Snatching Defeat

Watching New Jersey snatch defeat from the jaws of victory today was sickening. I hope the Nets can get things righted by Tuesday because there’s no way they should be losing to the Celtics. In some ways I put the blame on their coach, Byron Scott, because he wasn’t able to get them to execute any semblance of an effective offense out of the three timeouts they took in the final minute. Ultimately the blame falls squarely on the players though as they completely folded in the fourth quarter.
