the 2 teams are similar in record and we both want to get to 50 wins. The media loves the Cavs understandably they have the boy wonder. Nets need to beat them and it will be sweet bc I'll be there!

Hot teams? These are the hottest.

The Cavs have won 9 of 10 and are just a game behind the Nets.


The Nets have won 14 in a row.

They have also won 27 of the last 30 home games.

Yeah but they also lost to the Knicks and it's not like their win streak was impressive. They beat Charlotte, Philly, Miami sans Shaq, Portland, Charlotte again, Boston, Houston, the Lakers, and Dallas. Dallas was on the second night of a back to back having played Detroit the night before. Cleveland = meh.

I believe this will be a great game. Lebron will once again be difficult to stop, so trying to limit him is the best a team can do. Luckily for the Nets, they have RJ who seems to be good at limiting him or getting him below his usual level of play. Murray has been playing well for the CAvs. He has hit some big shots and has had good games for the Cavs. The presence or absence of Z is going to be big... and if he plays, will he be 100%? Thats something which can be a very big factor in this game.

I hope the Nets learned from the near mishap these past 2 games against Atlanta and the Bobcats. They won both but they nearly lost the lead as well. If the Nets start out strong and become aggressive throughout, then the chances of winning this game are high. Kidd will have his way in the PG position, VC always plays well against the Cavs and RJ usually limits Lebron. If Krstic plays the way he has been during this streak then the Nets would be difficult to beat in this game. However, if the Nets are lackadaisical and just going through the flow, then that will make it terribly difficult for them to get this game.

Start strong and finish strong Nets!!! :clap:

I say it because these are 2 off the hottest teams in the league right now,this is a great matchup and deserve to be on National tv.

But we all know the story of the NETS and National TV,no love from the league.Oh well.......... :curse:

Leborn James need some whopping from either Vince,Rj,Kidd,or Nenad....
either one of them could end up exploding and just start scoring more than 40 points....
the King is gonna get dethrowned by VC

The Nets defense has slipped in the last few games. Hopefully, they'll tighten it up tomorrow.

Hope the Nets keep the streak alive & you could get your money's worth.
