Default Nets lose to Celtics, fall to 3-9 in December

The sputtering Nets (14-13) fell to 3-9 in December with four games remaining in the final six days, beginning Wednesday night in Milwaukee, as they try to prevent their debut city campaign from going off the rails.

"[The Celtics] had that look in their eye like it was really, really important -- when things went bad on their end of the floor, they stuck with it," Nets coach Avery Johnson said. "We dropped our heads a little bit. That's something that I'll visit with our team about. When something goes wrong, that's when you really have to get tougher."

Things got testy with 9:31 remaining when Gerald Wallace got tangled up with -- who else? -- Garnett, the Hall of Fame instigator who was also in the thick of a melee when the teams last met Nov. 28. Wallace grabbed a fistful of Garnett's shorts as he stumbled after a whistle and the teams engaged in the customary pushing and posturing.

Yeah, everything was going great. Just a minor little letdown, otherwise the game was totally in hand. LOL

Avery on the Hindenberg disaster: "Small fire... nothing to be alarmed about. Oops! I guess it did kind of blow up, there. But not to worry, we'll have it patched up in a few days. I just need to give our crew a little pep talk and everything will be fine. Some of them are laying around like they're dead, but haha, I know they're just a little glum. Seriously, we'll be fine, fellas..."
