient and balanced MVP play from Kevin Durant.
