Nets' improved defense to be tested by Knicks' Porzingis

NEW YORK -- The overall picture shows some porous defensive numbers for the Brooklyn Nets. A closer look at recent results demonstrates some improvements, though.

Brooklyn's defense will face a stiff challenge trying to contain Kristaps Porzingis Thursday night when it hosts the New York Knicks.

Brooklyn is allowing 110.6 points per game, which ranks as among the worst in the league. The Nets are a middle of the pack team in opponent's field goal percentage at 45.3 percent and are above average at defending the 3-pointer at 35.6 percent.
