“I can’t even explain the feeling,” Foye said. “It feels like your body is numb. You are just out there in your own little world. Once you touch the ball and get an open look, it’s like throwing a rock in the ocean.”
The Jazz have now won five in a row and are tied for the eighth seed in the Western Conference playoffs. That puts them in a dead-heat with the Los Angeles Lakers for the last spot in the playoffs. It should be an exciting race to the finish.
“You don’t like to make excuses, but the Jazz play really well in this building,” Deron Williams said. “Foye went nuts in the third, we just never fully recovered.”
Williams is still winless against his former team; his head coach thought it had more to do with effort on the defensive end.
“Our defense wasn’t good enough,” Nets coach P.J. Carlesimo said. “Their offense had a lot to do with it. Fatigue has a little bit to do with it. Joe Johnson not being here has a little bit to do with it.”
Hopefully, they can have Johnson back by the playoffs or they could be in trouble.
