Game 67 - Nets vs. Hawks - Tuesday, March 16, 7:30

New, comments

The Nets return home after a five game road trip that took them east to New York, then west all the way to Texas.  One win in five is actually better than their overall winning percentage.  Devin Harris' availability won't be known til Tuesday, but the Hawks' Joe Johnson is already out and Mike Bibby is questionable as well. Atlanta is deep and fighting hard for playoff position.  They've moved a game ahead of the reeling Celtics for the #3 seed, four and a half in back of the Magic.  With Johnson out, expect the scoring burden to move upfront to Al Horford, Marvin Williams and of course, Josh Smith.

For the Nets, it will be an opportunity for another close look at Terrence Williams.  If Harris is out, he could get a lot of minutes running the offense.  It's not something the Nets would have relished a few weeks ago, but TWill has turned it up a notch and admits he's now acting like a "grown-up".
