Kevin Garnett and Paul Peirce Wants The Nets Fans to Step Their Games Up!
Brooklyn Nets stars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are used to having a crazed home crowd during their days with the Boston Celtics.
According to the two future hall of famers the Nets fans did not bring that Brooklyn style intensity to the playoff home opener.
“They could do better,” Garnett said Saturday. “I was expecting Brooklyn to be real hostile, New York-style. I know what it’s like to come here as the opposition, so our crowd could do better, but they were there when we needed them, and we fed off of them.”
Added Pierce: “Well, we know gradually they got into it. Hopefully the next game, it will get a lot better from the start. We want to come out from the jump, from the beginning, and have them in the game. It shouldn’t take a big play from us. We want them behind us. It was a great crowd tonight.”
The Net did defeat the Toronto Raptors 102 – 98 taking a 2-1 lead in the series.
Garnett also talked about the strong comments made by Toronto Raptors GM Masai Ujiri last week.
“I don’t know if you can say ‘F Brooklyn’ and then come into Brooklyn,” Garnett said earlier in the week. “So we’re about to see what it’s like.”
So whats up Brooklyn?! Are you going to answer to the challenge or just go to the Barclay’s, eat some Juniors cheesecake and chill?
