These Brooklyn Nets will not win an NBA Championship
So the Nets and Cavaliers on Wednesday night. Fast forward right to overtime because the Nets were able to tie it after an incredible comeback in the fourth quarter. Brooklyn really should have closed the door on this game, whether it be in that fourth quarter or the first overtime. But overtime captured the two big questions that are likely going to exist for this team.
The one that everybody asks when you put a bunch of superstars together, and that is who’s going to take the final shot. Well, they all got to crack at it against the Cavs, and boy, it did not look good for anybody. Kyrie Irving elbows, Collin Sexton in the mouth. It gets overturned but then lost the ball. No dice. How about a James harden isolation possession on Larry Nance.
Nope, that didn’t work out. Kevin Durant, how about you rise over Larry Nance? That was also a miss. They looked discombobulated on those game-winning possessions, but more than anything, the defense. The defense! The defense! The defense! Cleveland scored on their first nine possessions going seven for seven from the field in that second overtime.
Now. Yes, Collin Sexton was out of his mind, but this defense, defense like that, cannot win the East, let alone the NBA championship.
