Lol.

What a day, huh? I mean, who even cares about the game tonight against the Knicks? Well, other than the NetsDaily twitter account who is obsessed with the Knicks.

Anyway.

Brooklyn, minus pretty much everyone but Kevin Durant, will take on the New York Knicks at MSG on Wednesday night.

James Harden! Lol. What? This is wild.

Anyway.

Brooklyn is coming off a nice win on Tuesday night...guys, James Harden!

I think for the Knicks and Knick fans, patience is the name of the game and they need to give him as many opportunities as possible to grow into the profession. He should be OK in the long term. That said, he’ll definitely help the cause by knocking down a three pointer here and there. 18 percent from three point range is pretty nasty.

Kevin Durant is hoping to play tonight after dominating the Nuggets last night. KD put up a 34/9/13 line in about 36 minutes. He committed seven turnovers, which is admittedly high, but he’s working to get comfortable seeing defensive traps again for the first time in a while and now that he’s taking more playmaking responsibilities with the back half of 7/11 out. If the Nets can jump out to a big lead, they can keep KD’s minutes on the low side while ensuring he inflicts maximum punishment on the Knicks. The Nets really have a top 20 player of all time on the squad. Still feels funny writing that sometimes.
