WE’RE GOING STREAKING: The Nets have won their last three opening games and have won four in a row against the Cavaliers. The Nets actually snapped a nine-game losing streak against the Cavs in November 2010 and have won 10 of 12 against them since.

SIX FOR THE BOOKS: Kevin Garnett, who currently has 25,274 points, needs just six more to move past Reggie Miller into 14th place on the all-time scoring list.

SEVEN FOR THE BOOKS: Brook Lopez, who currently has 2,392 rebounds in his career, needs just seven more to move past Keith Van Horn into eighth place on the Nets’ all-time list.

D-WILL IS BACK: Deron Williams missed most of the preseason, but started in the final game against the Heat where he shot 4-of-5 from the field and 3-of-3 from three.

MISSING KIDD: Jason Kidd is out tonight and everyone expected Lawrence Frank to take his place, but the Nets had Joe Prunty speaking with reporters prior to the game.
