Nets, Clips, JKidd's 93rd Triple D, and the need to get that old winning magic back!
December 11, 2007 - The Los Angeles Clippers at the New Jersey Nets in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The first full 07'-08' game that I finally found the time to watch and sadly, it was ugly.
The Nets missed 15 straight shots in the fourth quarter before "garbage time" set in with Jason Kidd getting points number 10 and 11 in the process.
That was basically the highlight of the game. Kidd's opportunity to record his second consecutive triple-double and sixth of this young NBA season.
It looked good in the start. He had 8 assists. 7 points, 7 rebounds, and 10 assists at the end of three. And the difference in the fourth (Kidd finished with 11 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds).
These Nets are certainly a far cry from last year's squad.
Maybe they need to take a page out of the Los Angeles Clippers playbook and "dig in deep" to find something that can motivate them.
The Clips, though last in their division, could have just thrown in the towel this season after Elton Brand tore his Achilles heel and Sam "I Am" Cassell managed to get hurt again. But with the spirited play of Chris Kaman, and new comers Ruben Patterson and Dan Dickau...they give a good give it their all "night-in-and-night-out."
Wake up New Jersey!
You have a full compliment of players and none of them have any significant injury!
There is still time.
But you have to start somewhere.
Why not now?
