The Nets will practice at the Prudential Center Monday to acclimate themselves to a new arena. It's not born out of some promotion for the team, but Avery Johnson's belief that the team is not yet used to shooting in a place where they play 39 home games this season (the other two "home" games will be in London.)
Johnson is not alone. Conor Orr interviews two experts who say visual cues are necessary for success in shooting. "When it’s new, your brain is adjusting and is acutely aware to things that are new and novel," said one, a clinical neuropsychologist. "So you respond differently if it’s a new or novel stimuli as opposed to something that is familiar or the same."
