Pregame Open Thread: Nets vs Washington Wizards

The Nets (6-19) look to get off their 8-game slide when the Washington Wizards (6-17) come to the Prudential Center in Newark. The Wiz may be without rookie PG phenom John Wall, who is bothered with his knee issue.

Meanwhile, in what will surely be dubbed a “very special Nets game,” the Nets Are Scorching team will be attending tonight as a united group. We’ll hopefully be able to provide you with some insights (or something) from our group experience.

Here are a few things to watch for tonight:

Can I Get a SG? Or a SF? The Nets are without Anthony Morrow (hamstring), Damion James (foot) and Terrence Williams (Little Generaled). On Tuesday night these injuries/trades led to Quinton Ross and Stephan Graham in the starting line-up. The Nets can now add newly acquired Sasha Vujacic to the mix, who I think is going to find himself in a much bigger role in NJ than in Laker-land.

More From the Rook. With trade rumors circulating, Derrick Favors had one of the better games of his young career on Tuesday with 10 points and 13 rebounds. It seems like his shift to the starting lineup could come any day now. You don’t think the Nets are showcasing him for anyone? Nah….

Don’t Let Yi Jianlian Beat You. Because that’s just embarrassing.

Enjoy the game folks, and let’s go Nets.
