O how I wish I could've been there. I would've gone to this game had there not been a blizzard and I'm very disapointed I missed this. Devin Harris put on a clinic in front of Mark Cuban dropping 41 points and dishing out 13 assists, demonstrating to his former teammates and former boss who got the better of last February's trade. My favorite part of the night though wasn't Harris' utter domination it was YES Network repeatedly showing a stunned and baffled Mark Cuban behind the Dallas bench, and the "Thank You Cuban" chant at the game's end. The Nets were an offensive juggernaut led by thier lightning quick leader who had help from VC who dropped 34 points of his own and grabbed 10 rebounds along with 6 assists, and also got some solid shooting from the bench as Jarvis Hayes went 5 for 8 from the field and scored 14. This game was never really close in the second half, as the Nets led by 20 early in the 3rd quarter, everything after that was just icing on the cake for the Nets against the former face of their franchise. This was not only a great win because of the opponent but also because of the Nets recent struggles both at home and in the 3rd quarter and tonight they proved they can play well in the 3rd and win in their own building. A very satisfying victory.
