Nets Developing Toughness Mentally, Physically
The Nets have won 10 games in a month for the first time since 2006.
“People are starting to take notice," said Joe Johnson. "We are a mentally and physically tough team.”
The Nets defeated the Celtics on Wednesday in a game where Rajon Rondo, Kris Humphries and Gerald Wallace were ejected.
“We’re not going to back down,” Deron Williams said. “It’s not about being tough guys or anything like that. But we’re not going to back down. We did a good job of keeping our composure.”
Johnson added: “There was a lot of swings down there. Guys were going in to try and rescue their teammates. That’s the type of team we have. If you’re in an alley fight, we’ve got guys you’d like to be in there with.”
