NEW YORK -- The Brooklyn Nets will be looking to rebound -- literally and figuratively -- after a nightmarish showing Friday at Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks.
The Nets get their first chance to recover from their worst performance of the season Sunday when they host the Denver Nuggets.
Brooklyn is 3-3 after getting pounded by New York 107-86. Among the culprits for its worst loss of the season was rebounding.
The Nets gave up a 55-34 edge on the glass, including 19-4 on the offensive side. The Nets had plenty of missed shots as they shot 40.5 percent but allowed the Knicks to get 36 defensive rebounds.
"We came out the gate and they were the more aggressive team," Nets forward DeMarre Carroll said. "Credit to them. They basically just kicked our butts. They threw it up at the goal and just knocked us out of the way and went and got it."
