According to basketball reference the Nets are dead last in the NBA in pace at 87.9 possessions per game. (They’ve been moving a little faster under Carlesimo and that possession average will probably creep towards 90 near the end of the season.)
Brooklyn is fourth right now in the Eastern Conference standings behind Miami, Manhattan, and Indiana. Atlanta is sixth.
Reggie Evans’s defensive rebounding percentage is 30.9%. Al Horford, the 14th ranked rebounder in the league by rebs/game, grabs 19.4%.
7% of Brook Lopez’s shots are dunks. He makes a little over 93% of those dunk attempts. (The rest of his shooting breakdown: 45% jumpers, 42% close to the hoop, 6% tips).
56% of Josh Smith’s shot attempts are jumpers. His effective field goal percentage on those shots is 34%. 8% of his shots are dunks and he makes nearly 98% of those.
The Hawks are 2-6 in the month of January. They are 1-1 at home in that time with a loss to Boston and a win over Utah.
Brooklyn is now 7-0 in January. They are the only undefeated team this month.
Al Horford leads the Hawks in PER at 18.1. Josh Smith is second at 17.5. Brook Lopez leads the Nets in PER at 25.2 and Andray Blatche is second on the team at 23.3.
These two teams will meet again, in Brooklyn, on Friday.
