The battle of '2 Godzilla'

Baron Vs Kidds

2 best PG in the league and well known by the physical play....wow it's really going to be a nice game.It's hard to predict who will win the game.
Nets is not a really strong team like Phoenix or Utah but they sometime can play really good.I wish we can win the game....

W's by 2 :wink:

This one is winnable for sure. All I have to say is watch out for Sean Williams, he has been pretty good so far. One of the big three will probably blow up on us, but we have enough firepower to weather the storm.

This is a winnable game, as the last couple of games have been, and they need to execute. These are the types of games that they need to win to be able to make a run in the playoffs.

One quick thing: Josh Boone starts!? Wow......

Boone looks great every time I see him. I sorta worry about him torching us a little. Very winnable game. W's by 9.

Team defense will be key here. Can't have all three Nets stars going off or it will be real hard to win. The team has the firepower to blow them off the court and run and gun should be in full motion.

New Jersey is playing really bad right now, and they have one of the best teams in the east, so it's kind of surprising the amount of games they're losing lately. And some of them are inexcusable. How can you lose twice in a week against the Knicks?

With that said, Richard Jefferson is having an amazing season, all star caliber for sure, Kidd is still one of the top pgs in the league (I think he's still top 5... just not top 3 anymore. Those would be Nash, Baron and Paul at the moment) and Carter has had a few big games this season, although his lack of heart is damaging more than helping the Nets. Also, Sean Williams looks really good. The other night had a 11 boards, 8 blocks game and looks like he'll be a steal in the draft if he keeps playing like that.

Anyway, tough albeit winnable game. Dubs by 2.

The X-Factor here is Sean Williams. That kid is for real. Teams that passed on him baffle me. He's a 3 BPG kinda guy. Think of a more athletic, taller Kenyon Martin.

Warriors should fly all over the court off the long rest. Swarming defense will create turnovers, and the turnovers will create the running. The Nets cannot run with the Dubs. Monta will continue to score...I say 25+. Warriors by 5.

The Nets on paper are a good team. R-Jeff is having a career year. And Kidd is being Kidd. Carter is scoring and thats about it.

If we get them into our game of small ball fast paced basketball, they dont have a chance. This looks like a fun game.


Warriors by 4

P.S. Hope we have a Beyonce sighting!!!!

Damn thats a whole lotta hollywood right there.

We should be able to take this one. The nets don't have that pesky low-post player that usually is our weakness. I just hope that none of the big three go off on us.
