With the NBA on hiatus — which NBA commissioner Adam Silver set at 30 days — and New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, placing a ban on gatherings of more than 500 people for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus outbreak in the United States, no Brooklyn Nets games will be played for the time being.

For the Nets, as much as any team, this comes at an odd time — Brooklyn was battling the Orlando Magic for the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference standings. At the stoppage of play, the Nets had a half-game advantage over the Magic.

Since there aren’t any games, each day Nets Wire will highlight major individual performances and key developments throughout Nets history:

Reggie Evans’ lone full season with the Brooklyn Nets was the best, in terms of rebounding, in his NBA career.

If you look at his career per-game totals, his highest rebounds per game average came in 2010-11 (11.5). However, Evans only played in 30 games that season.

Whereas, when he was in Brooklyn for all of 2012-13, Evans averaged 11.1 boards per game over 80 contests. And the forward’s biggest night came on March 27, 2013, when he grabbed 26 rebounds in the Nets’ 111-93 win over the Portland Trail Blazers (full box score).

Evans set a new career-high by reaching the mark — and he would never tie the total in a single game throughout the rest of his NBA career. He also tied his career-high in points with 22.

Brook Lopez led the Nets in scoring with 28 in the win, while Deron Williams had a team-high 10 assists. Gerald Wallace, Marshon Brooks and Andray Blatche all scored 12 points apiece. Keith Bogans pitched in 11.
