At #Nets shoot, Mason said biggest adjustment he's had to make playing with Brook is guarding the stretch 4. Thinks he's better at it now.

Devin Kharpertian

Brook Lopez, who needed to be told what teams were in the Super Bowl, said the game was too close to predict a winner.

Stefan Bondy

Mick Foley cheated by stuffing chicken wings in a fanny pack. He was disqualified nydn.us/1zmGIGo http://t.co/iNFvCWkWLh”

Tim Bontemps

And from @Fred Kerber – Lionel Hollins used an extreme example to emphasize how the Nets need to keep fighting: nypost.com/2015/01/30/net…

Tim Bontemps

From @Fred Kerber - Deron Williams finally returned to some contact portions of practice Thursday: nypost.com/2015/01/30/reh…

Tim Bontemps

The Magic are young, healthy and have some talent. In house of horrors that is the bottom of the East playoff race, they should be better.

Tim Bontemps

If Orlando makes a coaching change, I won't be surprised at all if the Magic make a run at the eighth seed in the East. Only 5.5 games back.

Tim Bontemps

For some insight into how the coaches approach reserve votes, Doc Rivers & Lionel Hollins talked about it last week: nyp.st/1z0NrbT

Tim Bontemps

If you think Cousins isn't an All-Star this year, that's fine. If you think it's because he didn't get the Kings enough wins, that's crazy.

Tim Bontemps

Anyone thinking one player singlehandedly can determine the course of a franchise is severely discounting the value of a competent org.

Tim Bontemps

It's also fun for people to get insanely worked up about this today ... and then spend the whole game complaining in a couple weeks.

Stefan Bondy

If only they had a beat writer all-star team...

Stefan Bondy

The Nets don't have an All-Star, nor the prospect of a replacement, for the first time since 2011.

Tim Bontemps

Lillard is a terrific player, but the Western Conference is stacked. Cousins is a bigger snub than even Lillard is, anyway, in my opinion.

Tim Bontemps

For people asking about Damian Lillard, I would've put him in over Kevin Durant. But if you think Durant should make it who do you take out?

Tim Bontemps

No issues with any of the All-Star picks, particularly since Cousins and Korver will likely replace Kobe and Wade.

Devin Kharpertian

The Knicks have two people in the All-Star game: forward Carmelo Anthony, and trainer Roger Hinds.

Mike Mazzeo

Yes Damian Lillard is a snub. Only 1A and 1B in MVP race Curry and Harden are higher in WAR. Should be injury replacement anyway. All good.

Devin Kharpertian

Nothing better describes the NBA’s conference imbalance than All-Star snub reactions.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets have 3 max players. Trade talks for those 3 have centered on Kendrick Perkins, Lance Stephenson, JaValee McGee and Darren Collison.

Stefan Bondy

Congrats to @tkolker for being named to WFAN's announcing team for NYCFC games. Also works on broadcasts for Nets games.

Tom Lorenzo

In times likes these, how good is Woj at getting GMs off the phone. "Daryl...Daryl...look, I have to...quinoa is good, yes, but...Daryl..."

The NBA’s just forcing Kyle Korver to prove he can hit 3’s from outside the All-Star Game.

Devin Kharpertian

Today’s weird NBA fact: the Bulls & Celtics have never traded with each other. Bulls joined NBA 49 years ago.

He's my friend, so I am admittedly biased, but the Big Number videos by @Tom Haberstroh are always terrific. On Rondo: espn.go.com/video/clip?id=…

Fred Kerber

No Mason Plumlee at practice for #Nets -- personal reasons. Is expected tomorrow

Rod Boone

For full updates from practice, check in with @ColinASteph.

Tim Bontemps

That would appear -- again, appear -- to have Williams in line to potentially return Monday against the Clippers. But we'll see what happens

Rod Boone

#Nets say Deron went through the majority of practice including some contact, but is still out vs #Raptors tomorrow.

Fred Kerber

#Nets said Deron Williams did most of practice but is out for Friday v #Raptors

Mike Mazzeo

PR tweet: Deron Williams went through the majority of practice including some contact. He is OUT for tomorrow vs. Toronto.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets say Deron Williams returned to contact practice, officially ruled him out tomorrow vs. Raptors.

Devin Kharpertian

Jack hit one floater last night by accident. Threw it up and yelled “GET THAT MASE!” for an alley-oop. Except it went in

Devin Kharpertian

It’s nuts how good Jarrett Jack has been on floaters and how little it has meant

Yes it was Alex Raskin who noted the home game thing re #Nets. I was trying to save characters

Devin Kharpertian

Never thought anything would top Ambassador Dr. Francois De Cassagnol (brooklyn-nets.tv), but here we are… townofloveokc.publishpath.com

Fred Kerber

Someone just pointed out #Nets last HOME win was Dec. 29. Damn that cancellation against Portland.

Tim Bontemps

This website -- townofloveokc.publishpath.com -- is truly amazing. Thanks for the heads-up, @Royce Young. http://t.co/85pCeQl1MG

Tim Bontemps

For Nets practice updates today, follow @Fred Kerber. Sounded unlikely Deron Williams would practice fully today, but we'll see what happens.

Tim Bontemps

Proper name is St. Bonaventure legend J.R. Bremer. RT @Emiliano Carchia: JR Bremer signed with @konyasporbasket his agent told Sportando

Tim Bontemps

So the Heat, Nets, Hornets, Pistons and Pacers all are dealing with significant injury issues, while Celtics are trading everyone. The East!

Tim Bontemps

The "race" for the final two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference could more accurately be called a death march at this point.

Devin Kharpertian

Spoiler: you can watch Markel Brown dunks in here. bkga.me/1wEQyPw

Devin Kharpertian

Happy 23rd birthday to Markel Brown. He should probably play more minutes: thebrooklyngame.com/markel-brown-b…

Here's my Nets Rewind on Joe Johnson, Alan Anderson starting and the need for Deron Williams to return ASAP: nyp.st/1CPlGTF

The streaking Hawks met the reeling Nets in Atlanta Wednesday night. Predictable results followed: nyp.st/1DbuXmw

Stefan Bondy

Tim Pernetti already leaving job at NYCFC nydn.us/1JNXDGA

Tim Bontemps

Very happy for Jorge Gutierrez. Really good guy who has worked really hard. Glad he's getting another shot in the league.

Tim Bontemps

And to his credit, Kidd has done very well there. Good fit of roster and preferred playing style, and it's paying dividends.

Tim Bontemps

If you didn't think Jason Kidd was fully in charge in Milwaukee, the signings of Kenyon Martin & Jorge Gutierrez are all the proof you need.

Rod Boone

Mason on #Nets biggest problem: "We just have to continue to execute throughout the game and finish down the stretch" newsday.com/sports/basketb…

#Nets notes: Joe unfazed by rumors; Mirza heads home; Mason will be a busy guy All-Star weekend in NYC: newsday.com/sports/basketb…

Here's my Nets Rewind, with thoughts on Joe Johnson, Alan Anderson starting and the point guard situation: nyp.st/1CPlGTF

Devin Kharpertian

One thought from yesterday: Cory Jefferson should play more. Because if they’re gonna lose, they might as well dunk. bkga.me/1JNiQ3h

Tim Bontemps

For anyone who doubted how hurt Joe Johnson has been, they shouldn't any more after the way he played last night.

Tim Bontemps

Here's my Nets notes, led by Mirza Teletovic being expected to make a full recovery from the blood clots in his lungs nyp.st/1DaY0GJ

Tim Bontemps

When the streaking Hawks met the reeling Nets Wednesday night, it produced an entirely expected result: nyp.st/1DbuXmw

Last night the flight was ok, it's nice to be home with our kids http://t.co/5IFuArTDll

Stefan Bondy

In 2015, the Knicks have a better record than the Nets.

Stefan Bondy

The Nets still haven't won a home game in 2015. So who cares if they're on the road for the basically all of February?

Rod Boone

Streaking Hawks hand Nets 11th loss in 13 games nwsdy.li/1HgKuYx #Nets

Lenn Robbins

All @StonyBrookMBB does under Steve @CoachPikiell is win..One of the most under appreciated coaches in America. Kick down the #NCAA door!

Lenn Robbins

Hollins #nets: We got some pep in our step. Joe’s tendonitis was able to cool down a little bit,Jarrett was able to sit for a couple of days

Rod Boone

KG on #Nets losing 11 of their last 13: "Yeah, it isn’t cool. Man, we are just trying to do what we can to get better."

Andrew Keh

"They're an N.B.A. team," Russell Westbrook said of the Knicks.

Tim Bontemps

Jarrett Jack: "You have to give them credit. They're a damn good team."

Rod Boone

Nets' Joe Johnson not bothered by trade rumors nwsdy.li/15SwBP5 #Nets

Lenn Robbins

Lionel Hollins compares @KyleKorver to Ray Allen in his ability to shoot the 3 w no space #nets #hawks

Tim Bontemps

This only further reinforces the Nets' need to get Deron Williams back as soon as possible. They're much better when he plays/Morris doesn't

Devin Kharpertian

Nets 15-18 from the FT line on the game. Paul Millsap was 15-16 by himself.

Devin Kharpertian

At-the-buzzer grades of 113-102 Nets loss updated to include stats: bkga.me/15W1mn1 Some good against East’s best.

Mike Mazzeo

Agree Deron Williams isn't going to single-handedly save the season. But they're better with him on the court than w/o. That's all. #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Much better effort from the Nets tonight, but not good enough to win this one. Hawks now have won 17 straight games.

Mike Mazzeo

Next up for BK: Toronto, LAC, Toronto, streaking NYK and eight straight on the road. Deron Williams needed. Desperately. #Nets

Devin Kharpertian

The Nets are bad, kind of. Grades: bkga.me/15W1mn1

Rod Boone

Final: #Hawks 113, #Nets 102: Make that 17 straight for ATL now. Nets have dropped 3 straight and 11 of their last 13.

Lenn Robbins

#Hawks win their 17th straight and have now won as many games (38) as they did all last season. #Nets lose 113-102, fall to 18-27

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets have lost three straight and 11 of 13. 3-19 vs. .500 or better teams, 18-27 overall. #Hawks (38-8) have won 17 straight.

Mike Mazzeo

Anderson misses a 3. Millsap makes a 3. Just like that, it's pretty much over.

Lenn Robbins

Unlike the losses to the #Clippers and the #Jazz, the #Nets have competed hard for four quarters vs #Hawks. Won't be enough, Down 109-98

Devin Kharpertian

Brook Lopez again having a not-terrible game. 18 points, 7 boards, 6-11 FG in 27 minutes. Almost all his shooting in the paint.

Tim Bontemps

Jarrett Jack has taken a lot of long, contested midrange jumpers in this second half.

Rod Boone

#Nets are out of gas. This is when not having enough talented bodies comes back to haunt them. They need Deron back quickly.

Lenn Robbins

#Nets have reverted back to a one-on-one, jump shooting team..#Hawks lead 102-91 w 5:24 left. .@TheJoeJohnson7 w 24 on 9-of-16 shooting

Devin Kharpertian

Great night for current and former Hawks.

Devin Kharpertian

Darius Morris is 0-6 from the field, 0-4 from 3. The Nets desperately need Deron Williams back.

Tim Bontemps

Never mind – they take the points off the board. Nets trail 91-83 with 10:40 remaining.

Tim Bontemps

Kyle Korver gets a four-point play for Atlanta when Bojan Bogdanovic goes through a screen and gets called for foul on a Korver make.

Lenn Robbins

Despite being outscored 30-18 on 3's & 23-13 from the line, the #Nets go to the 4th within striking distance of the #Hawks down 89-81

Tim Bontemps

Pero Antic just missed a 3-pointer by more than I've ever seen someone miss one on a regular half-court set three. It was amazing.

Devin Kharpertian

Jarrett Jack has 11 assists and 1 turnover, so he’s basically the inverse of Derrick Rose, which is sadly true

Mike Mazzeo

Joe Johnson benefiting from rest and having his best game in a month. #Nets compete level has even been more than acceptable.
