The Bobcats are also a league-worst 6-32 on the road, including a 1-18 stretch since Jan. 27.
Brooklyn must not play at the Bobcats’ level, especially after suffering a tough home loss to the Bulls on Thursday.
Keep Up Intensity for Four Quarters
It’s been the theme for the Nets all season, but the team must look to put forth a complete effort.
The Nets led the Bulls by 16 Wednesday, only to see Chicago crawl back into the game and eventually take the lead.
With a few weaker opponents on the upcoming schedule, the Nets could fall into a trap. Even if the team can get out to a fast start, it will be important to maintain that effort for the entire game.
Hot Start from Lopez
Brook Lopez was on fire to start the game Wednesday, but he couldn’t get it done in the final seconds in attempting to tie the game.
He missed a shot, had another blocked by Nazr Mohammed and committed a he turnover.
Expect Lopez to come out with extra fire tonight to avenge for how the Nets’ recent loss finished. If things go according to plan, Lopez likely won’t have to worry about making clutch shots late in this one.
Going for the Sweep
A Nets’ win would mark a season sweep of the Bobcats.
It also would be the seventh consecutive victory by the Nets over Charlotte. If so, it would be the first time the Nets have defeated the same opponent at least seven straight times since an eight-game winning streak against the Bulls from Dec. 23, 2003 – Nov. 5, 2005.
