Philadelphia
Brooklyn

[BROOKLYN] — The Brooklyn Nets played host to the Philadelphia 76ers last night and Nets fans will wish that they could have another crack at this one. The narrow 101-106 defeat was and still is a tough one to swallow. The loss bumps Brooklyn's record down to 16-58 on the season, while the victory gives Philadelphia a 28-46 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.

On this night it was Brook Lopez leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 26 points, 9 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 blocks and 0 steals in 31 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Most importantly, the 76ers managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Lopez keeps producing at this rate and Philadelphia 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, Robert Covington did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 21 points, 13 rebounds and 1 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 Detroit Pistons. The 76ers, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the Atlanta Hawks.
