Nets Schedule: Rare Chance For Some Home Cooking

Following a 70-loss season that included more than a month of games before their first victory, it's hard to imagine the New Jersey Nets are too broken up about their 2-4 record. However, after opening up with back-to-back wins the Nets have come up empty.

After a tough week of losses to the Charlotte Bobcats at home before a tough weekend in Florida against the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat, the Nets return home this week to play two games at the Prudential Center. 

New Jersey will kick things off with a home-and-home against the surprisingly spunky (and first place) Cleveland Cavaliers. The first game is Tuesday night at the Rock before finishing the series off back in Cleveland for the only road game of the week on Wednesday

The Nets then get to come back home on Saturday for a re-match with Dwight Howard. Considering he dropped 30 points and 16 rebounds on New Jersey down in Orlando this past weekend, the Nets won't exactly be looking forward to hosting the Magic center.

If the Nets want to avoid a prolonged slump, they will need to take care of business this week. Once they are done with Orlando, New Jersey heads across the country to kick off a 4-game west coast swing.

Center Brook Lopez is pacing the Nets with 18.8 points per game but will be looking to rebound from a poor weekend in Florida. Against the Heat and Magic Lopez could only muster 11 points and 4 rebounds while shooting .242 from the field.

Here are the rest of the Nets stats.
