Hopeless Nets look to stave off Hawks at home With each passing game, it becomes clearer and clearer that the Brooklyn Nets, as currently composed, are not long for this world.

Nets-Sixers — what else is there to say?

Bojan Bogdanovic Per-Game Statistics: 79 G, 39 GS, 26.8 MIN, 11.2 PTS, 3.2 REB, 1.3 AST, 0.4 STL, 0.1 BLK, 1.5 TOV, .433 FG%, .382 3PT%, .833 FT%, .519 eFG%, .550 TS%, 10.7 PER After a strong second half to close the 2014-15 season, many fans felt optimistic that Bogdanovic would take the next step forward in his NBA career. Whatever the reason was (sophomore slump, Lionel Hollins’s system, waning confidence), the second year Bosnian was very disappointing during the first half of the season. Certainly his performance improved post All-Star break, but there were still inconsistencies in his offensive game and limitations on the defensive side of the court that make you wonder if can truly be a cornerstone piece of a competitive team. For every 20-point output (or the 44-point explosion against Philadelphia) there seems to be a 2-12 dud just waiting to happen. At 26 years old, maybe this is just who he is as a player -- an inconsistent, streaky shooter. -Jonathan Griggs
