Not saying the #NBA preseason is awful but I'm kinda missing hearing questions about Derek Jeter's farewell tour

Mike Mazzeo

12-70 #Nets vs. 2014-15 #Sixers: Who wins?

Tim Bontemps

This may seem boring to everyone else, but it was the best part of the game for everyone sitting on press row.

Tim Bontemps

Highlight of the preseason: the man who yelled, "What up, Blatche?" last year just yelled it at Jarrett Jack. Jack responds, "What's up?"

Fred Kerber

Improved #Knicks defense suffocated #Bucks into 59 percent shooting and 32 points in 1st Q.

Fred Kerber

#Knicks Fisher not worried on D w/Stoudemire at 5:"What gives us confidence...is our defensive system & fact its all 5 guys’ responsibility"

Rod Boone

Watching the #Sixers feels like they pulled 5 cats off the street and said, "Ya'll want next?" #whoaretheseguys

Stefan Bondy

SOmething is off with Mason Plumlee's free throws. The one-hand line drive has resulted in five straight misses.

Tim Bontemps

Mason Plumlee having a rough night at the FT line. Now officially 0-for-4, but actually is 0-for-5 (had one re-do because of lane violation)

Fred Kerber

Yes, #Knicks Amare Stoudemire has heard from pals about red wine baths: "Had a couple calls. Close friend of mine sending me cases of wine"

Fred Kerber

#Knicks Amare Stoudemire sez he rejuvenated feeling good, healthy: "My joy is there. My love of the game is there. I feel like I’m 19 again"

Lenn Robbins

Henry Sims w a rebound putback for the #Sixers. You could hear Lionel Hollins' stomach growl. The #Nets will improve on the glass, Or else.

Stefan Bondy

KG won't travel to BOS for Wed game w/ stomach flu. How sick is he, Lionel Hollins? "I don’t want to get into his personal bathroom habits."

Andrew Keh

"You'll find, a lot of times, that I have no clue what I’m doing." — funnyman Lionel Hollins, today.

Andrew Keh

“I don’t want to get into his personal bathroom habits." — Lionel Hollins, declining to answer a question about how sick Kevin Garnett is.

Fred Kerber

#Knicks DFisher called Kidd's move to head coaching before his "uniform was dry" after retiring as player "ground breaking"

Fred Kerber

#Knicks Derek Fisher asked what was his first reaction when he heard Jason Kidd was going into coaching: "Smart"

Mike Mazzeo

KG probably not going to Boston Hollins said #Nets

Fred Kerber

Amare Stoudemire starting at center for #Knicks tonight

Tim Bontemps

Hollins says he just wants to see a different look with Kirilenko starting in place of Teletovic. Both will play.

Tim Bontemps

Hollins doesn't have a plan in mind going into the game in terms of minutes.

Tom Lorenzo

Kirilenko will start tonight over Mirza. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

AK is starting for Mirza tonight #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Andrei Kirilenko will start in place of Mirza Teletovic tonight.

Rajon Rondo not ruling out opener vs. #Nets es.pn/1rYeryE

Andrew Keh

The Nets that aren't injured or ill are jet-lagged to the point that it's impairing their ability to play basketball well.

Mike Mazzeo

Garnett and Brown will also not play tonight with stomach viruses #Nets

Willie Reed

Love this little guy more than anything in the world.. Straight up!!!

SOURCE: NYCFC midfielder Frank Lampard has thigh strain, didn't travel with Manchester to Russia  nydn.us/ZLFbMO

Stefan Bondy

Amazing that Ratner would go to such great lengths to build arena in Brooklyn and then consider selling it at a loss, as SBJ reports.

Stefan Bondy

The Nets played a 44-minute game but only seemed to notice how tired they were nydn.us/ZBTt1U

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets in need of communication on defense es.pn/1zhSkNP

Stefan Bondy

Regarding Lampard's injury, heard it's a thigh strain, not expected 2 b longterm. Didn't travel with City to Moscow, rehabbing in Manchester

Willie Reed

S/O to the fam coming up and supporting me yesterday. I appreciate it. @liveb4extinc @yalonda218… instagram.com/p/uX1Hb6ptmy/

Nets very much a work in progress nwsdy.li/1qXfG21 #Nets

Stefan Bondy

Nets saying they've been jet lagged and tired for last three days. Who wants to go to China next year?

Mike Mazzeo

Views split on shorter game's effects #Nets m.espn.go.com/nba/story?stor… via @espnnba

Mike Mazzeo

Plumlee said the defensive communication wasn't the same without KG/Brook on the court #Nets

Andrew Keh

The Nets players said they are still very jet-lagged after their promotional tour of China.

Rod Boone

Lionel Hollins on Jerome Jordan, who was 7-for-7 with 17 points: "Jerome who? I thought that was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar out there." #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins on Jerome Jordan scoring 17 and going 7-for-7: "Jerome who? I thought that was Kareem Abdul-Jabbar."

Mike Mazzeo

Lionel on Jordan: Who? I thought that was Kareem Abdul Jabar

Tim Bontemps

That being said, 44 minute games are never happening anyway. Players union would understandably never go for it.

Tim Bontemps

Today's game clocked in at 1:58. Would think a regular season game would take at least a few minutes longer, though.

Rod Boone

Time of game according to official boxscore: 1 hour, 58 minutes.

Mike Mazzeo

Final time of game: 1:58 #Nets

Rod Boone

Unofficial time for today's 44-minute contest between #Nets and #Celtics: 2 hours, 11 minutes.

Mike Mazzeo

And that concludes the 44-minute preseason game. #Nets now just two games and five practices away from meaningful basketball

Mike Mazzeo

Rumors of #Nets' desire to fire Kidd 'had legs' es.pn/1CHqiHN via @ESPNNewYork

Stefan Bondy

Feeling a little sad for the man formerly known as the BrooklynKnight, who has been unmasked and now just wears a t-shirt at Nets games.

Tim Bontemps

Nets are being outrebounded 35-25 and outscored 30-18 in points in paint and 14-0 in second chance points. All ugly numbers for them.

Mike Mazzeo

FWIW, sloppy games for both Teletovic and Bogdanovic today

Rod Boone

Evan Turner is begging the refs to get Mr. Whammy out of the way behind basket during a pair of Jeff Green free throws. Joe Johnson chuckles

Andrew Keh

Even Turner is asking the referee if Mr. Whammy is allowed.

Mike Mazzeo

PER33 numbers through the roof RT @uuords Jarrett Jack has 15 points in the first 22-minute half.

Tim Bontemps

Nets are getting killed on the glass today. Have given up 13 offensive rebounds in first half, being outrebounded 29-17.

Tim Bontemps

Much like with Shaun Livingston last year appears if Nets have size mismatch at either wing spot they'll but Bogdanovic/Johnson on the block

Tim Bontemps

If the preseason has been any indication, the Nets are going to try to post up Bojan Bogdanovic a lot this season.

Lenn Robbins

#Nets are up 46-34 but guarantee Lionel Hollins won't be pleased w this number #Celtics hold a 27-15 edge on the glass. @barclayscenter

Rod Boone

Frustrating day for Joe so far. He's barking at himself after a few misses. He's 1 for 4. Shot is a bit off. #itsjustpreseasonthough

Andrew Keh

What up, Bogdanovic? does not have the same ring to it.

Andrew Keh

Blatche would look at the guy and laugh every time. It was a simple and beautiful gesture.

Lenn Robbins

Joe Johnson is as unselfish a superstar as there is in the #NBA,,rebound, pushes the ball, drives, finds @Deron Williams for an open 3 #Nets

Andrew Keh

The guy with the impossibly raspy voice who yelled "What up, Blatche?" every game last season has no one to yell what up to, and that's sad

Tim Bontemps

Despite the fact the Celtics have been shooting horribly, they are outrebounding the Nets 22-14. Rebounding is going to be an issue.

Lenn Robbins

Must be the shoes..@Jarrett Jack in neon orange kicks with 11 points on 4-of-5 shooting as #Nets surge to a 33-19 lead over #celtics

Tim Bontemps

Just because Sly Fox wasn't as bad as the BrooklyKnight doesn't make it a good mascot.

Lenn Robbins

That's the second time this season @Deron Williams has perfectly executed a pick and roll by lofting a lob pass to a big for a dunk #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Greg Maddux once threw a CG in a game that lasted 1:46. He also threw a 76-pitch CG. Baseball wouldn't need a committee if he always started

Lenn Robbins

Eleven minutes in the books, #Nets lead the #Celtics 24-17 @barclayscenter. @Jarrett Jack showing fans he can fill Shaun Livingston's shoes

Tim Bontemps

On a separate note, I'm not sure why so many people advocate for the return of Sly Fox. That was a terrible mascot.

Mike Mazzeo

Average #NBA game length: 2:15, at this rate this game should be more like a great Greg Maddux start

Tim Bontemps

Nets lead 24-17 after one. I would've voted for an 11-minute game today, but that's just me.

Stefan Bondy

I don't know about flowing, but this game is going fast.

Lenn Robbins

Jarrett Jack loses the ball on the way up, flings in a corner jumper and raises his arms towards the #Nets bench as if to say 'Who knew?'

Tim Bontemps

The officials are seemingly aiding the flow of the 44-minute game by not calling anything at either end. Missed travels at both ends.

Stefan Bondy

Nets playing experimental 44-minute game. 1st qtr running time was 20 min. At this rate we'll be home to watch second half of Giants loss

Rod Boone

Interesting lineup Lionel Hollins has on floor to end first quarter here: Jarrett Jack, Alan Anderson, Joe, AK and Mason. #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Honestly forgot that Marcus Thornton was coming back to Brooklyn today with the Celtics.

Tim Bontemps

Up-and-down first quarter for Mason Plumlee, but he's doing a good job of running the floor and to the rim.

Lenn Robbins

The #Nets did not ask Mirza Teletovic to work on his low post game. He realized at 6-9, 245 w a deadly 3-point shot, a post game could help

Mike Mazzeo

#NBA should institute an experimental rule in which the #Nets change their in-game music. Stagnant. Needs more variety.

Andrew Keh

Mr. and Mrs. Whammy have apparently returned from China without stomach viruses.

Lenn Robbins

Welcome to 44 minutes of basketball. #Nets and #Celtics to test 11-minute quarters "We're the guinea pigs,'' jokes Deron Willams

Andrew Keh

It doesn't look like there are any barbers on duty today at the Barclays Center barber shop.

Rod Boone

Stomach virus claims another: #Nets now say Markel Brown is out today vs. #Celtics.

Mike Mazzeo

Markel Brown (stomach virus) is out today too #Nets

Lenn Robbins

Kevin Garnett (stomach bug) out vs #Cletics..No Brook Lopez, too. Opportunity knocks for Teletovic, who was great in China #Nets

Stefan Bondy

Gerald Wallace = Available tonight at the Barclays Center.

Tim Bontemps

No Kevin Garnett against the Celtics today. Still out with a stomach virus.

Stefan Bondy

No Kevin Garnett tonight. Stomach virus.

Andrew Keh
