Jason Collins

It always sucks when an injury leads to surgery, but I know you will come back even stronger than before @DarrenYoungWWE #NoDaysOff #rehab

Tim Bontemps

Lots of delusional fans on both sides claiming their favorite team will win in four games. I'd be very surprised if series goes less than 6.

Tim Bontemps

It's finally time for the playoffs. Should be a lot of fun. What won't be fun? Nets and Raptors fans warring in my mentions for two weeks.

Fred Kerber

With #Nets going 2 Toronto 4 #Raptors what exactly happens if I say I'm visiting a farm with my dog & a basket of fruit on customs form?

Rod Boone

Fans are trash talking on my timeline and are acting like I'm a huge fan of the team I cover. Can only mean one thing: Playoff time, baby.

Rod Boone

Nets fall to the Cavaliers, will face Raptors as sixth seed bit.ly/1kAXLO6 #brooklynnets

Rod Boone

Blatche feels Nets have a "great chance in this series. We are a veteran team & playoffs is not about speed & young It's about veteran play"

Rod Boone

Blatche on Raps: "[Terrence] Ross asked for this so first of all they’ve got to back up their words. We’re going to go home, get prepared."

Mike Mazzeo

Career postseason games: Garnett 131, Pierce 136, #Raptors 156 #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets finish 44-38 -- 34-17 after 10-21 start. Lost four of their final five games -- all to sub-.500 teams.

Tim Bontemps

It's official: Nets-Raptors on Saturday.

Rod Boone

Final: #Cavs 114, #Nets 85: Toronto it is.

Mike Mazzeo

The regular season mercilessly is over. #Nets #Raptors Game 1 Saturday night.

Mike Mazzeo

Going to miss this stat: #Nets will likely finish 40-3 when leading after three, 4-34 when losing after three, 0-1 when tied.

Tom Lorenzo

It's funny to see the Celtics be like "nah" and not let the Nets "tank" their way to the 6th seed.

Rod Boone

If the results hold up as they currently are, #Nets v. #Raptors it is. Still awaiting #Wizards outcome.

Tim Bontemps

Barring something crazy, the Bobcats are going to beat the Bulls. That'll lock Toronto in the third spot, and Chicago into the fourth.

Mike Mazzeo

At the end of the third quarter, it would be nice if the #Nets were down 20 and the #Wizards up 20 for Rapid Reaction's sake.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets backups understandably appear to be running out of gas. Now trail by 11.

Mike Mazzeo

Looking like it's going to be Toronto at this rate #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Kemba Walker misses at the buzzer and the Bulls and Bobcats go to overtime. Third/Fourth seeds still up in the air.

Tim Bontemps

Raptors up 20 in the first half on the Knicks. Still early, but if that result holds Toronto will clinch third seed.

Tim Bontemps

Somehow this zombie Nets lineup is hanging with the Cavaliers. Down one with 2:44 left. Would be pretty funny if a seven-man team wins.

Mike Mazzeo

The #Nets reserves look much more interested than their starters did the last four games. Will say that.

Mike Mazzeo

#Raptors up double digits. #Nets are coming back. Reserves mustn't have gotten the avoid the #Bulls memo?

Mike Mazzeo

One down. Three to go. No one injured. #Nets

Rod Boone

End of first Q: #Cavaliers 33, #Nets 21

Rod Boone

Gotta feeling Marcus Thornton is going YOLO tonight. What does he have to lose? #Nets

Rod Boone

Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are in uniform and on the bench cheering on their teammates. Neither typically does that when not playing.

Mike Mazzeo

Final game for the expansion #Nets. Jason Collins trying to complete a three-point play.

Tom Lorenzo

Game Thread: Brooklyn #Nets at Cleveland Cavaliers, 8:00 PM sbn.to/1hN9WIj

Rod Boone

Anderson said he feels "a lot better." now, though. #Nets

Rod Boone

Alan Anderson said his abdominal muscle has been bothering him on and off lately. Aggravated it in 1st half vs. Heat, then again vs. #Magic.

Rod Boone

Collins thought about it for a second and said, "That's pretty cool." #Nets

Rod Boone

Asked Jason Collins when was his last start. Said it was with #Wizards. Said he's now started at least 1 game for each team he's played for.

Rod Boone

Asked Kidd if he's bothered some feel #Nets are tanking: "Know what's funny? I don't catch everybody what they say or write so I missed it."

Rod Boone

#Nets who are available off the bench tonight: Alan Anderson, Andrei Kirilenko and Mason Plumlee. If Anderson even plays, it won't be long.

Mike Mazzeo

If the $190 million #Nets were built for the playoffs, they shouldn't fear anyone. Will have to beat the league's best to fulfill goals.

Tom Lorenzo

Sure, the Nets aren't playing to win, but that still doesn't mean they get the Raptors in the first round.

Tom Lorenzo

I mean, the Nets don't control their own destiny tonight. Falling into 6th guarantees them no one.

Tim Bontemps

Alan Anderson is available tonight, but only on a limited basis because he's only just coming off an abdominal strain.

Rod Boone

Starters: Jorge, Teague, Thornton, Blatche and Collins. #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Kidd said Anderson will play "very little." Could see Blatche and Thornton get a LOT of shots tonight.

Rod Boone

Deron, Joe, Pierce, KG are all out tonight vs. #Cavs

Mike Mazzeo

So the #Nets are resting all of their starters per @Tim Bontemps. The buzzer can't get here soon enough.

Tim Bontemps

In other words, hard to see the Nets winning this one.

Tim Bontemps

Gutierrez, Teague, Thornton, Blatche, Collins starting. Plumlee, Kirilenko, Anderson available off the bench. That's it.

Rod Boone

#NBA announces some of the potential Game 1 info. If #Nets are at #Bulls, they'll meet at 7 pm Sunday in Chicago. #Raptors game wilts be Sat

Tom Lorenzo

So, basically (re: Nets), we still don't know anything. They'll either play 1 of the 2 days playoffs start against 1 of 2 teams we epexcted.

Tim Bontemps

Was right about Saturday/Sunday for Raptors/Bulls, but was wrong about Nets getting Sunday 1 p.m. ABC slot. That went to San Antonio instead

Rod Boone

Back to where it started for #Nets on Oct. 30. #groundhogday http://t.co/mHoEPH4Jtk

Mike Mazzeo

#NBA announces #Nets will either be in Toronto on Saturday or Chicago on Sunday for Game 1

Andrew Keh

The Toronto Raptors will host their Game 1 on Saturday, the Chicago Bulls will host theirs on Sunday, the NBA said.

Like what #NYJ did this offseason. Could use another corner, but really solid (long as QB play is up to par)

Mike Mazzeo

The Nets are living the Knicks' dream espn.go.com/blog/new-york/…

Mike Mazzeo

Rule 6.08 (c). You learn something new everyday.

Mike Mazzeo

Today's #MLB consists of them just making up the rules as they go

Mike Mazzeo

The #Yankees $155 million No. 3 starter continues to look good. Also, that blocking the plate rule is silly. Must-slide rule makes sense.

#Nets vs. Cavs injury update: Who's in, who's out? sbn.to/1hLRKi7

Tom Lorenzo

This will be only the 3rd DNP for Joe Johnson this season. Leads the team in games played.

Mike Mazzeo

Williams, Johnson, Teletovic and Livingston are out tonight. In media notes. Confirmed via PR injury report is accurate. #Nets

Marcus Thornton

Last regular season game in Cleveland tom finish strong

Rod Boone

Deron Williams, Nets gladly accept top billing in New York as lone playoff team bit.ly/1iXtXHs #brooklynnets

Tim Bontemps

There's also the fact that most would expect the Nets to win that series, leaving Toronto with absolutely no pressure but to go out and play

Tim Bontemps

... the backcourt of Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan could give the Nets fits, as could their frontline. All 4 games were competitive this year

Tim Bontemps

Yes, the Bulls are a pain in the neck for anyone to play, and Noah and Thibodeau are a tremendous combination. But ...

Tim Bontemps

I'm going to say this now, too: all of this wishing for Toronto isn't necessarily the smartest thing in the world. The Raptors are good.

Rod Boone

Paul Pierce on the playoffs drawing near: “You look forward to it now. Definitely, it’s that time of the year. You get the chills." #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Joe Johnson said he's going to Cleveland.

Stefan Bondy

Best way to describe Jason Kidd postgame: strangely defiant. Probably fact that it wasn't televised contributed.
