The Nets start a western road trip heading next to sacremento afterl ossing 120-93 facing the lakers. The nets dont look like they will be much better tonight facing an improved sacremento team. the team will be looking to avoid a 10 game road loosing streak. the nets should get major and much needed help from devin harris. devin is one of 2 quality players on the roster the other being vince carter. the reason i have the nets loosing is simple they have to face a team with a better center and sf. john salmons is one of the best in the league right now having averaged 19.8 ppg in his last 5 games. besides the nets have no defense and check out there last 5 games stats. opponents have had 111 ppg in that span the nets 107. devin harris is good but he is a ball hog. the kings have a good team but there is a chance for the nets that is drive on the kings. brad miller is good but they have no pf to help on a double team or anything. beno udrih should help slow down devin who is a breakout star if he learns to share.
the kings have been better but the nets had their worst offensive outing last year shooting 5-24 and 34.5% from the floor. the nets have not been a defensive force all season allowing 110 ppg this season. the kings average more apg and rpg the nets. teh nets need to stop salmons who is arguably sacremento's best all around player. kevin martin is in the kings lineup giving them someone able to defend vince carter who has had an impresive with 24 ppg in his last 5 games but he struggled with only 14 poitns on tuesday. another reason i have for the kings winning is they are more athletic you would have to see them play but they can run.
overall i would say sacremento 114- the nets 110
salmons will get 22 points with vince carter getting 36
udrih get 6 assists nad harris gets 4
brad miller gets 10 rebounds and josh boone gets 12
these are my projections see ya tomorow
