Nets Notes (5th December 2007)

This game was a wrap before the first whistle, and the Cavs proved what many fans dreaded: their team is "just-OK" with Lebron on the bench (they are 0-3 without King James, and have lost the last 4), losing last night's game with a final score of 100-79. Richard Jefferson lit up the scoreboard with 36 points (and is now 4th in the league in scoring), Vince Carter added 19 points and 7 dimes, and Jason Collins even scored 7 points! Jason Kidd sat out the entire 4th quarter, and the Cavs got whupped at home. Happy Birthday, Hov.

Tonight, the Nets face the Knicks in New Jersey, and it looks like it could be a repeat of last night for the Nets. There's no word on who will be the starting PG for the Knicks, but at 5-11, unless the Nets truly fall asleep at the wheel, it shouldn't matter much WHO is at point for New York. Al Iannazzone has the right idea, and the Nets should heed his words and take the bull by the horns. Keep the momentum going and press on.

Finally, while we lost the guy who helped the Nets sign Vince Carter, we might end up getting Kiki Vanderweghe, aka the former GM over in Denver who brought them Kenyon Martin (the NBA is a small world), is a possibility for the open GM spot, as is Mark Jackson, interestingly. More on this situation as it develops...
