Predicted bane of the Hawks existence: Teague not doing well.

Game Preview:

The bad news is the Nets will not be tanking tonight. The good news is the Nets have not tanked all season.

I am excited to see Jeff Teague get more burn, but as far as how he and the team do in the absence of Joe Johnson, I am holding it all with a grain of salt. Good or bad, Teague still is very inexperienced and these are still the Nets. That is, of course ,unless the Hawks lose. Then I will sit in a dark room and think depressing thoughts about the 2010-11 season for the next two weeks. So if we are dealing with meaningless. lets deal with good meaningless. I am already pale enough.

Go Hawks!
