    Make of it what you will. Get more points than they do and you win every time.


    Spit Ballin' and Gut Feel

    The Nets are coming in tonight with only 11 bodies. They played Sunday afternoon and its only a 2 hour flight from NYC to Tampa St. Petes. Durant should play and Irving has been on a roll lately. No one likes to get swept in the yearly series and that is what is staring at the Nets if they cough it up tonight.

    The Raps last game before they embark on a week long west coast road trip from Hell. Khem and Dizzy will have their hands full with a serious wide body in DeAndree Jordan. Raps are going to have make 3s. Lots of them to stay with a very high octane offense in Brooklyn. Nurse will have his hands full dialing up something that will slow the 3 point barrage and keep Griffin and Jordan at bay in the paint. Its going to be tough.

    Regardless of where you line up on the one year soft #tampatank debate we can still all get behind the 2014 rallying cry of

    I don't normally like a tank. But when I do I prefer a #TampaTank.

    You know Lowry is going to go full Kloe. He did it for about 5 minutes last game.

      How about we try and not get down by 10 early tonight?
      Can OG shut down Kyrie and Durant at the same time....

        Kinda sucks the nets dont have the entire big 3. We wouldn't be able to shut them down but we are one of the few teams that actually have decent 1v1 defenders for all 3 guys. FVV on kyrie. O.G on Harden and Pascal on K.D. with O.G and Pascal able to switch that assingment.
        I actually think Boucher could be a decent guy to put on K.D as well if he could stay discipline with reaching and jumping on pump fake whichbis unfourtantly his one flaw right now, but he has the right build to contest his pull ups

              This five or six game stretch that starts now will show whether we have a shot at making the play-in or not. Let’s go!

                I'm not convinced the nets might have a case of what happened to the clips come playoffs. Have they eve played more then 2 game with the entire roster? Its not as easy as it sounds to just throw guys out there who havent faced adversity together 7 games vs well coach talented teams

                    Kloe has that look in his eyes. Van Vleet looks lost.

                      They have enough fire power to make it out of the East, but I don't think it will be easy. Teams like the Sixers could give them major troubles with Embiid playing like an MVP. Nets don't have enough defense at the C/PF position to defend Embiid, who is averaging 30 points and 11 rebounds this season.

                        I'd be more worried about when the going gets tough. 3 guys who think they are number 1s and havent had time to sort out how they play together/heirachry the could go south quick

                            There is not much to ask from Kyle/ Birch and OG so far but both Siakam and Van Vleet are playing like they have the yips

                              Are we back to the argument that Van Vleet and Siakam are tanking? Lol
