Getting Defensive

New, comments

Defense hasn't been a priority for the Nets, but the past two games, opponents have been surprised by a newfound commitment from Lawrence Frank's charges. Using the zone against two poor shooting teams, the Nets held the Wolves and Sixers to 84 points. No one's comparing the Nets to the Celtics, but with the team already having offensive success, they know they'll go only as far as their defense takes them.
