When Early Starts Getting Too Late

The Nets may be thinking it's still early, but Al Iannazzone warns, early can become late very quickly. With a 5-5 record, the Nets have to be considered disappointing. They have had injuries to Richard Jefferson [five games], Cliff Robinson [one and counting plus two suspended], and newcomers Josh Boone and Eddie House [ten and counting]. But no one is using that excuse...yet. What is worrisome is a lack of defensive intensity and an un-Net-like inability to hang on to a lead.
