Continued: High-spending Nets come to Target Center with dismal start

“You’re missing your key big man and your star point guard,” Terry said. “I don’t know how much success you’re going to have without that.”

And the Nets need time as well to learn each other in an Eastern Conference in which only four teams have winning records, none of them in Brooklyn’s Atlantic Division. Garnett, Pierce, Terry, Kirilenko, Shaun Livingston, Alan Anderson and rookie Mason Plumlee all were added this season.

“I’m not a genie, I’m not a fortune-teller,” Garnett told reporters Tuesday after he and Pierce refused to talk after Monday’s loss. “The only thing I know is just work through the process. We have a group of guys willing and committed to changing what the current is. It’s easy to give up and say, ‘You know what? This is too hard.’ But we don’t have that type of team, nor do we have that type of character.

“I really believe when you go through dismal times like this, it builds character. It shows you who’s within and who has the rope and who’s going to let go. It really separates the ones that are willing to fight and so far everybody’s in here. Everybody’s in the conversation. We’re in here.”
