Something to watch: Jarrett Jack has tendinitis in his elbow. Warmed up with kinesthetic tape. Says he's fine, just wear & tear.

Devin Kharpertian

Always a different feeling at Barclays Center when LeBron comes to town. More fans, more courtside pregame buzz.

Tim Bontemps

Blatt also said, however, that teams being worse at home "is a mystery to him." It is to everyone else, too.

Tim Bontemps

David Blatt has a theory on why Nets may be better on the road: "Sometimes teams perform better away from the pressure of being at home."

Lenn Robbins

#Nets Hollins: Defending @LeBron James We've got to be ready to help when he attacks & b disciplined & stay home when he's just trying to bait.

Mike Mazzeo

David Blatt does not use Twitter or Instagram, in case you were curious.

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins: "The players earn coach of the year award for the coach, just like they do for the executive of the year for the executive."

Devin Kharpertian

It took some digging, but Lionel Hollins said Mason Plumlee will start for Thaddeus Young. Rest of the starters remain the same.

Lenn Robbins

"I'm not afraid to put guys in the game and see what they can do." - Hollins on giving Earl Clark minutes.. Clark will wear No.55

Tim Bontemps

Starters will be the same except for Mason Plumlee for Thaddeus Young

Mason will start for Thaddeus.

There’s a segment on ESPN about a hockey team mad at its fans for cheering for the other team. This is a regular occurrence in Brooklyn.

Check out my story on 'Eazy Early Clark, who signed with the #nets today...nba.com/nets/earl-clar…

Tim Bontemps

Other thing to remember about Durant: team says he'll be back in "4-6 months." A bone graft isn't a minor procedure.

Mike Mazzeo

Foot injuries. Brook knows. Hopefully KD will be back to his old self by this time next season.

Tim Bontemps

I don't, but either one would bring the kind of energy and passion the progrem needs to get back on track. twitter.com/seanflatts/sta…

Tim Bontemps

Of those four guys, think Danny Hurley and Steve Masiello are be most likely to wind up there. Both would be great hires.

Tim Bontemps

St. John's needs guys who have been in the college game. Too big a rebuilding job. Don't think Mullin makes sense. twitter.com/marc_raimondi/…

Tim Bontemps

I would be surprised if Miller left -- think Dayton's a better job -- but any of those four guys would be exactly what St. John's needs.

Tim Bontemps

Here should be the people for St. John's to call: Archie Miller, Bobby Hurley, Danny Hurley, Steve Masiello. Any of them would be terrific.

Lenn Robbins

#Nets player #EarlClark spoke to former #Mountaineers @Devin Ebanks on #NCAATournament “I did call to rub it in his face. I did do that.’’

Devin Kharpertian

The last update was that Kevin Durant was shut down indefinitely, likely for the year. What could another update possibly be?

Devin Kharpertian

In 2013, Earl Clark suggested the baby name “Fresh Prince” to Kate Middleton & Prince William. nba.com/lakers/news/13…

Stefan Bondy

ESPN (which loves Jason Kidd) ranks Billy King/Dmitry Razumov combo as the worst in the NBA. Mikhail Prokhorov voted as second-worst owner.

Stefan Bondy

Having grown up in the Bronx, I used to be a huge Yankee fan. Today I can't even name their middle infield.

Mike Mazzeo

He doesn't have to give us 49 points or his team's final 17 in a row. He's already done that. A ferocious dunk or two will do.

Mike Mazzeo

Without Reggie Evans or the Prince or the Dutchess, how will LeBron find motivation tonight?

Stefan Bondy

Ryan Meara is now available for NYCFC but Kreis tells me Josh Saunders has earned right to be starting keeper for "the foreseeable future."

Stefan Bondy

What will Kreis do without Velasquez and Williams? I'm thinking Wingert moves to left back, Siriboe starts at centerback, Calle on the wing

Mike Mazzeo

Mikhail Prokhorov comes in 29th in our ESPN owner rankings. Only James Dolan worse. #Nets #NYK espn.go.com/newyork/nba/st…

Rod Boone

Leave it to @Lenn Robbins to ask the new guy the only question that truly matters: instagram.com/p/0vI-5GoWS5/

Stefan Bondy

Sebastian Velasquez and Josh Williams officially ruled out of tomorrow's game for NYCFC. Williams back to limited training, though.

Devin Kharpertian

Why are people asking if Kentucky could beat an NBA team again? Have we not gotten past this?

Devin Kharpertian

Clark has played with five teams in five years, talked the struggle of sticking with a team: bkga.me/1yj4II5 “I deserve to be here.”

Rod Boone

Clark hadn't even spoken to Lionel Hollins yet by the time #Nets finished their morning shoot at Barclays. Was waiting to chat with him.

Rod Boone

Earl Clark on what he will bring to #Nets: "Whatever they need me to do out here to help them win games, then that's what I'm here to do."

Rod Boone

Earl Clark: "I'm just thankful for the opportunity. I've been waiting for it and I'm blessed." #Nets

Rod Boone

Earl Clark said he's surprised to be with #Nets. Said he was home working out when his agent called him and told him to come to Brooklyn.

Related: Jarrett Jack is friends with literally everybody who has ever played in the NBA.

Devin Kharpertian

Earl Clark said he learned about the team from Jarrett Jack, who he called a "good friend.”

Tom Lorenzo

Earl Clark appeared in 19 games with the Shandong Flaming Bulls (in China) during the 14-15 season. He averaged 26.7 points & 10.3 rebs per.

Tom Lorenzo

The Nets announce they've signed Earl Clark to a 10-day contract.

Rod Boone

#Nets have signed forward Earl Clark to a 10-day contract. He'll wear No. 55

Tim Bontemps

And Earl Clark is here at shootaround. Won't be surprised if he gets time tonight.

Stefan Bondy

The Nets have signed forward Earl Clark on a 10-day contract.

Should've known that was a fake account.

I can't think of anyone who has ever confused me more than V Stiviano.

Tim Bontemps

Huge pair of wins for the Bucks over the Heat and Pacers, allowing them to once again get a firm grip on sixth place in the East.

Tim Bontemps

So with Milwaukee beating Indiana, the Nets are now in a three-way tie with Pacers, Hornets for ninth, half-game behind eighth place Celtics

Tim Bontemps

Sam Dekker certainly has played like he is a first round pick tonight.

Brook Lopez averaging 30.8-9.0-3.5 blocks on 65.8% shooting in the past week (four games). Good week, I’d say.

Nets' Young has strained knee, out vs. Cavs es.pn/1NjDEzr via @ESPNNewYork

Rod Boone

Looked worse at the time, but it's really good news for #Nets. As Deron said last night, they need Thad for the stretch run.

Rod Boone

#Nets say Thad's MRI revealed a left knee strain. He's out tomorrow vs. #Cavs and doubtful for Sunday's game vs. #Lakers.

Tim Bontemps

All things considered, that's as good an outcome as the Nets could have hoped for. Gives him a shot to be back for the final couple weeks.

Mike Mazzeo

Thad Young (left knee strain): out tomorrow and doubtful for Sunday per #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Nets announce Thaddeus Young has a left knee strain. Won't play against the Cavaliers, is doubtful to play against the Lakers.

Devin Kharpertian

Good news for Thad Young: MRI revealed only a strain. Out tomorrow, doubtful vs. Lakers.
