It's do-or-die, make-or-break, win-or-go-home. Are we missing any cliches? Something about fishing maybe? The Nets are down 3-1 after a heart-breaking and rim-bending two-point loss to the Cavs at home. Cleveland has three chances to get to the Conference Finals. The Nets have to win them all. Vince Carter is blaming himself for the loss, while others point to the 22.9% shooting percentage for the team's four best shooters. Meanwhile, Jason Kidd is still averaging a triple double for the playoffs.
