Gerald Wallace Frustrated by Nets’ Struggles

When the Nets dramatically overhauled their roster this summer, the plan wasn’t to put together a .500 team. But that’s exactly what they are after last night’s 108-93 loss to the Bucks dropped them to 14-14 this season.
“We’re a way better team than what our record is,” Gerald Wallace said. “I’m [bleeping ticked] off about us losing, and especially the way we’re losing.”
Wallace, now the team’s power forward after coach Avery Johnson switched to smaller starting lineup Sunday against Philadelphia, did his part to try to carry the Nets to a win, finishing with eight points, 12 rebounds, eight assists and two steals while seeing the amount of ball-handling he was doing increase, thanks to the absence of Deron Williams, who sat out with a bruised right wrist.
“It’s mind-boggling that we’re in the situation we’re in,” Wallace said. “As good of a team as we are, as good as started off … you saw the potential we had as a team, and the talent we have as a team. And yet, still, instead of team, it’s more of ‘I.’ ”
