NETS GAMENIGHT: #Nets (5-14) @ #Bucks (4-15)

Updated: December 7, 2013

Brooklyn Nets (5-14)@ Milwaukee Bucks (4-15)

Harris Bradley Center 8:30


[quote_simple]NETS STARTERS
The starting lineup will once again be altered with Tyshawn Taylor playing alongside Joe Johnson in the backcourt with Alan Anderson, Kevin Garnett up front and the man in the middle Brook Lopez.

The Nets got their doors blown off once again at home Thursday night to the hated Knicks and embarrassed themselves and their fans in the process.  It was an abomination.

[box]Injury News: No new additions to the list but same old same old.

Paul Pierce is still out 2-to-3 more weeks with a broken hand.  Andrei Kirilenko (back spasms) and Jason Terry (knee) will be out again and will reevaluated Monday.  Deron
Williams (ankle) is out for this game but is scheduled to play on Tuesday.[/box]


The Bucks starting lineup will be Brandon Knight and OJ Mayo in the backcourt with Khris Middleton, Ersan Ilyasova and John Henson playing in the frontcourt.

The Bucks are coming off an overtime road win at Washington to grab their fourth win of the tseason and leave them a single game behind the Nets for that wonderful title of last in the Eastern Conference.

Milwaukee has a few new faces and some that are hurt so  Middleton who scored  a career-high 29 points in Washington and Henson may have to pick up the slack tonight.

[quote_simple][box]Game Notes:

The Nets are looking for their third straight victory over the Bucks.

Brooklyn is looking to win back-to-back road games for the first time this season.

Through 19 games this season, the Nets have lost a total of 45 games due to injury split among six players.

The Nets have used seven starting lineups thus far this season.



Win a damn game

It has gotten so bad in Brooklyn that even playing the worst team in the East tonight in Milwaukee makes Nets fans uneasy.

The debacle that took place at Barclays Center on Thursday disgraced Nets fans everywhere and the fans are ready to fire everyone.

The Nets NEED this win badly to show the rest of the NBA that they are the complete disaster and laughingstock that most see them as right now.

The size differential in tonight’s game with the bucks should benefit the Nets so Brook Lopez should be front and center from start to finish if they are going to win a damn game.
