Nets set to play first-ever game at new Barclays CenterPosted by Inside Hoops
The Nets are ready to finally take the floor at Barclays Center.
After months of preparations, the team will play its first game inside its new home Monday night against the Wizards.
“Everybody’s super-excited, I think,” said Joe Johnson prior to the team’s shootaround Monday morning. “We all feel as if this is a fresh start, and we want to make the best of it.
“We want to get off to a great start. We’ve had a great training camp, and we want to keep working hard to get better.”
The Nets will have plenty of opportunities to get used to their new home this week, as they’ll play three games here in the next five days. But while that will allow them to feel a little more comfortable in their new digs, coach Avery Johnson admitted it’s going to take awhile before it feels like they belong here.
