Zoran Planinic, already buoyed by a solid performance in Eurobasket 2005, looked even more confident on Tuesday as he calmly played the hero and won the game against Indiana. Now, his teammates and coach are talking about how Planinic is a new player, one with a new confidence. Planinic will be on the court tonight in Charlotte as the Nets battle the Bobcats but Jason Collins, Jeff McInnis and Marc Jackson will not, as they deal with continuing injury issues.
