Brooklyn Nets take on fellow Western Conference rival Houston Rockets at Barclays Center. Nets are 1-3 in the season, following two straight defeats, while Rockets improved their regular-season record to 3-1 after recording three consecutive wins.
Nets had one of its most productive offseasons in recent memory after signing Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant this summer. Though Durant is probably out for the rest of the seasons, Nets still remain in the contender picture this season. Nets’ roster has players like Joe Harris, Spencer Dinwiddie, DeAndre Jordan, Taurean Prince, and Jarret Allen. It’s no wonder why the fans are excited this season.
But the Nets are yet to hit their strides this season. They are 1-3 from the first four games but had a couple of close finishes. Just like the last game against Indiana Pacers where they maintained distance from their opponents for the most part of the game but ended up losing 108-118.
With so many new faces, Nets need time to get the full potential out of their roster.
Houston Rockets also added All-Star Russell Westbrook in the off-season with Chris Paul heading to Oklahoma City Thunder. Westbrook has made an impact already on his new team. The offense is the best in the league at the moment, as Rockets average 128 points per game. But Mike D’Antoni has to shore things up in defense.
