THE STORY: Game Preview

The Nets took a bad loss against the Heat on Wednesday. Like, bad. The Heat just outplayed them to the point where Rodions Kurucs and Dzanan Musa each played some solid garbage time minutes at the end of the game. Whatever. Both Caris LeVert and Jarrett Allen were out, a loss with two key starters missing isn’t the worst thing in the world. Moving on...

The Nets are taking a trip down to Washington for this next one. The Wizards had looked like the most dysfunctional team in the league, but have won three straight ... all against teams with losing records. In fact, Washington hasn’t played a team with a winning record since November 2. Not only aren’t they winning, they’re blowing the easy part of their schedule!

The Nets of course are coming off of three straight losses to the Warriors, Timberwolves, and now the Heat. Kenny and the Nets are going to look to right the ship in this one. Let’s get into it.
