The Nets gave up 32 points in the paint after allowing 46 against the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. "What everybody has to understand still is we are obviously still a work in progress," Garnett said. "...Great game for us to learn from. We didnt pack the paint in as well as I think we can. We will get better." Kyle Singler had 11 points and rookie Tony Mitchell had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Pistons.

Nets backup point guard Tyshawn Taylor left the arena in a walking boot after he sprained his right foot, leaving Brooklyn with one healthy player at the point, the inexperienced Jorge Gutierrez, to backup Shaun Livingston while Williams heals up. "I mean hes going to be the engine thats going to drive this team at both ends of the court before we could really see how were going to reach our full potential," Pierce said of Williams. "So you know, its up to us with the guys that we have out there to continue to get better, to continue to understand what were trying to accomplish each and every night."
