In interviews with WFAN's Mike and the Mad Dog and Dave D'Alessandro Thursday, Rod Thorn talked about just how bad the Nets have been late. He noted that 12 times this year the Nets have led in the last six minutes but lost. Make it 13. Thorn made several references to poor defense but declined to pin blame on any player...or coach. And the Nets GM said with the team playing better and the East being so tight, tweaking the team could be risky. But he hasn't stopped trying.
