Matchup to Watch
Mo Williams vs. Deron Williams: Deron Williams has been off his prior All-Star form for much of this season. Mo Williams has been a great trade-deadline pickup for the Hornets.
▪ The Nets got younger and more athletic at the trade deadline when they sent Kevin Garnett to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Thaddeus Young.
▪ Between two road trips and the All-Star break, the Nets went 24 days between home games. That’s the longest such span in franchise history.
▪ Nets center Brook Lopez has been playing as a reserve of late.
▪ This is the first of four sets of back-to-back games for the Hornets the rest of the month.

The Nets are the only team in the NBA with no disqualifications this season. The Hornets were the only other such team until Michael Kidd-Gilchrist fouled out during the four-game road trip.
