The Nets’ play has improved with Lin’s return to the lineup after the All-Star break. But they couldn’t hold up under the Thunder’s physicality, couldn’t hold down triple-double machine (Russell) Westbrook, and lost 122-104 in front of 13,911 hearty fans who braved the blizzard at Barclays Center.
The Nets even had to hear those same fans cheer Westbrook throughout with chants of “MVP! MVP!” that shocked even the Thunder star. Brooklyn had to watch them give Westbrook an ovation when he clinched his 33rd triple-double of the season by snaring a Brook Lopez rebound with 4:50 to play.
