THE STORY: Game Preview
Yeah, yeah, the Nets are 2-4 and are on a two-game losing streak. But they just barely lost to the top two seeds in the Western Conference at the moment. Sure they blew that Pelicans game, but they had to be winning in the first place to blow it! And there is absolutely no shame losing by six to the Warriors, especially when you were down by 19 and got it within two. None. They played hard and gave the team of the century a run for their money.
This is all to say, don’t panic. There will be moments like this during the next few seasons as the Nets look to legitimize their process with wins. They’ll come. Hard fought losses against two of the best teams in the league are nothing to freak out about. Plus, now they get to play the Knicks! Always fun trying to beat up on the crosstown rivals. Let’s get into it.
