Down 3-1 after collapse, Nets not looking back
NEW YORK (AP) — No use looking back now for the Brooklyn Nets.
Game 4 hurt, physically and mentally, but there's nothing they can do about it. The missed free throws and blown boxouts cost them what should've been a victory. And they realize things would be a whole lot different if they were coming home tied at two games apiece instead of trailing the Chicago Bulls 3-1.
If they don't win Game 5 on Monday night, they'll have all the time in the world to think about what might have been.
So interim coach P.J. Carlesimo says they won't spend much time looking at specifics of their collapse in a 142-134 triple-overtime loss in Chicago on Saturday. Carlesimo says that the Nets "need to dwell on Monday, not Saturday."
