It’s All Over: Nets End the Season on a 10 Game Losing Streak

(BROOKLYN) —  Just like that, the Brooklyn Nets’ 2015-16 season has come to a painful end.

The Nets lost 103-96 to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night in a meaningless contest.  The Raptors rested all of their best players for the postseason, and the Nets shut down their two best players, Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young for the season weeks ago.

After losing its final 10 games, Brooklyn finishes the season with a 21-61 record, which is good for third-worst in the NBA.  It was undoubtedly one of the worst seasons in franchise history, highlighted by the firing of head coach Lionel Hollins and reassigning of general manager Billy King back in January.  The Nets failed to qualify for the postseason for the first time since moving to Brooklyn in 2012.  To make matters worse, the Nets owe their 2016 first round draft pick to the Boston Celtics thanks to the 2013 trade for Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.

The Celtics have the third-best odds at winning the top pick in the draft.  The Nets will receive a second round selection, but it will be swapped with the Los Angeles Clippers.  If the Clippers would have finished with a top five record, the Nets would’ve received the 33rd pick in the draft as opposed to the 55th, which as of now will be their only selection in June.

Stay tuned for a full Brooklyn Nets season recap and offseason preview.  Thank you for reading and following along all season!
