The New Jersey Nets are halfway through this painful season, and it becomes obvious with each day that this is a team with no clue and no idenity. The Nets were noncompetitive against the World Champion Boston Celtics, losing 105-85 Saturday at the IZOD Center in East Ruterford, New Jersey.
Boston jumped out to a fast 8-0 lead in this game and cruised through the first two quarters. Boston enjoyed a dominating 68-39 lead going into half time. No wonder nobody shows up to see Net games; these guys just stink.
Ray Allen led the Celtics with 25 points; he shot 8 for 12 from the floor and was a perfect six for six from the free throw line. Paul Pierce and Eddie House each contributed 13 points, while big man Kevin Garnett dropped 12 on New Jersey.
The only Net who decided to show up was rookie Brook Lopez who had 28 points on 12 of 17 shooting.
The Nets are now 19-22 on the season and 12.5 games behind Boston. In other words, the season is over!!
