The Brooklyn Nets have caught on fire and you can see it in their record. The Nets now have a record of 23-15, which makes them second in their division and fourth in the Eastern Conference, sitting just two games behind the New York Knicks. You can thank new head coach P.J. Carlesimo for this drastic turn around. Before the firing of Avery Johnson the Nets were sitting with a below .500 record. Under Carlesimo, the Nets are a blistering 9-1.
But all these successes are not just because of a coaching change. The players started to produce, especially Joe Johnson. Johnson is finally producing the way the Nets expected him to when they got him this offseason. A few lineup changes, along with the increase in production from Johnson, have shot the Nets to the top of the East. Now the only question is: can the Brooklyn Nets keep it up?
