Nets vs. Bobcats 3/6/13

Here are some notes for those fans getting ready to watch the Brooklyn Nets (34-26) who are on the road to take on the Charlotte Bobcats (13-45) in NBA action.

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 Recap:

Brooklyn dropped the second half of their home/road back-to-back games with a loss to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. Brook Lopez led all scorers with 22 points and added three blocked shots.

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.

All-Time against the Bobcats:

Brooklyn holds a 22-9 overall record against the Bobcats, with the biggest victory coming on December 28, 2012-which was a 97-81 decision at the Barclays Center.

In that game, which was P.J. Carlesimo’s first game as interim head coach, the guys were able to end their two game losing-streak with the victory.

The Nets and Bobcats game is set to air on the YES Network, with tip-off slated for 7:00 p.m.
