In his latest blog for NBA.com, Richard Jefferson says that the Detroit win was important, but that the Nets didn't need it to know that they can compete with the best. Jason Kidd agrees, saying (on Quite Frankly with Stephen A. Smith) that the Nets didn't need to come out hot early in the season because they knew what they could do. In the blog, as well as in his chat with fans, RJ also notes that the Nets are doing things differently this season, and that he's needed to adjust a bit.
