Nets lose to Pistons in NJ
In case you have been riding the euphoria of the Giants since Christmas or practicing some bizarre ritual where you stare at a moose for months, the Nets put together a capsulated version of their season for you last night.
There was a horrible start. There was a ghastly deficit. There was a spirited comeback, and, naturally, in keeping with team policy, there was an injury.
Oh, almost forgot. There was of course, a loss, their fourth straight. This time, 99-92 to the Pistons in Newark. Welcome to your 2011-12 New Jersey Soon-to-Be Brooklyn Nets.
“We lost. That’s about it. It’s another loss at home,” said Deron Williams, who sank a career high-tying six 3-pointers while scoring 34 points — 27 of them in the second half — when he led the furious but ultimately futile comeback from 18 points down to within one. “We’ve been struggling here all season, finding our shot, finding rhythm.”
