Dave Franco, the fourth Baldwin brother, is at Nets-Hawks.
Bogdanovic lost his man on a backdoor but made up for it by hitting a 3. Shoots way better at home.
Bojan Bogdanovic off to a terrific start for the Nets.
Brook gets lost trying to handle Pero Antic on the perimeter.
Good two-man stuff from Deron Williams and Brook Lopez. 14-3 Nets.
The Hawks have thrown an oddly high number of bounce passes just out of bounds to no one in this series.
Unlike Games 1 & 2, Nets jump on the Hawks 10-2 to start. All in the starting lineup besides Lopez with a FG here.
Shorter beard Deron WIlliams buries his first 3-point attempt. Already has two boards and two assists.
Nets up 10-2. Lots of easy looks. Team shoots way better at home, particularly Bogdanovic.
Nets off to a 10-2 lead. Already have six rebounds. Couldn't have asked for a better start.
Nets running some Pistol action early, gets Joe Johnson an open 17-footer. Up 7-2.
Nets drew up first play of the game for Deron Williams and he missed a reverse lay-up, fell to the ground.
Beer and bacon classic has a larger attendance (hopefully late arriving crowd) http://t.co/e53cD48B2L
Deron Williams makes a nice move on opening possession, gets to the rim and slips and falls while missing an open layup.
About 1/3 of the lower bowl is empty. One entire section has no fans.
The best part about in-arena fireworks is the haze that fills the arena for the first 10 minutes of the game.
David Alan Grier did the pregame intros. Now, it's game time
Deron Williams got a few boos during the starting lineup.
David Alan Grier read the Nets starting lineup. http://t.co/U4xcWoTWbP
Deron Williams introduced to a mixture of cheers and boos. More cheers than boos.
As we are about to tip-off here in Brooklyn, Barclays is approximately 40-50 percent full.
The shirts on the seats are really accentuating the emptiness of Barclays Center.
Joe is doing the national anthem. THAT Joe. (Not Johnson.)
Nation shocked that arena not known for sellout crowds has underwhelming turnout before the game starts.
3:00 start: http://t.co/0iVvpXLnTf
Mikhail Prokhorov is at the arena. Near the media dining area, a band warms up. There will also be men on stilts.
The saddest band I have ever heard is practicing inside Barclays right now. Really setting the mood for today's game.
Earl Clark is active today, as is Mirza Teletovic. Cory Jefferson and Sergey Karasev are inactive.
Caught up with Mirza Teletovic briefly before the game. Said his wind is great but still getting adjusted to speed & flow on the court.
Earl Clark is active today after being inactive in Game 2. Cory Jefferson is inactive today.
Earl Clark is active. Cory Jefferson is inactive.
Cory Jefferson, Sergey Karasev inactive today for Nets. Mirza active.
Tough break for the Nets today having to go up against possible final game at Nassau Coliseum for the Isles and Harvey-CC at the Stadium.
Mr. Whammy was so ticked off, he & his wife took their case to complain to GM Billy King sitting courtside. Gonna be a long afternoon in BK.
Game hasn't started and Mr. Whammy is ticked off he can't stand close to basket during FTs. He's threatening to get thrown out if he can't.
Seen courtside: Mr. Whammy having an extended talk with three different security guards about where he is allowed to stand during FT’s.
Lionel on home court adv: "Some people wouldn't say that because we had a losing record at home & Atlanta had a winning record on the road."
Mikhail Prokhorov is in attendance for today's game, I'm told, as he said he would be when he was here a few weeks ago.
Deron out here early, yes, sinking most of his shots. http://t.co/U41maYaXo2
Deron Williams practices his baseline jumper http://t.co/0JYnMSRRNJ
The best sporting event taking place in NYC today is probably the bacon and beer classic at Citi Field.
Some find pregame chapel odd. Remember Jeff Van Gundy in 2000 questioned whether other businesses would allow a preacher into the workplace.
Pregame chapel services spread organically in the NBA since the late 70s with no guidance or oversight from the league.
Wonder if Mirza gets more than 4 minutes tonight, and if Markel Brown gets any at all.
Pretty clear that Kawhi is the successor to Duncan. Only wonder now is who's the successor to Pop.
The Spurs Machine is back operating at full capacity. The rest of the league is in trouble.
I love that Kawhi Leonard’s version of a heat check is a contested 18-footer.
This version of Kawhi Leonard is a top 10 player in the league. Unstoppable at both ends of the floor.
The Spurs are really Kawhidening this lead here in the third quarter.
“I can still root for you guys in the second round, right?” http://t.co/g9V7HNqa9N
Paul Pierce: "You know my famous saying: 'That's why they brought me here.'"
And the fact Paul Pierce was saying, "That's why they brought me here" once again is both hilarious and not at all surprising.
That's why Paul Pierce is in Washington.
Maybe Toronto’s newspapers should stop putting Paul Pierce on their covers.
So clutch. So Pierce. So appropriate.
The sun has imploded, reducing the solar system to aimless rubble. Paul Pierce & Tim Duncan combined for 37 points in Game 4 of the first-ro
NYCFC is all types of a terrible team right now.
