    Reportedly LeBron ain't traveling with the Lakers on their road trip which means he's not playing this Saturday. So I wouldn't be surprised to see the team hold EG out tonight vs the Nets and when LA comes to town. That'll buy him more rest until next Monday.

    As for the starting lineup, I imagine Ennis replaces House. Clark would get Ennis' bench minutes.

    Tickets are hella cheap if anyone is trying to go to a rockets game. I got a pretty decent ticket in 412 at 9 bucks.

    The Nets allow 111 PPG. It's not easy to realistically put together 111 points with this roster without Harden scoring 40. Nene, Clark and Hartenstein average less than 10 PPG, and Ennis hasn't been over 7 since he came back. We would likely need 60 from Rivers,Green and Tucker.

    I don't care who the opponent is, any game Harden wins with this supporting cast is an absolute beast of an effort.

    Another boring home victory. MVP only scores 45 tonight (yawns).

    Let him rest. The Nets are beatable with this current roster and the Lakers will be without LeBron and Rondo. Bring EG back when the team travels to Philly on Monday.

    Are we sure Lebron is going to be out for that game. I've been reading rumors that he'll be back this weekend. And I wouldn't just dismiss this Nets team. They play a frustrating brand of D (see the Celtics game) and Dinwiddie always seems to go off against Houston.

    hes already been ruled out. he's not traveling with LA on their 2 game road trip. The earliest he'll be back possibly is the mlk game on monday vs GS.
