Someone needs to tell this cat it's time for a new jersey. Maybe even one with sleeves too: http://t.co/yr6gRvOO0Q
Pro tip: nothing embarrasses your girl more than dancing to the Young Rascals in the middle of the street and tweeting about it.
Let. It. Fly.
Tony. Chill, brah.
Had the great pleasure of flying home with ace Post photographer Charlie Wenzelburg. You'll see his excellent work in tomorrow's paper.
Andrei Kirilenko is healthy, according to Jason Kidd. He's just out of the rotation.
Road teams are 3-0. 'Sup, Grizzlies?
Paul Pierce said he doesn't remember if he played in a game where shot clock broke. "Since I'm a dinosaur, it's been so long."
For Raptors fans who now hate me: I'm from Western NY, Buffalo is my favorite city and I've vacationed in Toronto. But I accept your hate.
I'm kind of enjoying having a large segment of the Raptors fan base warring in my mentions.
So much profanity tonight, including from the Toronto fan who just said Ujiri's choice word over and over and over and over.
KG on how many times he's seen Pierce go off: "Countless man. I knew that when he took that 3, that he had a rhythm. He was Classic Truth."
I feel like this quote reveals a lot about Paul Pierce: "It’s fun to go on the road... I think it’s more gratifying than winning at home."
Paul Pierce said he can't recall a shot clock situation like that: "I'm a dinosaur. It's been so long."
Someone just asked Dawne Casey if he's worried the team is disappointing fans? Huh? After one game?
"It doesn't offend me whatsoever. That's Masai. That's why our team plays like that." Dwane Casey on Ujiri's profanity.
The fans are booing Paul Pierce as he walks into the tunnel, and he is loving it, smiling huge and pointing his fingers in the air.
Paul Pierce raises one finger (no, not that one) on each hand and walks out with a big smile on his face as he's showered with boos.
As Pierce walked off the court, he threw his headband to a fan – who threw it right back.
A fan behind us has used the word Masai Ujiri used before Brooklyn 70 times in the last minute.
Pierce caught on replays after that turnaround jumper at the top of the key shouting, "That's why I'm here! That's why I'm here."
Paul Pierce has decided the Nets are going to win this game.
Paul Pierce is not old. Dude is COLD.
".7, 2, 1...HORN"
Please tell me he's going to countdown from 3.7 seconds.
Paul Pierce, ignoring the rules of basketball, takes 100 steps on that layup. Nets lead, 84-78.
Woah, Pierce just got away with a travel.
That was a blatant travel by Paul Pierce.
The PA guy has to announce "horn" to get the teams back onto the floor. This can't be happening.
This can only end one way: with the guy holding the stopwatch to press the wrong button on the final possession
That was a flop by Kyle Lowry. Another bad moment for the referees today. At least they've been equally bad.
Back-and-forth they go ...
And for the second straight afternoon playoff game, making my flight home is an iffy proposition. Last time I failed.
If Mirza is not hitting shots – and he isn't today – he's not helping you a whole lot. Especially at the expense of Andrei Kirilenko.
Kidd went with his bench too long there. Game tied 63-63 with 6:25 left.
Shaun Livingston's mid-range game has been big for the Nets today.
Turnovers in this game are now 18 for Toronto and eight for the Nets.
I cannot believe Andrei Kirilenko hasn't played in this game.
Mirza cannot leave Patrick Patterson in the corner.
The Nets are now 3-for-21 from 3-point range. Most of them have been wide open. It's the only reason this game is close.
Well, we know what happens when the shot clock expires. Raptors announcer says "horn." You can't make this stuff up.
The PA announcer just said the word, "Horn" as Marcus Thornton let that shot fly.
The P.A. guy said the word "Horn."
There is a banner here hanging from the rafters, slightly set off from the retired numbers and championships, that just reads, "Bon Jovi."
I just hope, personally, that the shot clock not working doesn't factor into the outcome either way. Would be terrible.
Big shot by Kyle Lowry to end the third, and we head into the fourth quarter with the Nets leading 67-62. Should be a fun finish.
These aren't doing much good right now. http://t.co/7YvQ3o5yte
