Nets’ Johnson: ‘This is not a dire moment’
The Nets are an organization living in the future as much as it is in the present. In part because in their current state there isn’t much to revel in. The team dropped its fifth straight game with a 108-94 loss to the Indiana Pacers at the Prudential Center tonight.
Not helping in the least bit is that their roster, as currently constructed, has been hampered by the developmental curve brought upon them by this fast-tracked season.
So after a loss where there wasn’t much to talk about, Avery Johnson focused on what’s to come.
“This is not a dire moment for us,” he said. “I am so encouraged. I was talking to (GM) Billy (King), I was talking to our CEO Brett Yormark before the game. There is no surrender. I’m still just as excited about being the coach here and working with our guys.”
