  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Season ends on low note


    Bridges amassed eight points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist across 25 minutes during Sunday's 107-86 loss to the 76ers.

    Bridges operated in a limited workload for the third consecutive contest with Brooklyn's season being inconsequential in the bigger picture down the stretch. Nonetheless, Bridges' inefficiency mirrored his past 15 contest in which he connected on just 39.9 percent on 12.9 shots per game. The 27-year remains an elite two-way player, but substantial evidence arose this season suggesting Bridges may not be a go-to, No.1 option in an offense, and that attempting to be one is damaging to his defensive intensity.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Strong from deep to boost offense


    Bridges ended with 13 points (5-16 FG, 3-11 3Pt), four assists, three rebounds and one steal over 38 minutes in Sunday's 116-104 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

    Bridges connected on a trio of threes while finishing second on the team in assists and as one of five Nets players with a double-digit point total. Bridges has made three or more threes in eight straight games, adding four or more assists in five of those contests.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Drains four threes in loss


    Bridges racked up 18 points (7-14 FG, 4-9 3Pt), four rebounds, five assists and one steal across 37 minutes during Saturday's 105-93 loss to the Knicks.

    The 27-year-old forward was one of the few Brooklyn players to have much success against New York's perimeter defense -- Cameron Johnson went 3-for-6 on three-point attempts, and the rest of the team went 5-for-19 (26.3 percent). Bridges has scored in double digits in 12 of the last 13 games, and he's averaged 18.0 points, 4.7 boards, 3.8 assists, 3.3 threes and 1.2 steals over that stretch.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Bounces back against Milwaukee


    Bridges totaled 24 points (9-19 FG, 6-14 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Thursday's 115-108 loss to Milwaukee.

    Bridges was coming off three straight games in which he couldn't surpass the 15-point mark, including a dreadful seven-point effort against the Pacers on March 16, but he bounced back here. He's reached the 20-point mark just three times since the beginning of the current month, allowing Cam Thomas to gain a more significant role on offense in the process. Still, Bridges is averaging a decent 18.3 points per game across 11 March contests.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Woeful shooting performance


    Bridges contributed seven points (1-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds and four assists in 29 minutes during Saturday's 121-100 loss to the Pacers.

    Bridges had one of his worst offensive showings of the season Saturday, finishing with just one made field goal and failing to reach the 10-point mark for the fourth time in the campaign. However, Bridges is too talented to struggle this badly over a prolonged stretch, and he should be able to bounce back when the Nets face the Spurs on Sunday.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Strong from deep in 25-point game


    Bridges logged 25 points (9-14 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, five assists and three steals across 35 minutes during Sunday's 120-101 win over Cleveland.

    Bridges connected on a team-high-tying handful of threes while ending as one of two players with 25 or more points to go along with a handful of rebounds and assists in a balanced performance. Bridges, who also recorded a team-best trio of steals, has scored 25 or more points in 17 outings this season while posting at least 25 points, five boards and five assists six times.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Poor shooting continues in loss


    Bridges logged 19 points (6-18 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 41 minutes during Saturday's 110-99 loss to Charlotte.

    Bridges continues to struggle from the floor, shooting under 37 percent for the fourth straight game. Despite playing heavy minutes on a nightly basis, Bridges has been a disappointment this season. He is the 90th-ranked player in standard nine-category leagues, well below where he was being drafted. Given he has been outside the top 150 over the past month, it's safe to assume expectations will be tempered heading into the 2024-25 season.

    Bridges closed with 38 points (14-26 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals over 39 minutes during Saturday's 114-102 victory over the Hawks.

    Bridges has shown time and time again he can take over a game with his scoring ability, and that's exactly what he did Saturday, carrying the Nets to a much-needed victory to keep their Play-In Tournament chances alive entering the final six weeks of the regular season. This was also a massive bounce-back effort from Bridges, as he was on a run of four straight appearances in which he couldn't surpass the 15-point mark. Bridges had made just 32.2 percent of his field goals in that four-game stretch.

  • 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.
