Meanwhile, the Nets find themselves on the third spot on the Eastern Conference standings having registered 13 wins and nine defeats. 
The two-time ABA champions suffered a 149-146 defeat to Washington Wizards in their last away game which was played on 1 February 2021. 
The defeat ended the Nets' two-match unbeaten run on the road having registered two successive wins. 

Steve Nash, the Nets head coach, says they need to look inward in order to improve their defence. 
“I think we need to improve, and we need to look inward to improve,” Nash said.
“If roster composition changes for the better defensively, that’s great. But I don’t think we can rely on that because that may not be possible.
"You know, it’s not like they’re just falling off trees for us to pick up guys that are going to change our defence."
