Same Starting 5 for Nets vs. Kings

Deron WilliamsLionel Hollins will stick with the same starting 5 of Jarrett Jack, Sergey Karasev, Joe Johnson, Kevin Garnett, and Mason Plumlee against the Sacramento Kings, the Nets coach announced before the game.

Brook Lopez and Deron Williams will come off the bench for the fourth and third straight game, respectively. Lopez had just the second scoreless game of his career Saturday night against the Indiana Pacers, and Williams has hit just 4 of 13 shots in limited time behind Jarrett Jack.

It’s clear that Lopez & Williams will have to earn their starting spots back from Plumlee & Jack, who have both been on recent hot streaks.
