The Indiana Pacers are in Brooklyn tonight to take on the Nets. The Pacers have won four straight and looking to move up in the eastern conference playoff standings. Paul George and Myles Turner get most of the love for the Pacers, but third year guard Glenn Robinson III has been a key contributor for the team over the last few games.
BSO sat down with the son of former NBA star Glenn “Big Dog” Robinson pregame and discussed not taking anything for granted in the “crazy” NBA, the mindset of a young guy in the league, and his 2017 slam dunk contest appearance.
See the video below.
The Brooklyn Nets lost to the Indiana Pacers Friday night, 106-97. Nets got down double digits in the first quarter and were fighting up hill the rest of the game. The team made a valiant comeback attempt and briefly led early in the fourth. Ineffective late game offense and the inability to contain Paul George down the stretch ultimately cost them.
The Nets dropped to 9-41 and this one was a tough pill to swallow. Rookie Caris LeVert made his first start of the season, and didn’t play particularly well. BSO talked to Caris after the game. See video below.
Despite the poor numbers LeVert remains optimistic and is learning valuable lessons his rookie season. The skill and want to is there. With more reps he will be a good player in this league.
Nets second year man Rondae Hollis-Jefferson also spoke to BSO post game and talked about the team’s indecisiveness down the stretch. There is a funny moment when his cellphone alarm goes off during our interview. Anything for laughs, right? See the video below.
