SCENES from a practice … working on shots, enjoying the view

NetsDaily/Bryan Fonseca

“Scenes from a Practice” are back as the Brooklyn Nets prepare for the Charlotte Hornets, who they’ll face Wednesday night, most likely in the midst of 8-to-12 inches of fresh snow. Better for the Olympics than an NBA contest.

Charlotte is already in town, so the show must g-- …

You know the rest …

But before the nor’easter arrived, Nets players, staff and media got to enjoy that view on the last day of winter (or so the calendar says).

Here’s Rondae Hollis-Jefferson shooting free throws with Jacque Vaughn with that view.

It was a busy day at HSS Training Center as more cameras were around than usual. Ours caught Caris LeVert sitting down with Michael Grady of the YES Network. Nets Magazine maybe?

Then, there was Quincy Acy shooting three’s. After shooting 43.4% in a short tenure with Brooklyn last year, in 2017-18, Acy’s first full season as a Net, he’s shot only 33.3% from three. However, he is 39.1% from downtown over his last five games.

As the (really) old saying goes; practice makes perfect.

As NBA players do, Acy worked on contested three’s, too. after today’s practice. The extra shots coming in very tight quarters, the way it is in a game...

Truth be told, there are only a handful of practices left for the season. Players looking to catch a coach’s eye will have to do it in games. And there’s only 11 of those remaining.
