Game 72 : New Jersey Nets – Detroit Pistons review March 31, 2007

trackback

i wasn’t going nuts when the Nets were down by three with less than 15 seconds left, instead i was FAIRLY calm, calm to an extent of not wanting to watch the fucked-up three chucked by VInce and going to the toilet. I could have said that i half heartedly expected that to happen because the team’s struggles during the fourth are known to everyone, but i couldn;t help and think of what would have been if we played AVERAGE defense.

The GOOD
– the third quarter is what the Nets should be playing like the entire season, but the thing is they are only showing it in patches the entire season
– the fact that we outrebounded a good rebounding team is pratically out of me, the 19 offensive boards are way above the season average
– Vince was hot early, but again was not assertive enough when the team needed him the most.
– Josh Boone 60 points in his last 3 games and shooting a combined 26-32 from the field, and he showed that he can dominate even when playing against one of the best teams in the East, oh and did i note that he scored 60 in 80 minutes combined?
– probably the best game Jason Collins’ has played in about a month
– RJ wasn’t settling for anymore three point bombs

The BAD
– i have no idea on whats going on deep inside Lawrence Frank, does he hate rookies? is he tempting them with minutes? Josh Boone was playing magnificient ball and what he did was he pulled JB out and put freaking Collins in during the fourth when Boone was totally on fire? totally out of me.
– who’s guarding Antonio McDyess? the Detroit frontline shot a combined 21-28 from the floor, and Tayshaun Prince’s long arms are giving RJ a hell loads of problems.
– you can’t really win when your opponent shoots 50% from trey, and they had 11 more FT makes.
– Chauncey Billups 14 FTs and 14 assists? but Jason doesn’t really have the footspeed to catch up with CB 4 anymore really
– once again it’s the fourth quarter again turning the Jersey grandplan into into rubbles, 39 points in the fourth, hey, we aren’t playing against the Suns or Warriors, it’s Detroit for god’s sake, 39 is definitely a NO-NO.
– thanks to our defense, The Pistons get to set season highs for points in a half, points in a quarter, and 3-pointers in a game with 12.

Lines of the Game
Final Score : New Jersey Nets 105 – 110 Detroit Pistons
VC line : 27 points, 7, 6, 4 threes
Jason Kidd Line : 10, 8, 9, 5 TOs
Jason Collins Line : 4 points, 6 boards, 2-5 FTs
