Ian Egale on that Markel Brown 360 dunk: "Whoa! MarKELEVATION!"

Tim Bontemps

Markel Brown throws down a 360 dunk on a fast break. Lucky for him it went in, or else Lionel Hollins probably would have killed him.

Devin Kharpertian

MARKEL BROWN 360 DUNK ALERT

Tim Bontemps

Thaddeus Young just banked in a free throw.

Lenn Robbins

Brook Lopez w a block on one end; offensive rebound outback plus 1 on the other..#Nets creeping back. #Jambalaya

Devin Kharpertian

Brook Lopez with a block on one end, offensive rebound and-one on the other. So something good's happened this quarter.

Lenn Robbins

Not going easy for the #Nets in the #BigEasy.4 .turnovers, 3-of-16 shooting..down 15-6..But #pelicans are playing man down w no @Anthony Davis

Tim Bontemps

Don't think this game could get much worse than it's been so far. Nets trail 15-4 early. Now 2-for-15 from field, have four turnovers

Devin Kharpertian

Rough day for KG’s teams: the Celtics are losing to the Knicks, the Nets are down 15-4 to the Pelicans, and the Wolves are shooting 0-for-9.

Tim Bontemps

Immediately seeing Deron Williams and Jarrett Jack together. That combination has not worked at all this season.

Rod Boone

#Nets are 2 for 13 from the field. Not hard to see why they trail 14-4.

Mike Mazzeo

The Wolves are 0-for-9. KG's 0-for-2. His misses were the most exciting, though.

Tim Bontemps

Quick hook for Mason Plumlee as Omer Asik already has four rebounds against him.

Tim Bontemps

Omer Asik just committed one of the most blatant travels I've ever seen. Think he took four steps before trying to shoot.

Devin Kharpertian

Could be… Could be both. RT @ Jon Krawczynski: @Devin Kharpertian @m_scheinert3 @Tim Bontemps From Brooklyn or is it for Malik?

Ha. RT @m_scheinert3: @Devin Kharpertian peep the wristband... http://t.co/wIcAWOJNkN

Rod Boone

#Nets start off 1 for 6 from field, trail #Pelicans 8-2. Lionel calls an early timeout.

Tim Bontemps

Flip Saunders talked openly about how it would be different for KG to finish his career in Minnesota or Boston. Now he'll get to do that.

Rod Boone

I know there's lots to do here in The Big Easy, but uh ... http://t.co/V08imNX79O

Tim Bontemps

Pretty fantastic job by the Timberwolves honoring Kevin Garnett before tonight's game in Minneapolis.

Devin Kharpertian

Thanks in advance, whoever uploads the KG Minnesota intro.

Rod Boone

With no Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson or Jrue Holiday for #Pelicans tonight, this is obviously a game #Nets need to win.

Devin Kharpertian

THE LEAKS ARE SPREADING! RT @Lang Whitaker: Always fun when an NBA game turns into this... http://t.co/NmpbzJZkBh

Rod Boone

Markel's cheering section is in the house at the Smoothie King Center. Just made some noise for him during pregame intros.

Tim Bontemps

Looks like we are about to be joined by a few hundred friends to watch Nets-Pelicans here in the Big Easy.

“Stretch 4 Joe Johnson” RT @Rob Mahoney: I'm not sure we're fully appreciating the majesty of Joe Johnson, power forward.

Devin Kharpertian

Nets sticking with same starters: Deron Williams, Markel Brown, Alan Anderson, Joe Johnson, Mason Plumlee. Jarrett Jack is active.

Devin Kharpertian

I don’t get enough chances to watch #TheStarters. They’ve built something great. Loved today’s episode.

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins once again says he likes having Brook come off the bench because of the lineup balance it creates between first/second units.

Tim Bontemps

Really happy to hear Craig Sager is coming back next week. Watching TNT games hasn't been the same without him.

Rod Boone

Jack joked to me that him and Markel will have the whole section behind the #Nets bench filled up and cheering for them.

Rod Boone

Markel isn't the only one making a homecoming of sorts for #Nets tonight. Both of Jarrett's parents are from N.O. and he also played here.

Tim Bontemps

Jack then, of course, laughed and answered the question. One of the best guys in the league to deal with on a daily basis.

Tim Bontemps

Asked Jarrett Jack about lineup data this morning. Gave me a big smile and said, "Is this an analytics question, like Charles Barkley?"

Devin Kharpertian

You have my attention. RT @toddjolmstead: Secret underground G train platform? bit.ly/1Drf2ll

This entire UAB football story is insane. Anyone who has any interest in the #FreeUAB movement should follow my friend @Joseph Goodman

No Sloan for me this year with Friday-Saturday Nets games. Good luck to all the warm-climate media who went to NY for All-Star & now Boston.

If Michele Roberts thinks there's a lot of standing around in a NBA locker room she's apparently never visited a MLB clubhouse during access

Tim Bontemps

About to hop on @TheTicketMiami to talk about the NBA for a few minutes.

Stefan Bondy

Will say this: there are media members who don't ask questions and don't write stories. But they're hanging out in the dining area.

Stefan Bondy

Love to see M Roberts try to ask a question, only to be told by PR person to wait because player isn't ready. Then she has to stand there.

Stefan Bondy

If Michele Roberts wants to change this, then players could come out of the locker room to speak. But I'm guessing they won't do that.

Stefan Bondy

We're trying to be respectful by waiting to talk to a player who is getting ready in front of his locker, playing on his phone, etc. ...

Stefan Bondy

Is we're waiting for a player who may or may not show up for the scheduled availability, maybe for a second or two before he leaves. Or. ...

Stefan Bondy

Only thing incredible about what Michele Roberts is saying is her misinformation. The reason reporters are standing in the locker room. ..

Andrew Keh

"Incredible invasion of privacy" makes it sound like reporters are sneaking into NBA locker rooms

Rod Boone

Deron on Rose's injury: "Man, it’s just tough. I really feel for him. He was just getting back to kind of getting his groove."

Rod Boone

Jarrett Jack on Derrick Rose's injury: "It hurts man. Great dude. I know how hard he works, puts a lot of pressure on himself to be great."

Stefan Bondy

So the players know that the team is being sold while ownership claims there's nothing to see here.

Lenn Robbins

Thanks to everyone at @CommandersPalace for another fantastic night..Love forever to Miss Ella, a true friend and one of a kind #Nets

Tim Bontemps

In the matter of a few days the Nets have turned themselves into a more athletic team, and early returns are positive nyp.st/18jtFNk

Rod Boone

Still can't believe the Derrick Rose news. Just wild. It's like the cat is snake bit.

Mike Mazzeo

#Mavs 99 #Raptors 92. Outscored 25-15 in the fourth Q. Three Ls in a row. Lowry/DeRozan 11-for-36 FG. Warriors at home Friday.

Tim Bontemps

That was the same knee Rose had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in last year. Seems all but certain he'll be done for the season.

Tim Bontemps

Absolutely terrible news: Derrick Rose to undergo surgery for a meniscus tear in his right knee.

Devin Kharpertian

Derrick Rose has had a torn ACL in his left knee and has now torn his meniscus in his right knee twice. Awful.

Mike Mazzeo

C'mon, man! awful RT @Marc Stein Bulls just announced a meniscus tear in Derrick Rose's right knee

Devin Kharpertian

Ugh. RT @Ben Golliver Bulls announce Derrick Rose will undergo surgery after MRI revealed medial meniscus tear in right knee. No timetable.

Mike Mazzeo

Since going up 13, #Raptors are being outscored 53-33 with 11 turnovers. They're 3-for-14 from 3, Mavs 6-for-8

Mike Mazzeo

The D is suffering. The 3s are not falling. But a W is still within the #Raptors grasp. Mavs playing much better with Rondo on the bench.

Tim Bontemps

With Pacers and Pistons losses, Nets remain one game ahead of Hornets for eighth, 1.5 ahead of Pacers, Pistons, two games ahead of Celtics.

Rod Boone

Nets rookie Markel Brown impressive in his first start Monday nwsdy.li/1BplyM7 #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Early on, Amar'e Stoudemire has a tip-in basket for the #Raptors and has been neutralized by 6-6 defensive specialist Chuck Hayes.

Stefan Bondy

Also, I don't care if we're in the Big 10. Just beat Duke.

Stefan Bondy

Big win for the Terps. Haven't been this excited about UMD hoops since Lonny Baxter, Steve Blake and Juan Dixon.

Stefan Bondy

From what I've heard, NYCFC will try a different formation Wed, not Kreis' diamond. Still trying to settle on what they'll be moving forward

Rod Boone

Tomorrow will mark the first time Markel Brown has played in his native Louisiana since his high school senior year. Yep, it's been a minute

If a player isn't on an NBA roster on March 1, he can sign after and be eligible for the playoffs. Only isn't if he's waived after March 1.

Tim Bontemps

Just for a clarification on the playoff eligibility rule: players can't be on an NBA roster after March 1 & be eligible for playoff rosters.

Andrew Keh

"Every day," James said, drawing laughter from reporters. "I had it this morning. Egg and sausage McMuffin. All day." bit.ly/1w9FpXP

Tim Bontemps

Hollins also said that Bojan Bogdanovic would have started if he was healthy, but that Markel Brown would get playing time regardless.

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins said earlier that Deron Williams will remain a starter and that Jarrett Jack will have limited minutes tomorrow in his return

Tim Bontemps

So not only did the 76ers get to the salary floor by claiming Thomas Robinson, they dropped Denver under it and kept Nets from getting him.

Devin Kharpertian

#Bets #your RT @JorgeCr66777629: @Devin Kharpertian Lmao. Your mad like he would have helped the Bets win in playoffs. Haha

Devin Kharpertian

Question: If the 76ers wanted Robinson from the start, why didn’t they contact him until making a last-second waiver claim?

If the Hinkie way is about long-term building, claiming UFA-to-be Thomas Robinson makes little sense: bkga.me/1FV2pmd
