Nets Rising on Defensive Effort

Suddenly, they're a defensive juggernaut! Over the last five games, according to the NBA's sortable stat sheet, the Nets are first in fewest points allowed (86.2), both overall shooting percentage (40.0%) and perimeter shooting percentage (28.6%) and fewest opponent assists (17.4). They're second in fewest opponent rebounds (37.0). Still, the Nets have a ways to go, as John Schuhmann writes in his team report card.
