For the second and final time this preseason, the New Jersey Nets will face off against the New York Knicks in a battle of which team is slightly more relevant at this mostly irrelevant stage.
The Nets started Deron Williams, Anthony Morrow, Damion James, Shelden Williams, and Brook Lopez in their first preseason matchup, and I wouldn’t be surprised if history repeated itself. Kris Humphries will not start, and Avery Johnson has yet to confirm what his playing time will look like tonight.
Avery also wants D-Will to drop 50 points tonight, though Deron’s just happy with at least 26 minutes. According to Colin Stephenson, Avery noted that he’ll “definitely going to have to take more shots.”
