Dave Franco, the fourth Baldwin brother, is at Nets-Hawks.

Rod Boone

Lionel Hollins was calling timeout, no one saw him and Bojan buries a three-pointer. Now, that's #Nets basketball.

Devin Kharpertian

Bogdanovic lost his man on a backdoor but made up for it by hitting a 3. Shoots way better at home.

Tim Bontemps

Bojan Bogdanovic off to a terrific start for the Nets.

Tim Bontemps

Brook gets lost trying to handle Pero Antic on the perimeter.

Lenn Robbins

All 5 #Nets starters have scored..Only 1 turnover.

Mike Mazzeo

The whole get off to a fast start thing has been achieved. #Nets up 16-5 and playing solid D. ATL just 2-for-10 to start.

Lenn Robbins

A @Deron Williams trademark. So often he rebounds from a bad call or bad outing with a vengeance. #Nets up 14-3. D-Will 3 pts, 3 rbd 3 asts

Stefan Bondy

Good two-man stuff from Deron Williams and Brook Lopez. 14-3 Nets.

Rod Boone

#Hawks are all discombobulated. #Nets have a little something to do with it too.

Devin Kharpertian

The Hawks have thrown an oddly high number of bounce passes just out of bounds to no one in this series.

Fred Kerber

I'm guessing EVERY train that comes near Barclays Center is delayed, judging by early crowd at #Hawks v #Nets

Fred Kerber

At #Nets v #Hawks Atlanta is 1-of-5, Nets are 4-of-8 and up 10-2. Hawks have a rebound. Nets have 6

Anthony Puccio

Unlike Games 1 & 2, Nets jump on the Hawks 10-2 to start. All in the starting lineup besides Lopez with a FG here.

Rod Boone

Here you go, @CompadreMax: http://t.co/64LcaK5JR8

Stefan Bondy

Shorter beard Deron WIlliams buries his first 3-point attempt. Already has two boards and two assists.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets up 10-2. Lots of easy looks. Team shoots way better at home, particularly Bogdanovic.

Tim Bontemps

Nets off to a 10-2 lead. Already have six rebounds. Couldn't have asked for a better start.

Rod Boone

Deron just hit a three and #Nets lead 10-2. #Hawks call a timeout.

Mike Mazzeo

Black road jerseys at home. A clean-shaven D-Will. A 7-2 lead for the #Nets early.

Tom Lorenzo

Another #wedgie. That's 2 in the Nets-Hawks series already.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets running some Pistol action early, gets Joe Johnson an open 17-footer. Up 7-2.

Stefan Bondy

Nets drew up first play of the game for Deron Williams and he missed a reverse lay-up, fell to the ground.

Mike Mazzeo

Beer and bacon classic has a larger attendance (hopefully late arriving crowd) http://t.co/e53cD48B2L

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams makes a nice move on opening possession, gets to the rim and slips and falls while missing an open layup.

Rod Boone

About 1/3 of the lower bowl is empty. One entire section has no fans.

Devin Kharpertian

The best part about in-arena fireworks is the haze that fills the arena for the first 10 minutes of the game.

Rod Boone

David Alan Grier did the pregame intros. Now, it's game time

Mike Mazzeo

D-Will receives some boos as he's introduced before Game 3 at home #Nets

Devin Kharpertian

Deron Williams got a few boos during the starting lineup.

Tom Lorenzo

David Alan Grier read the Nets starting lineup. http://t.co/U4xcWoTWbP

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams introduced to a mixture of cheers and boos. More cheers than boos.

Tim Bontemps

As we are about to tip-off here in Brooklyn, Barclays is approximately 40-50 percent full.

Stefan Bondy

The shirts on the seats are really accentuating the emptiness of Barclays Center.

Tim Bontemps

Introductions for Game 3 for the Nets are being done by @davidalangrier

Devin Kharpertian

Joe is doing the national anthem. THAT Joe. (Not Johnson.)

Tim Bontemps

Lot of lower bowl empty seats just moments before tip: instagram.com/p/16K2jbs_2C/

Devin Kharpertian

Nation shocked that arena not known for sellout crowds has underwhelming turnout before the game starts.

Anthony Puccio

Congratulations to Sergey Karasev who got married...in the air! sbnation.com/e/8261168?utm_… http://t.co/FpKHRQvb8A

Mike Mazzeo

Mikhail Prokhorov is at the arena. Near the media dining area, a band warms up. There will also be men on stilts.

Tim Bontemps

Combination of that and Mets-Yankees won't help, that's for sure. twitter.com/btrowland/stat…

Tim Bontemps

The saddest band I have ever heard is practicing inside Barclays right now. Really setting the mood for today's game.

Tim Bontemps

Earl Clark is active today, as is Mirza Teletovic. Cory Jefferson and Sergey Karasev are inactive.

Devin Kharpertian

I just tried throwing a cup in a trash can and missed. vine.co/v/eWhhnDI21zZ

Devin Kharpertian

Nets sticking with starting five from Game 2. @WeMustBeNets argued for Jarrett Jack over Deron Williams: bkga.me/1ECMCZV

Devin Kharpertian

Caught up with Mirza Teletovic briefly before the game. Said his wind is great but still getting adjusted to speed & flow on the court.

Rod Boone

Earl Clark is active today after being inactive in Game 2. Cory Jefferson is inactive today.

Mike Mazzeo

Earl Clark is active. Cory Jefferson is inactive.

Devin Kharpertian

Cory Jefferson, Sergey Karasev inactive today for Nets. Mirza active.

Tim Bontemps

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.

Rod Boone

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.

Rod Boone

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.

Devin Kharpertian

Seen courtside: Mr. Whammy having an extended talk with three different security guards about where he is allowed to stand during FT’s.

Mike Mazzeo

Game 1: #Nets trail 18-9 5:53 in. Game 2: #Nets trail 9-2 1:38 in. Game 3: #Nets cannot afford another slow start.

Mike Mazzeo

Katz, 2nd Ave still going strong. Carnegie Deli in Midtown closed due to buildings department order 7online.com/681277/ via @ABC7NY

Tim Bontemps

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."

Tim Bontemps

As Nets prepare for Game 3, it's fair to wonder if we're in the final days of the Williams-Johnson-Lopez trio in BK: nyp.st/1zXnTYI

Tim Bontemps

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.

Anthony Puccio

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.

Andrew Keh

Some find pregame chapel odd. Remember Jeff Van Gundy in 2000 questioned whether other businesses would allow a preacher into the workplace.

Andrew Keh

Pregame chapel services spread organically in the NBA since the late 70s with no guidance or oversight from the league.

Mike Mazzeo

No team has ever come back from 0-3 to win an NBA playoff series (0-110). So, with the #Nets down 0-2, Game 3 is a pretty big game.

Andrew Keh

Ominously, Anthony Davis wants to extend his range, @Scott Cacciola writes nyti.ms/1HDfJNh

Anthony Puccio

Wonder if Mirza gets more than 4 minutes tonight, and if Markel Brown gets any at all.

79% of voting fans prefer the Nets pull off some wins in this series than face a sweep that forces a rebuild. bkga.me/1Grl6yK

Paul Pierce is the GOAT of trolling. He's perfected the art form. twitter.com/paulpierce34/s…

Through Games 1 & 2, Jarrett Jack is +11; Deron Williams -18. @WeMustBeNets: thebrooklyngame.com/nets-start-jar…

Hollins hopes to rebound from 0-2 for third time plus Young apologizes after poor Game 2 #Nets espn.go.com/blog/brooklyn-…

Rod Boone

Thad Young apologized to his teammates after Game 2 struggles, expects to play better in Game 3 today: nwsdy.li/1JDftLd

Devin Kharpertian

Smart human @JustinDeFeo on what has killed the Nets' chances in the first two games: thebrooklyngame.com/brooklyn-nets-…

Anthony Puccio

Thad impacting a culture change in Brooklyn, for the better. "Team-first" mentality. twitter.com/mazzespn/statu…

Devin Kharpertian

Pretty clear that Kawhi is the successor to Duncan. Only wonder now is who's the successor to Pop.

Tim Bontemps

The Spurs Machine is back operating at full capacity. The rest of the league is in trouble.

Devin Kharpertian

I love that Kawhi Leonard’s version of a heat check is a contested 18-footer.

Tim Bontemps

This version of Kawhi Leonard is a top 10 player in the league. Unstoppable at both ends of the floor.

Devin Kharpertian

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.'"

Devin Kharpertian

asdlkfjgsdflald;kfj RT @nedough: To: @Drake http://t.co/rMFXjeZeYz

Tim Bontemps

And the fact Paul Pierce was saying, "That's why they brought me here" once again is both hilarious and not at all surprising.

Tim Bontemps

That's why Paul Pierce is in Washington.

Anthony Puccio

Soo there's a website calling out Billy King for all his mistakes. Somebody has too much free time, apparently. firebillyking.com/billy-king-s-t…

Devin Kharpertian

Maybe Toronto’s newspapers should stop putting Paul Pierce on their covers.

Anthony Puccio

So clutch. So Pierce. So appropriate.

Devin Kharpertian

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

Stefan Bondy

NYCFC is all types of a terrible team right now.
