Happy thanksgiving. We have a lot to be thankful for . Have a great day .
It's hard to believe anyone is having more fun than the @Warriors right now.
Someone has to g up and tell Garnett that it's Rod, not Rob, Thorn.
Kevin Garnett referred to the Sixers' losing streak as both a bear and a monkey on their back within a five-second span post game.
Deron Williams on the Philly crowd. "Eight thousand people got pretty loud. They turned up."
Why was KG fired up in 4th? "I want to shout them girls out on the baseline that was talking sh*t. They put a little kick in my juice."
KG: "I want to shout them girls out on the baseline that was talking that shit.... I'm glad they did it. They put a little kick in my juice"
Heckling girl fans of the N.B.A., K.G. hears you.
Kevin Garnett shouted out the heckling girls near the baseline who inspired him to hit that big shot.
Garnett apologized again to "Rob Thorn."
Kevin Garnett thanks some "girls on the baseline" for "getting him going" late in the game. Wouldn't say what they said to him, though.
Full disclosure: I am far too sick to have any more thoughts, reasonable or otherwise, about this game tonight. More tomorrow as always.
Nets took their foot off the gas, as they often do, but looks like they'll survive here. In the end, they needed a win and they got one.
Kevin Garnett is really heated.
Kevin Garnett once compared his jumper to a booty call. Phone answered.
Mirza Teletovic having his worst game of the year.
Big shot by Deron Williams to make it 90-83 with 2:44 left. Not sure the Nets are out of the woods, but they've built up a cushion again.
Brook Lopez must be grateful to the Sixers for taking time all game to stretch his XXXL jersey into an XXXXL.
Philadelphia will embrace a good basketball team. The 8,000 or so here are cheering like this is Game 7 of the Finals.
Deron Williams hasn't scored since the first quarter, but has 11 points, seven rebounds and nine assists. Has never had a triple-double.
Nets-76ers has been tied at 72, 74, 76, 79, and 82. It’s now 85-82 Nets with 6:14 left.
Alan Anderson, the hero you all expected
No matter who wins the Nets lost, so to speak.
Back-to-back wide-open dunks for Nerlens Noel have given Philadelphia its first lead of the game, 74-72, with 10:21 left. Nets are a mess.
I have zero faith in the Nets to win this game. Zero.
Tie game in Philly. Nets being outplayed everywhere.
Sixers are current on a 20-5 run, and have tied the game at 72 with 11 minutes to go.
Tie game. Here we go.
This is just the Sudafed right
The Nets have done the one thing they shouldn't have: given the Sixers hope. We'll see if they can close them out. Up 72-67 after 3.
Nets up by a margin less than two possessions after 3 quarters against a team not favored to win a single game this season.
You'd be hard pressed to find a Nets pulse right now.
Nets are blowing this game in Philadelphia. Lead down to seven in the third quarter and Sixers gaining confidence.
That's 3 times this quarter Joe has gotten a friendly bounce after his shot initially hit the rim.
A little disconcerting that the Nets need Joe Jesus mode against these disciples
Teletovic is ice cold and the 76ers are playing with more energy. Dangerous stretch upcoming.
KG just got shown hugging Bojan Bogdanovic on the kiss cam. Bojan is 2 for 3 from field tonight after missing 12 shots in previous 2 games.
Kevin Garnett was just trying to cheer up Bojan Bogdanovic on the bench. Third straight rough game for him tonight.
KJ McDaniels makin’ GIFs alert.
That was Bojan Bogdanovic's first made basket since the triple-overtime loss tot the Bucks last Wednesday.
Alexey Shved's favorite food is borscht, he said.
Joe Johnson's last seven games: 13.9 ppg, 40.6 percent shooting. Tonight: 14 points, 6-for-7 shooting. And Bojan snaps an 0-for-15 skid.
KG through 1 half: 4 points, 5 rebounds, 3 assists, 3 steals, 1 block in 13 minutes
If you ever want to watch a PG-13 for language basketball game, Nets-Sixers is your spot.
The 76ers cut a 20-point deficit to 8 just before halftime. The Nets lead, 49-41.
A Mason Plumlee sighting here at end of second quarter.
Mason Plumlee checks in late in the second and immediately gets a layup.
The 76ers don't have a win, but they do have like four different types of T-shirt guns.
"Paul Pierce left you" -- heckler to Kevin Garnett.
My bad. Meant 'Bogie' got yacked on, not Mirza. After watching the replay, he pulled his hand back at last minute. Coincidence he's pulled?
A man named KJ McDaniels threw down a vicious one-handed dunk. It was quite impressive.
At least the crowd got a massive K.J. McDaniels dunk. That'll be on SportsCenter later.
Tony Wroten waves both arms in the air to pump up the few fans in the crowd after a dunk cuts the Nets lead to 39-23.
Brook Lopez has five rebounds already. Kevin Garnett dunked. It's crazy playing the 76ers.
The Nets are now up 39-19 on the Sixers early in the second quarter, and this game isn't even that close.
Mason Plumlee has yet to play in this one. So far Hollins has stuck to eight players – five starters plus Jack, Teletovic and Alan Anderson.
