YOU GET A MISSED CALL! AND YOU GET A MISSED CALL! EVERYBODY ON THE NETS... TAKE A FOUL, LOSE THE GAME!

We’re BACK for another edition of “The Last Two-Minutes” report featuring your Brooklyn Nets!

According to the NBA’s latest Last Two Minute (L2M) report, the refs missed a call, again, in the final seconds that could’ve turned Brooklyn’s loss into a win. This time it happened with 6.2 seconds left. DeMarre Carroll took it the hole and was blatantly grabbed by Rajon Rondo.

This was the play:

One more time:

No call. Turnover.

We know the ending to this story. The teams went to double overtime and the Nets lost. If Carroll gets the shot attempt off or even a pair of free throws, the Nets probably win this game since they made a stop on the ensuing possession.

We’ve been here before, but it doesn’t make this any less frustrating for the Nets or their fans. These are blatant missed calls were talking about here. But, it’s the Nets... right?

So is there a pattern. Indeed there is.

Back when this became the daily talk for the Nets in early January, Carroll told reporters, “We’ve been looking for the refs to bail us out, but you can’t look for the refs to bail you out.” He continued. “You can’t look for the call in this league. Refs, they’re going to see calls, they’re going to miss calls.”

But now, DeMarre is beginning to get frustrated... and he’s not the only one.

Of course, the refs weren’t the reason Brooklyn fell down 28 nor were they the reason they gave up 72 points in the first half. But this is getting ridiculous.

Don’t expect Kenny Atkinson or the players to speak out on it more than they already have. That said, don’t think that people within the organization are completely OK with this. It’s the third time in the last two months that we’ve reported an incorrect call that could’ve changed the outcome in the final seconds of a game.

But hey, at least we know what to expect if a Nets game comes down to the final seconds, right? RIGHT?!
