New Jersey Nets Getting Inside 2009-11-03

New Jersey Nets Getting Inside 2009-11-03The Nets will win a game this season. Really.


But that victory could be a long time coming if they defend like they did Saturday or play offense like they did Monday. After a 123-point yield to Washington, a defensive display termed "pitiful" by coach Lawrence Frank, the Nets came apart offensively at Charlotte on Monday.

They endured a stretch of more than 10 minutes where they failed to score. Turnovers came in droves, almost as frequently as misses.

Additionally, they are banged up almost beyond recognition. Devin Harris and Jarvis Hayes have joined Keyon Dooling and Tony Battie in the infirmary -- and those are four rotation players. On top of that, Yi Jianlian sprained his knee Monday and there's no telling how long he'll be out.

To add to the joyous atmosphere, the Nets have Denver coming in on Wednesday, followed by a game at Philadelphia and a home game against Boston. The Nets insist their way out of the 0-4 mess they're in is with defense.

"We still have to focus on defense. I don't think offense is our problem. We can score," said veteran Rafer Alston. "We can figure a way to score points, but defense has to be there every single play, every single night. That cannot take a backseat to offense."

The Nets are searching for a consistency that has been hard to carve out with so many young faces.

"Youth is part of it. When you've been in the league you can really see it," Alston said. "The hustle and the intensity and the desire, we have to put all those together. ... Coach has talked about it, but as players we have to hold each other accountable when any of those three things are missing."

BOBCATS 79, NETS 68: The Nets stymied the Bobcats in the first half as Charlotte shot just 19 percent (8 of 42). At one point, the Nets led by 14. But then they stymied themselves in the second half with their own atrocious offense. The Nets went through a 10-minute scoreless stretch that spanned the third and fourth quarters. They finished with 26 turnovers -- and another loss. They're 0-4 despite 20 points from Chris Douglas-Roberts.
