Atlanta
Brooklyn

[BROOKLYN] — The Brooklyn Nets played host to the Atlanta Hawks last night but don't think that the home cooking gave them any sort of advantage. The 97-117 loss has the Nets and their fans cringing as they brace for their next opportunity to redeem themselves. The loss bumps Brooklyn's record down to 8-29 on the season, while the victory gives Atlanta a 22-16 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Nets would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

While there were no historic individual performances to speak of, Dennis Schroder's 19 points, 1 rebounds, 10 assists, 0 blocks and 2 steals in 29 minutes will serve fantasy owners well. Most importantly, the Hawks managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Schroder keeps producing at this rate and Atlanta keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Brooklyn didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Paul Millsap did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 14 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Nets can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Brooklyn wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the New Orleans Pelicans. The Hawks, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Boston Celtics.
