, all the time

dont mean to be a grammar freak but its stevenson not Stephenson

Don't mean to be an English language freak but that's a spelling error, not a grammar one :)

I keed I keed

I was worried Monday because of the lack of big men - now I'm not worried at all

Good catch, it's fixed.

while we're at it...last word of the piece is spelled Humprhies

I need a copy editor and more time to spend on posts during the work day.

Just tell your wife she needs a second job ;)

She's pulling her hair out over a deadline. I'm getting dirty looks for watching this game and taking the long bike route home from work.

Yeah, i was kind of kidding, that's the kind of suggestion one makes when one is looking for an out clause :)

doesnt sound like MarShon Brooks is playing tonight

https://twitter.com/#!/Ledger_Nets/statuses/162301492160770048

morrow is starting for brooks

A little off topic, but what happened to our Mascot search? Has anyone heard anything? My kids were excited about the change.

Brooks being out tonight sucks. I haven't seen him play yet in the pros, even though I remember him being very smooth against Villanova the couple times I saw him play live.

Yeah, I was looking forward to seeing him as well.

i dont want lou anywhere near williams on the defensive end

Hoping Jrue's minutes mirror Deron's, until it's out of hand, at least.

OK, w/ Morrow in the starting lineup, Jodie's only job all night is to stay within two feet of Morrow. Don't help, just make sure he doesn't get daylight for an open three.

What's the over/under for Lavoy Allen's minutes tonight?

I'll say 12. Hopefully he goes over.

Same starting lineup as last game: Battie, Brand, Iguodala, Meeks, Holiday.

Battie better be ready to not be in the paint often on D.

I am in Germany...anybody know how I can find this game on he web?

Horrible crowd.

Really like Eagle and Spanarkel on YES.

didn't it used to be czar and albert?

This is a jump we should win. Meeks could probably out-jump Okur.

And we're off...Battie wins the jump. Amazing.

they won the tip!!!!!!

Ugh. Turnover on the second possession. First possession they took the clock all the way down, but got a good look. Iguodala's on Stevenson, that's a waste, but both of their wings are wastes.

What the fuck Dre and EB?

Clean it up, swing the ball and get a hoop here.

o god, joey crawford is one of the refs

Really good D by Jrue on Williams there. Cut off the drive then contested the short jumper, made him pull it back out. Then pushed him way out on the floor for a post up and cut off the drive again.

Can't leave him, Jodie. Ran him off the line, but that's the only way he scores.

Bleh, hate that shot by Jrue.

user-pic

Jrue has on those knee pads?

He wears those once in a while. Maybe when he gets floor burns or something.

This is very fucking sloppy. Meeks just fell asleep, how does Morrow get wide open off a dead-ball turnover like that. Wake the fuck up.

Jrue had Iguodala on that break. Instead a bounce pass to Battie. Come on.

Shit start, could have been worse with the Deron missed layup.

I'm afraid NOH is going to regret extending Eric Gordon.

Jrue has to finish that drive. Seems as if he's making the wrong decision 9 times out of 10 this year

Battie turnaround. Not good offense, but it goes.

great start?

They should be running 4 around EB right now like they did there. Okur is a stiff.

Defense is tuned up after that timeout.

Come on Andre, no need to fadeaway w/ Morrow on you.

Doug should be having him on the low block everytime Morrow is on him like that. Give him an entry pass and go to work.

Good hands, Jrue.

EB.

Battie has been really really slow defending the P and R. Good sub to get Thad in.

Thad, first off the bench. Starters -3 in first tonight.

Thad J.

Of course that was in the shooting motion. Come on.

Joey Crawford is so demonstrative. Spare me.

There is such a mismatch at both the 4 and 5 on offense right now. Use it.

btw, when Morrow just set that screen for Williams and Meeks gave a soft double, that's so fucking stupid. No need for that at all and he left Morrow wide open for a three.

Thad, if Humprhies is guarding you out there, do that every time.

Good hustle, EB. Hit the freebies.

Only touch for the 4 and 5 was a bail out touch for Thad. Come on, he can score on Humphries all day. Same with Brand and Williams now.

Lavoy in for Brand. Guess ET is 4th off the bench now?

That's pretty fluid every night. He'll get in.

He's the second guard off the bench

I hate Joey Crawford.

Bad job by Thad on that p&r. Gotta be on point against Williams w/ that defense.

Nice drive and kick by Jrue. OK.

Oh, Thad.

not on the and-1 he wasn't... it looked like Iguodala was assigned to Williams that possession.

Lou 3! Turn it on these last 2 min on Defense.

Just an observation. When players attack Iguodala off the dribble (miller, James and tonight Williams), his defence isn't as solid as when he can get guys to shoot jumpshots (Anthony, Johnson and granger).

i don't think Iguodala has ever been a great finisher around the rim, minus dunks. I wish he'd work on that as opposed to working on his outside shot, actually.

Should have pump faked on the catch imo. Still, can't blame him for that one.

9 offensive boards in the first half.

user-pic
Phil reply to Phil on Jan 25 at 20:06
+/-

and not for us.

PHI 45, NJN 43 at the half.

Question: how do you lose to a bad team?
Answer: Turnovers and give them offensive boards.

Sixers are doing both of those things tonight.

Went back and watched that play where williams got the +1, Iguodala was on him. Picked up the ball in transition. That was the only play he was on him, and it wasn't designed.

Williams finished the first half 5/13 for 11 points w/ 5 dimes and 3 turnovers. Not a whole lot to complain about there. Problem is the o-boards and the Sixers turnovers, but they cleaned the turnovers up in the second quarter.

Get 75% of available d-boards in the half, and this is at least a 15-point win.

user-pic
eddies' heady's on Jan 25 at 20:11
+/-

14 dimes on 18 made. Dre, Jrue, and Lou dishing. Don't know how Thad suddenly has 2 dimes again, but whatever. I'll give him 2 dimes everytime he even ATTEMPTS to box out, doubt he'd accumulate much though.

He really fought for one defensive board. At least he has three. Brand has zero defensive boards in 13 minutes.

I guess early leaders for POTG are Lou and Thad, though I've had big problems with parts of both of their games to this point.

OK, give me 60 points in the second half, please.

user-pic
eddies' heady's on Jan 25 at 20:21

If they'd grab some of these boards, they could get out on the break, which they've rarely done tonight.

Ugh, Okur.

Iguodala got a shooter's roll.

Don't think you can really play Battie and Brand together when the other team has a big that can hit the three.

And both of them rolled around. Very rare. Don't know where that pass was headed, Jrue.

Great job, Jrue.

Brutal pass by jrue. Nice d!

Malik Rose gives a shoutout to "a guy named John Oliver who works for ESPN, does all those player efficiency ratings and stuff like that." At least I think he said Oliver.

Jrue got smoked by Williams there. Humprhies dunk as a result.

These stats could use some pace adjustment, obviously, but that's the way we play the game. We're third in the league in attempts from 16-23, first in the league in attempts from 10-15, 26th in attempts at the rim. To get some non-pace-distorted perspective on this, the average team takes .31 attempts from 10-15 per attempts at the rim, .85 attempts from 16-23 per attempts at the rim, but the Sixers take .55 attempts from 10-15 per attempts at the rim, 1.19 attempts from 16-23 per attempts at the rim.

Free hoops, folks.

5 fouls on Brand, keep that in mind. Thad is also dinged, I think.

Dwight Howard watching at home, very impressed by Lou's hang time on that non-shot.

So - all those reports of how deron was playing badly maybe cause of the situation - we couldn't get that for one more game?:)

Agreed...in that situation, I would rather force Morrow to take the shot off of a hard double team on Williams than let Williams work solo on Meeks.

you have to extend the game Doug, no need for the tying 3 at that point, ugh

I kind of question the, give the ball to Turner in the corner play call.

Doug's end of game strategies are going to cost us more than a couple games this season. I love Doug but his decisions down the stretch are baffling sometimes.

I don't excuse this loss b/c two big guys were out, no excuse for losing to these collection of scrubs, none, just a piss poor offensive showing in the dysfunctional third quarter and most of the fourth. pitiful. shit

0-5 in close games. Collins takes Brand out for the final play of regulation even though Brand had made the big shot with 20 sec left. Collins doesn't double-team D-Will just like he didn't double-team Andre Miller. Gotta love it.

Gave up as many points in five minutes of OT as they gave up in 12 minutes of the whole 4th quarter!

That overtime lineup was horrible.

If anyone can bear to watch the post game, see if there's an injury update on Thad. I think he has to be hurt or he would've been in there more down the stretch and in OT.

They pussyfooted around with the score tied with around 40 secs left when the Nets went to that zone. Just throwing it around the perimeter til Jodie decided to jack up an ill advised shot, even though it was only about 7 left on the shot clock so maybe he knew that and just panicked. Still should have tried to attack the holes in the zone instead of playing hot potato with it.

And that play call with 26.8 left where Andre threw it in to Turner in the corner, not sure that's what they really wanted. Lou came hard from the lane to get the ball from the inbounds pass but Andre had just passed it in to Evan. Dre doesn't even then set a screen for Lou to free him at the elbow extended arc, Lou just sort of shook free from his man to go and get the ball from Turner. Hump switched off of Turner onto Lou making Lou have to double pump fadeaway the 3 attempt. Just didn't look like a play design at all, or carried out the way it was maybe drawn up. Weird posession there.

But still, Doug needed to go for the quick two there, it was too much time left, you have to make the game longer at that point, imo.

pretty solid play calling at the end there. this team has not won 1 game decided by fewer than 8 points. not a good sign. i wonder how the Wiz, Pistons, & Bulls fared under Collins in close games. i'm guessing not so hot. he is like the Obama of NBA coaches. great speech deliverer & motivator, execution not so much.

terrible play-calling as usual. Just like last year. Collins can't coach a close game plain and simple. No way we win a playoff series (all close games) with him as coach.

So there's never blow outs in the playoffs huh?

We won't play in many.

Someone introduce this kid to the internet - espn - a news paper - something - jeez

For those interested in what might be a less ugly basketbal game - lakers/clippers (lakers home team) on nba tv about to start.

This game is a nice example of why there's a 0% chance Howard will come here. Howard's going to go to a team with All-Star perimeter players whom he can trust to get baskets in late-game possessions, not to a team with a closer-by-mediocre-committee approach to closing out games. Even if he were to ever seriously consider us, the thought of Lou taking the last shots in playoff games would be enough to dissuade him. The Nets might not have many pieces now, but should they resign Williams, they have the one crucial piece they need to get Howard to jump aboard.

Great job. You looked at Deron's best game of the year and you determined that all by yourself. You're right. That's what Dwight cares about. He wants a star perimeter player! Aha, you figured it out. Masterful. Just shut the hell up you have no idea what Dwight is or is not looking for.

Lakers vs Clippers.... Who ya got?

matt barnes on blake griffin,"He flops"

im paraphrasing but you get the point

Most people in LA think that Matt Barnes just needs to shut up - on both sides of the fan base - little guys flop it's a 'good play' big guys flop people tell him to stop it (paraphrasing radio guys earlier)
