Game 68 : New Jersey Nets – Denver Nuggets review March 21, 2007

trackback

it had to happen, it just had to happen, Vince Carter just had to miss a WIDE OPEN game tying three pointer in front of a sell-out crowd in East Rutherford. But when you go 1-11 in an 8 minute span against the Nuggets and let them outscore us by 15 in the third, i don’t think the team earned the right to hit that game tying three.

The Good
– Marcus Williams? he’s really good, he’s a good ball hogger and very inconsistent
– Mikki Moore shows us why we need to resign him him in the off-season, 12 points, 9 boards, 4 blocks. He and DeShawn Stevenson could just be the most economical FA signings of the season.
– the 16-3 spurt to get us back within 1 point was the highlight stretch of the game for the Nets.
– Lawrence Frank looks like George Karl’s porter, is that a good thing?
– Vince Carter having a near triple double.
– the team shot a WHOPPING 86% from the line. how miraculous is that, and should i note that the team always shoot a high percentage when hey shoot around 20-25?
– we held a team that was 33-10 when scoring a 100 to 90 points
– no more Wesern conference opponents, good gracious

The BAD
– live by the three, die by the three, the team was shooting an awful 0.158% and anyone noticed a change in Boki Nachbar since the return of RJ? he’s not attacking the hoop anymore, and is just hell-bent on shooting jumpers which is BULLSHIT
– Jason Kidd was a total non-factor in 39 minutes, shooting 2-10, unexpected performance
– the third quarter stretch was just pain to watch, especially after building such a good lead going into Halftime, i am just amazed that no one attacked Melo giving him having foul trouble early on.
– Richard Jefferson is back but another thing that is new about him, he’s starting to jack up more and more three pointers everygame, and not like he’s hitting them at a steady clip, 1-5 is never good.
– Carmelo Anthony was just too much for us, Rodrique Benson was right all the long.
– i tought we only struggle with our defense, this game was a 180 degree turnaround, the offense was EFFKingly terrible, what was Vince Carter thinking with that walk?NO, that is not good defense by the Nuggs, it’s just typical Cousin Skippy.
– they shot 32 FTs!!
– we let a team that was 0-21 when scoring below a 100 register their first W of the season when scoring under 100.
– even if we do make the playoffs, i doubt we could go far, theres no swagger in the team, no rhytm and couldnt even buy a win against teams above 0.500.

Lines of the Game
Final Score : New Jersey Nets 90 – 94 Denver Nuggets
VC Line : 29 points, 9 assists, 7 rebounds
Jason Kidd Line : 5 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, 2-10 FGs
Jason Collins Line : 2 points, 2 rebounds, 3 PFs

“Mikki Moore shows us why we need to resign him him in the off-season, 12 points, 9 boards, 4 blocks. He and DeShawn Stevenson could just be the most economical FA signings of the season.”

So true, so true.

Mikki Moore set a moving screen that should have rendered an offenisve holding call!
