Unfortunately for the Brooklyn Nets they’ll be looking for their first win on the 2015-16 NBA season in San Antonio against the Spurs.
By Robby Sabo
If the gods were nice and you were able to choose your opponent in looking for your first win on the brand-spanking new NBA season, you’d choose almost any team other than the San Antonio Spurs.
The basketball gods, unfortunately for the Brooklyn Nets, don’t operate in that fashion.
After a disappointing 115-100 loss to the Chicago Bulls at home to open the season, Lionel Hollins’s team will search for victory against the great Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan tonight.

Not only are Popovich and Duncan a handful, but opponents now have to deal with All-Star big man LaMarcus Aldridge. Aldridge’s Spurs debut didn’t go as swimmingly as he had hoped it would. He shot just 4-for-12 for a total of 11 points against Oklahoma City in the Spurs’ opening night 112-106 loss two nights ago.
Brook Lopez, who started strong with 26 points in the Nets opener on Wednesday, will look to keep one of the top free agent signings from this summer down at least one more game.
Tip-off comes your way at 8:30 PM ET from San Antonio.
