After the exhilarating and historic win against the Pacers in their home debut, the Brooklyn Nets flew overnight to Milwaukee and arrived late around 3 am. Will they have enough in the tank to beat the Bucks on the road in a back-to-back game?
Since only Jeremy Lin played above 30 minutes last night, the 10 Nets players should have enough energy to compete hard with the Bucks who had a 3-day rest after losing their first game against the Hornets 96-107 .
The pick and roll (PnR) offense between Jeremy Lin and Brook Lopez finally found its groove and proved to be unstoppable against the Pacers while Jeremy Lin lead the charge as the floor general.
KEY OF THE GAME: A Lin PnR (with Booker or Hamilton since Brook is resting), less motion offense for the 1st and more for the 2nd unit would help. A strong rebounding game (52-49 advantage over the Pacers) would continue to be the key for the Nets to notch their first road win of the season. Better 3pt shooting (only 30% vs the Pacers) could also help to secure a win.
Snatching a road win in a back-to-back game won’t be an easy task without the energy of the home crowd and the familiarity of the arena. But if the team plays together under the direction of an experienced point guard like Lin, tonight might be the night the Nets get that road win.
Let’s hope and pray the Nets will continue their formula of success, play together as a team, and finish the game healthy!
Let’s go, JLin and the Nets! You Can Do It!
