The Hawks had the best record in the Eastern Conference last season and they have gotten off to a good start this season winning 4 of 5 games and 4 straight. On the other side of the coin the Nets are still looking for their first win of the season.
The Hawks eliminated the Nets in 6 games in the first round of the playoffs last season.
In their last games the Hawks beat the Miami Heat 98-92 and the Nets lost to the Milwaukee Bucks 103-96.
This season the Hawks are 1-1 at home and the Nets are 0-2 on the road.
In their 4 games the Nets have lost by an average of 14.3 ppg.
The Nets played terrible defense in their loss to the Bucks allowing Milwaukee to shoot over 52% from the floor. Joe Johnson went for 14 points in the game, but struggled with his shot and so far on the season he is averaging 9.3 ppg, which is about half his career average.
No surprise that the Nets are winless considering they only rank 29th in the league in scoring and 22nd in opponents’ points allowed.
Brook Lopez has been playing well and there are 4 Brooklyn players that are averaging in double figures, but Johnson needs to break out of his scoring slump.
This is not a good match up for the Nets struggling offense that will face a Atlanta defense that ranks 8th in the league in opponents’ points allowed.
Oklahoma City Thunder
Millsap and Horford combined for 11 offensive rebounds in the win over the Heat and Lopez and the Nets have to keep them from dominating the glass and getting 2nd chances on the offensive end of the court.
Jeff Teague scored 26 points in the win over the Heat and it will be key that the Nets defend him well and disrupt his passing to the many scoring options that Atlanta has.
The Nets are off their worst start since the 2009-2010 season when they set a league record by beginning the season with 18 straight losses.
