Also, Markel Brown has only sat for four minutes so far tonight. Know the Nets have injuries, but looks like he'll be in the rotation anyway
Shooting percentage aside, Brook Lopez has had a sneakily good game.
Nets simply are a different team when Williams plays this way. But he has to do it for a lot longer than two games before it can be expected
We'll see if Deron Williams can sustain it, but he's looked like a different player the past two games. Would be a huge for Nets if he can.
Deron Williams has a double-double for the second straight game. 14 points, 10 assists.
If Markel Brown stays in the rotation, don't think it'll take long for him to become the fans' favorite player by a mile.
MARKEL BROWN HAS ALL OF YOUR ATHLETICISM
Markel Brown just swatted Gary Harris' jumper into the stands.
You can see why Markel Brown has caught Lionel Hollins' eye going back to the preseason. Has some crazy athleticism.
Deron Williams looks strangely quicker.
Also, that’s pretty much the only negative. Nets playing a really good all-around game vs. Denver.
Alan Anderson’s having all kinds of problems with Danilo Gallinari. Gallo just shooting over him unbothered.
Fun fact: Markel Brown leads game with 8 rebounds in the first half.
Nets close the half on a 9-0 run, lead Denver 54-45. Fun half blending old (Big 3 producing) & new (Jefferson, Brown's athleticism)
Cory Jefferson just blocked Joffrey Lauvergne’s dunk attempt, and Ian Eagle calls it “French Fried.” GREATEST. OF. ALL. TIME.
*Psst* Deron Williams looking good. 8 points, 7 assists, 0 turnovers.
Kenneth Faried walking back to the locker room with ice on his left hand.
You could do worse than Alan Anderson as your willing 4th or 5th option in a starting 5.
Wow. Huge block by Markel Brown. Nets lead 26-23 after one.
Aggressive Deron again tonight.
Markel Brown just blocked a three-pointer after the whistle. KG’s spirit lives on.
Nets will have their hands full with Denver's bigs tonight on the boards. Curious to see how that goes.
Kenneth Faried not starting tonight for the Nuggets.
James Johnson is an excellent finisher in transition.
Remember longball? Joe Johnson is basically Pierce’s size. This lineup has problems that last year’s doesn’t, but that’s not one of them.
Still okay with the Joe Johnson as the nominal 4. When things are bad, get weird and confuse other teams.
My expectations for tonight: Markel Brown will score 60 points on 30-30 shooting, all dunks.
Turned out to be a decent day in big sky country by Denver winter standards: http://t.co/VpM52MLVbP
Claude Lemieux package on MSG-Plus. Mr. Clutch. The best!
Shaw also said Wilson Chandler is out and he's going to switch up his starting lineup. Wouldn't reveal who is getting the nods.
Thomas Robinson’s combine measurements: 6’8.75” in shoes, 7’3.25” wingspan, 35.5” max vert, 5% body fat.
Brian Shaw is asked if Will Barton reminds him of himself as a player: "I wasn't athletic at all."
Also says there will be starting lineup changes. How many? "Stay tuned."
Brian Shaw says Wilson Chandler won't play tonight.
There’s this idea that analytics means “numbers.” But it’s really just data-driven information. Game film is a form of data.
Thing about the analytics-(anything else) debate is that analytics normally work in conjunction with that (anything else), not at odds.
Just to be clear: the Nets still have to wait and see if Robinson clears waivers before they can sign him. Seems likely, but you never know.
We'll see if that added athleticism translates to more wins, but it definitely provides this team with a different look than it had before.
With giving Markel Brown playing time, trading for Thaddeus Young and signing Thomas Robinson, Nets have gotten a whole lot more athletic.
Lot of hints dropped in Charleston that NYCFC will use its third DP slot midseason during the summer transfer window.
Nuggets have been in free-fall lately. Got destroyed last night. But they have talent in Lawson/Faried/etc. Can’t just look past them.
Dunno if starting matters to Lopez but he’s playing starter’s minutes these days. Has outplayed Plumlee over last ~15-20 games.
No less than 10 times, I've told people today, "No, I do not work at this hotel."
As others have tweeted, today marks the four-year anniversary of the Deron Williams trade. Things sure have changed since Feb. 23, 2011.
Nuggets aren’t great but they’re way better than the Lakers. Win tonight would mean much more than Friday.
The Knicks are having a "Manhattan Theme Night" later this month. I wonder what that will be like.
Thomas Robinson is 23. Younger than Cory Jefferson & Mason Plumlee.
Robinson, who hasn't lived up to his draft selection (No. 5), is still young (24 on March 18). So this is a low risk move for Brooklyn.
Robinson was picked fifth overall by the Kings in 2012, and has been traded three times since. Was waived Sunday by Denver, ironically.
Source confirms Nets to sign Thomas Robinson to a 10-day. Team initially wasn't interested but changed its mind over the weekend.
Thomas Robinson is low-risk, decent reward move. Nets coveted him in 2012 draft.
