New Jersey goes for the 4-0 sweep tonight at the VC in the second game of a home and home.  A Wizards win would put them up 4 games on New Jersey for the 6th seed with 5 to play, which should probably wrap it up.  A New Jersey win, and the Wizards have only a 2 game lead, with games against Miami and Chicago looming.

And since there's really nothing else to add, let's pray for the unleashing of Andray Blatche.

Blatche said the knee feels about "90 percent" and is not concerned about conditioning because he stayed in shape on an exercise bike while doing other workouts.

"I'm ready to play as long as he wants me out there," Blatche said.

Jordan indicated yesterday that he was considering bringing Blatche off the bench in tandem with forward Darius Songaila tonight.

I'm not sure whether that means we'll see less of Brendan Haywood or less of Jarvis Hayes, but either way, it's a no-brainer.  Blatche needs to play, especially against a team with New Jersey's perimeter quickness.

Your lines for tonight:

Nets at Wizards: Nets by 3.
Over/Under on Thomas/Daniels assists/rebounds per 40 minutes (really, this isn't so complicated): 18.5 (12.1 + 6.4).

This is an open game thread, so any Jason Kidd wife-beating jokes go here.
