Nets in a nightmare after losing on Christmas Day
At least coal is something tangible. Coal can start a fire. Coal can leave a mark.
Nets fans got nothing from their team in the third quarter of Wednesday's 95-78 loss to the Chicago Bulls at Barclays Center.
No effort, no hustle, no anger, no defense -- nothing. Many of the 17,732 booed. On Christmas Day, they booed.
"We deserve it,'' said backup center Andray Blatche.
The Nets trailed 41-38 at halftime. They were playing a team that had lost seven of their last nine, a team that also has had to deal with losing a key player for the season due to injury.
