The Brooklyn Nets were able to sneak away with a four point victory in Game 3 of their first round playoff series against the Toronto Raptors, though, it wasn’t thanks to any help from the crowd – at least not according to Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
The two elder-statesmen on the Nets were less than impressed with the effort given by the Nets fan base on Saturday night with Garnett suggesting he’d like the fans to be a bit more hostile.
“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.”
Pierce didn’t appear to be as frustrated as the Big Ticket, but did express some disappointment.
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.”
Sounds like Game 4 might be rocking a little harder than Game 3.
