The San Antonio Spurs (45-9) will face the New Jersey Nets (17-38) tonight in New Jersey as the Rodeo Road Trip continues. Before tip-off I spoke to Nets’ center Brook Lopez on his thoughts heading into the matchup versus the Spurs.
“Yeah it’s a great challenge for us. We can definitely come out with a win tonight. We just have to play they way I know we can play. Playing good defense, limit them to one board. Getting out and really let everyone touch the ball on the offensive end.”
Lopez on what head coach Avery Johnson has brought to New Jersey from his days with the Spurs:
“A decent amount. I think it’s mostly the winning experience.”
