Good to see some NBA action on at 8 a.m. — Nets-Rockets live from China. Brook Lopez continues to impress. On one possession, he hit an 18-footer on the move; a few trips later, he pump fakes from the same spot on the floor and drives to the hoop for a lay-in. The Nets need a few more pieces, but this is a team that should be improved in 2010-11. A big key will Troy Murphy’s back. The guy is a consistent — and underrated — producer, but he needs to be on the floor. It’s clear that Derrick Favors is not ready to play major minutes.
