#Raptors Patrick Patterson re #Nets “We know we’re a bigger team. We’re a more athletic team so getting outrebounded by them is inexcusable"

Mike Mazzeo

Let's just have an endless #Blues #Blackhawks series. These games continue to exceed the highest of expectations.

Mike Mazzeo

Twisted wrister by the great #Tank

Tim Bontemps

Dorell Wright is having the game for Portland that no one has had for the Nets so far in their series.

Mike Mazzeo

Albert Pujols is on pace for 62 home runs and 154 RBIs. Are we to believe this pace can continue?

Tim Bontemps

So, wait a second: Shaq is actually praising Dwight? Has this ever happened before?

Rod Boone

Nets out-rebounded 97-67 in series by big, young Raptors nwsdy.li/1jDNLzQ #brooklynnets

Tim Bontemps

And now I get to listen to the great Ian Eagle! Fantastic.

Tim Bontemps

What the hell was that?

Rod Boone

This game is yet another example of why the #NBA playoffs are so fun. #Bobcats won't go away. Making #Heat earn it.

Tim Bontemps

I like how the analysts insisted that was going to be a flagrant two and they didn't even review it.

Tim Bontemps

Have so much respect for Al Jefferson. After watching Joe Johnson up close last year, I know how tough plantar fasciitis is to play through.

Mike Mazzeo

Pretty sure that's the first time in #MLB history an umpire touched a player's neck to find a foreign substance. Unconfirmed.

Mike Mazzeo

Every pitcher does it, but no pitcher does it like Michael Pineda

Mike Mazzeo

Michael Pineda should really wash that dirt off his neck #Yankees #ha

Mike Mazzeo

Last time Kevin Garnett played more than 20 minutes a game? Feb. 13. #Nets

Tom Lorenzo

Former Raptors player (and one-time Net) calls Kevin Garnett 'a talker who can't back it up!' #Nets sbn.to/1igxeAt

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets Game 2 did a 2.35 TV rating on YES. #NYK does a 2.17 on average. Why would #NBA give calls to a small market team (in big market)?

Rod Boone

#NBA releases a bunch of scenarios that'll have outcome on #Nets Game 5 tip time vs. #Raptors next Wednesday. Bottom line: it's at 7 or 8 pm

Mike Mazzeo

The TV scenarios for Game 5 are a million times worse than trying to figure out #NBA magic numbers

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets #Raptors Game 5 will be at some time between 6-8 p.m. a week from now depending on a million scenarios.

Tim Bontemps

If Steve Clifford can win a single playoff game playing Cody Zeller and Anthony Tolliver together, he should get a lifetime contract.

Tim Bontemps

Nets are bottom 10 in 3-point shooting on the road since Jan. 1, and top 10 at home.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets have struggled from 3-point range through the first two games, but expect that to change back in Brooklyn.

Andrew Keh

Yesterday's Nets game was the second highest-rated and second most-viewed Nets telecast ever on YES, the network said.

#Nets starters have far outplayed bench, plus seems like Kidd needs to tweak his early fourth-quarter lineups espn.go.com/blog/new-york/…

Fred Kerber

#Raptors DeMar DeRozan had 30 v #Nets in G 2 never doubts his shot. "I feel like I can get the shot off & its got a good chance 2 go in"

Fred Kerber

DeMar DeRozan on #Raptors facing snakepit v #Nets in Game3. Its good. "It brings everybody’s competitive level higher. It's good 4 the game"

Fred Kerber

#Raptors DCasey: "Theres nobody in the league that gives us a chance against a veteran championship laded team as Brooklyn except ourselves"

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets bench this series: 46 points, 38.3 percent shooting, 4-for-20 3-point range, 6-for-14 free-throw stripe

Fred Kerber

#Raptors Kyle Lowry sed Big East environments worse than NBA. He loves it: "It’s everybody against U, us against the world, what U play 4"

Fred Kerber

#Raptors expect hostile Brooklyn environment v #Nets Kyle Lowry:"Their crowd is loud, gets chants going. The crowd always gives U energy"

Fred Kerber

Impending free agent Kyle Lowry on #Raptors: "I love my team and I’ll tell anybody that."

Fred Kerber

#Raptors Greivis Vasquez sed he played with 2 outstanding tough shot makers: teammate DeMar DeRozan & #Pelicans Ryan Anderson, ex #Nets guy

Fred Kerber

#Raptors Dwane Casey on his guys rebound advantage v #Nets "I wouldn’t call it dominance. I call it taking advantage of certain situations"

Mike Mazzeo

No matter what numbers you look at, the #Nets starters have been way, way, way, way better than the bench.

Mike Mazzeo

Well that was an unmitigated disaster of a conference call because of background noise

Tim Bontemps

Someone appears to be calling into Kidd's conference call either from a radio studio or a concert.

Tom Lorenzo

Jason Kidd said "we have the best fans, we're excited to be home." #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Kidd says #Nets will be excited to be home. "We have the best fans."

Tim Bontemps

Jason Kidd is asked if he is worried about whether Paul Pierce will struggle matching up with bigger Toronto frontline: "No."

Tom Lorenzo

I heard about 30% of the things said on this conference call.

Mike Mazzeo

Asked Kidd about Pierce's "soft comments" I'd tell you his answer but I couldn't hear it. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Details@uuords it was that shot he took sandwiched between the derozan jumpers for 89-85 that was ill-advised

The quotes from Pierce and Garnett from last night are a big part of why the Nets wanted them. Team lacked leadership/responsibility prior.

I don't know what award you want to give to Taj Gibson, but he deserves something.

Mike Mazzeo

Paul Pierce has had eight single-digit scoring games in his playoff career (138 games) #Nets Had a 3, 4, 6, two 7s and three 9s

Mike Mazzeo

Only six teams in the last 15 years have won a playoff game despite turning the ball over on at least 24 percent of their possessions (ESPN)

Tim Bontemps

KG on 4th Q defense: "Thirty-six points, that’s too many points for anybody. Pre-school, Little League, YMCA, Raptors. Too many points."

Tim Bontemps

Kevin Garnett: "They did what they’re supposed to do, defend home, and it’s time for us to go home and do the same."

Paul Pierce said the Nets were "soft" tonight and that's where the game was lost "in the trenches."

Raptors tie series at one apiece with 100-95 win over the #Nets sbn.to/QDHjkW via @Nets Daily

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets are 11-for-48 from 3-point range in the series. Got outrebounded by 22 tonight (52-30). 41-4 now when leading after 3.

Tim Bontemps

Nets lose 100-95 to the Raptors, and the series goes back to Brooklyn tied at a game apiece. 30 points for DeRozan, 18 for Johnson.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets lose. Series tied at 1. Game 3 Friday night at Barclays Center.

Tim Bontemps

Nets had their chance to close this series out tonight, and they blew it. This one was there for the taking.

Tim Bontemps

Not exactly textbook inbounds play defense from either team here.

Mike Mazzeo

Pierce had a good luck. Not this time. #Nets

Rod Boone

Paul Pierce missed a three that would've put the Nets ahead.

Mike Mazzeo

Or so it seemed ...

Andrew Keh

You can't buy that shot at Costco or Walgreens.

Mike Mazzeo

Landry Fields. #Raptors well on their way. #Nets

Stefan Bondy

DeMar DeRozan has 10 points in the fourth quarter and Raptors lead by four with 2:10 left. Big possession for the Nets after this timeout.

Mike Mazzeo

DeRozan. Bad shot by Pierce at the other end. Rushed. No one to rebound. 89-85 #Raptors.

Tim Bontemps

The Nets will live with DeRozan making those shots. Not quality looks, but credit to him for making them.
