If the Nets win it would extend the home winning-streak to a season-high seven games, while also moving interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo to 10-2, which is second best start for a coach in franchise history.
Milestone for the scorekeeper:
Friday night marks Nets official scorer Herb Turetzky’s 1,200th consecutive game worked and his 1,887th game overall for the organization. The streak began 29 seasons ago, as Turetzky is now in his 46th season as the Nets’ official scorer.
Brooklyn had their seven game-winning streak come to an end as the Nets fell to the Hawks on Wednesday. The Nets look to snap a six-game losing streak against Atlanta, this streak dates back to 3/26/11 and a two-game losing streak at home.
Reggie Evans continues to be a rebounding machine for the Nets, as the forward ranks first in the NBA in rebounds per 48 minutes thus far this season. Evans also is ranked first with a 23.7 total rebounding percentage.
