This afternoon, the Brooklyn Nets lost to the Miami Heat 71-70 after an inbounds lob from Justice Winslow to Tyler Johnson with .4 seconds left on the clock.

Paul Pierce rips Nets: situation in Brooklyn was “horrible,” calls team “vets who didn’t want to play and didn’t want to practice”

Two offseasons ago, the Nets acquired Paul Pierce with championship aspirations. But after an ugly split, Pierce hasn’t shied from expressing his distaste in how things turned out.
