The Brooklyn Nets are feeling good at home tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers, and if they keep it up, they just might be able to pull off the early season upset inside the Barclays Center.

Kevin Garnett is unquestionably the star in the first half for Brooklyn, but that’s not to say that he’s not getting some much needed help from his teammates.

As of this moment, point guard Shaun Livingston is also doing his far share as he’s already dropped in ten points for the squad, including this play of the night so far.

Livingston comes right from the top of the key, drives to the hoop and embarrasses the Portland defense with the slam:

The Nets are going to need all the plays like this that they can get, because the Blazers are now starting to fight back. They’ve cut the lead to as small as six, so it would definitely be in Brooklyn’s best interest to keep this going for as long as they can.
