Nets' Comeback Falls Short In Orlando As Brooks Goes 0-for-10

Brooklyn Nets

The Brooklyn Nets' first official game will go down as a loss, as a second-half comeback fell short and the Orlando Magic held on for a 92-88 Summer League victory on Monday.

The Nets trailed by as many as 22 points, but came all the way back in the fourth quarter. Tyshawn Taylor got them to within three with a drive with just over a minute to go, and then hit a pull-up three to tie it with 46 seconds left.

After Andrew Nicholson put Orlando up three with a three-point play with 30 seconds left, Al Thornton answered with a drive with 22 seconds left. But the Nets were still down three after a pair of Orlando free throws, and Taylor couldn't convert on his next drive. Orlando then sealed the game at the free throw line.

Thornton led the Nets with 18 points and seven rebounds, while Taylor added 17 points and six assists. Carleton Scott, a 23 year old power forward, had a big game off the bench, scoring 16 points in 18 minutes, but had a costly turnover in the final minutes.

MarShon Brooks missed all 10 of his shots and scored just three points, while Toko Shengelia scored just two points in 18 minutes, picking up four fouls in the first quarter.
