Wednesday night’s game saw the Nets defeat the Hawks in a game that the two teams combined to score 286 points.
On Friday, the Nets will look to drop the Hawks once again - but, like, maybe hold them to something a bit more respectable than 141 points; just, something to consider, Nets.
Here we go, 2021. Let’s do this.
WHO: Brooklyn Nets (3-2) vs. Atlanta Hawks (3-1)
WHEN: 7:30pm EST
WHERE: YES Network (tv), WFAN (radio)
The interior might be the biggest issue facing the Nets this season. Atlanta won the rebounding battle by 14 and scored 50 points in the paint (they lost that category to the Nets though). The Nets are going to need a ton of heavy lifting from the duo of DeAndre Jordan and Jarrett Allen to handle all of the dirty work and reduce the amount of second chances teams get against them. Allen, Brian Lewis reports, leads the NBA in offensive rebounds, offensive rebound percentage and rebound percentage.
