The Brooklyn Nets will open up the Barclays Center in a Sunday matinee against LaMelo Ball and the 2-0 Charlotte Hornets.

The Brooklyn Nets stole a win in Philadelphia on Friday night to gain a little momentum before the home opener on Sunday. LaMelo Ball and the Charlotte Hornets are in town.

The Hornets will be the weakest of Brooklyn’s first three opponents, but they won’t be pushovers. There is a nice collection of talent on this Charlotte roster with Ball, Gordon Hayward, Miles Bridges, and Terry Rozier. The Hornets are off to a perfect 2-0 start after beating the Pacers and Cavaliers.
