Mason Plumlee was hosed (I'm in Canada) for Rookie of the Month. Michael Carter-Williams wins.
Paul Pierce also had this to say about the tanking discussion: "I don’t play on teams that go out there and try to lose games."
Pierce: "Either road we took, it was like you’re going to walk over nails or through thorn bushes. You’ve got to take one of the roads."
Paul Pierce had a rather amusing way of dismissing any talk of the Nets tanking their way into the sixth seed so they could face Toronto.
Garnett likened the Nets' momentum to a wave. "You should go surfing, and you'll understand that," he said to a reporter who has not surfed.
"When we was rolling and the momentum was great, I felt like we was playing some of the best basketball in the league," Kevin Garnett said.
Nets unanimously said idea is silly they tanked for Raptors considering everything was up in air. Last game was part of plan to rest players
I guess the Knicks should be better than an NBA team in Tulsa ... since there isn't an NBA team in Tulsa.
Feeling within Nets about regular season series vs Raptors: throw 2 losses out the window because they happened in second game of back2back
I was WNYC earlier talking Nets and Knicks. I was told I had "very good enunciation." That's all I hoped for.
My expedited passport will put in work over the next two weeks.
By losing yesterday and falling to 6th, Nets were ONE Bulls point short of playing Chi in 1st round. But they were tanking for Raptors?
Even if Nets victory last night meant they'd play Raptors instead of Bulls, most of the starters weren't playing in both back-2-backs anyway
If anything, the Nets tanked to face the Heat rather than the Pacers.
The idea that the Nets tanked to face the Raptors is flawed. They didn't know implications before Kidd decided to bench every starter.
The Nets were ranked 7th in NBA Store merchandise sales. The top 6 were: Heat, Lakers, Bulls, Thunder, Knicks, Celtics.

Adjust your calendars: The Nets game Tuesday in Toronto, which was supposed to be at 8 pm, is now at 7:30.
Big thanks to @delta in Cleveland for making sure I made my flight this morning. Just another example of why I use them all the time.
Man, they're trying to sneak these gas prices up again. Why? And don't give me that converting to summer blend stuff. NY ain't Cali.
Nets are flying home in between Games 1 and 2, rather than staying in Toronto. That will not happen if second round is in Miami.
