Half Way Home, Nets' Attendance Up 16%

With 20 of their 41 home dates now history, the Nets' preseason ticket push has paid off handsomely. Average home attendance this season is 16,715, an increase of 2,249 per game--or 16%-- over last season. The number puts New Jersey comfortably in the middle of NBA attendance rankings, at 18th, compared with the last several seasons when the franchise finished near the bottom in spite of on-court success. On the road, the Nets are now the NBA's ninth biggest draw, averaging 17,574.
