Here are some notes for those fans getting ready to watch the Brooklyn Nets (48-33) play host to the Detroit Pistons (29-52) in NBA action at the Barclays Center.

If the Nets win it would sweep the season series with Detroit (4-0), while also giving the Nets their first four game winning streak against the Pistons in history and the first time the Nets have won a season series against the Pistons since ’94-’95.

A victory would also be the 26th home victory of the season, which would be tied for ninth most home wins in a single season in franchise history and the most home victories since the ’05-’06 season when they recorded 29 victories.

Nets Recap:

The Nets clawed their way back to defeat the Washington Wizards 106-101 on 4/15. Andray Blatche recorded his seventh double-double of the season to lead the way for the Nets offense.
