#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

Tim Bontemps

Not surprised Jason Kidd is trying Giannis Antetokounmpo at point guard. Said back in July that he'd give it a shot.

Tim Bontemps

And here's the beginning of our NBA Season Preview, as we examine the ramifications of Kevin Durant's fractured foot: nyp.st/1z4jDuM

Joe Johnson said Nets are bonding while in China, Brook Lopez looks good and he's not experimenting with local food: nyp.st/1vVVkdO

Here's my Rewind of the Nets' preseason game yesterday, including Bojan Bogdanovic's stronger grip on a starting spot nyp.st/1o6G5z1

Tim Bontemps

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

Stefan Bondy

Making that final cut by any means necessary "VIDEO: Ronnie Price throws shoe at Iguodala ble.ac/1vl9Rlt http://t.co/bNMgh7vSnS”

Stefan Bondy

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

Mike Mazzeo

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.

Brett Yormack

Great game last night. In Beijing now. Big press conference with anta today #NBAGlobalGames

Mike Mazzeo

I believe Julius Thomas would say something like, "Too (bleepin') easy" #nyg

Mike Mazzeo

The Jets are 1-5. They face Brady coming off his best game of the season in Foxborough in four days. Oh joy.

Fred Kerber

There is absolutely nothing wrong with the #Jets that, like, a lot of talent wouldn't cure

Fred Kerber

How bad are #Jets? Fans booing the drum line

Fred Kerber

Watching #Jets offense...coulda sworn "The Walking Dead" wasn't returning until tonight

Tim Bontemps

Here's my Nets Rewind on last night's game, including Bojan Bogdanovic getting a firmer grip on a starting spot: nyp.st/1o6G5z1

Mike Mazzeo

CBS Broadcast says the Jets just took their first lead since Week 2. That Decker injury really hurt them.

Tim Bontemps

Also, if you want a comprehensive look at just what a Jones fracture is, read this piece by @RotowireATC: instreetclothes.com/2014/10/12/bre…

Tim Bontemps

Trainer Tim Grover (@ATTACKATHLETICS) tweets a possible Durant recovery timeline of 10 weeks. Clearly a wide range of possibilities.

Mike Mazzeo

Seeing Walter Powell and Geno Smith made me think of this youtube.com/watch?v=qM79_i…

Tim Bontemps

Sam Presti is asked if Reggie Jackson will be back by start of regular season and does everything but answer the question.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets observations: Lopez looking good so far es.pn/1ELwceU

Tim Bontemps

Is there any way to watch @NBATV on your computer?

Fred Kerber

At #Broncos v #Jets -- or so I thought. Apparently this is a Syracuse home game with all the orange in the seats

Tim Bontemps

Referring to that last retweet of @John Schuhmann ... watching Russell Westbrook have the offense to himself is going to be fascinating.

Stefan Bondy

In 2012, the Nets rushed Brook Lopez back from a fractured foot. They discovered after five games he wasn't fully healed.

Stefan Bondy

Durant skipped FIBA World Cup to prepare "mentally and physically" for this season. Just proof that you can't prevent these type of injuries

Tim Bontemps

Would love for Durant to be back in 6-8 weeks and never have any more issues with it, but there's a chance he could be out far longer.

Tim Bontemps

As someone who has spent far more time than he'd like writing about foot injuries, @Zach Lowe is right: they are tricky & unpredictable.

Tim Bontemps

Durant's injury means the Nets will miss him completely this season – two teams play twice in November. Home on the 3rd, in OKC the 21st.

Tim Bontemps

Imagine a first-round playoff series of, say, OKC-Clippers? Would say that it's at least a possibility now, which would be pretty crazy.

Fred Kerber

Kevin Durant and Bradley Beal both out 6-8 weeks, RRondo still recuperating. Thank God A-Rod's healthy

Tim Bontemps

What I meant was not that OKC might be in danger of missing playoffs, but that they could wind up middle-of-the-pack instead of 1st or 2nd.

Tim Bontemps

Huge news with Kevin Durant needing to miss two months because of a fractured foot. Could have a big impact on Western Conference standings.

Stefan Bondy

Terrible news with Kevin Durant fracturing his right foot. Thunder is saying he's out 6-to-8 weeks after surgery.

Mike Mazzeo

Kevin Durant out 6-8 weeks with a broken right foot. #Nets face #Thunder on Nov. 3. Would've been fun.

Mike Mazzeo

Joe Johnson on Brook Lopez: "He's been that dominant low-post presence that we've missed." #Nets

Stefan Bondy

Hollins out last night in China w/ illness. Westphal took his spot. Must still be sick cause he was replaced by J Johnson on conference call

Mike Mazzeo

Starter minutes from the morning: Bojan 28, Deron 27, Johnson 26, Brook 25, KG 11

Mike Mazzeo

AP recap: #Nets edge Kings 97-95 in China es.pn/1vYnYdp

Tim Bontemps

Thankfully overtime is avoided as Nets win. Sergey Karasev defends Ben McLemore's drive as buzzer sounded. Nets now 2-0 in preseason.

Tim Bontemps

Of course, since I tweeted Deron has played well today he's missed three or four open shots in a row. But he still looks good.

Tim Bontemps

Deron Williams playing well again tonight. 10 points, five assists, two steals in 23 minutes.

Mike Mazzeo

OK, Brook Lopez just made an offense pass. The preseason can end.

Tim Bontemps

I've wondered about same point @NateDuncanNBA just raised. Could be tough for Nets to post up Joe Johnson, in particular, while Brook's in.

Mike Mazzeo

Yes, I realize Brook Lopez does not average many assists. But I'm just talking about passes in general.

Mike Mazzeo

Brook Lopez, will you make a pass on the offensive end of the court? No. No, it does not look like you will.

Tim Bontemps

Lots of TV time for Nets PR and NBA PR during these free throws.

Mike Mazzeo

Will any of the teams the #Nets face this preseason win 30 games?

Tim Bontemps

Garnett is looking very confident taking his jump shot. There were times last year he seemed hesitant to pull the trigger.

Tim Bontemps

Should also shout out @JustinShackil on the play-by-play of this game.

Tim Bontemps

Some good minutes here from Jerome Jordan. Fighting for one of the open spots at the end of the roster.

Mike Mazzeo

Deron Williams PNR against the #Kings defense. That should work most of the time.

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins has said he wants Mason Plumlee to get the ball in the post. Plumlee showed there he's capable of making a move, scoring.

Mike Mazzeo

Plumlee with a legit post hook. That's new. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets second unit looks a lot better than it did on Tuesday

Tom Lorenzo

Joe Johnson is wearing the black and white #XX9's tonight. instagram.com/p/uCcWruRh_1/

Tim Bontemps

Early look at Plumlee and Lopez together, as Mason checks in early for Garnett.

Mike Mazzeo

Brook has controlled the game on both ends, and I can't remember if he's passed the ball yet #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Pleasantly surprised to hear @TimCapstraw on the call for tonight's game on @NBATV

Tom Lorenzo

The Nets should officially change #WeAreBrooklyn to #WeUp just for tonight.

Tom Lorenzo

Since it's currently 12:45PM Sunday in China, and this game happens at 1:00AM Sunday morning, they already know who won, right?

Andrew Keh

The Nets said that coach Lionel Hollins is ill and will miss the team's exhibition against the Kings tonight in Shanghai.

Tim Bontemps

Same starting five again for the Nets: Williams, Bogdanovic, Johnson, Garnett, Lopez. My guess is that will be starting five on October 29.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets going with the same starting lineup: Williams, Bogdanovic, Johnson, Garnett, Lopez

Tom Lorenzo

Same starters for the Nets: Deron Williams, Bojan Bogdanovic, Joe Johnson, Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez.

Tom Lorenzo

Paul Westphal will coach the Nets tonight, since Lionel Hollins is ill.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets say Hollins (illness) will not coach tonight. Westphal will fill in on the bench. All details we have right now.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets say Lionel Hollins will not coach the game against the Kings because of an illness. Lead assistant Paul Westphal will fill in.

Tom Lorenzo

Hello China: Brooklyn #Nets at Sacramento Kings Game Thread, 1:00 AM, NBA TV. sbnation.com/e/6726460

Lenn Robbins

Interesting moment pregame. #nets big man coach Joe Wolf huddled w Plumlee, CJ, Willie Reed and Jerome Jordan. #nets

Lenn Robbins

#Nets about to tip off vs #sacramentokings in #Shenghai Alan Anderson out w an strain.

Lenn Robbins

One devout KG fan has been staking out the team hotel for 3 days straight. Big Ticket is In demand in #China #Nets http://t.co/yqZuIc8S10

Tim Bontemps

No Alan Anderson again for tonight's game in Shanghai. He practiced yesterday.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets say Alan Anderson will not play tonight. He missed the preseason opener too with an abdominal.

Mike Mazzeo

Sorry, guys. Can't stay out. #Nets-#Kings preseason game at 1 a.m. in China.
