If the Nets win it would be the sixth consecutive victory against the Bobcats dating back to 1/22/12. Brooklyn has also been able to win the past three road games in Charlotte.
A victory would also give them a .574 winning percentage for the season, which would rank 5th-best in NBA franchise history for a season, while also putting the team on a pace for 47 wins which would rank for 5th best all-time.
Nets Individual Notes:
Throughout the season Deron Williams’ three-point shooting percentage has increased each month. Williams has also connected from beyond-the-arc in his last nine games, and has had multiple triples in eight of those contests.
In his first year as an All-Star Brook Lopez is the only player in the NBA averaging at least 18 points, seven boards and two-blocks-per-game. The fifth-year player currently ranks fourth in the NBA with a 24.6 player efficiency rating.
