Bogut gets hit w/ a flagrant 1 foul
Andrew Bogut just pushed Mason Plumlee twice. Hard to see how that’s a basketball play.
Nets have 28 points in the paint but have yet to go to the free throw line.
Young just ran down Harrison Barnes on an open fast-break layup and bothered him into a miss. No one on the Nets would do that a month ago.
Thaddeus Young makes the hustle play the Nets brought him here to make. Four-point swing for the Nets.
Thaddeus Young hustles back to force a missed fast break layup, then scores at the other end.
Brook Lopez’s touch within six feet is sublime.

Mirza: "I really want to use this opportunity to reach out to Chris Bosh and tell him he doesn't have to worry. He’s going to get better..."
Jarrett Jack has yet to miss against the Golden State Warriors this year on 11 attempts.

I'd rather watch the Warriors bench than the game. David Lee has become a versatile bench celebration superstar. Deserves max.
One of the problems with all the switching: the Nets just left Stephen Curry wide open in the corner for 3.
Andrew Bogut killing it early. Has 10 points and 4 rebounds in 6 minutes.
LOL Golden State bench. That celebration of Bogut's dunk was better than the dunk.
Nets might need to bring in Brook Lopez early. Mason Plumlee’s D against Bogut the weak link thus far.
Defense overall has been excellent so far, though.
Markel Brown has held ground against Stephen Curry & Klay Thompson already in three minutes. Really impressive.
Andrew Bogut killing the Nets inside early.
Mason Plumlee just stole the ball from Stephen Curry and threw down a dunk on the break. This really happened.
With Draymond Green at the line, small section of Nets fans chant “CHARLES BARKLEY!"
Whoever gives out the award for Nets player of the month just gave it to Brook Lopez.
Tonight is a reminder that Mirza is one of the most eloquent, polite and decent guys I have ever been around. Truly an easy guy to root for.
Mirza said he's doing everything -- running, jumping, dunking -- except contact. Said he'll be off blood thinners in July.
Should be hip not calf*
Mirza said he can practice, lift weights, run, dunk, etc. Only thing he can't do is contact. "It's frustrating," he says.
Mirza says he loves everything about the Nets, very much wants to be back. Will be a restricted free agent this summer.
Mirza said he was relieved to find out what was the matter with him. Said he was frustrated not knowing why he wasn't feeling well for weeks
Mirza says there is an 80 percent certainty, according to doctors, that hip pointer he suffered against Cleveland was cause of it.
Mirza says he'll be ready to play in six months. Doctors 80 percent sure clot originated from hip pointer injury sustained vs Cavs.
Mirza Teletovic says that he has no genetic predisposition for blood clots. Says he should be able to play in six months.
