All I am saying with the performance against the Golden State Warriors, improve all aspects of our game. Hopefully Vince Carter will be all right. I am looking forward to seeing what Shareef Abdur Rahim has to put out. Need to get redemption and win these games on our West Coast trip.

I always tried to be positive and was agaisnt against trads(still I am). But this was not the record I was expecting. Now I think who is the one to blame. Lets say its early. But we losed to worse teams than us. We still haven't played against SA or Det. I hope this game changes something. This losses and wins will be very precious at the end of season.

Wow... you're really fast ToddMac! Great job on the game thread once again... :clap:

After that painful loss tonight, the injury (hopefully not serious) of VC, miserable shooting percentage (field goal and free throws), again negligible defense (geez.. I was so positive we could defend well after that win against the Wizards), etc etc.. so many negative things... I can only hope (and pray) that the team will bounce back and win this game against the Kings.

Come on Nets! Please.... win your next few games... :angel: :angel:

Do you now if Peja is ready for this game?
and what about Carter?
I didn't even know Peja was out....I changed it and put Garcia in for the Kings, since he started yesterday. But I have no idea what his status is for the game.

And from the sounds of it, unless he is feeling real bad today or tomorrow, Vince is planning on going

Extremely tough game. SAC town always plays better at home. The Kings are still gelling but once they gel they will be tough cookies. Please let VC play and our bench to do something.

Not only is ARCO Arena, one of the toughest arenas to play in. But they have great players still to back up their supporting crowd. Mike Bibby who had 33 points last game, Bonzi Wells who has been grabbing double digits in rebounds for quite sometime, Shareef Abdur Rahim who has been somewhat of a bright spot. And their main star in my opinion in Peja Stojakovic, a pure shooter and can fill the lanes. Can also not take Brad Miller lightly, he could do damage with his jumper if we let him. We will have a test and hopefully we come out of it positively with no more injuries. We need to stay healthy and keep producing wins.

Yeah... this game is going to be tough. I just hope the team plays well. It would be nice to get a win soon so that the team regains some positive outlook considering all these present injuries to key players like VC and Collins.

If Peja doesnt play (sprained finger, I think), does that negate the absence of VC if he cant play due to his back injury? At least scoring-wise or on the offensive side of the court?

I hope the entire team steps up! Go Nets!

This was looking to be a tough one for the Nets before Vince went down.... Sacto is exactly the kind of team that has always given us trouble in the JKidd era. THey are the kind of team that no matter what you do defensively, they are likely to drop 100+ on you. So to beat them you've got to be able to fill it up yourself. That is not a Net specialty. Wo/ Vince this is going to be an extra tough trip. Hopefully he can play.
