The Brooklyn Nets lost 96-95 yesterday in an all-out battle against the Miami Heat. The 1 point loss really sums up Brooklyn’s season: so close, but yet so far. And it’s frustrating — Extremely frustrating.
The 16-23 Nets just haven’t been able to click this season.
34/22 splits gave Brooklyn their second game shooting under 40% in the new year. But in the end, it was more than just bad shooting.
Jacque Vaughn failed massively to push the green light on what many thought was a winnable challenge off a Dennis Smith Jr. personal to preserve a timeout, then inexplicably didn’t use it.
The Nets need a fire to be ignited, they need a momentum shifting game. Facing the 10-win Trail Blazers tomorrow night, the Nets could start a streak with a blowout win.
