I'm heading out the door, so this will be brief.

We have this strange problem historically playing the Nets in New Jersey.  We haven't won there in five years, but I'm thinking tonight is when the streak ends.  New Jersey's never been a great offensive team, and their defense, once their forte, is struggling as well.  At least they've finally injected some youth into the starting lineup with Sean Williams and Josh Boone.  

Anyway, this is an open game thread, so if Sean Williams has a big game, second-guess our decision to pick Nick Young here.
