Charlotte Bobcats at Brooklyn Nets game preview

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

Tonight the Bobcats look to continue their impressive play and grab a win over the Nets

The Nets are - oh, how can I put this nicely - boring. They are incredibly boring.

The Nets have the slowest pace in the NBA and play a very boring brand of basketball. They spent the offseason trying to make big splashes by trading for Joe Johnson's gigantic contract and re-signing Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Gerald Wallace. Did it work out for them? Eh, not really. Or at least not yet.

The Nets are behind the Knicks in the race for the Atlantic Division, which practically guarantees them a game in the 4-5 spot. As far as match ups go for them, there's one they don't want and one they want. The one they don't want is the Hawks, against whom the Nets look utterly awful every time the two teams play one another. The one they do want is the Bulls, who look absolutely horrible as of late with no offense and their coach Tom Thibodeau attempting to kill their players by giving them massive minutes.

What I'll be looking for in the Bobcats tonight is if they continue playing as well as they have been. Though they lost to the Heat, that was more because a result of the Heat outplaying them than the Bobcats playing bad. I claimed that in the game against the Sixers, the Bobcats had an ‘Aha!' moment. I want to see if that game was an outlier or if the Bobcats really have turned a corner here at the end of the season. However, they are coming off a back-to-back, so it's entirely possible they won't play well as the Nets play their second home game after an extended road trip .
