Hey everyone this D-Lee42fan with your Official Game Thread for tonight's game against the New Jersey Nets. I know a lot (if not all) Knicks fans are pissed right now about them losing every game, BUT the last time these two teams met and the IZOD Center, the Knicks prevailed. Yes both teams were badly undermanned but tonight Kidd returns to the Nets. We all know he has one thing on his mind "Lets torch the Knicks." Still no Stephon tonight for the struggling Knicks. Tune in tonight at 7:30ET for yet another cross-river duel with the Nets on NBATV. This time, the Garden hosts the action, and we all know when the Nets come to the Garden, they come to play. All game commentary, thoughts, and reactions goes here!

Since we all know we cant play defense, if we are going to beat the Nets, we have to control J-Kidd and all his assists. The Knicks must play an effective Half-court game, and they CANNOT let the Nets run the floor. We also have to out-rebound the Nets, give them NO second chance points. Look for D-Lee to be a rebounding machine and also look for Balkman to play the ONLY defense. I think Freddy Jones will have a good game. If were going to beat the Nets we are going to beat them with our bench.
