Here’s the Nets thoughts on their last game in New Jersey:

Avery Johnson

“Yeah, I was just talking to P.J. Carlesimo about that going out to begin the second half. It was really just an eerie feeling. You’re right, just some mixed emotions, and I think it finally hit me during the course of the game that this was it, with us playing here in New Jersey. But great fan support [Monday night]. They came out, they cheered us on, and our guys just ran out of gas in the fourth quarter. We made a pretty good run in the third quarter, but it wasn’t because of a lack of fan support, and we really appreciate it.”


Anthony Morrow

“Before the game, when I was working out, seeing all of the fans, it’s kind of an emotional time for all the fans. It’s exciting but at the same time it is bittersweet. I am excited to be part of this, proud to be playing in front of all the Nets fans.”

MarShon Brooks

“Right now, I’m a little sad about leaving Jersey, but I’m Brooklyn ready. I have the whole offseason to think about Brooklyn. Like I said before, I was born in jersey, I have a lot of family helping me get through it. My grandmother, my mother and I just appreciate everything this year in playing in front of wonderful fans. The reality is we head to Brooklyn.”
