If the 76ers ran the offense these Hornets are running, they’d score 60 points a game.
Nets up 32-17 after Jarrett Jack hits a floater with a bachelor’s degree of difficulty.
Great first quarter for Brooklyn. Joe has 14 points, benefitting from all that paint space previously occupied by Lopez.
Jarrett Jack buries a nice floater after a coast-to-coast drive to end the first, and Nets lead 32-17 after one. Joe Johnson has 14 already.
Brandon Davies in the game in the first quarter tonight.
From watching Charlotte today, part of Hornets' problem is they can't play MKG & Lance together. No shooting when they're out there together
Biggest upset of the first quarter? With 1:19 remaining and playing against Big Al, Mason has zero fouls.
I’ve watched the Hornets play for all of 9 minutes but they might have the least offensive continuity I’ve ever seen.
I know they played a double OT game in Memphis last night, but wow do the Hornets look awful.
Joe gets a hockey assist out of the post leading to swing action and an open D-Will triple. Like last season's playoffs.
Joe Johnson is on pace to burn Charlotte to the ground.
Deron Williams can't make a shot. No Brook Lopez clogging the floor and ball stopping. Joe Johnson lovin' life.
Clifford may want to double Joe Johnson. Or, he could just allow Joe to score any time he wants over Gerald Henderson.
Al Jefferson just missed a two foot layup by two feet. I'm not sure what's happening here. Nets lead 15-6 early.
Joe Johnson is destroying Gerald Henderson.
Good to see this logo and color scheme again: http://t.co/3H2nCpk4mc
Joe Johnson playing the first two minutes like it’s the last two.
Joe is baking early. Murmurs from the crowd as he buries his 3rd shot. He's 3 of 3.
I will always associate the Hornets with Alonzo Mourning's flat top and Larry Johnson's gold tooth.
Matchup to watch in this game: Al Jefferson vs. Nets bigs. Without Brook, KG, Mirza, Big Al could do plenty of damage in this one.
First time back in Charlotte since the name change. Have to say it's cool seeing the team here back with its proper name and colors again.
Entire Hornets team wearing "I Can't Breathe" shirts pregame on "Military Night." There were protests in downtown Charlotte today.
Nets traveling beat crew has dwindled to four. Once had six. We're only 21 games in.
Jarrett Jack joked that he's going to use his biz degree to open a rib joint w/ Joe Johnson. Joe was like why you gotta involve me?
Cory Jefferson’s combine measurements: 6’9” in shoes, 7’0.5” wingspan, 37.5” vertical, 5.3% body fat.
Asked about Jarrett Jack graduating from college today, Hollins said something to effect of "whoopty-doo, that's why he went to college."
More numbers: not counting their loss when he got hurt, Hornets are 3-4 when MKG plays and 3-11 when he sits.
For the record, the Nets are the fourth-worst 3P% team in the NBA. Only Deron Williams & Joe Johnson hitting at above the league average.
Nets faced the worst 3P% team in the NBA last night vs. Philadelphia, face the second-worst tonight in Charlotte.
Mentioned pregame DWill once dropped 57 points on this floor. He might have to do that again starting next to Karasev, Jefferson, Plumlee.
Deron Williams has shot 26.3% (15-57) from inside the arc in the last 7 games.
Nets say Mirza Teletovic, Brook Lopez, and Kevin Garnett are all out.
No Mirza or KG tonight. Sounds like Cory Jefferson will start but Hollins said could also be Jerome Jordan.
KG and Mirza out KG rest
J.R. Smith, meanwhile, has a partial tear of his left plantar fascia. He is questionable to play tomorrow.
Iman Shumpert will not need surgery. He has a dislocated left shoulder and will be reevaluated in three weeks, the Knicks said.
Brook Lopez will miss is fourth straight game with a lower back strain. I believe it's 140th missed game since 2011-12 season.
Nets are at point where the players have to adapt to the coach, not vice versa.
At what point does PJ Carlesimo get his apology?
Words heard way too often at JFK lately: "The AirTrain isn't working. You'll have to take the bus."
Could Swaggy P get so hot that he himself could not guard him?
Congrats to Tim Duncan on his 1,274th game tonight, tying Terry Porter for 20th in NBA history.
Spurs about to go to Kobe here
Lakers about to go to Ronnie Price for the win
We can then have Schrödinger's Kobe, the Kobe who has both surpassed Jordan and not surpassed Jordan.
When Kobe’s one point behind Jordan, I hope he pulls up to shoot, the lights shut off in the arena, and he retires right there.
This may go without saying, but he does not expect to sleep.
Jarrett Jack is flying tonight on a private jet to Georgia for an 8:00 AM graduation ceremony, then to Charlotte after to play vs. Hornets.
The 76ers made just 11 two-pointers tonight, the fewest in a game in NBA history since the advent of the shot clock.
Sixers coach Brett Brown, perfectly summing up Philadelphia's night: "Going 9-for-33 in the paint is hard to do."
Deron Williams cracks on Kobe after 0-8 night: "guess I should've taken 20 more shots."
Mirza Teletovic (hip pointer) is making the trip to Charlotte, but said he isn't sure if he'll be able to play.
Sixers set a Barclays Center record for least points against the Nets (70 points). Shot 31.9 percent and scored only 25 in the second half.
