Prediction

- 101
- 109

I don't like our chances against the Nets. Considering we can't play a lick of defense now-a-days, I don't think we're going to fair all that well tonight.

Nets in by a close one. :2gunsfiring:

Predict and discuss!

FYI: Vince may not play tonight because of issues with his ankle. He sat out last night's loss to the Pistons, so he's apparently he's going to be a game time decision tonight.

I'd like to see us win by shutting down NJ with an improved defense and taking it to the net or getting to the foul line.

OK, I'll edit the starting line-up then.

I swear to God we better win this game. I've had enough of their crappy defence. Take advantage of Vince not playing, stop acting like a bunch of pussys and win this damn game tonight.

The End.

we're 6-17 since march 1. 11 games under .500. that is fucking sad. it doesnt matter if we win or lose tonight, the way we've been playing since about january has been disgustingly mediocre. doesnt matter who we play in the playoffs. if we're getting handled by the bobkittens and hawks...

Really, I don't notice it that much. But then again I tend to be a little 100% blind sometimes so..

Is it just me or does it seem like the refs are letting them get away with a lot in our favor?

That play earlier really looked like goaltending

I suspect that after we're done sputtering this season and then get swept in the playoffs there will be some major changes with this team in the offseason.

we need to shut down Bosh for the rest of the game something... he's DEAD. Play Hump, at least he can bring energy.

Oh man, can we beat anybody these days?

We need to play with some urgency - there should be a lifelong commitment to beat down Vince every time we play him
