The Brooklyn Nets lost to the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday 115-106 in an embarrassing fashion. What made the loss pathetic was that the Nets lost to a Sixers team missing Joel Embiid, James Harden, and Tyrese Maxey while Tobias Harris was playing through a hip injury.
On ESPN’s “NBA Countdown”, Jalen Rose gave his take on what he thought of the Sixers beating the Nets and what the loss meant for the Nets long-term. Rose said that the Sixers enjoyed the victory because it gave them confidence that future matchups should go their way when they get Embiid, Harden, and Maxey back from their foot injuries.
Rose gave a matter-of-fact take on what the loss means for the Nets moving forward:
“This is what I took from it (the Nets loss), this squad can’t win a division, can’t win a conference, and won’t win a championship. This also told me this is not Jacque Vaughn’s job. They (The Nets) wanted to give the job to Ime Udoka and they didn’t for the reasons that we know. But, this cemented for me that this won’t be his (Vaughn) job long term.”
The Brooklyn Nets next play at the Indiana Pacers on Friday.
