Nets are bringing over extra defenders in PNR for no reason and Boston is feasting inside as a result.
The Celtics have started the second quarter with a 9-0 run and have taken a 30-28 lead. Lineup in for the Nets has been pretty dreadful.
I’ve never seen a made basket called a jump ball, but here we are!
Jarrett Jack is at his best when he’s keeping Jarrett Jack from being Jarrett Jack.
Free throws so far: Boston 0-0, Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
Nets starting off the second with Jarrett Jack, Bojan Bogdanovic, Alan Anderson, Thaddeus Young and Mason Plumlee.
Good start for the Nets, who lead 28-23 and who still haven't committed a foul. Eight points for both Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez.
Brook Lopez’s touch on those quick floaters in the lane is remarkable.
We are almost eight minutes into this game and the Nets haven't been called for a single foul yet.
Smart & Zeller both with two fouls in the first quarter and Stevens is letting them play. Interesting.
Tyler Zeller stays in despite two fouls. Thaddeus Young with seven quick points.
There needs to be a Phantom Cam focused on Brook Lopez’s face at all times.
Thaddeus Young attacking Tyler Zeller on every possession early.
It is empty inside Barclays Center during introductions. Just as many green shirts and jerseys as black ones, too.
Very nice job by the national anthem singer, who started to repeat a line but seamlessly jumped back ahead to where she was supposed to be.
Nets have a moment of silence before the game for the seven Sassoon children that died in a fire in Brooklyn.
My mentions are an accurate representation of what I would say in response to that.
Uh, Deron Williams just did a 360 dunk in pregame warmups.
Rockets-Pacers without Paul George, Dwight Howard, Rodney Stuckey and Terrence Jones is not as exciting as you'd think.
Hollins on not playing Deron-Jarrett combo: "Bogey has played so well it's not enough time to put both of those guys out there together."
Lionel Hollins basically said Bojan Bogdanovic’s improvement is why he's limited minutes for the Deron-Jack combo.
Bird thinks McHale could've went for 70 that game. But he checked out early. "I was tired," McHale said with a laugh.
March 3, 1985: McHale goes for 56. Bird says he's going to beat that. Nine days later, he scores 60. Bird said, "'Told ya.'" McHale said.
Brad Stevens said Isaiah Thomas didn’t make the trip, won’t play tonight vs. Nets.
Brad Stevens says Isaiah Thomas should be probable to go Wednesday night for the Celtics against the Heat.
Brad Stevens on topsy-turvy nature of East death march: "We all react to what happened yesterday. That's the nature of this league, right?"
The Beard will draw Solomon Hill and others tonight. http://t.co/wg1ERI69T3
Isaiah Thomas is out for the Celtics.
Lionel Hollins on the way things are shaking out in East playoff picture: "I'm amazed anyone wants to change the rules."
Hollins, on if he's amazed that the Nets are back in the playoff race: "I'm amazed that anyone would want to change the (playoff) rules."
Lionel Hollins said he's stopped playing Deron Williams and Jarrett Jack together because of the way Bojan Bogdanovic has played.
With Hornets playing Bulls and Pacers playing Rockets, winner of Nets-Celtics might be the 8th seed by the end of the night.
Hail storm in Indy.
Lopez averaged 21 points 9.5 rebounds and three blocks. Nets went 3-1. For some reason he doesn't even get nominated for Player of Week.
The most fascinating thing in the Matt Harvey profile is that Players Tribune gives athletes real business cards with their editorial titles
Big week for Nets. Boston (1/2 game up on Nets) tomorrow, Hornets (1 game up) Wednesday. Tiebreakers in play with both.
I wish loved anything as much as Matt Harvey loves the John Varvatos store
Matt Harvey loves John Varvatos so much he took two different magazine profile writers there.
The NY Mag profile of Matt Harvey confirms he's the type of person who orders food like, "I'll do...", "Can I do..."
So, the race for the last spot in the East is just a wee bit scrunched. http://t.co/q30YfdOqCP
Just got back to NYC for the first time in 13 days, only for it to be colder than anywhere I was while I was gone. What was I missing again?
Whatever happens with George will have an impact on the race for eighth one way or another. Indy has dropped five straight.
The winner of Nets-Hornets Wednesday & Nets-Pacers next Tuesday will hold tie-break advantage. If Nets win tonight, will depend on div. rec.
With Nets ensured of losing tie-break with Heat, these Celtics and Hornets games are huge not only to gain ground but to earn tie-breaks.
Nets are four-point favorites tonight at home against the Celtics. Win would even season series, give them shot at all-important tie-breaker
The entrance to the Columbus airport looks like it's straight out of Fallout 3.
Mark Turgeon tears up talking about his team, its accomplishments this year. "I just thanked them for being who they are. A special group."
Maryland coach Mark Turgeon said that the team doctor cleared Melo Trimble to come back the first time, but didn't the second time.
Melo Trimble will not be available post game.
Maryland locker room was supposed to be open 15 minutes ago. Have been told that it is "coach's decision" that it has remained closed.
West Virginia wins 69-59, earns a trip to the Sweet 16 for the first time in five years. But the story of this game will be Melo Trimble.
I'm not sure many schools/coaches would do what Maryland and Mark Turgeon are doing right now with Melo Trimble. And that's a compliment.
Melo Trimble has a head injury, and is out for the game, per Maryland official.
Melo Trimble at the end of Maryland's bench. Looks very upset. His mom was there briefly, then went back to her seat. http://t.co/1vkHkMLapp
Trimble is on the bench and looks really upset. Can't quite tell what's the matter with him. Maryland on the ropes now, down 53-46.
Things going from bad to worse for Maryland, as star freshman Melo Trimble gets accidentally kicked in the head by his own teammate.
Melo Trimble just got laid out on a screen here in Columbus after burying a huge 3-pointer. Maryland ball down three w/ exactly 15 mins left
I picked Maryland to win the NCAA tournament because I went there.
Forgot Isiah on that list. He was also too good but short career.
There was a time I thought Penny Hardaway was gonna be better than them all.
