If the Nets were to win it would extend the road winning streak to three games, which matches the longest stretch of the season. A victory would also snap a four-game losing streak to the Hornets, which dates back to 3/7/08.
A victory tonight would be the ninth victory against the Western Conference this season, the most since winning 11 games against the West in the 2010-11 season, it’d mark the second time in four seasons winning at least nine games.
Over the last five games, the Nets have been shooting 43.9 % from three-point range and made 10.8 from beyond the arc.
The Nets and Hornets game is set to air on the YES Network, with tip-off scheduled for 8:00 p.m.
