Steve Nash is asking for more time

Brooklyn Nets head coach Steve Nash says his team remain very much a work in progress ahead of the visit of Charlotte Hornets on Sunday.

Brooklyn are 4/17 in the Money Line, while Charlotte priced at 13/4.

Mixed start by Nets

The Nets are gearing up for their first home game of the season after back-to-back road trips.

Nash's side were well beaten in a 127-104 defeat at champions Milwaukee Bucks in their opener and then produced an impressive comeback win at Philadelphia 76ers, fighting back from 12 points down early in the fourth quarter to secure a 114-109 victory.

It's not going to be pretty for a little while here.

Brooklyn signed ten new players in the off-season and are without one of their big three as Kyrie Irving remains unavailable.

As such, Nash feels it will take time for his players to adapt but he is hoping they can build some momentum over the next few weeks.

Brooklyn will play their next six games at the Barclays Center, starting with Sunday's match-up with Charlotte, but Nash says home advantage isn't particularly important at this stage of his team's development.

Nash explains issues

"The home stand - look, if we were on the road, at home, we've got to go through this period where we're exploring and getting to know each other, trying to figure this thing out.," said Nash via the New York Post. "So, it doesn't really matter. We just take it as it comes."

He added: "It's not going to be pretty for a little while here. It takes time to find that rhythm and combinations. And also we lost a big piece (Irving).

"But hopefully in the weeks coming, we start to clear some of the debris so to speak and figure out how we can best play together."
