For Matchups, go here. The only difference is the Nets use of Jarvis Hayes rather than Trenton Hassell, and I don't think that will make a huge difference. It will only slow down Durant a bit.

Backstory: After a nice, uneventful win against the Hornets, the Thunder look to build on their winning streak against the pitiful Nets. The main story of today will be the injury of James Harden, and how well Anderson, Ollie, or Weaver can replace him. It's pretty much the perfect game for this pitfall to happen, because I think a lineup of Ibaka, Collison, Weaver, Maynor, and Ollie could beat the Nets if they played 48 straight minutes. I know, I'm being a jerk, but I've been on the bottom of the heap before, so I'm going to enjoy my run in the upper echelon while it lasts.

Just remember....IT'S ALL NEW!!!!

Prediction: Oklahoma City 101, New Jersey 88
