I can't say enough about this team right now, when Jason Kidd puts his playoff eyes on we are so tough to beat. What I have noticed is Jason Kidd turning it up yet another noch, and the rest of the team following the captain. Krstic has turned his game to another level too, the way he is rebounding, blocking shots and scoring is incredible for this 2nd year player that is only 22 years old. Collins has also done so much for this team, his defense has been amazing and his rebounding is also becoming a force. Carter and Jefferson are also getting it done, Carter's play in the final 2 seconds of the Pistons game proves he can play defense and Jefferson is just solid. His defense has been huge.
The bench has been phenomenal, Robinson, Murray, Vaughn, Zoran, Wright all get credit for that. They have been able to control the game while the starters were taking a break. Padgett and Nachbar showed signs in the win to the Suns in garbage minutes and might also be able to get in the rotation however, why fix something thats not broken?
At the beginning of the season they said we couldn't play defense, but do you know how we have won these nine games? Defense. Kidd held Jason Terry to 8 points, Billups to 0 points (Carter is the one that let Billups score the 7) and Steve Nash, the reigning MVP to 0 points. What more can I say but... Go Nets!
