The Nets are 2-9. Here’s the latest news and notes from around the ‘Nets:

  • Brook Lopez says that despite a 1-9 record (now 2-9), the Nets aren’t quitting this year… leaving little to the imagination about past seasons.

  • A small Nets-related chuckle in Zach Lowe’s latest on “(Kobe Bryant) coughed up the ball left and right, launched horrible shots and admired those horrible shots for so long that Joe Johnson leaked out for multiple fast-break chances. Do you know how far behind the play you have to be for creaky Joe Johnson to decide, “Oh, wow, I might be able to score in transition if I just jog a little”?”

  • The second half Tuesday night featured a little lineup re-jiggering: Brook Lopez played 18 minutes at center, and Thomas Robinson played the remaining six. None for Andrea Bargnani, who posted a -12 in three first-half minutes.

  • In the win, the Nets posted their lowest attendance mark ever at Barclays Center — the second time they’ve, ahem, broken that record this season.

  • Facilitator Joe is catching on. If only someone predicted that.

  • Before Saturday night, Bojan Bogdanovic had shot within one make of 50% in every single game. Since then, he’s hit just one of his last 10 shots, and has two points in 57 minutes.
  • As of today, Comcast will no longer carry YES Network. Plan accordingly.
  • After almost beating the Warriors and then beating the Hawks, this take looks a lot more overwrought.

  • Thaddeus Young, who fell awkwardly at the end of Nets-Hawks, underwent a precautionary MRI on his right wrist. It came back negative and he’s expected to play Wednesday.
