I've been telling people for a couple weeks my MVP ballot is LeBron and Durant in some order at 1 & 2 & Joakim Noah 3rd. Showing why today.
Tom Thibodeau doing this with D.J. Augustin should guarantee him Coach of the Year.
Knicks, at 16 games under .500, are four games out of a playoff spot. Amazing. More amazing? Might be favorites for the 8 seed in the East.
That's why this game is massive for the Knicks. A win moves them into a tie with Cleveland, half a game back of a Detroit.
Just finished this work! Respect the process...love the results. Now if I can just stop hackin! Smh http://t.co/3ffjVYj0VE
The others r cool but I'm roll wit the 1st one
The movie Friday which one y'all rollin wit the 1st 2nd r 3rd
I'm trying 2 go see tht new 300 tonight
It's hard to believe there are Knicks fans actually defending MSG. Guess there really are some true believers out there.
Though it will be weird to not get a hundred questions about why the Nets haven't signed Ivan Johnson yet.
Have some time on the train back to New York, so if anyone has any Nets or NBA questions, will take them on here for a bit.
Nets were pretty frustrated after this one because they let it slip. More like Golden State, when they also missed lots of 3s, than Portland
The guy played here for 15 years. Do you really think he has no more feelings for the place? Give me a break.
Anyone who is getting worked up about Paul Pierce saying he wouldn't mind someday being part of the Celtic franchise again needs to relax.
Paul Pierce said he'd consider playing for Celtics again. "Why not? Play for them, work for them ... who knows what the future can bring."
Nets lose 91-84, and finish a ridiculous 4-for-30 from 3-point range.
Very disappointing loss for the Nets. Yes, they missed a lot of wide-open shots, which happens, but you can't give away games like these.
Paul Pierce is back in the game after hurting his shoulder.
Paul Pierce has checked back into the game to start the fourth.
Huge call there as Livingston picks up his fifth foul. Williams, who is checking in for him, has four.
Nets cut deficit to 4 behind. ...you guessed it. Andray Blatche.
I felt a Chicken Dinner coming from Andray Blatche, but passed it out. Then he connects on an And-1.
The Celtics are truly atrocious. There's no reason this should be a close game.
On a night when the Nets are 2-for-20 from 3-point range, of course Andray Blatche takes and makes one. Nets now trail by eight.
Pierce appears to have an ice pack on his right shoulder. Still no word from the Nets on his injury.
Deron Williams has played well at both ends in this one, despite Rondo having a good stat line. But now goes to the bench with four fouls.
It was his right shoulder, not left. Still appears to be rubbing it.
Pierce hasn't left the bench. We'll see if he checks back in sometime soon. That's what happened Wednesday when this happened.
Paul Pierce just took himself out of the game with an apparent shoulder injury.
Paul Pierce just checked himself out holding his left collarbone/shoulder area.
Nobody can hit a shot tonight, but this has been a long trend for Mirza Teletovic and Alan Anderson.
Bad Marcus Thornton again tonight. Seems obvious now that you only play him every other game, right?
The Nets hadn't trailed since the first quarter of Saturday's win in Milwaukee. So of course they have been losing the entire half tonight.
Deron Williams now has 11,000 points after his two free throws late in the first half.
You know it's a problem when Rajon Rondo has three more 3-pointers than your entire team.
The Nets missed all 17 of their 3-point attempts in the first half. They're down by 12 at the break.
To be honest, most of those shots from 3-point range have been good looks and within the flow of the offense. Just none of them are falling.
Now 0-for-17 at halftime after Deron Williams misses at the buzzer. Nets trail 53-41 at the break.
Not sure what is more absurd: the Nets being 0-fro-16 from 3-point range or only being down by nine points.
This is absurd. 0-for-16 for the Nets from 3-point range now.
That was the latest whistle I've maybe ever seen.
Nets are now 0-for-15 from 3-point range. If it wasn't for Joe Johnson, this game would already be over.
Problem with the way the Nets have been playing: if your jumper is off, can spell trouble. Nets missing basically every jumper so far.
Quick hooks for Kirilenko and Blatche, with Plumlee and Johnson back in. Expecting the Nets to play through Joe for awhile.
If the Celtics hadn't already committed eight turnovers, this game could already be out of hand. Nets need to wake up.
Kidd calls quick timeout as Celtics stretch lead to 36-24. Boston shooting 54 percent from the field; Nets shooting 34, plus 0-for-12 from 3
For as well as he's played this season – and he's played really well – Shaun Livingston still needs to start knocking down that corner 3.
Livingston, Thornton, Kirilenko, Teletovic and Blatche in to start the second.
Alan Anderson checks in before Marcus Thornton tonight. Interesting.
