As Brooklyn Nets continue winning, more attendees at games (though still last in the league)

A little more than halfway through the 82-game season, with 24 home games, the Brooklyn Nets are still last in attendance in the NBA, according to ESPN, but, as noted by the New York Post, in Nets’ recent hot streak finally boosting attendance at Barclays:
During the Nets’ first 13 games at home this season — in which they went just 3-10 — their average attendance was 13,813. In their last 11 home games — in which they are 10-1 — the average attendance has bumped up to 14,889.
If they were to continue that pace, they might overtake the Phoenix Suns, currently averaging 14,786, but would have to increase attendance even more to rise higher.

Note that the Detroit Pistons, with a larger arena, have averaged more attendees but have an emptier building.

Also note that the average Nets attendance, 14,303, is said to be 79% of capacity, but 79% of 14,303 is 79% of 18,105, while the arena seats 17,732 for basketball. That means the arena is slightly more full: 80.7% of capacity, which beats the Minnesota Timberwolves, as well.
