In the first meeting between the Brooklyn Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks, the Nets played without Brook Lopez and performed poorly enough to get booed off their home floor in the blowout win for Milwaukee. This time around, Lopez is back but star point guard Deron Williams will miss the contest due to a wrist injury. This is the first game D-Will has missed in the 2012-13 NBA season, so it will be interesting to see how the Nets cope. The fact that C.J. Watson is the next man up for Brooklyn is probably a good sign for the Bucks.

Over at NetsDaily, recent quotes from Gerald Wallace serve as a springboard to dive into the issues that current plague the team heading into this matchup:

"We can't afford losses in the standings or personally as a team," said Wallace. "We've got to get some kind of momentum going as a team where we can start smiling again. Right now, everything just seems down.

"We're dropping our heads on every little mistake, every little mess-up. It's carrying over from the locker room even onto the court and it shows. We are not playing like we are supposed to be playing."

Here's to hoping the Bucks take advantage of another short-handed opponent.
