Lichtenstein: Nets Take The Fight To Celtics To Stake Claim As Road Warriors

Even after the brawl, there was little that the Celtics could do about it anyway, thanks to all the weapons remaining in the Nets’ arsenal. It wasn’t a fair fight.

Lichtenstein: This Weekend A Good Test To See What The Nets Have Learned

This is as good a weekend as any to see if the Nets learned anything from their initial missteps. I want to see the Nets step on the Magic’s throat and not let go until the game is safely out of reach. Study the Heat film for tips.
