Found February 25, 2013 on Brooklyn Balling:
Deron Williams played really well tonight, but had a brutal turnover late in the fourth quarter that led to the Grizzlies prevailing   No Joe Johnson at all. No Brook Lopez or Gerald Wallace in the fourth quarter. No foul call late in the game when D-Will drove to the hoop for a lay-up with the game tied. Tonight's Nets-Grizzlies game was a bunch of no's and absences for Brooklyn who literally just needed one break to go their way in the fourth quarter to win this game over one of the better Western Conference teams. Obviously, they would never get this break, leading to a tough loss, constituting their second-straight loss overall and sixth-straight to Southwest Division teams (0-6 on the year). I'll keep it short because it's late but the game was a long, hard-fought, physical battle without much scoring, but with a lot of passion and fight. Reggie Evans matched up with Zach Randolph for much of the way, containing Z-Bo to 16 points and 14 reb...
