The Nets may have made great strides in 2012-13, but a bad choice and some bad luck could easily make them laughingstocks once again.
It appears that Phil Jackson coming to Brooklyn is a moot point, as multiple reports indicated on Wednesday that Jackson has in fact informed the Nets that he will not be the club’s next head coach.
“It’s the way it is,” Carlesimo told Mike Francesa. “I’m disappointed. I’m not a little disappointed, I’m tremendously disappointed, just because I feel strongly about what a great situation this was.”
If job security was contingent on overall performance this season, how in the world did Billy King finagle his way to a contract extension while the Nets were still in the playoffs?
Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King says P.J. Carlesimo will not return as coach in 2013-14.
Joe Johnson slumped in Game 7, only scoring six points as the Nets were eliminated.
After all the money, all the hype, and all the expectations that came with owning home-court advantage in an NBA playoff series, Brooklyn’s inaugural season ended with a dud.
The Nets are counting on a true home-court advantage against the banged-up Bulls on Saturday night.
Now both Brooklyn and Chicago face do-or-die scenarios, and you would think that the Nets should have the momentum.
Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Joe Johnson each scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets again avoided elimination, beating the short-handed Chicago Bulls 95-92 Thursday to tie their first-round series at 3.
Despite being in a 3-2 hole against the Chicago Bulls, the Brooklyn Nets insist they are the team to beat in this best-of-seven series.
The most pressing matter for Brooklyn is trying to find a way to win in Chicago, something it hasn’t done this season. The Nets dropped both regular-season matchups there and lost Games 3 and 4.
Brook Lopez had 28 points and 10 rebounds, Deron Williams added 23 points and 10 assists, and the Brooklyn Nets beat Chicago 110-91 on Monday night, cutting the Bulls’ lead to 3-2 in their first-round playoff series.
No use looking back now for the Brooklyn Nets. Game 4 hurt, physically and mentally, but there’s nothing they can do about it.
Game 4 hurt the Nets physically and mentally, but there’s nothing they can do about it. They’re focused on Game 5 in Brooklyn.
