Nets-Bulls is soooooo last year.
However, I do think there's a chance we'll see it some – and especially if the Nets face the Bulls (and Noah/Boozer/Gibson) in round one.
I wouldn't count on seeing a ton of the two big lineups in the playoffs – the Nets have won all these games playing small, after all.
Bulls lose to the Knicks, and the Nets are now back to being matched up with the Bulls in the first round of the playoffs.
KG & Blatche hadn't played together since the switch to the smallball lineup, while KG & Plumlee had only played three minutes since then.
The Nets played pairings of KG/Blatche and KG/Plumlee together three minutes tonight. How rare is that?
Jason Kidd on Mason Plumlee not getting ROY consideration: "You can blame me. I don't let him shoot outside of the paint."
Nets win 97-86, and now officially can finish no lower than sixth in the Eastern Conference. Will finish 5th either with a win or Wizards L.
Andrew Nicholson just did to Mason Plumlee what LeBron James could not – dunk on him.
Hard to see this being called a flagrant. Was hard, but pretty clearly he was going for the ball. Plumlee is fine.
Nets take the lead after bombing a few threes. Fact Pierce is sitting on the bench is a good sign that he's all right.
That may have been the last time we see Pierce in the regular season, who knows at this point? Good sign is he remained on bench.
Would be surprised if we see either Pierce or Garnett again tonight.
Paul Pierce comes up clutching his neck/shoulder. He's coming out.
Now Plumlee and Garnett are in together.
Scary moment for the Nets as Kevin Garnett nearly flipped over Dewayne Dedmon and fell on his back. Appears to be OK, though.
With both Chicago and Toronto employing traditional two-big lineups, we'll see if that happens next week.
Interesting. Nets have switched to a two big lineup for the first time in as long as I can remember to try and slow down Magic big men.
Not a good showing from Andray Blatche.
Andray Blatche is set to check in for the first time since Saturday in Philadelphia. Sat Tuesday/Wednesday with illness, DNP-CD Friday.
Marcus Thornton just threw that alley oop up to about the moon and Mason Plumlee still managed to catch it and throw it down. Wow.
One guy started the "Broook-lyyyn" chant by himself. No one joined in. It's Sunday. Game 80.
Make that four turnovers.
Very sloppy start for the Nets, who have already committed three turnovers.
Very sparse crowd in the lower bowl today for this one. Not surprising given opponent, stakes and beautiful weather outside.
Raptors beat the Pistons. Bulls will try to keep pace and remain in the third-seed tonight against Knicks.
Brook Lopez at center court, in a walking boot, thanking fans: "Thank you for your support, we'll see you in the playoffs"
It must be nice to make $100 million. Deron's Ferrari. http://t.co/LyK08F9hgs
Nelson hurt his groin last game. Vucevic is being sat out for the year as a precaution, to give minutes to help develop other bigs.
Jameer Nelson is OUT with. Left groin strain. Nik Vucevic is out for the year.
Everyone but Livingston and Anderson are available tonight.
Tim Howard likes the word "brilliant" more than most people from Jersey.

Longevity is the key
Let's go my cousin pacquiao bout to take this
On the same night the Knickerbockers are ousted, the Dutchmen win it all. A championship for New York State. Go crazy, Schenectady
A meaningful game between the Nets-Knicks on Tuesday would have been fun, though.
One thing is certain: the computers were right about the Knicks.
The Heat are 11-of-12 from the floor in the 2nd quarter, the Hawks are 4-of-13. Guess who is winning.
Pac Man r Bradley who y'all got tonight
Shaun Livingston and Alan Anderson are not playing tomorrow for the Nets.
Jason Kidd says he's not going to tighten his rotation in the postseason.
Pierce is 13 points away from scoring 1,000 points for 15th straight season. Joining only Kareem, Mailman, Havlicek, Elvin Hayes and Parish.
If the Nets wind up playing Raptors, I'm guessing the series is going to start Saturday. If it's Nets-Bulls, think it'll start Sunday.
KG: "It's kind of dope to see your great friends, best friends. ... We've reached some accomplishments together. Tonight was all about him."
Kevin Garnett said he welcomed Paul Pierce into the 25,000-point scorer club. Pierce laughed when that was mentioned to him.
Thornton yells to Pierce to remember who assisted on 25,000th point. Pierce used my suggested line: "It was your first assist of the season"
Marcus Thornton yells over to Pierce (re 25,000th point): "Hey, remember who threw you the pass. I'm in the history books, too!"
