The Three Ghosts of Free Agency Past will gather at the Prudential Center on Halloween afternoon, all decked out in a single costume. The question is, as it is every October 31, Trick or Treat? The Nets are 2-0 for the first time since their last NBA Finals team and actually lead the Heat in the standings after two come-from-behind wins. But the Heat are just off devastating the Magic who they not only outscored by 26, but held to 30 percent shooting.

The Nets go into Sunday banged up in the backcourt. Jordan Farmar (the team's third leading scorer at 12.0 ppg) is a game time decision after hurting his ankle near the end of the Kings game. And Terrence Williams was sent for x-rays (which were negative) after feeling soreness in his shooting hand on Saturday.

So, if the Nets are going show LeBron James, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade the foolishness of turning down Mikhail Prokhorov (who'll still be in Newark), they'll need strong performances from Brook Lopez (27.0 ppg, 7.5 rpg) and Devin Harris (21.5 ppg, 9.5 apg and shooting 60% overall and 66.7% from deep) as well as contributions from others. Tickets are still available.
