The Brooklyn Nets must win on Friday night in Game 6 against the Toronto Raptors, otherwise they face a first-round playoff exit.
Having assembled such an expensive yet experienced roster, the Nets were undoubtedly targeting a championship this season having acquired the likes of Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce.
Along with the likes of Deron Williams and Joe Johnson, it appeared as though they were constructed to flourish in the post-season, but that has been far from true so far against the Raptors.
Toronto travel to Brooklyn with a 3-2 lead knowing that they still have Game 7 at home to close out the series, but coach Dwane Casey will undoubtedly want to see this one end at the first time of asking.
Having been backed significantly by a set of fans that have relished being back in the playoffs, the likes of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry have responded, and they will need one final push to set up a semi-finals series against the Miami Heat.
However, this could be where the experience of the Nets comes into play, as although they have struggled to contain their opponents, they have been able to wipe out big deficits and make them nervous.
Whether or not Toronto can hold their nerve remains to be seen, and Nets coach Jason Kidd has insisted that his players are just focused on the game and implementing their strategy.
Kidd struggled initially with his star-studded line-up, and it appears as though those struggles have returned, yet he has called upon his team to be in attack mode through the entire 48 minutes, and ultimately that will decide whether or not their season comes to an end on Friday night.
