“They didn’t drop their heads”: Steve Nash’s honest admission after Nets’ humiliating display against Celtics gets dropped mid-game by TNT
Steve Nash was helpless against the Boston Celtics as he played with a star-less roster at Barclays Center. Kevin Durant is injured and side-lined for some more weeks due to an MCL Sprain, James Harden was listed out due to hamstrings and the game being at home automatically made the unvaccinated Kyrie Irving out. The game turned out to be the most embarrassing loss so far this season for the Brooklyn Nets.
TNT had the game booked to be telecasted on National TV via their broadcast and they indeed did that. But watching the one-sided start of Boston Celtics where the box score was 28-2(Boston-Brooklyn) in the first quarter itself. TNT decided to drop the telecast midway and switched to Philadelphia 76ers and Phoenix Suns match-up. TNT knowing the right business sticked with the Suns-Sixers game as even Candace Parker agreed to. The final box score for Nets-Celtics stands at 91-126.
The Boston Celtics started the game with a 14-0 lead against the bench-turned starters roster of Nets. The Brooklyn Nets are currently ranked as the 8th seed in the western conference with the record of 29 wins and 25 losses at .537 as they maintain a losing streak of nine straight games. The team now finds itself in a play-in spot after ruling over the conference for months.
Steve Nash is still full of hopes as he knows the potential of his players and the whole team. In the post-game, Nash backed his team up like a great coach while appreciating the efforts they put on to try and win.
Steve Nash in the post-game interview
Discussing the roster and the six rotational players being part of it Steve Nash in the post-game interview quoted: “These guys stay together. We were down 28-2 on national TV and they didn’t drop their heads so. That shows our group is growing closer and not pulling apart and that’s the most difficult thing to do when you are going through a period like this. I am really proud of the guys. I know how they have pushed held each other up and continued to compete like I said all went to the final..”
The Brooklyn Nets still have a shot at the championship as they have the best scorer, dribbler and playmaker in the team. The BIG 3 who are supposed to reunite in two weeks as KD would be healthy and so would Harden but the unvaccinated status of Kyrie will always be a problem at home games. Currently, the team is suffering a lot as being in the play-in spot and having all the stars of the team sidelined with rumors for Harden wanting out they don’t see a concrete run in the conference.
