Three bad losses in a row.
The Knicks are the laughing stock of the NBA no more. They have a 3-0 record against the vomitous Nets, including 2 at the Istink Center.
The Nets shot 52% for the game, had ALL starters in double figures, had a 15 point lead after one, and STILL LOSE, to an 11-26 team.
With two minutes to go in the 2nd they had an 8 point lead. End of quarter - 3 point lead. -5 net.
With two minutes to go in the 3rd they were down 3. End of quarter - down 10. -7 net.
With two minutes to go in the game they were down by 1. Lost by 6. -5 net.
Home record: 9-14.
Remember a few posts back? The Nets had a chance to go on the road 20-18, 21-17. Nope. 18-20.
The Nets are 9-6 on the road. Bodes well, right?
No, I don't think so. Prediction: 1-5 on the road trip. They'll come back for ONE game 19-25. Then off on the road for 4 out of the next 5. They'll go 2-4 over that stretch. 20-29.
Last year? 22-27.
Nine games under. That's my prediction for Feb 10 when they host Dallas, a team they couldn't beat when they were playing well years ago. And its a home game, remember that. 20-30.
The Nets well not make the playoffs this year. They are done.
