VIDEO RECAP – FINAL: #Nets 86 – #Kings 107

Updated: November 14, 2013

The Brooklyn Nets lost to the Sacramento Kings last night in overtime by a score of 107.86 in Sacramento.


The Nets were outplayed, out-hustled and out-executed from the opening tip until the final buzzer and this type of play is completely unacceptable.

[quote_box]Jason Terry:

“We win the next one, you’ve still got a long way to go,” Terry said. “It’s a long season. You’d like to say, ‘Stay even-keeled.’ But for us right now, this is desperation. Everyone that steps on the floor on Friday should feel desperation and come out and play with a sense of urgency. If you don’t you’ll be looking at another loss. It’s what it is.

These teams that we’re playing are desperate, they’re playing with a much more sense like this is their championship. We’re not meeting that intensity level.  “Talking’s over with. There’s too much talking. We’ve done enough talking and now it’s time for some action.  “… If we were playing five-on-five pickup at the park, you’ve been getting your a– whooped three or four runs now, OK? When are you going to pick it up and get a game, get a win, stay on the court? That type of mentality.”[/quote_box]


[quote_box]Kevin Garnett:

“It’s not a good feeling in here,” Garnett said. “But nobody said this process was going to be easy. No one [else] is giving a [expletive] or caring if we’re getting beat or not. Just us. I think the mentality here now is just it’s all of us in here. We’ve created this hole and it’s up to us to get ourselves out of it.”[/quote_box]


[quote_box] Jason Kidd:

“It’s not acceptable,” Kidd said. “We hang our hats at the defensive end. Clearly, in our losses, we let go of the rope on the defensive end, and whenever you do that it’s not going to work in this league no matter who you play.”[/quote_box]

[box]KEY STATS: The Nets starters shot a combined 20-for-56 from the floor shot just 37.8 percent from the field and had only 14 assists compared to 15 turnovers.

NOTES: The Nets third quarter woes continued as they were outscored 28-19 by the Kings and have been outscored by a combined 41 points in their five losses when they lose the third quarter.

NEXT UP:  The Nets now move on to the play the Phoenix Suns on Friday night at 9:00pm and the game can be seen on YES. [/box]
