The Hawks are 2-0, with an average margin of victory of 32 points. They haven't been behind in 96 minutes of play and exude a confidence that they can play with the big boys in the East. But their wins have come against the Nets and Wizards, two teams dealing with early struggles.

For the Nets, Friday night's contest will mean another back-to-back and their fourth game in five nights and third on the road. With so many of their players joining the team late --Kris Humphries, DeShawn Stevenson and Mehmet Okur not becoming Nets until the last few days before the season-- the Nets have barely had time to practice and virtually no time to adjust to the loss of Brook Lopez. Their only bright spots are the superb early play of Marshon Brooks and the realization that Deron Williams and Anthony Morrow won't play this badly the rest of the year.

Brooks will be playing before family and friends for the first time. Although born in New Jersey, the Nets third leading scorer played his high school ball in nearby Stone Mountain, winning a state championship at Tucker High School.
