Harvey painting at 98. He'll be fun to watch this year.
Nets beat the best team in the NBA and got blown out by a below-average one two days later. So… I don’t know what’s gonna happen tonight.
Syracuse is far from the first or the last to do so. Just the way collegiate athletics works -- "student athletes" are just pawns.
There's nothing more disingenuous than schools throwing current students under the bus to save themselves from further punishment.
Can't say I'm crying for Syracuse getting demolished by the NCAA today.
Jets a third of the way to a nice offseason. Now just need that QB and a couple quality CBs.
Brutal news about Wes Matthews. Loved that Portland team heading into the playoffs. Also could have big impact on him in free agency.
The 1994-95 Red Wings had five Hall of Famers (Yzerman, Lidstrom, Ciccarelli, Fetisov, Coffey). Fedorov probably gets in too. Devils swept.
I would think it would be pretty difficult to get a lobster through arena security these days
Never realized that a fan threw a lobster on the ice when Bruce Driver scored in Game 3 of the 1995 Stanley Cup finals.
That was a spectacularly drawn up play by Tom Thibodeau, and it was executed just as well as it was diagrammed. Incredible.
Now that's an ATO
Russell Westbrook has me thinking about this again. http://t.co/AbVktQxsXR
I want to live in a world where Russell Westbrook and Craig Sager switch closets for a day.
Damion Lee led the CAA in Player Efficiency Rating and Win Shares. Finished a close second in the Player of the Year voting. Oh well.
I've been on a few flights that felt at moments like they might go off the runway without ever doing so. Just glad everyone is all right.
Really glad everyone on that flight out at LaGuardia is OK. Can only imagine how terrifying that was for everyone involved.
And oh yeah, he's not forking over the extra dough because he's not down with a 15% percent increase. He's out. Guessing many feel the same.
The good news: TIVO picked up the Soup Nazi episode, and you always have to take advantage when that happens.
The "Maybe Austin Rivers is good!" thing has been amusing from the jump. Clippers bench is gonna kill them in the playoffs.
Deron: "No excuse. They just beat us. Tthey came in here and they whooped us.”
Deron Williams on effort tonight: “No explanation for it, no excuse. They just beat us. They came in here and they whooped us.”
Deron: They whooped us.
Mason Plumlee: "This was a big game (in the standings) and we have to make up for it now."
Hollins credited Steve Clifford's move to go small. Said it helped keep Nets from being able to get into the lane and attack the paint.
Hollins: "This was a good beating by a good team that's playing really well."
Lionel Hollins: "They beat us in every facet of the game."
Lionel: We came out flat.
At 15 minutes and no sign of Lionel Hollins yet.
Nets get run off their home court, lose 115-91 to the Hornets. Fall into 10th place, a game out of eighth.
Too much LeBron. Raps played incredibly well without Lowry.
LeBron, you sir, are ridiculous.
Lance Stephenson just tried to hammer one home on Mason Plumlee but fired it off the back of the rim. Fell to the floor begging for a call.
Joe Johnson (1-for-6), Alan Anderson (1-for-5), Jarrett Jack (4-for-13), Brook Lopez (2-for-7) are a combined 8-for-31.
Cody Zeller just dunked on Mason and Cory Jefferson. Good night.
Lou Dude goin' off. Holy crap.
Lance Stephenson can't even make plays against the Nets' end of the bench unit right now.
Nets have the end of their bench in. Can't blame Hollins – nothing else has worked.
The undermanned Raps are hanging tough with the Cavs. Really gutsy effort regardless of outcome. JV/DeMar playing well.
No other way to say this: Nets laid a total egg tonight.
Well ... it was 12 ... now it's back to 20
Bojan Bogdanovic and Brook Lopez already in for Plumlee and Anderson.
Meanwhile, Mo Williams just shattered the entire team's ankles at once.
Welp, that didn't go so well. Hornets open the second half like they did the first, going on 10-2 run to push lead back to 20.
If the Nets are going to win this game, they're simply going to have to start rebounding better.
Joe Johnson is getting to play the three right now. He must be so ecstatic lol
Smart move by Lionel Hollins – we'll see if it pays off.
Nope, scratch that: Plumlee remains starting, but here comes Thaddeus Young for Markel Brown.
Looks like Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez are starting the second half for the Nets.
If anyone thinks Mirza Teletovic isn't an incredibly intelligent guy ... filmed a halftime notice for the Nets in fluent Spanish.
Charlotte, predictably, is 7-for-28 since starting out 13-for-15. We'll see if Nets can make the rest of the climb back in the second half.
Brown's biggest asset is being able to lock up perimeter scorers; unless you want to put him on Mo Williams, doesn't have a clear purpose.
Mason Plumlee and Al Jefferson now taking turns letting the other score.
Referees calling a lot of touch fouls here tonight. Both teams in the penalty halfway through the second.
Dumb foul by Mason Plumlee there. Needless hack on Al Jefferson with the Hornets in the penalty. Jefferson helps by missing 1-of-2.
Very good minutes from Bojan Bogdanovic here as part of this run to help get the Nets kind of back into this game.
And then Thaddeus Young bangs home a 3-pointer to make it a 10-0 run for the Nets and pull them to within 44-31.
Quick 7-0 run for the Nets manages to pull them back ... to within 16.
The Nets are getting killed on the boards. it's keeping them from having any shot at getting back in this game as Charlotte cools off.
Nets opening up with Jack, Brown, Bogdanovic, Young and Lopez.
