Nets need better defense against revamped Hawks

NEW YORK -- Based on early results, offense is not a problem for the Brooklyn Nets. As for defense, that's another story.

The Nets allowed 140 points in their season opener at Indiana on Wednesday and then 121 against Orlando on Friday. They are hoping their defense can improve Sunday afternoon when they host the Atlanta Hawks.

Brooklyn ranked 29th in points allowed at 112.5 while placing 23rd in defensive rating at 110.7 last season, when it lost 62 games. The Nets, after splitting their first two games, are allowing 130.5 points with a defensive rating of 118.3.
