Good win finally headed to Brooklyn
Remarkably, Monday's game will give them a chance to get back to .500 for the first time since Nov. 5. Still haven't been above all year.
Now we'll se if they can make any more progress up through the East, beginning Monday against the Bulls.
All in all, a pretty successful road trip for the Nets. Finished 4-2, maintained a top six spot in Eastern Conference playoff chase.
The Get Back
Andray Blatche on Kevin Garnett: "He's probably the smartest defensive player I've ever seen."
Kidd on impact of Jason Collins: "He taught Mason how to foul tonight." Then adds with a smile, "So I've got to keep him away from Mason."
Jason Kidd on getting back to Brooklyn: "We’ve been gone so long, this could be like training camp for us. We’ll be excited to see home."
Williams said he got elbowed in the forearm. Didn't seem too concerned about it, though admitted it made it tougher to shoot tonight.
Deron Williams has a big ice pack on his right wrist.
Kidd said Thornton did well defensively as well tonight.
As I said earlier, Marcus Thornton is taking advantage of his opportunity. Now has a game-high 23 points.
Bridgeman draws a big cheer from the crowd when he says the team's owner, Sen. Herb Kohl, "... is going to keep the team here in Milwaukee."
Bucks legend Junior Bridgeman being honored here during this break.
Loudest ovation of the night is for Junior Bridgeman, whose No. 2 is retired here in the rafters. Currently addressing crowd during timeout
O.J. Mayo doesn't seem to have done much conditioning since the last time he played the Nets. Looks even bigger this time around.
Nets lead 55-53 at half here in Milwaukee. Only way this can end is in double overtime, right? Would be fitting end to a 19-day trip for me.
I believe that's just the third or fourth shot outside the restricted area Andrei Kirilenko has hit all season long.
Marcus Thornton is taking advantage of his opportunity to get some playing time. 4-for-4 so far with 12 points.
Haven't seen Deron firing threes at this rate all season. Definitely has a confident stroke. Already 3-4 from downtown.
Jason Kidd said Garnett's back spasms don't seem to be a long-term issue. Said plan was to rest him today and see how he feels tomorrow.
Kidd doesn't think KG's spasms are long-term issue: "This is his rest day, so we’ll get him some proper rest and see how he feels tomorrow"
Summertime in that cutlass
I'll go ahead and say it: In reading my timeline this last week and seeing some comments, we've still got a long ways to go as a society.
Asked Paul Pierce about Jason Collins' week: "Truthfully, it’s been the greatest thing because he’s taken a lot of media pressure off of me"
Good morning world
Nets say Garnett is out with back spasms, rather than resting. Either way he isn't playing.
Kevin Garnett is out tonight (rest). Mason Plumlee will start.
No KG tonight. He's resting.
Sleep pattern all messed up smh
Put the heels on but can rock some jay's 2...
