The pressure is certainly something that Nets’ head coach Kenny Atkinson acknowledges, and doesn’t enjoy one bit.
“I don’t enjoy one second of this,” Atkinson said Tuesday after practice, according to Greg Joyce of The New York Post. “I really don’t.”
“I love the game, I love the organization, I love the players, but you just have this constant pit in your stomach. I told my wife [Monday] night, I said, ‘The anxiety only leaves after a win.’ That moment from the win [until] you have your dinner or whatever, and then this morning you wake up and you’re worried about Washington, and, ‘Man, we gotta get that one, what an important game.’ It’s just a little window where the anxiety disappears.”
The Nets are jockeying for the 5th seed spot, and sits behind Boston with the 6th seed.
