Jerry Stackhouse still had some basketball to play. The Hawks may not have seen it last season but Stackhouse is making the most of his chance with the Nets this season. Stackhouse has appeared in 24 of the Nets' 39 games this season and is averaging 5.2 points and 15.3 minutes. He has had four double-digit scoring games already, including a high game of 17 points. Last season with the Hawks, he appeared in 3.0 games and averaged 3.6 points in 9.1 minutes. He had a high-game total of 11 points "I don't know that I was really looked at to come in and get a shot, in fairness to them," Stackhouse told the AJC before Wednesday's game. "I think it was kind of a surprise that I even came to camp last year but in the back of mind I would like to have had the scenario last year that I had this year, to come in and still play and find your way into the rotation. It just didn't happen. The few minutes I did get, I tried to make the most of them.
Stackhouse taught and learned in time with Hawks
