He’s ridiculous. I wonder if the Raps or another team give him the max this off season.

I know it's an improbable shot but the fact that TL(LowIq)C, let him just shoot is the perfect encapsulation of the 1st half.

Team already looks ready to go home.

Our team is hemorrhaging confidence, we need to see some shots fall and see extra defensive effort pay off.

My suggestion would be to utilize Jarrett more as an alley-oop finisher. We've seemingly abandoned the P&R, which is fine. But Allen is getting good position in the paint coming over on the weakside when our guards get by their 1st defender. We should be killing them with easy buckets, this is a tough opponent but we're making it harder on ourselves than it needs to be.

At least Levert is playing well.

The talent disparity is shockingly high. Without Joe Harris, its even worse.

These games have been painful to watch.

That shot probably destroyed any second half momentum. I need some FaceTime calls from KD, Spencer and Kyrie to the locker room after that half.

Vaughn’s MLK toned speeches won’t cut it. Obviously, we’re undermanned and are overmatching, overwhelmed but we need to actually get more physical on defense and attack the rim alot more in the second held.

Get some dunks going to Jarrett. Insert Donta Hall for some energy, Vaughn. You aren’t coaching next season either way so stop being stubborn.

I'm not going to crucify TLC for that. As you mentioned, it was an improbable shot. Jarrett was right there too, he could have altered it and fell asleep. It's a cumulative effect of the refereeing. Guys are seeing non-fouls awarded to the Raptors as fouls, and they're shell-shocked. I'm sure they didn't want to catch a foul on the last 0.8 seconds of the half.

Vaughn needs to go deeper into the bench. No point in playing LeVert, Temple, and Allen 40+ minutes today. Getting them hurt in a blowout. Rodi only getting 6 minutes is crazy.

LeVert is too afraid of Toronto's defense. His stat line looks good but he's not creating enough shots. No free throws. No pull up 3s. Only 3 assists.

Agreed, he better put some Malcolm in his voice right now, we need to get aggressive.

Jarrett Allen having 0 FGA in unacceptable! They aren't even trying to get him involved!

Seems like the game plan was just to chuck 3's(which I'm obviously not against) but the fro has been the best overall player for the Nets all series and we are short the best shooter on the team.

If we don't come out with heavy Allen pick n roll/pop/alley oop to start the 3rd Q, I'll be pissed.

Whatever makes him more comfortable. I don't want him to get hurt in this meaningless games. He showed enough imo to warrant him a pass.

That's what I mean tho. The team is clearly shook and are scared of the raps on multiple fronts. They look ready to give up and go home.

Need an alpha/head coach to take the reigns and get these guys to lock in again. Same thing happened last year in the playoffs vs Philly. Kinda embarrassing, to out go out without a fight tbh.

there is no way in hell how these dudes just keep making all their 3s. It makes no sense. I bet against any other team that wouldn't happen, just us.

Other than working out with Spencer, has those two shown any NETs love? Like, despite how awful we are looking in this series, you did sign mega millions to be on this team, where’s the support? Again maybe they are and I don’t know about it...


Both have been far from BKN Nets related inclusion, for me.
