Thank God, I thought it was worse. Nets should handle the Magic tomorrow, and will probably lose against the Heat. I don't think it'll be a blowout like last time, because Nets will have some momentum going in and they have a newfound confidence, but they'll more than likely get an L.
I think being pessimistic till the end of the season is the best thing to do. Do not wanna get all high and then see a long term injury to the strategically most important scorer destroy playoff hopes. Lopez is on the path of Oden. Except with his foot and not knees. There is a reason why he doesnt jump so much.
