John Hollinger takes a look at the Nets' 37-point loss at the IZOD Center last week and sees a harbinger of doom for the Nets. He compares the Raptors' blowout of the Nets to last season's Bulls' opening night blowout of the Heat. Nothing good can happen now, he vows. His analysis does find one team that was able to recover from such a horror: the 2002-03 Nets who lost to the Kings by 36, then went to the NBA Finals.
