New Jersey Nets Schedule: A Look At The Week Ahead

The New Jersey Nets opened the 2010-2011 NBA season with a pair of impressive victories, before LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat brought them back to earth with a 101-78 victory. Still, a good beginning for a team that won just 12 games a season ago.

The Nets have three games this week. Wednesday, they host the 0-3 Charlotte Bobcats at the Prudential Center. The Nets then face a difficult set of back-to-back road games, traveling to Orlando on Friday to face Dwight Howard and the Magic, then to Miami on Saturday for a rematch against the Heat.

Center Brook Lopez has been New Jersey's best player thus far, averaging 24.7 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. Point guard Devin Harris is scoring 18.7 points per game and has averaged 8.3 assists in the first three games. Derrick Favors, the 19-year-old rookie power forward drafted in the first round by the Nets, has impressed thus far. He is averaging 10.3 points and 10 rebounds per game in just 21 minutes.

The Nets are still without veteran power forward Troy Murphy, out since early in training camp with a back injury. Murphy could return to the court this week.
