From the great teammate department: Joe Johnson said he could've stayed home for tonight's game too, but wanted to be here for support.
Joe Johnson isn't playing today but is the only one of top players to make trip to Boston. Said he wanted to come for moral support.
Hollins on subject of draft lottery reform: "How many draft picks do we have coming up, anyway?" After some laughter, "It's a moot point."
Hollins says Kirilenko almost certainly won't play tonight short of crazy foul trouble. Bogdanovic and Teletovic both will play off bench.
Looks like it's between Kalin Lucas and Patrick Christopher for the last spot on the Grizzlies roster.
“We didn’t leave when the police used tear gas on us,” he said. “Why would a single Kenny G tune shake our determination?”
Having the worst record ensures nothing in the NBA as far as transforming team in draft. Just ask all the perennial terrible teams.
Three coaches received votes from GMs as best in NBA -- Popovich, Thibodeau and Hollins. Of course, Pop received 93 percent of the votes.
Nets basically shutout of GMs poll. Garnett, Hollins, Bogdanovic are honorable mentions in categories. 77 percent think Raptors win division
Paul Pierce with the vintage move, walking away and putting on his sunglasses mid-question to end a group interview at Wizards shootaround.
Nets starters tonight: Marquis Teague, Sergey Karasev, Alan Anderson, Cory Jefferson, Mason Plumlee. Joe Johnson will not play.
They should do a quick recap before the last three minutes of every Castle episode so that NBA Twitter has some idea of what's going on.
It no agreement on smoothing in the TV money happens, cap is likely to jump to over $90 million that summer -- when Kevin Durant hits FA.
One thing that stood out from our conversation: I'm not expecting an agreement on a smoothing in of new TV money before it kicks in in 2016.
According to a press release, this rookie card is expected to sell for over $80,000 at an auction next month. http://t.co/LnqMBDVo5g
No Deron Williams (rest) tomorrow " along with Kevin Garnett, Brook Lopez and Markel Brown. Don't expect to see much of Joe Johnson either.
Don't think this is not a dig today from Kidd to B King on last season “Injuries, if you’re not a deep team, can put you in a bad position"
The "M-V-P" chant breaks out as Jerome Jordan steps to the free-throw line.
Jerome Jordan is getting MVP chants. I think the fans took Lionel's Kareem joke a little too seriously.
Even Kareem Abdul Jordan misses a shot occasionally
Again in case you were wondering: "Saltalamacchia" has more letters than "Antetokounmpo"
Wrap on his right wrist/thumb has affected his shot, but Deron Williams continues to look quick with his dribble and confident w/ moves.
The ball went into the stands and the fan that caught it mercifully tried to make the game come to an end. Sadly, she didn't get her wish.
A ball went into the stands. A fan would've give it back. Think the guy should've just left. Maybe they wouldn't have had a replacement.
FWIW, Bojan is shooting 17.6 percent from 3-point range in the preseason (3-for-17, 1 for his last 13). Adjustment from shorter 3-point line
This may seem boring to everyone else, but it was the best part of the game for everyone sitting on press row.
Highlight of the preseason: the man who yelled, "What up, Blatche?" last year just yelled it at Jarrett Jack. Jack responds, "What's up?"
SOmething is off with Mason Plumlee's free throws. The one-hand line drive has resulted in five straight misses.
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)
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."
"You'll find, a lot of times, that I have no clue what I’m doing." — funnyman Lionel Hollins, today.
“I don’t want to get into his personal bathroom habits." — Lionel Hollins, declining to answer a question about how sick Kevin Garnett is.
Hollins says he just wants to see a different look with Kirilenko starting in place of Teletovic. Both will play.
Hollins doesn't have a plan in mind going into the game in terms of minutes.
Andrei Kirilenko will start in place of Mirza Teletovic tonight.
