Current record: 31 wins and 28 losses

Current Ranking: Eighth in the East

Looking back on the performance of this season so far, the Nets have been on a roller coaster, and after reaching the top of the Eastern Conference, they fell all the way to the playoffs. After the trade deadline, with the arrival of new aid, the team ended a long 11-game losing streak and finally ushered in signs of recovery.

At the beginning of the season, it made great progress and climbed to the top of the Eastern Conference.

As this season’s championship favorite, the Nets, with many All-Star players, made great strides at the beginning of the season. With a 26-point away victory over the Lakers and a 4-point victory over the defending champion Bucks at home, the Nets ushered in a perfect start to the new season. Throughout November, the team has won 11 of 14 games and is firmly in the top three in the Eastern Conference.

With Irving out, Durant played well, averaging 29.3 points per game, his best performance in the past decade. Although Harden’s data has declined compared to the past, he has contributed to attracting defense and connecting the team on the offensive end of the Nets. Under the leadership of Duha’s dual core, the role players around him also shine. Aldridge and Mills averaged 13.8 points and 13.4 points per game, and Mills hit 42% of his three-pointers.

Entering January, Irving was allowed to play away games, and the three giants combined to fill the Nets’ offensive firepower, once the Bulls, who were at the top of the Eastern Conference at the time, blew 26 points. After 45 games, the Nets topped the Eastern Conference strongly, and the whole Brooklyn once again sounded a warm call to win the championship.

However, the good times did not last long. Due to the Nets’ play style relying too much on the stars, Durant’s body has experienced huge consumption. In the game against the Pelicans, Durant sprained the medial collateral ligament in his left knee and will miss 4-6 weeks. The star suffered a serious injury, and the Nets, which had just started, fell to the bottom.

Long 11-game losing streak fell to eighth in the East

Before the Nets could wait for Durant to return, Harden was on the sidelines with a left hamstring injury, and the team suffered a heavy blow. In addition, Irving can only play in away games, and a variety of unfavorable factors coexist, making this championship-winning team an instant “belly”.

When the Big Three only had Irving to play with a single core, the Nets’ offense was too single-pointed. Not to mention the home game in which Irving was absent, the Nets faced the Green Army and was once beaten 28-2 by the opponent at the beginning, and the offense was completely stagnant. The ball could not be scored, and the defense could not be prevented, and finally let the opponent win by 35 points.

During the 11-game losing streak, the Nets averaged 107 points per game, which was really pitiful, and the shooting percentage was only 44.6%, ranking sixth in the league in both data.
