After dancing around a couple of screens, Jarrett Jack hit a difficult pull-up jumper in Stephen Curry’s eye, giving the Brooklyn Nets a dramatic 110-108 win Monday night.
Jack handed his former team, the Golden State Warriors, only their 12th loss this season.
Curry was no slouch (26 points, 7 assists), hitting multiple clutch shots and drawing “MVP” chants from the BK crowd.
Per the NY Daily News:
Curry had gained the affections of the crowd by leading a comeback from a 10-point deficit with under four minutes remaining, prompting chants of “MVP” in Brooklyn. But the Warriors point guard flubbed his final opportunity after Jack‘s jumper, attempting a reverse layup well after the final buzzer to officially fire up Nets coach Lionel Hollins.
“We can send all those Golden State fans home that came to watch here in Brooklyn,” Hollins said. […] “There were a lot of roaring when (the Warriors) were coming back,” he said. “But the loudest roar was for Jarrett at the end.”
Monday’s effort moved the Nets (25-33) into eighth place in the Eastern Conference, a half-game ahead of the Pacers. It also marked their fourth win in six games, a stretch starting immediately after a trade deadline that had most of the roster on the block. […] “My name was out there (to be traded),” Deron Williams said. “I think it’s a big part (of playing better) that you know this is your team. Before we didn’t know if Brook (Lopez) is going to be there tomorrow or Jarrett or whoever. So now we know this is who we got and this is what we’re working with.”
