I’m telling you, if the Nets plays like this every game for the rest of the season, they would be very hard to beat, but then again this game is against the Pacers, one of those teams that we should really beat, so it doesn’t really say much.

Right now, the equation is Marcus Williams plays good, Nets win, and when even the best player on the opposing team says you’re good, it means you’re really good, and if Marcus keeps this up by just shooting less jumpers and focusing on passing the basketball which in the meantime allows Vince to get back more into scoring, this is the result we would probably get.

New Jersey Nets' Vince Carter shoots over Indiana Pacers' David Harrison, right, during the first quarter of an NBA basketball game Saturday night, Feb. 23, 2008, in East Rutherford, N.J.

And when Vince starts scoring, the pressure on RJ lessens and he can get into the scoring act as well, with 36 points, and when RJ and Vince are clicking, other players gets open as well, as for this instance its Josh Boone, finishing with a strong double double, the missing Kidd link we needed to replace isn’t Kidd’s scoring, it’s his passing, not his rebounding or his scoring, when he rebounds, Kidd made other bigs from not being able to rebound and carve out their spots, with him gone, we see guys like Boone grabbing a whole lot of borads together with VC and Nachbar, I think the 55-37 rebounding advantage is one of the biggest we’ve got this season.

With Marcus Williams taking over from Kidd, it’s not about replacing Kidd’s his scoring, we all know that Kidd’s shooting woes, and the amount of shots he takes, Marcus is obviously a better shooter right now, so he should seriously just focus on the passing instead of trying to score too much, where we could see in this game 13 assists equals victory, and add in the fact tha Travis Diener is on Marcus, which makes his job easier.

The bench couldn;t hit a shot even if they wanted to, but I like the Trenton Hassell, Boki Nachbar punch coming off the bench, defense and offense from, I haven’t seen much from Maurice Ager, but if the scouting reports are what it says it is, the atlhtlecism and speed is a very ineresting package. Tonight was a good win against the Pacers and it puts us at 26-31, 2 games behind the Bullets.
