PLAYERS: Joe Johnson
TEAMS: Brooklyn Nets
These Nets have won 10 of their last 12, including Friday’s revenge 94-89 victory over the Hawks. These Nets are already talking playoffs and seedings, with an eye on Monday’s Garden showdown against the Knicks. “We got to go in there with the mind-set where we understand it’s going to be a hostile environment, and some way, somehow, we have to come out of there on top,” Joe Johnson said. “They beat us the last two times, and we owe them. “It’s definitely hard not to get caught up in (the rivalry against the Knicks) because everybody’s always talking about it. Honestly, every time we play them it’s been a playoff-type game on the floor, the atmosphere. That’s what I expect Monday.” via NY Daily News
