The Nets closed out 2022 with the longest winning streak in the NBA.
And they rung in 2023 with the look of a legitimate title contender — mainly because they’re focusing on today and not getting distracted by tomorrow.
The Nets cruised to a 123-106 victory over the Hornets on Saturday night at Spectrum Center. The victory ended a three-game, all-business trip. They dispatched the Hornets and headed straight to the airport, getting in the air roughly as New Year’s Eve ended.
“Really, my message to the group before the game is let’s finish the year off in the right way. And that’s taking care of [this] game,” coach Jacque Vaughn said. “I’ll turn the page once we get to 2023 and fill you in on what the [New Year’s] resolution is going to be, but it’s really keeping this group in the now, playing today’s game, and let’s just win today’s game.”
