In December, Nets Looking More Like New Jersey than Brooklyn

The Brooklyn Nets showed up to Barclays Center last night ready to lose yet another game. They didn’t deserve to win the game. Nets fell to Utah Jazz 92-90 in a game that shouldn’t have been close at all. Nets blew a 13 point half time lead and were held to just 33 points in the second half. As the final buzzer sounded after Wallace and Evans missed their 3 pointers, the Nets showed little dissatisfaction of losing this game. After the half time the Nets mailed it in last night. The Nets ran off 12 straight points midway through the second quarter, extending a one-point lead to 45-32 on a jumper by Lopez with 5:08 remaining. The Nets led 57-44 at the half when Wallace made a 3-poiner with 1.4 seconds left. The Jazz scored on their first three third-quarter possessions, trimming a 13-point deficit to seven, immediately putting pressure back on the Nets. The Jazz grabbed eight third-quarter offensive rebounds and the Nets committed seven of their 14 turnovers in the third quarter. After the loss, Nets fell to a miserable 2 – 7 in the month of December. The team that was supposed to be the best team in NYC and got off to an 11-4 start to the season is now barely in the playoff contention in the East and barely over .500 for the season. They resemble the New Jersey Nets of last year than they do an elite NBA team. Isn’t spending $330 million over the summer supposed to make you a better team? Don’t the fans that pay hundreds of dollars to go see the Nets play deserve a better team? So what exactly is wrong with this team?
