It’s the first time a Nets Summer League entry has made it to the semifinal round. The championship game will be played at 9:00 p.m. ET Monday on ESPN. The Rockets and Jazz are the other Final Four teams.
The Nets lost to the Cavs in their first game in the desert, 101-97. After that, Brooklyn handily defeated the Knicks and Bucks in blowouts, then defeated the Raptors, 99-94, in overtime with Wilson, the Nets top player, ending the game with a putback. The Nets were one of seven teams to finish with a 3-1 record but the big wins over New York and Milwaukee gave them the biggest cumulative point differential.
