08:09 AM ET 02.11 | Optimism has given way in the eye of a storm. The Nets stumbled and wheezed. And the Barclays Center soundtrack morphed from the warm, familiar "Brook-lyn" chant to something more wrathful: "Booooo." They were the first sustained boos the Nets had heard since arriving in Brooklyn. But then, this was as listless and demoralizing as any loss the Nets have had. They failed to take advantage of the Spurs' depleted lineup, failed to hold an 8-point lead in the third quarter and utterly failed to contain Parker. ... At this point, the Nets can assume nothing and underestimate no one. Every team is a threat. "It's almost like we have two different teams," [Deron Williams] said, "and it's just guessing which one's going to show up."

You'll hear lots of cheering tonight, Nets. Of course, it'll be for the winning Pacers.
