After a strong Home win on Friday night, the Brooklyn Nets went down to the capital looking to extend the winning streak. However, the result was a 113-107 loss.

This was an expected win for the Nets who are looking to make some noise during a softer part of the schedule. Too much bad ball-handling and turnovers killed the first half good energy. Luckily, they’re still holding strong in the 7th spot with the Orlando Magic losing.

After losing several leads in the first half and having many terrible turnovers. The Nets ended the first half with shooting 12 for 24 deep and 24 of 47 overall. That comes out to fifty percent.

The third period would wind up being worse as the team struggled after building leads as strong as 10 points. Then would end on a buzzer-beater from Wizards guard Troy Brown Jr.

Closing out the game, the Nets were slowly giving the game away. After a hard fall from Kyrie Irving on a bad possession with Bradley Beal, he could be seen saying “I’m not alright” and left the game after. Word last night was a right knee sprain.

After that, the game remained close to the final minute. The Nets were struggling and had trouble boxing out at one point. The real hero of the game Washington’s All-Star snub Bradley Beal, who scored five points in the final three minutes. Nets missed their final six shots to give away any chance of a comeback.

The outcome was 113-107 Washington. The ball-handling in the game was good at first but they could not finish and scoring attempts did not go well in the end. Finishing 39 of 94 from the field shooting and 16 of 41 deep shooting, and, even worse, turning the ball over 15 times.

The Nets will remain in seventh place with an Orlando Magic loss. Brooklyn will host the Phoenix Suns Monday at Barclays Center.
