THE STORY: Game Preview

The Nets earned themselves a huge victory over the Pistons behind some characteristically clutch play from Spencer Dinwiddie, or Winwiddie if you please. They needed it, and it took overtime too get it done. Solid game all around though, the Pistons have not been pushovers this season. Well done.

Now the Rockets are coming to town to kick off the weekend. James Harden, Chris Paul and Carmelo Anthony are off to an abysmal 1-5 start (but have been off since Tuesday). So, they’ll be looking for a win in the worst way. But a pesky, fast, annoying team that plays hard and has something to prove like the Nets might very well be the absolute last thing the Rockets need right now. Could be a steale-able game. Let’s get into it.
