Nets Back in New Jersey

The Nets arrived back in Newark early Sunday morning, following a stopover Saturday evening in Anchorage to refuel and go through US Customs.  With 17,000+ miles under their belts (as well as two losses), the team now has two and a half days til their next trip, blessedly by bus, to Madison Square Garden for Tuesday's game vs the Knicks.  They next fly on Wednesday to Boston for their final preseason game vs. the Celtics.  After that, it's a week off before Opening Night at the Prudential Center.

Brook Lopez is the NBA's second leading scorer in preseason at 22.4 ppg, just behind Carmelo Anthony at 24.3.  The Nets center is also third in visits to the free throw line at 9.8, behind Anthony and James Harden of the ThunderDevin Harris ranks seventh at 7.8.  Harris also ranks fifth in assists.  The stats include games against NBA competition, not international squads.

As a team, the Nets biggest strength is defense, letting NBA teams score on only 40.8% of their field goal attempts, which ranks them eighth in the league.  Offensively, however, they rank 26th, not much above their league worst numbers of last season. They rank 27th in team assists.  It should be noted, however, that the teams ranked beneath the Nets in scoring are the Spurs and Heat.
