The Nets may see some “Hack-a-Reggie” in their future.
Facing a huge deficit in the fourth quarter of Friday night’s game, the Wizards sent Reggie Evans to the foul line 10 times in the fourth quarter alone of what eventually became a 95-78 Nets win in front of a sellout crowd inside Barclays Center.
Evans finished the game with 11 points — despite finishing the game 5-for-16 from the charity stripe — along with an impressive 24 rebounds. It is that rebounding prowess that leaves interim coach P.J. Carlesimo weighing whether or not it’s worth keeping him in the game in such a situation.
“The numbers do not show it, but he’s shooting his free throws better. It’s difficult. If he’s splitting them, I don’t mind, but it’s hard. We’ll have to see.
Nothing’s free from the charity stripe for Nets’ Evans
