Boosie look 43
Nets since the new year: 20-8; Celtics record? 7-23.
Here is another: the Nets have trailed for exactly 157 seconds in their last four games.
Here is one of them: the Nets haven't trailed in over 136 minutes going back nearly three games.
Kevin Garnett will not play in Boston. He'll miss his 4th straight game. Paul Pierce, you are on your own in Boston this weekend.
Kevin Garnett (back) is not going to Boston with the Nets. He'll miss his fourth straight game.
Nets made the Gutierrez move official. He'll be in uniform tomorrow in Boston.
Jorge Gutierrez is from Chihuahua, Mexico. He will wear #13 for the Nets.
The Nets have signed Jorge Gutierrez to a 10-day deal.
Another interesting stat about the Nets this season: they're one of only three Eastern Conference teams that is over .500 against the West.
The Nets aren't going to outrebound teams with Paul Pierce starting at power forward. It's the other things they're doing that matter.
Marquis Teague hasn't impressed in his brief stints, including tonight. We'll see if Gutierrez gets much of a chance to play.
Joe Johnson is now tied with Tim Hardaway for 17th place in NBA history for career 3-pointers made (1,542).
Tony Allen does not believe in moral victories: "Like I say, there is no such thing as moral victories and we needed this win."
Blatche on what he liked most about fancy layup: "The whole thing. It’s like a chicken dinner. You’ve got chicken, got the rolls and corn …"
Andray Blatche said he knew the guy who proposed to his girlfriend court side. Said the guy told him last week he was going to do it.
Good team win
Deron Williams on finally getting over .500 for the first time this season: "It's been a long journey."
Deron Williams on Andray Blatche: "When he goes into Dray Live mode, anything can happen."
DWill says it's "frustrating" that he and starters had to go back in the game. "Up 27, there should be no reason starters should go back in"
Deron Williams on defending Conley: "We just tried to crowd him...give him high hands, contest his runners in the lane..." Conley 0-8 FGs.
Brooklyn confidence is high. Paul Pierce: "We match up with anybody in the Eastern Conference, from top to bottom."
Andray Blatche said his circus-like finger roll is "like a chicken dinner." His explanation was lost on me, but it involved a bread roll.
Joerger noted the Nets "came to play" and talked about their toughness. Notes the number of weapons the Nets have, esp. when u add Thornton.
Kidd on being over .500: "It doesn't matter. We're playing better in the month of March, but the record will take care of itself."
Kidd on Thornton: "He's been big for us coming off the bench." Again praises Thornton's defense -- not known to be his strong suit.
Kidd: "Thought the energy in the last two games was a playoff-type situation ... I thought the guys played great."
It's still remarkable this is first time this team has been over .500 all year. You could've gotten some long odds on that back in October.
The Nets are now 20-8 since the start of 2014, and have won six of their last right games going back to the start of their Western trip.
The Nets are officially over .500 for the first time this season.
Nets over .500 for first time this season. We've come a long way, baby.
Ah, OK. No deleting needed.
The problem with James Johnson barking at the Nets' bench after hitting his three to cut it to 9 is... the Nets scored the next 5.
Johnson-Odom plays for Springfield and Gutierrez, who was in camp with the Nets, plays for Canton. Both are point guards.
Not sure if this is out here, but Nets worked out Darius Johnson-Odom and Jorge Gutierrez today. Seems like one of them could be 15th man.
Indictment on the reserves that the starters had to come back in this game late in the 4th after leading by 30.
Watching Marquis Teague you can see why the Nets need another point guard.
Mike Miller is down for the Grizzlies. They could ill afford to lose him for any length of time.
Marquis Teague has become the human victory cigar for the Nets. You know it's over when he checks into the game.
Per Nets PR, Brooklyn is the 1st team in the NBA this season to record 12+ steals in 4 straight games.
To sum things up for Memphis tonight: Grizzlies have missed uncontested layups on back-to-back possessions. Nets lead 87-57.
Ashy Larry voice Nets fan is now asking Andray Blatche for "more shaking-and-baking."
Andray Blatche just went over to the girl who just got engaged and said congratulations before that free throw. It's all happening tonight.
Andray Blatche just went over to the lady who was proposed to and shook her hand. Cat is a character.
Marcus Thornton has done more in his few weeks with the Nets than the 2 1/2 months of both Reggie Evans and Jason Terry.
You could make a pretty good case Monday and tonight have been the best two performances of the season for the Nets. Very, very impressive.
Source: The NBA is considering rescinding Nick Calathes' Rookie of the Week award after that terrible defense on Blatche.
Blatche be Blatchin
Nets are cooking. Now 12-for-19 from 3-point range, and lead 77-53 after last 3-pointer from Deron Williams.
