Ian Egale on that Markel Brown 360 dunk: "Whoa! MarKELEVATION!"
Markel Brown throws down a 360 dunk on a fast break. Lucky for him it went in, or else Lionel Hollins probably would have killed him.
MARKEL BROWN 360 DUNK ALERT
Thaddeus Young just banked in a free throw.
Brook Lopez with a block on one end, offensive rebound and-one on the other. So something good's happened this quarter.
Don't think this game could get much worse than it's been so far. Nets trail 15-4 early. Now 2-for-15 from field, have four turnovers
Rough day for KG’s teams: the Celtics are losing to the Knicks, the Nets are down 15-4 to the Pelicans, and the Wolves are shooting 0-for-9.
Immediately seeing Deron Williams and Jarrett Jack together. That combination has not worked at all this season.
The Wolves are 0-for-9. KG's 0-for-2. His misses were the most exciting, though.
Quick hook for Mason Plumlee as Omer Asik already has four rebounds against him.
Omer Asik just committed one of the most blatant travels I've ever seen. Think he took four steps before trying to shoot.
Flip Saunders talked openly about how it would be different for KG to finish his career in Minnesota or Boston. Now he'll get to do that.
I know there's lots to do here in The Big Easy, but uh ... http://t.co/V08imNX79O
Pretty fantastic job by the Timberwolves honoring Kevin Garnett before tonight's game in Minneapolis.
Thanks in advance, whoever uploads the KG Minnesota intro.
Markel's cheering section is in the house at the Smoothie King Center. Just made some noise for him during pregame intros.
Looks like we are about to be joined by a few hundred friends to watch Nets-Pelicans here in the Big Easy.
Nets sticking with same starters: Deron Williams, Markel Brown, Alan Anderson, Joe Johnson, Mason Plumlee. Jarrett Jack is active.
Lionel Hollins once again says he likes having Brook come off the bench because of the lineup balance it creates between first/second units.
Really happy to hear Craig Sager is coming back next week. Watching TNT games hasn't been the same without him.
Jack then, of course, laughed and answered the question. One of the best guys in the league to deal with on a daily basis.
Asked Jarrett Jack about lineup data this morning. Gave me a big smile and said, "Is this an analytics question, like Charles Barkley?"
No Sloan for me this year with Friday-Saturday Nets games. Good luck to all the warm-climate media who went to NY for All-Star & now Boston.
Kickoff for NYCFC in about an hour. Jason Kreis going with a reserve lineup for first 60 minutes. No David Villa (groin).
If Michele Roberts thinks there's a lot of standing around in a NBA locker room she's apparently never visited a MLB clubhouse during access
Will say this: there are media members who don't ask questions and don't write stories. But they're hanging out in the dining area.
Love to see M Roberts try to ask a question, only to be told by PR person to wait because player isn't ready. Then she has to stand there.
If Michele Roberts wants to change this, then players could come out of the locker room to speak. But I'm guessing they won't do that.
We're trying to be respectful by waiting to talk to a player who is getting ready in front of his locker, playing on his phone, etc. ...
Is we're waiting for a player who may or may not show up for the scheduled availability, maybe for a second or two before he leaves. Or. ...
Only thing incredible about what Michele Roberts is saying is her misinformation. The reason reporters are standing in the locker room. ..
"Incredible invasion of privacy" makes it sound like reporters are sneaking into NBA locker rooms
Deron on Rose's injury: "Man, it’s just tough. I really feel for him. He was just getting back to kind of getting his groove."
Jarrett Jack on Derrick Rose's injury: "It hurts man. Great dude. I know how hard he works, puts a lot of pressure on himself to be great."
Nets going up against a Pelicans team tonight without Ryan Anderson, Anthony Davis, and Jrue Holiday. Talk about opportunity.
Lot of people wouldn't have the courage to walk away from eight figures for their own mental health. Wish Larry Sanders well.
And with that last tweet, I will never be allowed in the Philippines.
In Philippines, Manny Pacquiao is pro basketball player (can't play), pop star (can't sing), movie star (can't act) and a senator (c'mon).
So the players know that the team is being sold while ownership claims there's nothing to see here.
Still can't believe the Derrick Rose news. Just wild. It's like the cat is snake bit.
That was the same knee Rose had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in last year. Seems all but certain he'll be done for the season.
Absolutely terrible news: Derrick Rose to undergo surgery for a meniscus tear in his right knee.
Derrick Rose has had a torn ACL in his left knee and has now torn his meniscus in his right knee twice. Awful.
With Pacers and Pistons losses, Nets remain one game ahead of Hornets for eighth, 1.5 ahead of Pacers, Pistons, two games ahead of Celtics.
Also, I don't care if we're in the Big 10. Just beat Duke.
Big win for the Terps. Haven't been this excited about UMD hoops since Lonny Baxter, Steve Blake and Juan Dixon.
From what I've heard, NYCFC will try a different formation Wed, not Kreis' diamond. Still trying to settle on what they'll be moving forward
Tomorrow will mark the first time Markel Brown has played in his native Louisiana since his high school senior year. Yep, it's been a minute
Lionel Hollins gave major props to assistant John Welch. Said improvement of Markel, Cory is a product of Welch constantly working with them
If a player isn't on an NBA roster on March 1, he can sign after and be eligible for the playoffs. Only isn't if he's waived after March 1.
Just for a clarification on the playoff eligibility rule: players can't be on an NBA roster after March 1 & be eligible for playoff rosters.
Hollins also said that Bojan Bogdanovic would have started if he was healthy, but that Markel Brown would get playing time regardless.
Lionel Hollins said earlier that Deron Williams will remain a starter and that Jarrett Jack will have limited minutes tomorrow in his return
So not only did the 76ers get to the salary floor by claiming Thomas Robinson, they dropped Denver under it and kept Nets from getting him.
Question: If the 76ers wanted Robinson from the start, why didn’t they contact him until making a last-second waiver claim?
