Three hurdles wait for the Nets this game:

1) beat dallas...which they haven't done in a long time

2) get better than '8-over-.500' record...which they've been 3-4 times this season but always lost the next game (usually many games)

3) Beat an elite team on national tv in a convincing fashion

Difficult task but i believe in this team :banana:

We can't keep getting blown out by the Mavs. I think Kidd has yet to beat the Mavs as a Net. He needs to get out of his shooting funk & get a triple double.

We need to give payback to the Dallas Mavericks because we have not had that much success over the years against them. It should be a very entertaining matchup nonetheless. I might be in attendance for this game. I love to see Dirk Nowitzki play, I'm hoping the Nets could pull out a win somehow.

that was my first thought. He's started the last few games for them.
He is our rookie this year; played in the D-League for a couple games. He plays like Josh Howard but not even close to his level. He's there cuz our bench is very depleted.

Be more worried about Dampier this game, he's been on a good stretch for some of the last games coming of the bench.

This will be a tough game for Dallas because our injured will really be missed. Adrian Griffin and Josh Howard, easily our two best perimeter defenders, are both out - and against a team like NJ with Vince and RJ (and even Kidd? although he has been scoring crapply lately) we will struggle because odds are they both will probably have good nights

I invite you guys over to get the Mavericks fans perspective, we need some activity aswell
Link - Dallas v Nets

Something else I noticed is that a lot of the Mavericks don't have the most impressive stats, their contribution goes way beyond numbers; For example, DeSagana Diop's stats are 2.3 ppg and 4.7 rpg, pretty crap for a starting center right? Well he is the spearhead of our much improved defense and we've gone 25-4 since he came into the starting lineup.

Dampier should have a big game against you guys, he has been averaging 9 rebounds a game in the past 15 matches and he seems to finally be the player we want - but he's coming off the bench

Good luck!

Yeah. This team isn't quite as good as the one that beat the Nets' asses earlier this season.

i remember that too


well back on topic.. i didnt realize how depleted the dallas bench was... wow the nets bench may have a chance to outscore their bench...We dont necessarily need kidd to score, but just distribute like he's been doing to VC, RJ, and Nenad, and we should be in a good position...And we must hit open Js

Also, we shud try to limit the impact of other players, and jus try to defend Dirk as much as possible.. In the past week, this is wat has led us to defensive success..

I hope we get Dirk on an off night.
Believe me man you are not the only one who is praying for that. Any player on the Dallas Mavericks roster is capable of having a big game. So we are going to have to let our defense fuel our offense and produce the win.

I agree Air Fly we need to show people throughout the league that we are capable of beating the elite teams. And to beat the Dallas Mavericks tomorrow will start our postseason push and there will be talks around the league about our team. I'm praying for a win.
