The Devils put out a new goal song youtube.com/watch?v=yIyTHW… Sounds somewhat like the Rangers goal song with Islander woos

That #Isles D Travis Harmonic piece on @E60 is well worth your time and (probably) tears. Great work @JeremySchaap

Commissioner Don Garber makes his demand of Jurgen Klinsmann: stop the public bashing of MLS nydn.us/ZEP4Mb

Tim Bontemps

I don't know why the players union would approve of shorter games in terms of minutes. It would only hurt its rank-and-file members.

Tim Bontemps

But in all seriousness, should be some fun basketball talk if anyone decides to make the trip.

Tim Bontemps

If any of my followers show up to Dylan Murphy's tomorrow I'll say hello to you and make @JADubin5 make you impossibly hard drinks.

Tim Bontemps

If you're in NYC tomorrow, be sure to go to Dylan Murphy's and give @JADubin5 incredibly hard drink orders. Make him earn those tips.

Kia announced it will pay LeBron James to help market their cars. The press release notes he owns a "fleet of exotic automobiles."

Tim Bontemps

The fact that Steve Nash hurt his back lifting bags doesn't lead to much optimism about him making it through the season healthy.

Andrew Keh

"He needs to think very, very hard about how he manages himself publicly," Don Garber, the commissioner of MLS, said about Jurgen Klinsmann.

Stefan Bondy

Don Garber: "I believe that Landon should have been in Brazil. ...His treatment was inexcusable."

Stefan Bondy

Don Garber on Klinsmann's comments: "Personally, they're infuriating. ..frustrating as hell."

Stefan Bondy

Garber continued: "I don't think anyone is above the sport. ... Klinsmann's comments are detrimental to our league. And they're wrong."

Stefan Bondy

Commish Garber addresses Klinsmann disparaging MLS: "I will do everything and anything to defend our league."

Tough to be a Nets fan this preseason: 1st game is not televised, 2nd is at 1 a.m., 3rd is at 7:30 a.m., 4th is cut by four minutes.

Here's my Rewind of today's game in Beijing, with thoughts on Brook Lopez, Mirza Teletovic and Bojan Bogdanovic: nyp.st/1DbRD6Y

Tim Bontemps

Hollins says Nets had "awesome" ball movement, and was very happy with how the starting five looked. Wasn't happy with young guys.

Mike Mazzeo

Lionel: "I think Bojan has surprised us with his steady play. Deron has been really consistent, his health is back, playing with confidence"

Mike Mazzeo

Lionel Hollins liked play of Deron Williams, the starters, Jerome Jordan and the young kids. Didn't like play of second unit. #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Nets win 129-117 in overtime over the Kings.

Tom Lorenzo

The Nets are giving fans the extra 4 minutes they took from Sundays game.

Tim Bontemps

Also, there shouldn't be overtime in preseason games. #HoopIdea

Stefan Bondy

Nets with opportunity to win the game in final seconds. Plumlee throws a turnover. Preseason overtime.

Tim Bontemps

Oh, please don't go to overtime.

Mike Mazzeo

Yep MT @WSMG_Austin Williams looks like he did 3 years (ago). If he can stay healthy he should have his best year in a while.

Tim Bontemps

Little late on this, but the new NBA marketing commercial is pretty cool: youtube.com/watch?v=Lu4HbZ…

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams has looked terrific after halftime. Teletovic now has five 3-pointers.

Tim Bontemps

Man, Mirza Teletovic will never hesitate to shoot.

Mike Mazzeo

Looks like Deron Williams has gotten rid of the splint

Rod Boone

#Nets defense is in need of some improvement. Getting beat way too much, especially in that second quarter. They trail #Kings 57-48 at half.

Stefan Bondy

Nets are going to run into problems throughout long season if they can't rely on Marquis Teague to give minutes

Tim Bontemps

Another nice post-up by Bogdanovic, this time on Nik Stauskas.

Stefan Bondy

Here is the cow. http://t.co/6UftQDFBuU

There's a cow shaking his head at me while holding a sign in this Chinese TV feed of the Nets game.

Tim Bontemps

Alan Anderson makes his preseason debut to start the second quarter.

Tim Bontemps

Brook Lopez plays the entire first quarter, finishes with 14 points, three rebounds and two blocked shots.

Tim Bontemps

This has been Bogdanovic's best game of the preseason by miles.

Mike Mazzeo

:'( RT @Steve Popper Turns computer on. Sees Nets writers tweeting play by play of Nets game 6900 miles away. Throws computer in lake.

Tim Bontemps

And now Bogdanovic knocks down the corner 3-pointer. Big reason why he's almost certain to be the team's fifth starter.

Tim Bontemps

Beautiful give-and-go for Bogdanovic and Teletovic there leading to a Bogdanovic layup.

Tom Lorenzo

It's way too early for that standing cow graphic, NBA TV.

Mike Mazzeo

Looks like Deron Williams has some sort of tape on his right wrist, though it may be a wrist band I can't tell

Tim Bontemps

The Nets are much better off when Lopez catches the ball moving towards the hoop. Keeps him from getting stagnant and holding the ball.

Tim Bontemps

Still waiting for Brook Lopez's first pass on the offensive end of the preseason.

Tim Bontemps

No Kevin Garnett or DeMarcus Cousins in this game today. NBA can't be too happy about that.

Tim Bontemps

About to spend the next 2.5 hours listening to @ChrisCarrino and @TimCapstraw calling Nets-Kings on @NBATV

Mike Mazzeo

Hollins is coaching and Garnett is sitting so Teletovic is starting #Nets about to tip against the #Kings in Beijing on NBATV

Kevin Garnett is getting a rest day today in Beijing & Lionel Hollins will coach. Starters: Williams, Bogdanovic, Johnson, Teletovic, Lopezz

Perfectly played road game by the #Devils tonight. Amazing what four scoring lines and mobile defense can do for a team.

As Klinsmann continues to disparage level of MLS, I doubt it's going to spark change. League is committed to slow-growth model.

KG's mentality is to 'be more aggressive' es.pn/1w5fh0Z

Stefan Bondy

That's not a knock, but rather a compliment. Players should do less time tweeting, especially when as a whole they haven't met expectations

Stefan Bondy

Don't know the answer, but I'd be curious to see if there's a starting 5 less active or personal on Twitter than the Nets.

Stefan Bondy

Hollins, BTW, missed today's practice with the same illness that kept him out of preseason game. Assistant Paul Westphal is running things.

Stefan Bondy

Bovada odds: Bojan Bogdanovic 30/1 to win ROY; Hollins at 35/1 for COY. Hollins actually good bet since expectations have plummeted.

Tim Bontemps

Nets are building quite the goodwill with the NBA -- volunteering for overseas trips, nickname jerseys, shorter games.

Tom Lorenzo

. @numberFire puts the Nets playoff chances at 47.53% and their Championship chances at 0.3%. numberfire.com/nba/news/3252/…

Stefan Bondy

Not only reduce minutes but also the number of games in a season. Coaches are forcing that hand with all the DNPs for rest.

Stefan Bondy

Been to countless games where first 42 minutes were listless and felt like a stutter to final 6. Can't think of reason not to shorten games

Stefan Bondy

NBA announces that it's experimenting with a 44-minute game with Nets and Celtics as the guinea pigs for preseason game Oct. 19 at Barclays.

#NBA officially announces that #Nets and #Celtics will play a 44-minute game this Sunday, league is experimenting with shorter game time

Finally, in the fourth quarter of Knicks-Raptors, a reason to pay attention: Bruno Caboclo is in the game.

Damn, I was hoping in second half of #Knicks v #Raptors Toronto would wear its "F**K Brooklyn" jerseys

I hate to admit it, but I've seen this #Knicks v #Raptors game like 100 times before over in the Meadowlands with the #Nets
