Holy Kevin Garnett: The Nets Are In the Playoffs

Jerome Jordan and Darius Morris and Earl Clark and Markel Brown are not household names. But they were the four on the floor as time ran off the clock and the Brooklyn Nets 2015 playoff season came to an end. Beaten by a 60 win Atlanta Hawks team (Al Horford, Jeff Teague, Kyle Korver) the…
