Beating good teams on the road is tough in the NBA - especially if you have a lot of new players and injuries.ChemicalCutthroat said:every year for this road trip(thanksgiving) we get a losing record. including the years of finals appearances. we shouldnt let ourselves get so bent out of shape about it. :biggrin: :angel: :clown:

good post ghoti.
very nice and well saidreganomics813 said:This road trip always seems to set the mood for the team each year. It's a test that he Nets always embrace and lets them know really where they stand, what they need to work on, and brings the team together as a whole. The trip always seems to redefine a few players roles and helps Lawrence find he best ways to use the guys he has. I'd rather see the Nets tested early because they always fight like rabid dogs when the chips are down and they're being counted out. If it takes a couple hits in the loss column for everyone to get on the same page and form an identity then so be it. Even in blowouts there's lessons to learn. We've fought back, our character has been tested, and the team will learn and grow for it i'm sure
no, but we were playing on the road . . . In Arco Arena, and at Pheonix, two very difficult places to win. And we didn't have Vince for half the Warriors game so . . . .funkylikemonkey said:Kings, Suns, Warriors aren't really the crem de la crop in the NBA, none of them are top 10
I understand that teams are much harder to beat on the road especially if they're are as good as us, if not better, but I thought we would have won at least one of the three so far, I'm sure I'm misunderstanding you, but it almost seems as if you go into the road games with the mindset that we will loseghoti said:Those are comperable teams to the Nets, and they were at home.
