OTHER PERSPECTIVES: Nets Are Scorching

FOR ENTERTAINMENT PURPOSES ONLY: Atlanta -3.5, 183.5 o/u

PREVIOUSLY...the New Jersey Nets have lost 11 of 13 games, most recently losing 98-92 in Toronto on Friday night. Their last three wins (dating back to their November 23rd overtime win against the Hawks) have come at home.

The Hawks won the second meeting between the team this season: 116-101 in Atlanta on December 7th.

Injuries to Damion James, Anthony Morrow, and Quinton Ross (plus the trade of Terrence Williams to Houston) have reduced the Nets to listing but four probable starters for tonight's game in their official game notes.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

Not to derail the pro-Drew excitement from the last recap, but I think we need to re-discuss his substitution patterns. The lineup that started the 4th quarter deserves its own thread, frankly, with a special shout-out for Josh Powell.
