It would have been nice to see Devin Harris go up against Russell Westbrook Wednesday night in Newark, but that is not to be. Harris is out of at least the Thunder game and possibly longer, depending on the results of an MRI. For the Nets, the best result would be a knee sprain and limited time off. The worst would be a tear in his meniscus or ACL, which would mean significant time lost. Avery Johnson said the team is thinking about bringing Terrence Williams back from Springfield, depending on the severity of Harris' injury.
Westbrook is one of the leading candidates for the Most Improved Player, giving Oklahoma City a potent 1-2 punch with Kevin Durant. The third-year guard is averaging 30.3 points and is shooting 51.6 percent from the field over his last three games, including a 25-point, 11-assist performance in Monday's 95-89 win against New Orleans. That same night, Durant had 26 and 11. The Thunder is 12-6.
The Nets are asking fans to bring new, unwrapped toys to tonight’s game against Oklahoma City. Fans who donate a toy will receive a voucher for a future game.
