Nets Near Loss Record

The New Jersey Nets may soon tie the record for least successful start in NBA history. After a loss Friday night, the Nets are 0-16—one loss away from the worst start in NBA history. In order to avoid tying the loss record held by the 1988 Miami Heat and the 1999 Los Angeles Clippers, the Nets will have to beat the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
