When he returned to the defense unable to decide even though he aggressively hit a 3-point shot from the correct 45 degrees, the whistle blew with a play that flew into Patrick Williams’ dunk block. Although he spread his hands and appealed for no foul, the decision was not overturned, and the fourth foul was called 30 seconds after its appearance. After that, when he received a corner in a small view of the shot clock, he was hit by a hard shot from the drive and it became an air ball.

The Nets, who could not use Watanabe in the closing line, went to one possession several times, but could not correct their defense until the end and lost. Watanabe, who got into foul trouble, scored one goal in just six minutes of playing time, and was unable to show his full potential.
