HoopsHype Brooklyn Nets twitter
They're not going to say it publicly but Nets are looser, happier, without Kevin Garnett.
And a big, big shout out to @mikeking00 for creating the neon Gamblero avatars.
More insane: 161 of the Warriors +169 in the last 10 games has been in the first 3 quarters. They’re just destroying teams
The Warriors are +169 in their last 10 games. That’s insane
With the win, the Nets move into a tie with the Miami for seventh seed in the Eastern Conference. Half-game ahead of Boston.
Brook Lopez, on getting the game-winner on his birthday: "I'll be selfish and give myself a present."
Brook Lopez told Sarah that for his birthday he wanted a win and for "Alan (Anderson) to stop yelling 'Sparta!'" Simple pleasures.
Cleanthony Early misses at the buzzer and the Nets escape with a 100-98 win that never should've been anywhere near this close.
Knicks have no reason not to go for a game-winning 3-pointer here. Nets needed to hold for the final shot. We'll see if it works out.
Brook Lopez, for the win.
The Nets managed to score, but Deron Williams went far too fast. 100-98 with two seconds remaining after Lopez makes a putback.
Brook Lopez, offensive rebounder extraordinaire.
Jarrett Jack in for Markel Brown for the final play.
Nets with a classic April Fools prank, letting the Knicks tie this game up.
I cannot believe what I’m watching.
Wow. Wow. Wow.
Aggressive Brook Lopez!
This, to put it mildly, would be an impossibly bad loss. Nets up 96-95 with the ball with 1:34 remaining.
Lionel rested Deron way too long. Becoming a trend in these games when Deron is playing really well, too. I don't get it.
One-point game here at the Garden. Unreal.
This is the only time all game that the Nets haven’t built or rebuilt a big lead with Deron Williams in the game.
Here comes D-Will
Deron Williams checks in for Jarrett Jack. 6:15 left.
Lionel Hollins pushed the issue with Jarrett Jack. Finally, Deron Williams is back in.
That said: Lionel Hollins might die on this Jarrett Jack hill.
Jarrett Jack gets a lot of the criticism but Bojan Bogdanovic has had a lot of trouble defending Early.
Jarrett Jack is now a -18 in this game. Nets lead down to four as Lionel Hollins continues to ride a bench unit that's having no success.
Meanwhile, a 14-point third-quarter lead is down to four.
Maybe it's time to get Deron Williams, who has 26 points, back in the game.
Joe just hit a 3 from Brooklyn. Jarrett Jack seemed determined to get the Knicks back in it.
Some jerk arena host just tried to distract a guy shooting a free throw to win $10,000.
Madison Square Garden’s MC just arm-barred a guy as he was shooting a free throw and may have cost him $10,000.
Dance cam at the Garden reinforcing stereotypes that white people can't dance.
Deron Williams is on fire. 26 points and a +26 on the night.
Yeah. You just knew that outfit would get that cat on the jumbotron: http://t.co/CzIDiNMYkg
Meanwhile, the Knicks are still atrocious.
Deron Williams has played pretty well overall lately, but he's been outstanding tonight. Now has 23-5-5, Nets lead by 12.
That might’ve been the best fast break the Nets have run all season.
Deron Williams at the half: 18 points (8-13 FG), five rebounds, four assists, 0 turnovers, +15. Nets lead 58-53.
Deron Williams is out here partying like it’s 2009.
Deron has 13 points this quarter. He's killing it.
Deron Williams has been flirting lately with first career triple double. Tonight he has 19 points, six boards and three assists in 1st half
This is a really good Deron Williams shot chart so far. http://t.co/y0c5RKICsC
Sometimes it’s complicated, and sometimes Deron Williams is a +17 and Jarrett Jack a -10.
Deron Williams playing fantastic basketball right now...against the Knicks.
After taking a double-digit first-quarter lead, the Nets now only led by two. It’s amazing how consistent this is.
This guy's crown appears extravagant.
There's a dude in the crowd with a white fur coat. He's also wearing a crown.
Floater by Brook Lopez ends a 10-0 Knicks run. Nets lead 41-33.
A singer named Cody Simpson has received the loudest cheer of the night.
Again, Deron Williams has looked great.
Deron Williams has had some nice moments so far.
This is an incredibly depressing atmosphere. MSG is half-empty, and the fans that are here seem like they're trying not to pay attention.
Lou Amundson guarding Brook Lopez probably isn't going to work out well for the Knicks.
I feel like I’m at a library.
Markel staying in game and is at the free throw line.
Or not. Brown stays in the game. Seems fine.
Brown staying in and shooting his foul shots
Brown hit the ground hard and his head slammed against the floor. I assume he’ll need to do concussion tests. That was scary.
Markel is up and heads to the bench.
Markel Brown takes a hard spill on his right side after going up for an alley and getting fouled by Langston Galloway. Is still down.
