5 Changes Brooklyn Nets Must Make Before the Postseason

Reggie Evans has been a rebounding machine, but he's averaging just 3.6 points per game.

The Brooklyn Nets (37-26) are on somewhat of a roll after winning three consecutive games, but a few changes must be made for the team to be competitive in the postseason.

The Nets have a great chance to extend their win streak to four games against the woeful Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night. A win in Philly will help Brooklyn maintain its stranglehold on the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference, but it won’t change the fact that the team lost four of five games from Feb. 22 to March 2.

The opponents Brooklyn beat during its recent three-game run, the Charlotte Bobcats, Washington Wizards and Atlanta Hawks, have a combined record of 67-119. So it’s nothing to get overly excited about.

The Nets still have some issues.

They’ve performed poorly against above-.500 competition, struggled in third quarters and have turned the ball over at an alarming rate. To make matters worse, injured shooting guard Joe Johnson is averaging just 11.6 points in his last five games, and $40 million man Gerald Wallace has shot 37.8 percent since the All-Star break.
