The New Jersey Nets are hosting the second best team in the East record wise and my pick to come after the Eastern Conference, the Orlando Magic. Did you really expect them to win? At least it was not as embarrassing loss as they usually are defeated by.
The team has gotten their act together defensively as there was a time when they were getting blown out by 30 to 40 and giving up 120 or so a night. Now they can hold great opposition to 95-100 and when they can get their offense on that level they can start winning more.
