The Brooklyn Nets are banking on their ability to work out all their growing pains by the all star break, and then going on a torrid run to end the second half with a top 4 seed in the playoffs.
Brooklyn has just two wins to begin the season, and the juggernaut we all expected to see has been slow to incorporate Garnett, Pierce and Kirilenko in Jason Kidd’s first season as head coach.
Garnett told the New York Daily News that “he feels like the Nets breakthrough is right around the corner.”
“I feel like it’s around the corner, to be honest,” Garnett said before the Nets’ loss to the Sacramento Kings.
“We need some wins. Like I said, we have to trust each other, trust the system and what we’re doing and we’ll be fine,” said Deron Williams. “We’ve got some things to work on, get better at and it’ll come. It’ll come.”
