Before their scheduled opener at Barclays Center on Thursday, the Nets were at the arena for their final preseason practice.
The Nets will be in Brooklyn a day early, or a day late depending on how you look at it. They will be at Barclays Center Wednesday for practice, their final look around before Thursday's opener vs. the Knicks. As Rod Boone reported, they had originally planned to practice at PNY Center Wednesday but they switched things up Tuesday afternoon and said that practice will be held at the Barclays Center instead because there is no power at their East Rutherford facility. (Want to be the new training facility has generators?)
While the focus the last two days has been on whether the game will be played, it's now on what to expect from the Nets. Tim Bontemps and Stefan Bondy have their season previews with position-by-position reviews and predictions for the season record. Bontemps is saying 49 wins, Bondy one fewer.
