The Brooklyn Nets have done an outstanding job stifling their opponents this month. That, however, only continues if they limit the output of everyone not named Tim Hardaway Jr. and Kristaps Porzinigs. Hardaway has returned from injury and looks like he never left. In two games, he’s pouring in 20.5 points on 46.7 percent shooting. Porzingis, who’s dropping a cool 19.9 a night, has found his stroke from outside, connecting on 41.2 percent of his triples.
