Clifford cites the importance of getting off to a hot start against the Nets, who are a good first quarter team.
If Nets win tonight they clinch tiebreaker over Hornets.
Re: reports that Nets could have flipped Jack to Wiz for a 1st: they'd have had to take on Webster, and "1st" was a pick swap, per sources.
Tomorrow's game should be fun. Both teams appear to be viewing it like a playoff game. Nets win, remember, clinches tie-breaker for them.
I had Jazz winning 23 games this year. Just won their 24th with 23 left. Celtics, Sixers, Nets and Knicks straight ahead ...
With Charlotte beating the Lakers tonight, winner of tomorrow's Nets-Hornets game will be in eighth place.
Ultimi due posti, Nets in pole per il dispiacere degli Hawks http://t.co/Ki7qEpVr3W
Why? Because if the Nets win Wednesday, not only is it a win over a rival for eighth, but it clinches the season series vs CHA for the Nets.
Obviously a massive win for the Nets tonight, but Wednesday's game here against Charlotte is even more important.
