Nets' Nic Claxton: Strong end to season
Claxton amassed 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-5 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist and four blocks over 38 minutes during Saturday's 96-88 loss to the 76ers in Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.
Claxton took advantage of the fact Joel Embiid (knee) was missing, putting together a 19-and-12 double-double and adding a game-high four blocks. Despite the loss, Claxton put a bow on what has been a breakout season. He finished just outside of second-round value in nine-category formats, ending as the third-best shot blocker in the NBA, averaging 2.5 per game.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Nic Claxton: Ejected after second tech
Claxton has been ejected from Thursday's Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals after being assessed his second technical foul, Meghan Triplett of GrindCityMedia.com reports.
Claxton stared down Joel Embiid after dunking on him early in the fourth quarter and received a technical foul, his second of the game, and will join James Harden as players ejected from the contest. Claxton played an integral role before his ejection for Brooklyn on Thursday, scoring 18 points (8-9 FG) to go with four rebounds while also limiting Embiid to just nine points. Day'Ron Sharpe and Royce O'Neale should handle center duties for the remainder of the contest.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Nic Claxton: Downgraded to out
Claxton (rest) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 76ers, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
With Brooklyn locked into the No. 6 seed, Claxton and a majority of the Nets' regulars will sit out the regular-season finale. There's been no indication the hip injury will impact Claxton's availability during postseason play, but it has been a lingering issue over the last two weeks.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Nic Claxton: Questionable for Sunday
Claxton (rest) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 76ers, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

If Claxton sits, Day'Ron Sharpe and Moses Brown would each handle significant workloads.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Nic Claxton: Posts double-double
Claxton logged 14 points (6-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals across 34 minutes during Friday's 101-84 win over the Magic.
Claxton was efficient from the field and active on the glass, recording his seventh double-double across 19 games since the beginning of March. The Nets already locked up the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference and are set to face the 76ers, so it wouldn't be surprising if Claxton receives in the Sunday regular-season finale where the team has nothing to play for. He's averaging 12.9 points and 10.0 rebounds per game since the beginning of March.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Nic Claxton: Posts stellar cross-category line
Claxton finished with 19 points (8-9 FG, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists and two steals across 36 minutes in Wednesday's 123-108 win over the Pistons.
Claxton steamrolled the Pistons' starting frontcourt tandem of Jalen Duren and James Wiseman, putting up his best scoring total since March 12 with even greater efficiency than he usually provides while also recording five defensive counters. The Nets have a 1.5-game cushion over the Heat for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference, so if Miami can beat Philadelphia on Thursday, expect head coach Jacque Vaughn to hand Claxton and all the team's other starters their usual minutes in Brooklyn's next game Friday versus the Magic....

Claxton logged 14 points (6-7 FG, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists, two blocks and one steal across 27 minutes during Friday's 124-107 victory over Atlanta.

Claxton took advantage of his chances on the offensive end by hitting 80.0 percent of his tries from the field, resulting in his best scoring night since March 19 against Denver. He also recorded a double-double for the second time in three contests. Claxton has shown plenty of life on the offensive end so far in March, as he's put up double figures in the scoring column in 10 of 14 contests after doing so only four times over 10 February matchups....

Claxton remains a valuable fantasy asset and has been very consistent, scoring in double digits and grabbing at least eight boards in five straight games.... See More ... See Less

Claxton posted 19 points (9-12 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 31 minutes during Sunday's 108-102 loss to the Nuggets.
While Nikola Jokic delivered his usual triple-double for the Nuggets, Claxton put together a solid showing of his own for the Nets.

Claxton provided 20 points (8-9 FG, 4-4 FT), six rebounds, five assists and one steal across 28 minutes during Sunday's 122-120 victory over the Nuggets.
It's the fourth-year center's best scoring performance since he poured in 27 against the Pistons on Jan. 26. Claxton did see his streak of games with at least one block end at 11, but he's been a solid contributor since the All-Star break, averaging 10.2 points, 9.3 boards, 2.8 assists, 2.4 blocks and 1.2 steals over his last nine contests....

Prior to his absence, Claxton was coming off his best performance since the departures of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant, posting 18 points, 13 boards, four blocks, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes against the Rockets.
