The Brooklyn Nets will be able to do their Black Friday shopping from home, or maybe get some rest as they begin a four-game home stand tomorrow, Friday, against the Minnesota Timberwolves, the Philadelphia 76ers Sunday, the Utah Jazz Wednesday and the Memphis Grizzlies next Friday.

Tomorrow’s game with the Timbs starts at noon, interrupting your shopping activity. Sunday’s game against Philly begins at 6 p.m., in the middle of scheduled football games, but they bring some big name players to Atlantic and Flatbush: Karl Anthony-Townes, Andrew Wiggins and Derrick Rose for Minnesota and Ben Simmons, Joel Embid and Jimmy Butler for the Sixers. This game will be Wiggins’ first appearance in Brooklyn since being traded to Philadelphia by Minnesota earlier this month.

Brooklyn had impressively mounted a .500 record before losing their next 4 of 5 games. They started this week with two road games, the Miami Heat Tuesday night and the Dallas Mavericks Wednesday, before returning home for the Thanksgiving holiday to prepare for the weekend.

In the one win against the Washington Wizards Friday, Spencer Dinwiddie and D’Angelo Russell led the Nets in scoring, with 25 and 23, respectively. Dinwiddie, off the bench, also contributed eight assists and four rebounds. Russell also dropped 31 points with six assists in Minnesota.

The Nets’ Washington win follows the loss of Caris LeVert, their leading scorer, for an undetermined amount of time, after he dislocated his right foot, a subtalar dislocation.

“We love Caris,” said Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson. “We miss him, but we’ve got some good players in that locker room.”

They do. Brooklyn has had key players Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Joe Harris step up all season, and they will continue as they navigate their way to a higher seed in the Eastern Conference
