OK, Brook Lopez just made an offense pass. The preseason can end.

Tim Bontemps

I've wondered about same point @NateDuncanNBA just raised. Could be tough for Nets to post up Joe Johnson, in particular, while Brook's in.

Mike Mazzeo

Yes, I realize Brook Lopez does not average many assists. But I'm just talking about passes in general.

Mike Mazzeo

Brook Lopez, will you make a pass on the offensive end of the court? No. No, it does not look like you will.

Tim Bontemps

Lots of TV time for Nets PR and NBA PR during these free throws.

Mike Mazzeo

Will any of the teams the #Nets face this preseason win 30 games?

Tim Bontemps

Garnett is looking very confident taking his jump shot. There were times last year he seemed hesitant to pull the trigger.

Tim Bontemps

Should also shout out @JustinShackil on the play-by-play of this game.

Tim Bontemps

Some good minutes here from Jerome Jordan. Fighting for one of the open spots at the end of the roster.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams PNR against the #Kings defense. That should work most of the time.

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins has said he wants Mason Plumlee to get the ball in the post. Plumlee showed there he's capable of making a move, scoring.

Mike Mazzeo

Plumlee with a legit post hook. That's new. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets second unit looks a lot better than it did on Tuesday

Early look at Plumlee and Lopez together, as Mason checks in early for Garnett.

Mike Mazzeo

Brook has controlled the game on both ends, and I can't remember if he's passed the ball yet #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Pleasantly surprised to hear @TimCapstraw on the call for tonight's game on @NBATV

Tom Lorenzo

The Nets should officially change #WeAreBrooklyn to #WeUp just for tonight.

Tom Lorenzo

Since it's currently 12:45PM Sunday in China, and this game happens at 1:00AM Sunday morning, they already know who won, right?

Andrew Keh

The Nets said that coach Lionel Hollins is ill and will miss the team's exhibition against the Kings tonight in Shanghai.

Tim Bontemps

Same starting five again for the Nets: Williams, Bogdanovic, Johnson, Garnett, Lopez. My guess is that will be starting five on October 29.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets going with the same starting lineup: Williams, Bogdanovic, Johnson, Garnett, Lopez

Tom Lorenzo

Same starters for the Nets: Deron Williams, Bojan Bogdanovic, Joe Johnson, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez.

Tom Lorenzo

Paul Westphal will coach the Nets tonight, since Lionel Hollins is ill.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets say Hollins (illness) will not coach tonight. Westphal will fill in on the bench. All details we have right now.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets say Lionel Hollins will not coach the game against the Kings because of an illness. Lead assistant Paul Westphal will fill in.

Tom Lorenzo

Interesting moment pregame. #nets big man coach Joe Wolf huddled w Plumlee, CJ, Willie Reed and Jerome Jordan. #nets

Tim Bontemps

No Alan Anderson again for tonight's game in Shanghai. He practiced yesterday.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets say Alan Anderson will not play tonight. He missed the preseason opener too with an abdominal.

Mike Mazzeo

Sorry, guys. Can't stay out. #Nets-#Kings preseason game at 1 a.m. in China.

Tim Bontemps

The fact that the Knicks could actually have to rely on Cole Aldrich is a sign of just how desperate they really are this season.

Stefan Bondy

Reason Nets are going to have a decent record, regardless of injuries: 16 games against Celtics, 76ers, Knicks, Bucks

Tim Bontemps

If you would rather be a normal human being instead of staying up extra late tonight, you can watch tonight's game at 8:30 a.m. on @NBATV

Tim Bontemps

The Royals are doing something beyond living a charmed life at this point. This is absurd.

Tim Bontemps

MSG is also hilariously showing a replay of Knicks-Celtics at exactly the same time. I'm sure it's a coincidence, though.

Tim Bontemps

You can watch Nets-Kings at 1 a.m. on NBATV, if you're looking for a late-night basketball fix.

Tim Bontemps

Tough news about Bradley Beal being hurt for maybe two months for the Wizards. Could be difference between them getting top four seed or not

#Nets say still no practice for Alan Anderson. His sore right abdominal muscle kept him out of today's session in Shanghai.

Mike Mazzeo

Weird to see PR update about practice at midnight but Anderson remains out with the abdominal #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

An offensive explosion by the Devils tonight. Sign of things to come?

#Celtics hit 100 points v #Knicks. Do I get free curly fries or something?

Going on a limb here but gonna say #Celtics Evan Turner won't lead NBA in assists. Most times hitting side of backboard on wild drive, maybe

Stefan Bondy

I've counted, and Knicks beat writers have combined for 45 shape-related jokes tonight.

Stoudemire starts for Bargnani in second half for #Knicks

Fred Kerber

At current rate, #Knicks Quincy Acy (3 PF in 5:16) will average 27 fouls a game. Just saying

Fred Kerber

Can't decide what's best: preseason games in arenas with lousy wireless, summer league games anywhere or walking barefoot on broken glass

Fred Kerber

Wholesale subs at 5:35 for #Knicks: Stoudemire, Quincy Acy, Cleanthony Early, Shane Larkin and THardaway Jr

Fred Kerber

Damn, just when you have #Knicks Bargnani in the LeBron and KD conversation, he commits two turnovers (charge, travel)

Fred Kerber

#Knicks DFisher sed nagging aches 2 Shumpert, Hardaway were part but JR Smith starts cuz he "consistent in practice, his work ethic...great"
