Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NBA. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged in Brooklyn Nets fans, and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts.

According to the most recent SB Nation Reacts survey 83 percent of Nets fans are confident the team is headed in the right direction. That’s down from 88 percent each of the last two weeks. Maybe a win tonight against the Celtics to go up 2-0 in the series will add a little boost of confidence?

Hard to argue in favor of the 17 percent of fans who don’t think they’re headed in the right direction, but I guess this was taken over the past 7 days and there might have been a lot of “2 seed” playoff jitters?

This doesn’t seem right - and I guess this is what you get for not voting?!

In other NBA awards news, this week we learned that Jordan Clarkson won the NBA’s Sixth Man of the Year award - and deservedly so. Here’s a great piece by the team over at SLC Dunk on his season.

Another award up for grabs is the Most Improved Player. You can make the case that Joe Harris continued to improve (to the tune of leading the NBA in three-point shooting), however oftentimes you get overshadowed in a situation like this where you have a Nets team

69 percent of fans around the league believe Randle should win the 2020-21 Most Improved Player award. The next closest player, Michael Porter Jr., received 11 percent of the vote.

50 percent of national fans believe Thibodeau has earned the Coach of the Year award this season. Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams took 23 percent.

Man, Thibs had quite the year, but hard to vote against Monty Williams.
