Nets Offense: Lawrence Frank is a smart coach. As much as he had to defend his star player, Vince Carter, he knew after Game 1 that his team had gone away from winning offensive basketball.

In Game 1, the Nets stood around and watched Carter take 33 shots while Jason Kidd, Richard Jefferson and Nenad Krstic became offensive statues.
