Well, at least half of my Nets-Rockets Finals prediction seems to be holding up okay. Here’s the latest out of the Atlantic Division..
- Jason Kidd‘s cup incident has distracted from the fact that the Nets aren’t playing good basketball under the rookie head coach, writes Andy Vasquez of the Bergen Record. The Nets are now 4-12 and have dropped ten of their last 12 games.
- It’s been a while since the Knicks had an eight game losing streak, tweets Howard Beck of Bleacher Report. They had a starting lineup of Sergio Rodriguez, Tracy McGrady, Wilson Chandler, Danilo Gallinari, and David Lee. The Knicks also had reserves Eddie House, Al Harrington, and Bill Walker.
- Kidd benched most of his starters in the second half, including offseason acquisitions Paul Pierce and Shaun Livingston, in last night’s embarrassing loss to Houston, writes Tim Bontemps of the New York Post.
