Brooklyn Nets Summer League: Summer Nets Come Up Short Against Lonzo Ball, Lakers

Goodwin’s abominable help defense and effort felt even more egregious than his 2 for 12 night from the field. Goodwin was not alone on the porous Nets defense in often quitting on rotations but, for a young player hoping to resurrect his NBA potential and a player who has noted defensive effort as a point of emphasis from Sean Marks and Coach Atkinson, the weaknesses bellowed loudly.

As previously mentioned, the Nets defense disappointed in the 115-106 loss to the Lakers. However, undrafted rookie Milton Doyle stood out with his effort in transition on both ends of the court to offer the best bench performance of the night for the Nets.
