Th Hawks need to focus on controlling final moments pressure and speed up the passing game if they want to win against the Nets on Sunday.
DeAndre’ Bembry remains ruled out dealing with a wrist fracture for Sunday’s clash.
Nets lost their season opener by a score of 9 points against the Pacers. But they fought back for a 126-121 win against Orlando Magic to pick up their first win of the season in their home opener.
Playing without Jeremy Lin, players deeper from the rotation around 11 players scored 64 points in the win against Orlando. The second-youngest player in the Nets in franchise history, 19-year-old Jarrett Allen showed the reasons why he was the 22nd overall pick in the NBA Draft. Playing 14 minutes in his NBA debut, the teenager notched crucial 9 points, 2 rebounds, a steal and a block for the win.
The spotlight will be on Allen when hits the court on Sunday against the Hawks.
Nets’ will be tightening their defense, which allowed 140 points in their opening game. Center Timofey Mozgov need to play a bigger role.
