The Netsers lead by a small margin most of the way before falling in overtime to the Pacers. How'd our Nets guys do?
Well lets start with Chris Douglas-Roberts. After a slow start, CDR played his typical efficient game. Shot 50% from the floor and scored in his normal herky jerky fashion.
He also looked pretty active on defense, chasing and just overall harassing Brandon Rush into some bad shots.
Our lottery pick Terrence Williams, while not scoring much, played a very good floor game I thought. I didn't see the final numbers but he had to have somewhere around five rebounds and close to five assists.
When he rebounds on the defensive end he quickly turns up court and begins pushing much like Jason Kidd did.
In the open court is where most of his assists come and its where I think he's best. He really does have good vision.
His jump shot is going to need some work but if he can rebound and pass like that, that will be of value for us.
After that, nobody else of the free agents really stood out for me. Chris Johnson of LSU intrigues me a little bit because of his length, but he seemed a little foul prone, and certainly doesn't have an NBA body weight wise.
Dionte Christmas was a lot like I thought he'd be. A polished two guard who can run off screens. He made some drives from the wing off jab fakes and he was in the game during the overtime period, so he must have trust of the coaches.
