The Nets try really hard not to have the worst record in NBA history
After 66 games the New Jersey Nets only have 7 wins. Ouch. They need 3 wins to get to 10, and thus avoiding the shame of having the worst record in the history of the NBA.
The Nets can and should avoid that record. Yes, they have had stretches like 18 consecutive losses. But twice they won three in 14 games and once three in 15games. So it’s possible.
Also, the schedule lightens up a little with seven games currently against teams under .500, including at Philadelphia, Washington and Indiana and home for Sacramento, Detroit and Chicago.
Really, the only thing the Nets have to play for at this point? Their pride and avoiding the record that the franchise will have to live with forever. But it’s going to take a commitment to doing what needs to be done on both ends of the floor.
Current worst record? Philadelphia 76's in the 1972-1973 season. They went 9-73.
So, can the Nets steal the title?
