    After going 1-15 in January and 0-10 in February, the Nets are 4-7 this month..with two of the wins vs the Knicks and one each over the Kings and the Grizzlies on the road.
    So no cake wall considering how we played last week. We ave already lost to them back in November and in the preseason.

    After going 8-4 in February, we are 5-5 this month and if we play up to our potential, should be able to win 5 of the remaining seven games for the month.

    Show no mercy...

    It is likely that there will be at least one victor in this game.

    Mmmm......cake wall.......

    Old frere Spencer Dimwiddie went for 18 and 7 last night.

    Pre-game question: Could Big Jon Leuer start for the Nets now if he were on the team? I don't even know who starts for them at PF.

    -
    I wanted Brook Lopez but looked up the wrong team. Cause he made Dre cry last time.
    Or I cried for him.

    Both Lopez brothers have Dre's number, which is weird, because they both have very different games.

    Agree with you. Dre really need to bring his 'A' game on in order for us to win this game.

    I'd love to see Dre dominate Brook today. Take him into the post, put fouls on him, hit that baby hook over and over.

    I don't care if he gets 100 open looks. I only care about how many he makes, open or covered.

    You gotta wonder what the 'Nets gameplan looks like. Do they plan to get Brook more attempts? I'd love to read their internal scouting report.

    Here is the closest we'll get. Nets' fansite pre-game report.

    Summary: Ride Dinwiddie to the victory and stop Morris (?).

    Here is from another site:

    3 Things to Watch for in Nets-Pistons

    1. Playoff Spoiler

    The Pistons are in a sticky five-team race for the 6, 7, and 8 seeds in the Eastern Conference playoff race. The Pacers, Heat, Bulls, Bucks, and Pistons are all within 2.5 games of each other in the win-loss column. As of Tuesday morning, the Pistons hold the eighth seed, owning the tiebreaker against the Heat. So the Pistons will definitely give it their all, especially in the final 12 games of the season. Brooklyn has to match up and compete with a motivated Pistons team and try to play spoiler. So the biggest winners with a Nets’ victory could be Dion Waiters and the Heat indirectly.

    The Nets must stop the rebounding dominance of the Pistons, who are first in the league in defensive rebounding rate. Andre Drummond, the talented, but offensively limited big man will lead Detroit. Brook Lopez played well against Drummond last time, so he will try to replicate his success. Spencer Dinwiddie will likely re-enter the starting lineup, and be matched up against a former Lopez trade return piece, Reggie Jackson. It will be competitive.

    Here’s a look at Drummond’s performance against the Suns
    [I removed video since we are all familiar with it... basically an alley oop fest]

    2. Hi Archie! Hey K.J.!

    With Joe Harris, Jeremy Lin and Sean Kilpatrick all likely out for Tuesday night’s contest, the Nets may use Archie Goodwin and K.J. McDaniels in extended minutes. Goodwin made his Nets debut Sunday, scoring 4 points and assisting on two Nets buckets. Coach Kenny Atkinson even suggested that Goodwin could see some time at the point guard slot, per the New York Post. McDaniels looked impressive in the first half against Dallas, scoring 8 points on 2 three-point field goals. McDaniels, who has struggled throughout his career as a shooter, may be starting to figure out his role in the NBA.

    It will be an important “prove it” game for both young wings. Goodwin’s 10-day contract will expire on Saturday, so he has to prove that he’s worth an extended look with strong play. McDaniels has a team option for next season, and he is auditioning for a roster spot during the Nets’ 2017-2018 season. They will be matched up against wings Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Stanley Johnson, and Long Island native Tobias Harris.

    3. You down with KCP? Yeah you know me

    Kentavious Caldwell-Pope will be a major name in restricted free agency this season. The 24-year old guard has had a solid season, scoring 14 points per game with solid defense. It will be interesting to see the Nets’ potential free agency target firsthand. Zach Lowe and Howard Beck mentioned that the Nets might be a team that throws a max offer sheet at Caldwell-Pope.

    Caldwell-Pope may not be a super efficient scorer – he shoots 40% – but he has a high upside as a two-way guard. The Nets have needed that presence on both ends of the court all season. KCP played well against Phoenix, scoring 23 points on an efficient 8-of-14 from the field. But prior to that, he scored less than double digits in five of his last eight games. Randy Foye and Caris LeVert will be tasked with guarding KCP.​



    Summary:
    - Attempt to limit Andre Drummond's rebounding
    - Have 3rd and 4th stringers step up and hang in there with Pistons' starters
    - Evaluate KCP for potential max contract FA bid

    Maybe the Nets coach rests Lopez tonight to save him for next years possible playoff run?

    The Nets need more than KCP to start winning games.

    But there will definitely be interest in him. Pistons need to spread rumours that they will just match to hopefully scare away suitors.

    Today's Battle for 7-8 Playoff Scoreboard watch....

    7-Bucks @ T-Blazers
    8- Pistons @ Nets
    Suns @ 9- Heat
    10 - Bulls @ Raptos

    Heat and Pistons have the best chance for a win.

    A Piston win and Bucks loss moves Pistons back to 7th.
