JOE JOHNSON DOES IT AGAIN: NETS 113, BUCKS 111 (Game Grades)


Deron Williams POINT GUARD

Looks like the PRP helped — Williams looked quicker and more aggressive than in past weeks, combining a spry attack plan with some nice passes and outside shots. Actually didn’t do a bad job staying in front of Brandon Jennings — Jennings went wild in the third quarter, but not because of any breakdowns on D-Will’s part.

Joe Johnson SHOOTING GUARD

JOE JOHNSON JOE JOHNSON JOE JOHNSON SENDS THE GAME TO OVERTIME WITH A HUGE THREE WINS THE GAME ON A GAME-WINNING ISOLATION JUMPER THANK YOU BASED JOHNSON JOE JOHNSON DOES IT AGAIN!!

Gerald Wallace SMALL FORWARD

Looked great in the first half, mostly invisible during most of the second, then came up with a huge steal with 30 seconds left in regulation to give the Nets the ball. Played some power forward late and didn’t look out of place.

Brook Lopez CENTER

After a fantastic first three quarters, Carlesimo inexplicably chose to sit Lopez the entire fourth quarter (save a few seconds near the end) of regulation. Hard not to imagine the game wouldn’t have gone to overtime had that not been the case.

Looked awful in OT, though.

Keith Bogans SHOOTING GUARD

Don’t forget the shots he hit down the stretch. Role star.


Comments

  1. I give PJ Carlesimo a D. The Nets should have handled this in regulation but PJ refused to go to his best lineup (which he played exclusively in OT). We were a MIL foul at the end of regulation from losing.
