Despite a furious comeback in the second half, Brooklyn dropped its fourth straight game after falling to the Milwaukee Bucks, 97-88, at Barclays on Sunday. Bucks star guard Brandon Jennings led all scorers with 26 points and 7 assists.
The Nets trailed by as much as 29 points in first half to the BUCKS? Milwaukee is not of the same caliber as Miami, Boston or even the Knicks. Brooklyn’s poor play continues to make sub-par teams seem better than what they are. In an 82-game season, every team is going to have its ups and downs. But for the Nets to squander a 20 point lead and lose to the Kevin Loveless Minnesota Timberwolves at home and then to have trailed the Bucks by 30 in this matchup before ultimately losing by 9, all I can say is really….? Is this the best you can do?
