The Nets have a chance to go 4-1 on this homestand with a victory over the Grizzlies Wednesday. Both teams are coming off late game heroics, Brook Lopez for the Nets, Rudy Gay for the Grizz. Gay, who's been affected by shooting woes lately, still hit last-second fadeaway jumper to give Memphis a 100-98 win in Toronto on Monday.
Memphis remains in the hunt for a playoff spot in the West, 2 1/2 games behind the Blazers and they're looking for a season-high third consecutive road victory. That would be their longest road streak since a franchise-record seven-game run Feb. 17-March 10 of last year. Individually, Zach Randolph will be looking to extend his franchise-record streak of double-doubles to 12.
For the Nets, the big story has been Devin Harris' improved play. Over the last three, he's averaging 10 assists and only one turnover while playing excellent defense. To some, no player was more affected --or more relieved-- than Harris was by the 'Melo Drama.
