Game is tied for the first time since the opening tip on a Trevor Ariza 3-pointer. 48-all with 3:18 to go in first half.
Smart cut by Markel Brown. Harden had slipped off to try to help after D-Will-Joe screen set up mismatch for Joe. Easy floater.
Lopez, Jack both with a rough stretch this second quarter.
Ineffective night at the moment for Brook. Once again, it seems like him and Mason can't get going on the same night.
The Nets can't make a substitution properly. First Joe Johnson took out Thaddeus Young incorrectly. Then Young took Johnson out incorrectly.
Game like this really shows Dwight’s impact. Nets have gotten inside at will with him out. Already have 24 points in the paint.
Former Knick Pablo Prigioni checks in and immediately throws an alley-oop pass to Corey Brewer for a layup.
Nets are opening the second quarter with Jack, Brown, Anderson, Young and Lopez.
Nets up 36-25 after one. Plumlee with 11 points, Brown with seven, Johnson, Williams, Anderson with 6. Starting five played whole quarter.
Deron Williams just drove into a ton of contact in the paint and hit a nice floater. Did I see a ghost?
Mason is playing so well that Lionel has yet to go to Brook and there's a minute left in the first quarter. Brook would usually be in by now
Plumlee has 11 first-quarter points. Getting the easy looks at the rim he & this team needs.
Mason has 11 points, 2 boards. Great start for him after looking lost since all-star break.
Also doesn't hurt that Mason Plumlee is having one of his best games in weeks. Already has 10 points in 10 minutes.
Should be clear the Nets are getting a lot of nice looks inside because they're having success getting to the rim.
Confidence just oozing out of Markel, He just stripped The Beard in the backcourt.
Nets off to an excellent start here in Houston. Small lineup is getting them a lot of nice looks inside.
Deron Williams loves that All-Star break rest.
Lionel Hollins giving Markel pointers on what to do defensively with James Harden.
The Nets are up 12-2 on the Rockets.
James Harden just fouled Alan Anderson on a 3, and then high-fived the ref. I’m so confused.
Niagara grad Calvin Murphy is wearing an entertaining outfit tonight
I don’t really get the craziness about who starts and who doesn’t. Lopez is averaging 30 minutes a game these days. That’s what matters.
When I asked Hollins about Plumlee, he said Mason will keep starting, has no plans to change it. Said he just needs to start playing better.
Bogdanovic didn't participate in any team portions of shootaround this morning. Seems unlikely he'd be able to play tomorrow.
Sounds like unless something changes dramatically, Bojan Bogdanovic won't be playing tomorrow in Dallas, either.
Nets will stick with same four-out+Plumlee starting lineup. Bogdanovic still out with sprained ankle.
Bojan Bogdanovic is out. Lineup is the same.
Could probably do a scale low-to-high for smaller & bigger games. This idea fascinates me.
If the NBA offered a la carte games on League Pass, how much would you pay per game?
Negotiating those rights with national/local broadcasts could be a nightmare, but that’s kind of a brilliant idea.
Nets beat the Rockets last year, but Dwight didn’t play in that game.
Dwight Howard has won his last 13 games against the Nets. Nets haven’t beaten a Dwight team since April 11, 2009.
Mental health for athletes is one of the underexplored frontiers. Tricky because course of treatment isn’t cut and dry.

Kevin Love fit in really well on that shot.
I think the Cavs are going to be just fine. Not sure about the dress, however.
Steve Kerr is cruising towards a second technical.
The dress is Cavs-Warriors is on why are you all talking about a dress
Ruben Patterson at Cavs-Warriors. Kobe isn’t. Stopped again.
Then Shaq says Steph Curry’s nickname should be Manny Splaquio. Let’s start the game.
Former 6’4” power forward Charles Barkley says 6’7” power forward Draymond Green is not tough because he’s a “little fella"
And today, Michele Roberts sends out a media alert she wants disseminated.
Always a good day when I get my entry for this year's Jerome delivered to my email inbox.
Last year, asked Jason Kidd about the Sloan Conference, as his team had sent six attendees. He had no idea what I was talking about.
If I learned anything today it’s that America is ill-prepared for a llama uprising.
Law enforcement, 2015 http://t.co/4EbNCYFef7
They've been captured. Helluva run.
If they don’t catch the llama by 4:00 he by law becomes the mayor of Phoenix
The Nets have shown interest in signing the white llama to a 10-day contract. (cc: Sam Hinkie)
Very much enjoying the live play-by-play on CNN
"Llamas on the lam"
DON’T TOUCH THE LLAMA
Where do I punch in for the bimonthly stats vs. eye test argument that pretends the two are mutually exclusive?
For Deron Williams you could go back to Dec. 5 and it's 9.3 points, 6.4 assists, 31.7 percent shooting (29 3s). Does look better since ASB.
