He can't carry the load vs this elite defense.

Nobody else does anything on offense besides hitting open shots, and Allen rolling to the rim.


People are asking a LOT right now from LeVert. and this roster in general.

TERRIBLE ending.

Still proud of the boys. We fought them hard until the end.

Too many mental mistakes and LeVert's worst game in awhile = L

Too bad because this was a winnable game.

Temple's butterfingers sealed it, but the lead up to it was **** too. Poor movement on the inbound and we barely even got it in at all.

I still have no idea how that happened, or why Temple was spazzing out at the end...it looks like he fumbled the ball

Caris was so gassed... he didn’t even ran to Temple as Temple was falling over....


That was a game we needed to win... Toronto wasn’t hot, gave us plenty of chances, wasn’t their best play.... and still got the win....

Sigh.

Hoping we can win 1 game in this series. We fought really hard this game.

They're just much better than us. No matter how hard we play this is still a G League roster.

I'm proud of the team. It's hard to get upset when we are severely outmatched and have no depth

I pin that on him, for his self inflicted wounds and poor decisions, and the coaches, for not taking him out due to fatigued... guy was gassing out by halftime already...

That was a super disgusting end by the refs as well. That was most obviously a backcourt and instead they allow the steal and the game sealing dunk and the OBVIOUS force out on Temple at the very end. Absolutely disgraceful that they allow stuff like that.

You guys are scrappers but Crawford would've really helped you guys these past 2 games in the ball handling and shot creating department with all of the three point shooting you have as well as giving Caris a break off the ball he looked spent.

These games are very winnable for the Nets .

Feel like this was our best chance to win a game in this series. Raps had an off day, but we just lost all steam in 4th quarter.

I'll take this effort but this is probably the only game we had a chance to win.

We must lead the league in not getting a shot up in these last second situations. No idea what that play was but there was a 0% chance it was going to work.

I was thinking the same thing, we could actually use Crawford badly.

Nets will be a solid team next year with KD/Kyrie/DJ back. Get rid of 3 scrubs and the bench much improved with some current starters moving to the bench.

He was pushed out of bounds super hard, I think. As I think Claud said earlier, YES network hates replaying questionable calls though, so maybe I'm wrong lol.

I know. I’m pretty sure he’s never going to see the floor this season, unfortunately.

So what do you want him to do, stop being aggressive?

Same. Not like we had a chance this year anyway, even if we somehow had managed to upset Toronto. Toronto is tough though, they're a lot like Detroit back in '03 to '05. Except they cry and whine and throw temper tantrums. And flop. And flop some more. They flop a lot. But they're still really good, I definitely underrated them overall. They could go toe to toe with almost anyone in this league this year. I'd probably drown myself in a bowl of Cheerios if they won a 2nd chip though. :lol:
