what the fuck were ppl watching?
1. Kevin flopped that’s #1. His dinosaur ass was trying to draw a foul and pls he’s done harder fouls than that
2. Rondo was just on his PMS from his team getting their ass kicked
3. Jason Terry should STFU b/c CJ Watson is holding him not Reggie Evans or Gerald Wallace, so cut the tough guy talk
4. Rondo scratching Humphries?
5. Humphries wasn’t pushed down by Rondo, say it if you want to feel better but Kris clearly trips on the chair and feet of the fans, he’s just so f’n clumsy, add to that a referee falls into him while Pierce and Rondo are pushing back
This to me just looks like a team that was getting their asses kicked at home, and tried to win a fight b/c they couldn’t beat the new team on the block. Much about nothing.
It was Fight Night in Brooklyn on Wednesday as Rajon Rondo and Kris Humphries got into it after the Nets forward knocked down Celtics center Kevin Garnett. The fight motivated the Nets, who went on to dominate Boston in a 95-83 victory. (Jeff Wickerham/Getty Images)

Even though they’re eliminated from playoff contention, the Nets should keep winning games. It looks much better to be only two spots away from the 8th seed than 3 spots away.
They do control the Eastern Conference standings, though. They still have to face the Sixers, Knicks, and Bucks one more time, who are all fighting for the 8th seed. Who they beat may very well influence who gets in and who doesn’t.
Besides, if they get a better record, this forces the Blazers to have, at most, the 8th pick in the draft. If the Nets get the 1st-3rd pick, it’s theirs. And if the Rockets make the playoffs, the Rockets’ 1st round pick belongs to New Jersey :)
The New Jersey Nets have won 10 games on the road. Their away record is better than or equal to:
Problem is, the Nets have only won 6 games at home. Only the Charlotte Bobcats and the New Orleans Hornets have worse home records.
Deron Williams and Anthony Morrow blame the structure of the Prudential Center as to why they do not shoot as well at home. They do not like the specific backdrop of the stands in the Prudential Center.
When Madison Square Garden was under construction, the New York Liberty of the WNBA played in the Prudential Center in Newark. Their field goal percentage also took a huge dip.
Deron Williams and Anthony Morrow could be right.
