The Brooklyn Nets (5-3) play against the Detroit Pistons (7-7) at Little Caesars Arena

Game Time: 7:00 PM EDT on Friday November 5, 2021

Brooklyn Nets 39, Detroit Pistons 39 (Half)

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
#Nets and #Pistons tied at 39-all at the half. Brooklyn scored a total of 11 points in the second quarter – their worst period of the season by far – on 3-of-20 shooting. #NBA8:08 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
HALF: Nets 39, Pistons 39
Kevin Durant (9 PTS, 6 ASTS, 5 REBS), James Harden (7 PTS, 6 REBS) & the Nets put up only 11 points in the 2nd quarter. Both teams are shooting under 35%, but this may not last. Brooklyn has to get it going offensively, this isn’t typical of them. – 8:08 PM

Nets should negotiate with the NBA to play all games against the Pistons in Brooklyn. Must be something in that Detroit water because the Nets just do not play well there lol – 8:06 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Halftime: Nets and Pistons tied at 39. Harris, Harden and KD all with seven. Nets shooting under 33 percent from the field and 3. Not scoring much in the paint or in transition. Detroit not playing much better. – 8:06 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
HALFTIME: Pistons 39, Nets 39. Stay tuned for Syracuse vs. Virginia Tech next. – 8:06 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Halftime: Pistons 39, Nets 39. This is a Big Ten basketball game.
Cunningham: 9 points
J. Jackson: 7 points
Olynyk: 4 points, 9 rebounds
Pistons are 15-45 overall and 2-16 from 3. Nets are 13-40 and 5-17 – 8:06 PM

Michael Scotto @MikeAScotto
James Harden has passed Clyde Drexler for 32nd on the NBA’s all-time scoring list. If you count ABA players, Harden ranks 37th. pic.twitter.com/GoPxAu57to8:05 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
The Pistons are 2-of-15 from 3 and still beating the Nets. I don’t think that can hold up, but it’s been one hell of an experience this first half. – 8:04 PM

Mayor-elect Eric Adams to CNN on whether Kyrie Irving should get vaccinated: “It’s up to Kyrie. That is his determination. I don’t want to dictate for him. It’s his body. He has to make that determination on what he wants to do.” #Nets8:02 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
#Nets and #Pistons tied at 37-all with 2:33 left in the first half of an ugly brickfest. Brooklyn is shooting .371, while Detroit is .359 overall and 2-of-13 from deep. – 8:01 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets and Pistons tied at 37 with 2:33 left in the first half. Last few minutes were pretty meh. Pistons shooting 2-for-13 from 3. If they even doubled that percentage the Nets are probably two possessions or more. Harden is getting to the line a bit. Maybe encouraging? – 8:00 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Detroit is putting on a defensive masterclass this quarter. Brooklyn hasn’t even cracked double-digits in scoring for the period. – 8:00 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
37-37 with 2:33 left in the first half. Cade Cunningham still leads all scorers with 9 points. He and Stewart both have three fouls. – 7:59 PM

Matt Dery @DerySpeaks
Cade looks like he’s arrived tonight. #Pistons7:57 PM

Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Cade Cunningham looking a lot more comfortable and aggressive tonight. – 7:56 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
James Harden has OFFICIALLY passed Clyde Drexler at #32 on the all-time scoring list. – 7:55 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Isaiah Stewart has got to come out with his third foul. He was the catalyst the last three minutes in Detroit taking the lead. – 7:53 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Olynyk subs in for Stewart, who picked up his third foul on what looked like a pretty clean block on Harden. – 7:53 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Pistons are 2-11 from 3. 10-20 on non-3’s – 7:52 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
James Harden is blocked by Isaiah Stewart and needs a minute to get up. He looks okay. – 7:50 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Stewart just tossed Harden’s layup into the front row. They called a SUPER late whistle. LCA is angry. – 7:50 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Raise your hand if you had the CoJo-Frank-Bey-Lyles-Stewart lineup doing real damage? They just put in a real good shift. Pistons now lead by three. – 7:49 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Stewart gets the midrange jumper to fall. Pistons up 29-28 – 7:48 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
LaMarcus Aldridge’s situation is unique given he suddenly retired in April, deep into the regular season. But if the NBA still had a comeback player of the year award he’d be an early leader to me. – 7:43 PM

End of 1st QTR: Nets 28, Pistons 23
Kevin Durant (5 PTS, 5 REBS), Blake Griffin (5 PTS) and the Nets could not capitalize after jumping out to a 7-0 lead in the opening minutes. Cade Cunningham (9 PTS) played big factor in keeping things close, but they still trail. – 7:40 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the first quarter: Nets lead the Pistons 28-23. Very balanced scoring early. Four Nets with five points. DeAndre’ Bembry has looked good and the Nets have 10 assists on 10 field goals. – 7:38 PM

That in-and-out dribble seems to work well for Cade. Beat Durant and made the layup. Cade has seven points – 7:27 PM

Cade just bodied Durant on a drive. He’s got 7 points on 3-of-6 shooting. – 7:27 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets lead the Pistons 10-7 with 6:58 left in the first quarter. James Harden has struggled out of the gate. Airballed an uncontested layup and has three turnovers in five minutes. Joe Harris continues to shoot well from deep. – 7:22 PM

Chris Mannix @SIChrisMannix
On CNN, New York City mayor-elect Eric Adams says the city will not be changing its vaccine requirements, effectively closing the door on an unvaccinated Kyrie Irving playing for the Nets this season. – 7:21 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Back-to-back energy-filled first quarters for Detroit. A Saddiq steal and Jerami Grant block on Harden got the loudest cheers tonight, behind the Cade 3. – 7:19 PM

Vincent Goodwill @VinceGoodwill
Chalk this up to “never seen before”: James Harden airballs an uncontested layup. Left it short. Wayyy short – 7:17 PM

Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Three early turnovers for James Harden. – 7:17 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Cade Cunningham hits the wide-open corner 3. One of the loudest cheers I’ve heard in the LCA this season followed right after – 7:16 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Cade Cunningham gets his first non-logo 3 to fall. That’s followed by a Bey steal dunk. Pistons were down 7-0. Now 7-7. – 7:16 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Harden just air-balled a layup. No lie. – 7:16 PM

Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Olynyk subs in for Stewart, who picked up two fouls in the first three minutes – 7:15 PM

New NYC Mayor elect Eric Adams on #CNN, when he was asked about #Nets star Kyrie Irving and the city’s Covid-19 vaccine mandates: “New York is not going to change their rules. It’s up to the #NBA and Kyrie Irving to work something out.” – 7:09 PM

Mayor-elect Eric Adams on CNN about whether he’ll life the vaccine mandate so Kyrie Irving can play this season: “New York City is not going to change their rule, and again, it’s up to the NBA and Kyrie to come to an understanding on how to keep him on the Nets.” #Nets7:06 PM

Greetings from Detroit. First time here. I can vouch for the media dining. It backs the hype. First time on a road trip since the country shut down. Nets-Pistons tip in 10. Brooklyn going for four straight wins. Updates to follow. – 6:57 PM

Charlotte Hornets PR @HornetsPR
Ahead of tonight’s matchup at SAC, a few notes on Miles Bridges’ start to this season:
Bridges 32 points at GS on 11/3 gave him his fourth 30pt game this season. He has more games with 30 points this season than he had in the first three seasons of his career (3) #AllFly6:52 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Here’s your weird, random stat of the night: Cade Cunningham will play his fourth NBA game tonight. He’s worn four different jerseys. – 6:50 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets recall Nic Claxton from Long Island. Nash said pregame his timeline hasn’t changed. – 6:48 PM

Nets going with a starting lineup of Blake Griffin, Bruce Brown, Kevin Durant, Joe Harris and James Harden** for the 6th straight game. This lineup is 5-1 and is the lineup that made the most sense in training camp because all 5 players were on the roster last season. – 6:41 PM

Things To L👀k Out For In The Nets vs Pistons Game:
▪️DeAndre’ Bembry currently holds the best defensive efficiency on the team at 97.7.

▪️Kyrie Irving & Nic Claxton are out for Brooklyn. – 6:30 PM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Asked Dwane Casey about the Pistons being last in the league at defending the 3 but top 10 in opponent points in the paint and what needs to change: “Our defense started being very good and we’ve plateaued a little bit…” (1/3) – 5:27 PM
