Nets fall to 76ers in Summer League Battle; Final: 92-86.

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Nets were up against the Philadelphia 76ers in their fourth Summer League game.

Following an opening week victory over the Indiana Pacers, the Nets went on to lose two consecutive matches to the Miami Heat and the Oklahoma City Thunder. With a loss to the 76ers, the Nets would virtually be eliminated from tournament contention.

The Nets were down 86-83 when Donte Green stepped behind the perimeter and nailed his fourth three pointer of the game. He certainly wasn't shy in this one, scoring 17 points on 6-20 shooting. Following his three, the Nets didn't score for the last minute of the game, and went on to lose 92-86. It was a thrilling battle between the teams, but the Nets were outscored 29-17 in the fourth quarter which ultimately doomed their chances.

Markel Brown had another impressive game, scoring 17 points on 5-9 shooting. Along with Brown, Cory Jefferson also had a good game with 14 points, eight rebounds, and six assists.  For the 76ers, Casper Ware led the way with 24 points on 9-17 shooting.

The Nets are now 1-3 in Summer League play.
