New Jersey Nets Notes, Quotes 2009-10-08

New Jersey Nets Notes, Quotes 2009-10-08--G Devin Harris is curious about the replacement refs.

"I've never been in the situation before," Harris said, "but as long as they're calling fouls I'm good with that. As long as I can get to the free throw line, there's nothing I can really fault."

And that is what may eventually trouble Harris. He was among the league leaders, shooting 8.8 free throws a game last season.

"It could affect me," he said. "I'm great at drawing fouls."

--The Nets' early emphasis has been on defense and then more defense. Coach Lawrence Frank, although saddled with one of the NBA's most mediocre offenses last season (20th in points, 24th in shooting) insists the Nets will have to do it with defense first -- they were 17th and 19th in scoring and field goal defense last season. One of Frank's initial goals is improvement on guarding the dribble.

"We're going to have to," Frank said. "Every team has a hard time guarding the dribble. The rules favor the offense, scoring improved every single year for a reason. So the first thing is we have to at least defend the first dribble. It's not enough for us to be in help position. We have to recover out and make the multiple effort to get out there."

Are the Nets equipped to do so?

"I think so, without a doubt," Frank said of the Nets, who have far better perimeter quickness this season.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We're talented but if you look at it on paper, we're not as talented as other teams. So we have to make up for it with hard work and aggressiveness and obviously having a defensive presence." -- G Devin Harris, stressing the Nets' need for improved defense.
