According to a press release, this rookie card is expected to sell for over $80,000 at an auction next month. http://t.co/LnqMBDVo5g

No Deron Williams (rest) tomorrow " along with Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez and Markel Brown. Don't expect to see much of Joe Johnson either.

#Nets say Deron (rest), KG and Markel Brown (stomach virus), along with Brook won't travel to Boston for tomorrow's game vs. #Celtics.

Nets don't see a big difference in time-shortened game nwsdy.li/1t6FzRw #Nets

Rod Boone

Mercifully, #Nets preseason is almost over. After tonight's 99-88 win over #Sixers, there's also one game left: at #Celtics Wednesday.

Tom Lorenzo

There have been 72 free throws in this Nets-76ers preseason game. #preseason. #pre. #season.

Stefan Bondy

Cheers for Mason Plumlee's basket woke up a spectator who was knocked out cold in the third row. #NetsVsSixers

Fred Kerber

#Bucks with 110 points, shooting 62 percent v #Knicks still have 6:29 left

Fred Kerber

Now #Knicks v #Bucks is official NBA event. Atomic bazookas present shooting $1.99 T-shirts that someone will plunge from upper deck to grab

Tom Lorenzo

The "M-V-P" chant breaks out as Jerome Jordan steps to the free-throw line.

Tim Bontemps

Jerome Jordan is getting MVP chants. I think the fans took Lionel's Kareem joke a little too seriously.

Fred Kerber

#Knicks just showed movie clip with Kevin James and Salma Hayek. Kevin James is here. Salma Hayek isn't. I am depressed

Mike Mazzeo

Even Kareem Abdul Jordan misses a shot occasionally

Fred Kerber

Again in case you were wondering: "Saltalamacchia" has more letters than "Antetokounmpo"

Fred Kerber

#Knicks up one on #Bucks at 2:26 of 3d Q. Just keep telling myself, "If this were 7th game of NBA Finals, it would be a bleeping classic"

Mike Mazzeo

As SBJ reported, #Nets' Ratner to sell majority Barclays stake es.pn/1zixcH5 via @ESPNNewYork

Mike Mazzeo

Wrap on his right wrist/thumb has affected his shot, but Deron Williams continues to look quick with his dribble and confident w/ moves.

Fred Kerber

One more reason to go on living: Garden crowd at #Bucks v #Knicks attempting to do a wave.

Fred Kerber

Wow what are odds. They just showed guy on Garden screen at #Knicks game with the same last name as the #Bucks Giannis Antetokounmpo

Tim Bontemps

The ball went into the stands and the fan that caught it mercifully tried to make the game come to an end. Sadly, she didn't get her wish.

Mike Mazzeo

A ball went into the stands. A fan would've give it back. Think the guy should've just left. Maybe they wouldn't have had a replacement.

Tim Bontemps

Random sighting: @Vivek Ranadive and @cgkings are sitting courtside at Barclays tonight. NBA BOG meetings this week.

Fred Kerber

Other things that keep me up nights: Do the #Knicks use an isosceles triangle after halftime or just stay with a regular triangle?

Fred Kerber

Just wondering: have the #Sixers been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs yet?

Fred Kerber

Beg to differ with Carmelo Anthony. Sure looks like he could win scoring title in #Knicks offense -- especially if he faces #Bucks 30 times

Fred Kerber

Michael Rappaport went after Raylon Givens on #Justified last year. Some things just can't be forgiven

Lenn Robbins

Left my heart in #SanFrancisco after my vacation in the summer of 2012 but bleeding #Royals blue. #WorldSeries Run Royals Run

Mike Mazzeo

FWIW, Bojan is shooting 17.6 percent from 3-point range in the preseason (3-for-17, 1 for his last 13). Adjustment from shorter 3-point line

Lenn Robbins

Was that an 'Old School' bounce pass by D-Will or just great fundamental basketball? Either way, school is in #Nets

Lenn Robbins

The Basketball Gods are Grinning after watching D-Will and AK47 play give and go, give and go. #Nets lead #Sixers 35-29 @barclayscenter

Fred Kerber

Not saying the #NBA preseason is awful but I'm kinda missing hearing questions about Derek Jeter's farewell tour

Mike Mazzeo

12-70 #Nets vs. 2014-15 #Sixers: Who wins?

Tim Bontemps

This may seem boring to everyone else, but it was the best part of the game for everyone sitting on press row.

Tim Bontemps

Highlight of the preseason: the man who yelled, "What up, Blatche?" last year just yelled it at Jarrett Jack. Jack responds, "What's up?"

Fred Kerber

Improved #Knicks defense suffocated #Bucks into 59 percent shooting and 32 points in 1st Q.

Fred Kerber

#Knicks Fisher not worried on D w/Stoudemire at 5:"What gives us confidence...is our defensive system & fact its all 5 guys’ responsibility"

Rod Boone

Watching the #Sixers feels like they pulled 5 cats off the street and said, "Ya'll want next?" #whoaretheseguys

Stefan Bondy

SOmething is off with Mason Plumlee's free throws. The one-hand line drive has resulted in five straight misses.

Tim Bontemps

Mason Plumlee having a rough night at the FT line. Now officially 0-for-4, but actually is 0-for-5 (had one re-do because of lane violation)

Fred Kerber

Yes, #Knicks Amare Stoudemire has heard from pals about red wine baths: "Had a couple calls. Close friend of mine sending me cases of wine"

Fred Kerber

#Knicks Amare Stoudemire sez he rejuvenated feeling good, healthy: "My joy is there. My love of the game is there. I feel like I’m 19 again"

Lenn Robbins

Henry Sims w a rebound putback for the #Sixers. You could hear Lionel Hollins' stomach growl. The #Nets will improve on the glass, Or else.

KG won't travel to BOS for Wed game w/ stomach flu. How sick is he, Lionel Hollins? "I don’t want to get into his personal bathroom habits."

Andrew Keh

"You'll find, a lot of times, that I have no clue what I’m doing." — funnyman Lionel Hollins, today.

“I don’t want to get into his personal bathroom habits." — Lionel Hollins, declining to answer a question about how sick Kevin Garnett is.

#Knicks DFisher called Kidd's move to head coaching before his "uniform was dry" after retiring as player "ground breaking"

Fred Kerber

#Knicks Derek Fisher asked what was his first reaction when he heard Jason Kidd was going into coaching: "Smart"

Mike Mazzeo

KG probably not going to Boston Hollins said #Nets

Fred Kerber

Amare Stoudemire starting at center for #Knicks tonight

Tim Bontemps

Hollins says he just wants to see a different look with Kirilenko starting in place of Teletovic. Both will play.

Tim Bontemps

Hollins doesn't have a plan in mind going into the game in terms of minutes.

Tom Lorenzo

Kirilenko will start tonight over Mirza. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

AK is starting for Mirza tonight #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Andrei Kirilenko will start in place of Mirza Teletovic tonight.

Tim Bontemps

That being said, 44 minute games are never happening anyway. Players union would understandably never go for it.

Tim Bontemps

Today's game clocked in at 1:58. Would think a regular season game would take at least a few minutes longer, though.
