(AP) — Now that the Brooklyn Nets finally have their first December win, they can focus on ending their struggles at the Barclays Center.
With their starting center expected back, the Nets look to avoid a fifth consecutive home defeat Friday night against a Detroit Pistons team that has struggled to win on the road.
Brooklyn (12-9) won seven of the first eight at its swanky new arena. However, since allowing 87.0 points per contest while winning six straight there, the Nets have given up 105.8 during their four-game home skid.
They blew a 17-point lead in a 100-97 home loss to rival New York on Tuesday, but bounced back to snap their five-game overall slide with a 94-88 win over Toronto on Wednesday.
