Nets Hope Lopez and Yi Can Take Advantage of Shaq-Less Cavs

New, comments

With Shaq out, expect Brook Lopez and Yi Jianlian to get more touches Wednesday. Net coaches have been working with Yi on getting position and finishing. Kiki Vandeweghe admits Yi is a work in progress but praised his aggressiveness. You don't get 12 offensive boards--the most by a Net since 1998--without being aggressive. The problem is Yi's inability to hold on to rebounds and finish.
