Preseason is now over for the Knicks and Nets. Let's do it for real, shall we?
Nets preseason is over. They lose to the Celtics in a rough one, 100-86.
The Celtics close out the preseason with a 5-3 record thanks to a 100-86 win over the Nets. Smart: 16 pts, 4 asts. Sully: 15 pts, 17 rebs.
The next time the Nets will be in action is one week from tonight back here in Boston, for the start of the regular season.
The Celtics are blowing the Nets out through three quarters, 84-68. Sullinger's up to 13 points, 14 rebounds. Wallace has 10 points, 4 asts.
Brandon Bass, with one three-pointer in his nine NBA seasons, just hit his second in two games against the Nets.
If Sullinger only played the preseason Nets he might average 20 and 20 and be declared undisputed king of the basketball world.
The Nets have four international players on the court. Always interested to watch different styles of basketball come together.
We're knotted up at 25-25 after the first. Green lead the Celtics w/ 8 pts, while Sullinger has 6 rebs. C's D limited Nets to 36.8% shooting
Six minutes into the game: Jared Sullinger -> 6 rebounds The Brooklyn Nets -> 5 rebounds.

Nets basically shutout of GMs poll. Garnett, Hollins, Bogdanovic are honorable mentions in categories. 77 percent think Raptors win division
Pierce did not see Kidd + himself leaving Nets after just 1 year. He talked to Kidd and said Kidd "has his reasons the way things went down"
Pierce said he was disappointed things did not work out in BKN, citing he and KG came to Nets to win with Kidd. Understands business part
Paul Pierce says no hard feelings with the Nets but he was surprised Nets didn't re-sign him. Said Kidd's exit was like a domino effect
