Nets now face tough stretch of games
The Nets are about to head into their most difficult remaining stretch of the season, with Sunday’s game at home against the Kings followed by a home game Monday against Toronto, games in Miami Wednesday and Washington Saturday and then Phoenix at home the following Monday, as four of their final seven games against teams over .500 come in a space of eight days. Then there’s the fact the Nets just, in essence, gave back one of their two quality wins earlier this week, when they knocked off the Bulls and Grizzlies at home.
One loss to any team is not the end of the world, but it’s one that, as Joe Johnson said, the Nets will be thinking about come April if they come up a game short in the Atlantic Division, or for a more preferable playoff spot.
