The last time the Brooklyn Nets played a home game, they produced their best showing of the season.
The Nets will get several chances in the upcoming weeks to produce more home victories starting on Monday night when they host the Orlando Magic at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Brooklyn (13-23) is 7-10 at home (6-9 in Brooklyn) so far but its last appearance on its homecourt was a resounding 119-84 win over the Washington Wizards on Dec. 22.
Starting Monday, the Nets play eight of their next 10 games at home, and the second meeting with the Magic is the opener of a five-game homestand.
The Nets beat the Magic in their home opener on Oct. 20 and won their first three home games. Since then they are 4-10 at home, though two of those games were "home games" against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Miami Heat played in Mexico City.
Including the games in Mexico, the Nets are averaging 108.7 points per game at home, but they are shooting 43.9 percent and hitting on 34.7 percent of their 3-pointers. >> Read more
