After losing 103-92 to Memphis inside Barclays Center, the Nets are still striving for it. They saw their losing streak climb to a season-high seven games and their advantage over the pack of teams trailing them for the eighth playoff spot remain at a game-and-a-half heading into Friday’s beginning of a home-and-home with the Wizards in Washington. “I know for me, personally, it’s tough to deal with,” said Jarrett Jack, who went 4-for-12 and finished with 10 points. “You try to look at the next opportunity you have to walk between the lines and try to turn everything around. “That’s the only way to look at it. Just trying to look forward to Friday, and go out there and put out a complete 48-minute game and try to get a [win].” New York Post

Jack will go to considerable lengths to participate in graduation ceremonies Saturday morning at McCamish Pavilion. The Nets play Friday night against Philadelphia and have a game at Charlotte Saturday night. Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Come Saturday morning, Jarrett Jack is going to be a more complete man – more proud, more confident, more ready to meet the future, whatever it may be. Jack, the Nets’ backup point guard, will fulfill a promise he made to his family and himself 10 years ago. He will get his degree in Business Management from Georgia Tech in Atlanta. That’s a nice story. But it’s only half the story. “It’s a big personal achievement,’’ Jack said. “Finally I’ve rounded third and hit the finish line. I can finally say I’m a college graduate.’’ NBA.com

When asked what message the T-shirt sent out to the country, James responded: “I don’t know. It’s not for us to figure out. It’s just for us to understand what we’re going through as a society. I’ve been forwarded over and over about what’s been going on. This is more of a notion to the family more than anything. As a society we have to do better. We have to be better for one another no matter what race you are. But it’s more of a shoutout to the family more than anything because they’re the ones who should be getting the energy and effort.” For The Win

Jack said he was able to get the shirt from his agency, Excel Sports Management. “I know us as a team we’re gonna go out and try to make a stance and show that we’re a team that’s not with prejudice,” Jack said. “We want to have tolerance for everybody. And I just want to allow those guys to come be a part of it as well as much as we could.” The Brooklyn Game

When asked if he considered wearing the shirt before or if the Nets would make a similar statement before the warm-ups, Jack smiled. “Stay tuned. Stay tuned. Stay tuned.” The Brooklyn Game
