    Game Thread Nets @ Knicks 3/10

    Nets
    (6-55, 3-27 away)


    Knicks
    (21-40, 13-20 home)


    The highly anticipated summer of 2010 is on its way, but for now the only competition between the New York Knicks and the New Jersey Nets is determining who's currently playing worse.
    Though it's the Nets hoping to avoid infamy over the NBA's final month, the Knicks have also struggled mightily heading into Saturday night's meeting at Madison Square Garden.New Jersey (6-55) and New York have set themselves up to be major players this summer, when names such as LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh could be available as free agents.The Nets will have more than $23 million in salary cap space to play with and the Knicks should have nearly $32 million, but neither team has given any potential superstar much of an on-court incentive to move to the New York metropolitan area.New Jersey needs four wins in its final 23 games to avoid matching the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers for worst record in league history, while the Knicks (21-40) haven't been faring any better recently. New York's 102-96 loss at Toronto on Friday was its 11th in 13 games and its 20th in 26.The Raptors, who were without Bosh after he was hospitalized with severe stomach pains, became the fifth team in six games to shoot better than 50 percent against the Knicks."No matter what quarter we didn't play well in, with Bosh not playing, this is a game we should have won," said David Lee, who had 23 points and 18 rebounds.New York held 16 of 21 opponents under 100 points from Dec. 6-Jan. 18, but digging in defensively has become an afterthought lately. The Knicks have allowed an NBA-worst 112.2 points per game since Feb. 5."I just didn't think we had the necessary gumption to get up on them and guard a little man-to-man and stop it," coach Mike D'Antoni said. "We couldn't do it. They scored every time."New Jersey has only allowed 98.6 points per game in that same stretch, but as has been the case all season, the offense hasn't been there to push it over the top. The Nets' 97-87 loss to Orlando on Friday marked the 30th time they've failed to score 90.After visiting the Knicks, seven of New Jersey's next eight games are against opponents that are .500 or better. Yet, point guard Devin Harris insists the season isn't over."From the outside (perspective), that's probably true," he told the NBA's official Web site. "But we want to finish strong. Obviously we have our minds set on trying to compete each and every game and trying to win every game."One of New Jersey's few wins came against the Knicks, 104-95 on Dec. 30 at the Izod Center. Yi JianlianBrook Lopez had 21 points and 14 rebounds.Chris Douglas-RobertsCourtney Lee (sprained ankle) misses a fourth straight game, and he's certainly enjoyed facing the Knicks. The second-year guard has averaged 19.8 points in five career games versus New York -- 12.4 higher than his average against the league's other 28 teams.Al Harrington has averaged 25.5 points and 11.5 rebounds in his last two games against New Jersey.

    lazy is an understatement... usually your pre-game threads are way more entertaining then the actual game... tho i guess it is tough to sit down and prepare a thread about 2 lame teams...

    Knicks needs starts the game with a PG. a team can not play without a order. we have four possible point guards sergio, douglas, house and duhon.

    Once Gallo was taken out everything fell apart. I hate Eddie Blouse so much. I was one of the few people agreeing with MSG to release this bum. ****ing Smelltic ****. Hope he rots with them next season.

    fantastic game! Nets guards ate us up! no defending the paint OR the perimeter! Face it, there IS no game plan in the No-D'antoni world.
    0-18 in 3's? Fact: if the Knicks don't shoot well, it's a lost cause;
    Lebron is well-aware of this shortcoming.

    2 out of 7 wins for the Nets against the Knicks! HA! We suck!


    ...D'ammit!

    I know we had different players last season, but how is it possible the Knicks got even WORSE?It's pretty sad when the Nets look consistently better even with all those losses.

    Agreed.

    I'm not shocked one bit though.
