The Nets were 20 points down at halftime.
They battled back hard in the second half and took the lead with 8:49 left in the 4th quarter, going ahead for the first time since the score was 0-2. The Nets forced overtime and fed the ball to their most tenured veteran, Vince Carter. Coming back from a major deficit, against a quality opponent, in front of the home crowd, and some extra motivation from the game before? This was NBA drama at its finest.
With overtime thrillers such as this specifically in mind, Maxa began his inspiring Finish to Remember mix series. He captured Vince’s partially justified, yet still over-reactive jawing with referee Derrick Stafford last Wednesday. He captured the Nets’ struggles in the first half. And, of course, he captured the brilliance of Carter’s last-second bulls eye from 33-feet to beat the Atlanta Hawks.
