The Nets Lost a HeartBreaker Game 108-110 to the Bucks
What a heartbreaking loss! The Nets gave it their all in the 2nd game of back-to-back game on the road but they lost 108-110 to the Buck on the tip-in by John Henson.
Jeremy Lin had a cold-shooting night (4-16 FG, 1-7 3FG) but still managed to finish a double-double (12 pts/10asts along with 3stls/3rebs/2tos) in a valiant attempt to steal a win on the road against a well-rested Bucks who played 3 days ago. Booker (14pts/14rebs), Bogdanovic (26pts/8rebs), Scola (14pts/8rebs), Kilpatrick (15pts/2asts) also played very well
Down 7 points (97-104) with 3:18 left in the 4th quarter, Lin led the Nets 11-4 run to tie the game 108-108 with 2 FTs, 3assists, 1 steal. With 11 seconds left, John Henson grabbed an offensive rebound of Jabari Parker’s miss and scored 2 points on a putback.
Note: The Nets showed grit and guts in almost stealing a win even without Brook Lopez (rest due plantar fascitis) and Randy Foye (hamstring). They proved that they can compete well and will need to continue to be better with interior defense to not allow easy points.
The Nets would need to rest and regroup to face the visiting Bulls in 2 days
