The Scoop:This one is filed under the "who cares?" department for fantasy basketball owners. Rush did play six minutes on Monday, but the move to Utah hasn't helped him after a somewhat impressive start last season with the Warriors before suffering an ACL tear.
NEW YORK -- A slow start was not in the cards for the Brooklyn Nets this season, but things are starting to look up after a 104-88 win over a hurting Jazz side on Tuesday night. Missing four of its key players in Trey Burke, Jeremy Evans, Brandon Rush and Andris Biedrins, the Jazz could not have been happy to see a physical Nets side led by center Brook Lopez, who scored 27 points on 10-of-13 shooting and hauled in seven rebounds. The Jazz's offense was mired in problems as they shot just 37.8 percent on the night. Guard Gordon Hayward led the team with 22 points while forward Enes Kanter added 21 of his own.
