Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson both had good games for the Brooklyn Nets (10-28), but Lamarcus Aldridge and Kawhi Leonard for the San Antonio Spurs (33-6) were too much as the Spurs dominated in Brooklyn on Monday night.

Coach Poppovich and the Spurs continue to quietly maintain their success and remain within striking distance of the league-leading Golden State Warriors.  The Spurs have now won 8 straight games and are looking very hard to beat.

The Nets’ early season struggles continue, as the game against the Spurs marks the first game without the recently fired coach Lionel Hollins and they will continue to struggle as their next five games include a cross-city matchup against the Knicks and games versus Portland, Atlanta, Toronto, and Cleveland.

The Spurs will finish up the week with a visit to Detroit to take on the Pistons and then will welcome the LeBron James and the Cavaliers to San Antonio as they look to defend their perfect win streak at home.
