Earlier this month, the Clippers beat the hell out of the Nets to the tune of 127-95. Last night in Brooklyn, Los Angeles looked like it was well on its way to another blowout victory with a 15-point lead heading into the fourth quarter.
Then Sean Kilpatrick took over.
The Nets guard, who signed a deal with Brooklyn in the offseason after bouncing around in the D-League and playing on a few 10-day contracts, scored 20 points in the fourth quarter and 11 over the two overtimes to lead BK to a come from behind win.
“I ended getting into a zone,’’ Kilpatrick told the New York Post. “At that point there was no turning back for me.
“Yeah, when we went to L.A., they got us bad and that was really something that stuck in our minds. … To grab a win like that against a top team is huge.”
The Nets over came a 26-point, 13-assist, 10-rebound triple-double and free throw shooting woes down the stretch to pull out the win. Check the highlights above.
