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

Stefan Bondy

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

Tim Bontemps

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.

Brett Yormack

Congrats to the #Isles and @NYislanders fans on a big win tonight over the Rangers.

Andrew Keh

No offense but if you gchat me from invisible you're pretty much forever dead to me

Stefan Bondy

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

Stefan Bondy

Expansion club NYCFC has sold 10,000 season tickets for first year in Yankee Stadium.

Mike Mazzeo

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

And the Nets and Celtics will play a little bit shorter game than usual this Sunday: nyp.st/1sNl7Fw

Those four minutes of basketball will fade from your conscious as quickly as the BrooklynKnight

Andrew Keh

I propose a national anthem shot clock.

Stefan Bondy

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.

Mike Mazzeo

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

Deron Williams

Just had an interview with the #ChinaDaily. Love the gift from my fans!

Brett Yormack

Just left Adidas store in Beijing . Lots of nets merch in store. Lopez , Johnson ,kg and Deron all featured.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets say Westphal is handling coaching at practice Tuesday. Hollins (illness) availability will be determined Wednesday.

Mike Mazzeo

Aka winning championships or employing superstars RT @FlaPanthers Loyalty is best earned on the back of virtue, honor and integrity.

#Knicks scoreboard doing the Geico Dance Cam. Waiting for the "Pepto Bismol I Am So Sick of Preseason" Cam

Tim Bontemps

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

Fred Kerber

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

Fred Kerber

#Knicks Calderon on #Raptors DCasey: "I liked that w/me he was always honest. He talked 2 me & told me what he needed 2 say."

Fred Kerber

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

Fred Kerber

Hey, here's a happy thought: if it stays like this, #Knicks v #Raptors will go to overtime. In the preseason. That's like eating tinfoil

Fred Kerber

After one quarter, #Knicks 12, #Raptors 12. 12 fans bored to tears. Can we just say first to 40 wins and go home?

Fred Kerber

#Knicks v #Raptors needs a couple delay of game warnings to liven matters up

Fred Kerber

Seriously, the #Giants had more offense Sunday night than this #Knicks v #Raptors...thing

Tim Bontemps

At MSG tonight for Knicks-Raptors. @Al Iannazzone was disappointed to see me instead of @Alex Raskin

Fred Kerber

After 9 minutes it's #Knicks 10, #Raptors 7. But Toronto moving into field goal territory

Fred Kerber

#Raptors DCasey coached #Knicks Jose Calderon for 2 yrs: “He’s one of the most beautiful leaders I’ve ever been around...Very knowledgeable"

Here's another look at the first part of my NBA season preview, on the many ramifications of Kevin Durant's injury: nyp.st/1z4jDuM

The YES Network will broadcast both of the Nets' preseason home games next week: vs. Celtics on Sunday and 76ers on Monday.

Stefan Bondy

Wednesday's game against the Kings will be on NBATV. The Nets final preseason game -- at Boston on Oct. 23 -- will not be televised.

Stefan Bondy

YES Network will televise two preseason Nets games -- Oct. 19 vs Boston and Oct. 20 vs Philly

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets Sunday and Monday's preseason games against Boston and Philly will be on YES Network

Tim Bontemps

Maybe I was wrong about the Lakers. I somehow haven't been flooded with fans telling me how they will be good this year. I'm pretty shocked.

Tim Bontemps

I get the deference to Kobe, but this team has a real chance to be the worst in the West.

Tim Bontemps

I think so many people are underestimating the horror show the Lakers are going to be this season.

Mike Mazzeo

Just when you thought you'd seen everything, baseball

Victor Cruz's season may be over and we're watching commercials. ....

Poor Victor Cruz. He had his breakout game on this very field three years ago.

Stefan Bondy

Oh no. Non-contact injury and Victor Cruz is grabbing his knee.

Stefan Bondy

Thanksgiving dinner is gonna be awkward when Coughlin is begging Chris Snee to come back.

Mike Mazzeo

The Giants season has been over pretty much every other week in the Coughlin era. This happens to be one of those weeks.

Stefan Bondy

Maybe if Coughlin huffs and puffs a little more on the sideline his team won't be so undisciplined.
