OK, good news is Vince Carter is still confident he can bounce back, and he admitted that he should have been more agressive, which is good, now he knows that he have to attack the rim and make things happen rather than just waiting for the game to come to him.

But the bad news is, Jason Kidd after a slight collision in Game 2 is a game-time decision for the Nets, which means Marcus WIlliams will have to start, and i don’t want to be even talking about that, but knowing Jason Kidd, he’s a fierce competitor, and after all he did continue playing in Game 2 and still shot the ball well, so unless it’s something major, he will start.

Other bench players will have to step-up big other than just Boki nachbar, because if VC is struggling or even RJ is struggling, guys like Mikki Moore and the bench will have to pick up the slack.

Asserting themselves early on will be important, we have to avoid another 12 point first quarter and start the game ablze, set the tone by getting to the hole and draw fouls, let the three pointers come with the game flow, don’t just bloddy hell jack up threes like it’s nobody’s business, we need this W, play defense and show good offense. GO NETS!

New Jersey Nets by 8
