Avery Johnson: Saturday's practice best all-season for ball movement

Brooklyn Nets

Getting ready for Philadelphia, trying to forget New York

The Nets are back at full strength. Avery Johnson announced that Brook Lopez no longer has minutes restrictions and both Jerry Stackhouse and Josh Childress are back practicing after minor woes. Stackhouse remains a game time decision Sunday. Tyshawn Taylor and Tornike Shengelia are back from Springfield. So all is right with the world?

Not quite, not after a two wins in 10 games stretch, but Sunday afternoon vs. the 76ers will be the first time the Nets will have a healthy unlimited Lopez in three weeks, since they were 10-4. Johnson added that Lopez is close to where he was before injury, but not quite there yet.

For whatever reason, Johnson said the Nets had a great practice Saturday. In fact, he said said Saturday's practice was the best the Nets have had all season in terms of cutting and ball movement. Johnson said he had the Nets working on end-of-quarter situations, which on Friday he admitted was his failing. They put three minutes on the clock and simulated things so they can fix those ills, he said.
