The point guard scored 17 points during the 96-91 defeat, which leaves the Nets with a 2-4 record.
The 29-year-old told reporters: "We're just learning to play together. We didn't have everybody healthy for training camp and we're all coming together and trying to win a championship and it doesn't happen overnight.
"We're not panicking, we know it's going to come together, we're confident that we can overcome these little struggles and we're going to stay together no matter what's happening on the outside."
The Nets face the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday.
