It’s getting... ugly. This Nets team has lost whatever mojo it had earlier in the season. Doesn’t help that the skid started when they rested all of their players in a winnable game against Milwaukee — but even beyond that, they’ve lost nine of the last 11.
WHEN: 8:00 PM ET
WHERE: YES Network (TV); WFAN-FM (Radio)
Injuries: No Ben Simmons. No Lonnie Walker IV ... yet.
Dillon Brooks is out with a right oblique strain. Victor Oladipo is out with a left patella tendon injury. Tari Eason is questionable with left lower leg soreness.
The Game: It takes time for young players to find their groove. Young players, and young guards especially have it tough in the early stages of their careers. The defenses they’re seeing now are miles ahead of what they saw in the amateur ranks. The level of responsibility on their shoulders is up tenfold. And if you aren’t able to show enough good signs early, it leaves fans wondering if you can reach your star potential. That’s where Rockets guard Jalen Green finds himself currently.
