Yi, Lopez Learning How to Anchor Defense

New, comments

They're 20 and 21 (until proven otherwise) but Brook Lopez and Yi Jianlian must be defensive anchors...and slowly but surely they're getting it. In raw numbers and performances, the Nets are improving on D. "It's more about cutting down middle drives, cutting down blow-bys, and cutting down missed helps," Frank said of the two young bigs. Keyon Dooling adds, "Our big guys are getting better. They're seeing NBA ball more."
