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 ESPN.com: “(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.
