As expected, the Nets did not win any games this week. The Nets faced the top teams of the NBA in one week and were not able to steal a win. There is not much to say about the Nets’ performance. Turnovers were a big factor in the Nets losing this week. The Nets had more turnovers in each game they played this week, and it hurt any chances of them staying in the game.
