They’re on the 2nd night of a B2B too. I think we got this. Caris has to shoot better, right?

Lev can shoot, can get to anywhere on the floor, can finish in traffic. if he could finish consistently with the touches he's getting he'd have all star numbers. I don't know if he gets to that, so for the time being he's a below average efficiency player with occasional flashes of greatness. I expect something like 20pts on sub 40% shooting. If there's enough playmaking to go along with that, while limiting turnovers, that's enough to eek out a win.

This is the first game I can remember, where I would take the sidelined guys over the ones playing, on both sides. This will not resemble either team at full strength, I hope we can dig deep for another W. Go Nets!

Another tough matchup for Big Jay. Valancunas is probably a top ten center. Hope we bring the dog mentality that we had last night.

Bad defense and decision making from the starters so far. Not a good sign. 2nd unit needs to pick us up.

This team is not good without Ja.

Really hoping we pull it out. We have the talent.

In the bubble he was putting up good enough efficiency. Not really sure what happened.

Finishing has been terrible. If he can just get that right he will be fine.

in my books that should be a shooting foul and maybe a flagrant. if you push an offensive player into a shooter, who then has his landing taken out... how the f*** is that a side out. It's definitely not a basketball play. Clarke getting to do whatever the f he wants like last game.

We need an injection of energy out there. They look like they played last night so far.

Like I said, the only thing keeping DJ from never seeing the floor again is the Claxton injury. He’s going to run away with the backup spot once he’s healthy. DJ is pathetic.
