NEWARK, N.J. – You could tell the Nets wanted this game – for themselves and for their fans.

This was their home finale and it was a difficult fadeaway jump shot by D.J. Augustin with 1.1 seconds left that ultimately decided the 105-103 Charlotte win. But it didn’t come down to that tough shot by Augustin over Lopez. When you lose a game by two points there are so many plays that contribute.

You can point to some poor defense, bad shot selection and an inability to finish inside. And just once you would like to see the Nets deliver a hard foul when someone is driving to the basket instead of just letting the guy score or reaching at him, and giving him a three-point play opportunity.

That happened too much in this game that like the Raptors game the night before wound

The Nets returned from the four-game West trip feeling about the same as they did when they left a week ago.

They fought hard, came close to beating some good teams and were one or two plays away from doing that, and perhaps even one or two calls. They also feel like they’re progressing and improving.

This is all well and good, but the Nets have to eventually win some of these close games, against better teams, to really show progress.

It’s nice after a 12-70 season and with so many new faces that they battle the Magic and lose by one on a tough Jameer Nelson bucket before leaving for the trip and then end the four-game trek at Denver on a back-to-back, and are down two in the waning moments.

But it means so much more if they would get the win, naturally.
