Let’s face it Nets fans. This season has been a disappointment for our team. With only twenty plus wins this year. Nets fans haven’t had much to cheer about but despite the small amount of victories in 2012. The Nets have had their share of big moments and strong games throughout their 66 regular season games.
Here are the TOP 3 Nets games in the 2011-12 season.
1. Nets vs Bobcats (March 4th 2012) – Deron Williams exploded for 57 points against the lowly Bobcats. D-Will took over in the second half with his incredible scoring ability. The Nets needed every one of D-Will’s points in their 3 point victory against Charlotte. The Nets notched their 12th win of the season on a night when Deron Williams set the NBA season high for one player in a game. Nets 104 – Bobcats 101
2. Nets vs. Bulls (February 18th 2012) – The Nets came into Chicago on a eight game losing streak. The Bulls we’re at the top of the Eastern Conference when the Jersey boys took it to the Bulls from the opening tip. D-Will took advantage of Derrick Rose’s absence by scoring 29 points. Kris Humphries went onto another double-double with 24 pts & 18 rebs. The Nets earned their 9th win of the year in the Windy City with their best victory of the season. Nets 97 – Bulls 85
3. Nets vs. Knicks (February 20th 2012) – The Linsanity craze had started against the Nets two weeks earlier. Deron Williams and the Nets came out looking for revenge. Playing back in the Garden, the Nets showed a determination to not let lighting strike twice against them. D-Will showed his All-Star skills against the upstart Lin by scoring 38 points against the Knicks. The Nets won their 10th game of the season against their cross-river rivals. Nets 100 – Knicks 92
