  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Struggles badly from field Tuesday

    Bridges closed Tuesday's 108-81 loss to the Magic with four points (2-14 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 0-1 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 29 minutes.

    Bridges is the engine that keeps the Nets' offense going, and his poor showing is perhaps why the Nets registered a season-low 81 points in this loss to the Magic. Bridges was a non-factor offensively and had one of the worst shooting performances of his career, but he'll have an excellent opportunity to bounce back when the Nets take on the Trae Young-less Hawks team Thursday.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Balanced game despite shooting woes

    Bridges amassed 15 points (7-21 FG, 1-11 3Pt), six rebounds and eight assists over 36 minutes during Saturday's 101-86 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Bridges struggled shooting from the field but still impacted the game in multiple ways, including leading the Nets with a season-high assist total, hauling in a half-dozen rebounds and ending as one of two players with 15 or more points. Bridges has recorded at least 15 points, five rebounds and five assists in 11 games this season.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Leads Brooklyn in scoring Thursday

    Bridges ended Thursday's 121-93 loss to the Raptors with 21 points (7-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 35 minutes.

    It was a tough scoring night for the Nets in their first game with interim head coach Kevin Ollie, especially from three as the team shot just 29.7 percent from beyond the arc. Bridges for his part contributed four of Brooklyn's 11 three-point makes as the young star out of Villanova paced the team in the scoring category. Over eight games in February, Bridges has averaged 20.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists on 43.3 percent shooting, including 38.4 percent from three.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Keeps hot streak alive Thursday

    Bridges registered 26 points (10-23 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and five assists over 35 minutes during Thursday's 118-95 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Bridges surpassed the 20-point mark for the fifth time over his last six appearances, and that scoring prowess should be sustainable over the long term, given the roster moves the Nets made before the trade deadline Thursday. Bridges is having a career-best season in 2023-24, averaging 21.9 points per game while shooting 45.4 percent from the field. Bridges can also deliver decent contributions in the rebounding and passing categories, but most of his fantasy value is tied to his scoring ability.

    This was a poor showing for Bridges, as he just couldn't generate much offensively. He's been solid for the most part over his last 10 showings, however, posting averages of 23.0 points, 3.7 assists, 3.7 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 4.1 three-pointers.

    While the 27-year-old wing topped 25 points for the fifth time in the last seven games, he didn't get a lot of help as only two other Nets scored in double digits. Bridges is averaging a sizzling 27.7 points, 5.0 boards, 4.1 assists, 3.7 threes and 1.0 steals during his hot streak while shooting 42.6 percent (26-for-61) from beyond the arc.
