Last night, the Nets came back from a 25-point deficit after three quarters to beat the Kings in Sacramento.
They outscored the Kings, 45-18, in the fourth quarter, good for the fourth largest fourth quarter comeback in NBA history.
Of those 45 points, 27 came from former future journeyman D’Angelo Russell, who finished with 44 points, 13 assists, four rebounds and four steals overall.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, who didn't even play in the first half, ended up scoring this ridiculous game-winning layup:
The Nets are providing New York basketball fans with a great opportunity to support a playoff team that has a coherent plan for their future, and Russell is leading the way.
(The same Russell who the Lakers chose at No. 2 overall, then traded two years into his career to relieve themselves of Timofey Mosgov’s horrible contract.)
