The nets do not want to return to the ‘toxic environment’ of last year

We cannot tell the turning point at this time of the match. But, four minutes after the break, this idiotic foul from Ben Simmons on a small displacement challenge broke the Nets’ momentum on the Spurs floor. Sanctioned for the 4th time in the match, the Australian had to join his bench as the two teams tied.

The Texans would take advantage of his absence to go three possessions early and not be involved in the score. ” This is a great sin. Ben must learn to communicate flawlessly. It affected us and broke our rhythm confirms Markieff Morris.

It’s obviously disappointing to get your fourth. But as a competitor, I want to stay in the game, even with four, because I have two more to give. So I want the coach to have the confidence to leave me on the pitch. I’ve been in situations where I’ve had four fouls, and you’ve got to trust your guys “Judges the left-hander who, despite his absence for the rest of the third quarter, posted a triple-double (10 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists).

Discipline is required

As an indirect response to his player, Jacque Vaughn, who was deprived of Kyrie Irving (calf pain) in addition to Kevin Durant tonight, believes that his players should all be particularly involved at this time .

So we must be disciplined and smart in the way we play. And a lot of that is – I talked about this before the game – related to rebounds and fouls. We must take care of it “, The technician claimed that the team was narrowly defeated by Spurs in both sectors.

I hope the guys are starting to understand that the discipline has to be there, because you cannot recover from such slips. This is a big challenge for the group “The coach warned that the loss against one of the worst teams in the league shows that his Nets have no room for maneuver by depriving their stars.

With this third recession in a row, the memory of last year’s events has resurfaced. Kevin Durant’s injury this year coincided with the Nets falling to a narrow five-game winning streak in 21 outings. While Kyrie Irving doesn’t want to think back, Nic Claxton remembers and sees his team in better shape than it was.

care about the present

Well, last year was… It was kind of a toxic environment. We don’t know if everyone wants to be there at that time “Reminds the pivot in a clear reference to the imbroglio around James Harden, who was transferred to Philadelphia.” This year, there was no cleavage for everyone there. We will find a solution. We just have to figure out how to play with each other without KD and Kyrie on the pitch. The five are different but we will find them “, he assured.

Nic Claxton noticed a similar scenario for these three losses: the opposing team made a big run and the Nets couldn’t respond to it.

We need to better weather the storm and recover from it. It’s disappointing to lose these matches, but I think we have to come together and find a solution. It’s not the end of the world. »

A speech that will suit his coach who still doesn’t want to make excuses for the absence. Jacque Vaughn considers Brooklyn to be ” enough elements to do the job now, […] and so I’m going to push the band further, I’m not going to give them any excuses. I didn’t care last year. I care about the present. Now the most important game. Now I’m trying to recharge myself and get ready for Phoenix. »
