NEW YORK — Though the Brooklyn Nets are coming off of a win over the Detroit Pistons, the real test was Tuesday’s game against the Lakers.
At their new home at Barclays Center, the Nets lost a home game against a quality opponent that just so happened to be playing without two starters in Dwight Howard and Metta World Peace. The latter was suspended, this time, for a shot to the face of Detroit Pistons guard, Brandon Knight.
The Nets were down early, but led by one-point with 2:32 remaining in the game.
