Nets add Injury to Insult in Motown (ETS Daily Exclusive)

The Nets fell to the Pistons 99-92, after trailing for most of the game. They made their now usual 4th quarter comeback to stay with the Pistons but ultimately went down in defeat, as usual. The bigger story, however, were the injuries (yes, multiple) that occured in the final minutes of the game, when Devin Harris and Jarvis Hayes collided with one another going after a loose ball. While the extent of the injuries is unknown at press time, both men went down and the game was delayed for quite some time. Devin appeared to have hurt his shoulder, and Jarvis was limping heavily favoring his left knee. Harris had 21 points in the game on 7-12 shooting, which led the Nets, and Brook Lopez added 20 of his own. Harris and Lopez had 5 boards appeace, and Harris added 7 assists to Lopez's 5. The star of the game, however, was Detroit's rookie Jonas Jerebko, who was a perfect 9-9 from the floor and had 20 points to go along with 7 rebounds. Rip Hamilton had 17 of his own and Rodney Stucker had a double-double with 10 points and 11 assists. The Nets have now lost 6 in a row, are 4-46 on the season, and are an abysmal 1-26 on the road. Even worse, their next game (and final game of this 4 game road trip), is in Cleveland, against the conference-leading Cavaliers.

The Nets seem to play well when their bench starts so this could be good for the Nets. I don't know whats wrong with this team, when Harris was out and Yi is benched players like Humphries really step it up. Why aren't they playing him full time what is this teams real agenda?

I don't think they have an agenda I think this is simply an organization and a coaching staff that has no earthly idea what they are doing.
