Brooklyn Nets head coach is through with the losing. He had two years of that in New Jersey, and enough is enough.
He knows one way to win, and it starts with defense … and his eyes tell him the Nets’ defense isn’t ready for the regular season:
Avery ran his team through their most physical practice Sunday, right before they opened Barclays Center for the fans, and put on a much friendlier show. Following two straight home losses, the Nets have work to do before the last preseason game. And much more work to do before they feel good about playing a game that counts November 1st.
