Since the arrival of James Harden the Brooklyn Nets became the worst defensive team in the NBA. In their most recent win, the Nets allowed 120 points from the Los Angeles Clippers.
Brooklyn head coach Steven Nash sees room for improvement for his team on the defensive. However, with three superstar goalscorers in Kevin Durant, James Harden and Kyrie Irving, firepower alone can be enough to win a few games.
“If we bring that with us every night, we may not be able to distinguish ourselves as a great defensive team. But we can at least be a solid defensive team and take care of the things that we can control, ”said Nash via Mark Medina from USA Today. “And they have to protect us too. I think we still have a lot to do at this end of the floor. But I don’t want to make predictions. “
