Grade the Game At Any Time!

Tonight: The 34-26 Brooklyn Nets have had a few days off after an embarrassing weekend that saw them lose back-to-back games by double digits, and come into Charlotte tonight to take on the 13-47 (read: bad) Charlotte Bobcats. The Bobcats have lost seven straight games, the last four by an average of over 26 points per game, and hold the league's worst record.

More on tonight's game, including injuries and stats, after the jump.

Out: No one is officially out for Brooklyn or Charlotte.

Projected Starters:
Charlotte Bobcats: Kemba Walker, Gerald Henderson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Bismack Biyombo, Byron Mullens (183 minutes, +/- -12.9 per 100 possessions)
Brooklyn Nets: Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Gerald Wallace, Reggie Evans, Brook Lopez (388 minutes, +/- -3.0 per 100 possessions)

Advanced Statistics:
Charlotte Bobcats: 97.6 offensive rating (29th), 109.0 defensive rating (29th), 94.38 possessions per game (14th)
Brooklyn Nets: 103.2 offensive rating (12th), 103.7 defensive rating (17th), 90.66 possessions per game (30th)

Rotation: The big news from today centers around Nets forward Kris Humphries, who has been told by P.J. Carlesimo that he is no longer included in the rotation. The ten-man "rotation" will now consist of the starting five, along with C.J. Watson, MarShon Brooks, Keith Bogans, Mirza Teletovic, and Andray Blatche. (Though, in pregame, when asked if Humphries would be involved at all in the rotation, Carlesimo merely said, "stay tuned.")

It would really suck if the Nets lost this one. That is all.

Go Nets!

    With all the time Nets have had to practice and rest, if they don’t win this game it will certainly reflect upon the coaching and GM.

    I cannot wait for PJ to be fired. I swear his incompetence literally ruins my enjoyment of every single nets game (regardless of the outcome).
