Wallace, Johnson OUT, MarShon, Bogans start:
Nets-Cavs Open Thread

Tonight: After a three-day rest and some practices in New Jersey, the 42-31 Brooklyn Nets end their eight-game road trip tonight against the 22-51 Cleveland Cavaliers, at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland. Cleveland’s record should speak for itself, but just to be clear: the Cavaliers are far, far out of the playoff race and are now in the “race to the bottom” mode, having lost their last nine games. The Nets are 4-3 on their circus road trip, and with a win, they’d guarantee their first winning record on the road in their NBA history.
